We suggest a procedure for model update, based on detection of structural breaks at unknown change-points. The procedure makes use of the SupF test introduced by Andrews (1993). We apply this procedure for modelling the common stock index returns in the İstanbul Stock Exchange for the 10 year period of 1989 - 1998. The underlying model consists simply of a mean plus noise, with occasional jumps in the level of mean at unknown time instances. The problem is the detection of this jump and the corresponding model update. We find critical values for the SupF test statistic by using the Bootstrap method. A trading rule that uses the forecasts from the suggested procedure is observed to outperform the buy-and-hold strategy.


A Methodology for Resolution Mapping for Cross-Resolution Simulation using Event-B
Kara, Ahmet; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Alpdemir, M. Nedim (2015-11-01)
This paper proposes a software engineering solution for implementing simulations via the composition of models at different resolution levels with the help of formal methods. Our solution provides a systematic methodology that offers a well-defined sequence of stages to obtain executable converters for entity resolution mapping, given the types of entity attributes that are exchanged at model interfaces and the mapping specifications. Our methodology uses Event-B as the formal specification language and Dis...
Comparison of Randomized Solutions for Constrained Vehicle Routing Problem
Demirci, Ibrahim Ethem; Ozdemir, Saziye Ece; Yayla, Oğuz (2020-06-01)
© 2020 IEEE.In this short paper, we study capacity constrained vehicle routing problem (CVRP) and its solution by randomized Monte Carlo methods. For solving CVRP we use some pseudorandom number generators commonly used in practice. We use linear, multiple-recursive, inversive and explicit inversive congruential generators and obtain random numbers from each to provide a route for CVRP. Then we compare the performance of pseudorandom number generators with respect to the total time the random route takes. W...
Application of Continuum Damage Mechanics in discontinuous crack formation: Forward extrusion chevron
Soyarslan, Celal; TEKKAYA, AHMET ERMAN; Akyüz, Uğurhan (2008-06-01)
Materializing Continuum Damage Mechanics (CDM), numerical modeling of discrete internal cracks, namely central bursts, in direct forward extrusion process is presented. Accordingly, in a thermodynamically consistent setting, a local Lemaitre variant damage model with quasi-unilateral evolution is coupled with hyperelastic-plasticity. The formulations are constructed in the principal axes where simultaneous local integration schemes are efficiently developed. To this end, the framework is implemented as ABAQ...
A New Beamformer Design Method for Multi-Group Multicasting by Enforcing Constructive Interference
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2018-08-07)
In this paper, we propose a new multi-group multi-cast beamforming design method for phase shift keying (PSK) modulated signals. Quality of service (QoS)-aware optimization is considered where the aim is to minimize transmission power of multiple-antenna base station under the QoS constraints of single-antenna users. In this paper, we show that symbol-level beamforming scheme proposed in the literature is not an effective design method for multi-group multicasting and modify it using rotated constellation a...
Novel SIE formulations for accurate and stable analysis of near-zero-index materials
KARAOSMANOGLU, BARISCAN; OZMU, UTKU; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-07-01)
© 2019 IEEE.We present surface-integral-equation formulations for accurate and stable solutions of electromagnetic problems involving near-zero-index materials with arbitrarily small permittivity and/or permeability values. The formulations are developed for conventional discretizations, while they can be implemented by using interaction routines of existing solvers. Initial results on canonical objects clearly demonstrate the superiority of the developed formulations in comparison to the conventional ones.
