Questioning endurance through the interruptions on urban memory: Konak SSK Blocks
Karakaş, Bilge; Yılmaz, Ebru (2021-09-30)
Konak Square has been evolved for centuries and reached today’s spatial configuration, especially with surrounding administrative, institutional, cultural, and commercial structures obtained by architectural competitions between the 1950s and 1970s. SSK Blocks is one of these competition sites adjacent to Konak Square, where historical Yellow Barracks were located. Yellow Barracks were built in the 19th century to reinforce the administrative characteristics of Konak Square, representing the “westerniz...
Chaotic digital modulation and demodulation
Öztürk, Uygar; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis considers a communication system with chaotic modulation. Noise-like signals are generated by chaotic systems with different parameters to modulate binary digital signals. Demodulation is performed by both the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) and Optimum Decoding Based Smoothing Algorithm (ODSA). Simulations are performed using both of these algorithms for different parameters affecting the performance of the communication system. Simulation results of these algorithms are compared.
Advanced marginality and criminalization: the case of Altindag
MERCAN, BORAN ALİ; Şen, Mustafa (Informa UK Limited, 2020-07-01)
Many studies have identified the rise of the drug trade in the inner-city slums of Ankara's Altindag district in the wake of post-urban transformation projects (UTPs). However, none of them has thus far discussed the surge of such organized criminal activity in relation to the wider urban policy regime of Turkey. This paper offers the concept of advanced marginality to understand the complex relations between neoliberal urban governmentality and its repercussions in local areas, which results in UTPs, the d...

Strict counterpoint: a case study in musical composition by computers
Ebcioğlu, Kemal; Gökeri, Müren; Department of Computer Engineering (1979)
This thesis is concerned with the particular problem of composing 5th species two voice strict counterpoint exercises for a given Cantus firmus. The melody (Contrapunctus) has been represented in the computer as a Lisp List. A class of Lisp functions, called 'normal characteristic functions' has been defined and several lemmata and theorems related to the mathematical properties of these functions have been proved. Normal characteristic functions have then been utilized for recognizing and generating certai...
