The Wronski map for flag varieties

Güngör, Emre
In this thesis, we studied flag varieties, the Grassmann variety G(d; n) and their behavior under the Wronski map. We begin by introducing algebraic, topological and geometric tools that are required to define flag varieties as projective varieties. Schubert calculus is introduced in order to understand the cohomology of the Grassmannian and flag varieties. We described Young tableau which is a helpful tool that makes some combinatorial computations, in particular of Littlewood-Richardson coefficients, easier and studied it extensively. Finally, we studied the Wronski map which sends a set of polynomials to their Wronski determinant which is given by the polynomials and their derivatives.


Transfer Learning Using Twitter Data for Improving Sentiment Classification of Turkish Political News
Kaya, Mesut; Fidan, Guven; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (2013-10-29)
In this paper, we aim to determine the overall sentiment classification of Turkish political columns. That is, our goal is to determine whether the whole document has positive or negative opinion regardless of its subject. In order to enhance the performance of the classification, transfer learning is applied from unlabeled Twitter data to labeled political columns. A variation of self-taught learning has been proposed, and implemented for the classification. Different machine learning techniques, including...
Integrating Epistemological Perspectives on Chemistry in Chemical Education: The Cases of Concept Duality, Chemical Language, and Structural Explanations
Kaya, Ebru; Erduran, Sibel (2013-07-01)
In this paper, we trace the work of some philosophers of chemistry to draw some implications for the improvement of chemical education. We examine some key features of chemical knowledge, and how these features are relevant for school chemistry teaching and learning. In particular, we examine Laszlo's (Foundations of Chemistry 1:225-238, 1999) notion of concept duality, Jacob's (HYLE-International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry 7:31-50, 2001) descriptions of chemical language and Goodwin's (Foundations...
The nature of the interplay among components of pedagogical content knowledge in reaction rate and chemical equilibrium topics of novice and experienced chemistry teachers
Akın Çelebi, Fatma; Kondakçı, Esen (2018-01-01)
We examined the interactions among pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) components of novice and experienced chemistry teachers in teaching reaction rate and chemical equilibrium topics in this qualitative multiple-case design study. For this aim, three chemistry teachers who had different levels of teaching experience in chemistry teaching were selected through a process of purposeful sampling. Multiple types of data were gathered through more than two months. In order to collect and triangulate data, a car...
The Formation and Denouement of "Perso-Islamic" in Oriental History and the Case of Seljuk Art and Architectural History
Peker, Ali Uzay (2022-11-01)
This paper questions the validity of the term “Perso-Islamic,” a label invented in scholarship on the history of the Middle East to coin the presumed cultural union between former ancient Persia and later Islamic culture. From the nineteenth century on, particularly the European historians with Indo-European philological background introduced an idiosyncratic discourse to studies on Islamic civilization. The phrase Perso-Islamic has been almost extemporaneously employed by them in places where institutions,...
Circular plates on elastic foundations modelled with annular plates
Utku, M; Citipitioglu, E; Inceleme, I (1998-08-21)
In this paper, a new formulation is presented for the analysis of circular plates supported on elastic foundations. The formulation is based on the flexibility and stiffness methods of structural analysis. Classical thin plate theory for small deformations is applied to obtain the flexibility and stiffness coefficients. The circular plate is represented as a series of simply supported annular plates resting on support springs along their common edges. The computer implementation of the method is given, and ...
