This thesis is revolved around three main inquiries. Firstly, the types of the three Libyan ceasefires, the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA), the Palermo Conference Conclusions and the Permanent Ceasefire of Libya, are examined. The examination was made with three sections structured by Malin Åkebo, (i) initiation, (ii) form and content and (iii) implementation and unfolding of the process. Then, how the ceasefires have influenced the peace processes of 2015, 2018, and 2020 and how the peace processes have influenced the ceasefires are scrutinised. To comprehend the dynamics of this reciprocal relation, six factors of influence, recognition, trust, claims, international involvement, contextual changes, and intra-party dynamics, are taken into consideration. It has been found as a result of the analyses that the LPA and the Palermo Conclusions have derailed the Libyan Peace Process while the Permanent Ceasefire agreement brought a peaceful change to the process.


New methods for decentralised sensor fusion and extended target tracking models
Köksal, Hilal; Özkan, Emre; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-12-16)
The focus of this thesis is two-fold; the first study investigates the use of student-t distribution for the decentralised multi-sensor fusion problem. Multi-sensor fusion can suffer from several artefacts such as low channel capacity, delays in the communication channels, the correlation in the acquired information and sensor biases. When combined with these artefacts, the errors in the local sensors’ estimates can result in conflicting information at the fusion center. Such conflicts may later be resolved...
The effects of the material density and dimensions of the landslide on the generated tsunamis
İnsel, Işıl; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
In this thesis study; mechanism and modeling of tsunamis generated by landslides are investigated. Landslide parameters affecting the surface wave characterisics are studied. In order to understand occurance of this kind of tsunamis, among many historical tsunamis, the ones that are triggered by landslides are detected and studied. The generation of the landslide generated tsunamis are modeled using TWO-LAYER model, which solves nonlinear long wave equations simultaneously within two interfacing layers with...
Evaluating an Immersive Virtual Learning Environment for Learning How to Design in Human-Scale
Sonmez, Orkun; Sorguç, Arzu (2018-01-01)
This paper presents a part of a thesis research conducted at METU. It proposes a method for evaluating the effects of an immersive virtual learning environment (IVLE) which is integrated in an architectural design/learning activity. Proposed IVLE application and design/learning activity were designed through a synthesis on constructive learning, problem-based learning, immersive technologies, and intended learning outcomes (ILOs) in learning how to design in human-scale. Immersive experience of bodily inter...
Investigation of the significance of periodicity information in speaker identification
Gürsoy, Seçil; Çiloğlu, Tolga; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis; general feature selection methods and especially the use of periodicity and aperiodicity information in speaker verification task is searched. A software system is constructed to obtain periodicity and aperiodicity information from speech. Periodicity and aperiodicity information is obtained by using a 16 channel filterbank and analyzing channel outputs frame by frame according to the pitch of that frame. Pitch value of a frame is also found by using periodicity algorithms. Parzen window (ke...
Electromagnetic compatibility of electric power quality monitor according to EN 61326 standard
Yaman, Özgür; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis; Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) of Electric Power Quality Monitor developed within the scope of National Power Quality Project has been investigated according to EN 61326 standard. Both immunity and emission tests have been carried out in EMC laboratories of ELDAS and ASELSAN for the device under test. Necessary counter measures such as using electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters and transient voltage suppressors, shielding the case of device with EMI protective materials have been ...
