'[Achim] Szepanski contacted Deleuze himself, sending material by Oval and other Mille artists, and asking if he’d write an essay for Achim’s planned anthology of techno theory, Maschinelle Strategeme. The great man wrote back saying he couldn’t do it, but gave his blessing to the label, and said that he particularly dug Oval. “He even wrote about specific tracks!” exclaims Achim.' Now, why did Deleuze like this album so much? Sadly, his written comments were lost in a fire, leaving it as a total mystery what it is about glitch music that moved him so profoundly. Nonetheless, while we may never find documentation providing a certain answer, we might still take this situation as an opportunity to advance our understanding of Deleuze’s other musically-related philosophical notions. For instance, Deleuze’s characterization of rhythm is a promising companion concept to glitch, given the particular way Deleuze understands rhythm as involving irregularities and unpredictabilities. So we ask: might there be ways of understanding glitch as a continuation and elaboration on his notion of rhythm? Or in the very least, might a study of glitch music illuminate certain important conceptual features of Deleuze’s notion of rhythm?

Heterologous expression, characterization, and optimization of production of alpha-galactosidase from aspergillus fumigatus in aspergillus sojae
Gürkök, Sümeyra; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Bölükbaşı, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2012)
α-Galactosidase is an exo-glycosidase that hydrolyses non-reducing, α-1,6-linked α-galactose units from oligosaccharides, galactomannans, and galactolipids. α-Galactosidase activity has biotechnological, industrial, and medical importance. α-Galactosidase from A. fumigatus IMI 385708, in particular, can catalyse unique hydrolysis and transgalactosylation reactions on polymeric substrates. In this study, α-galactosidase of the human pathogen A. fumigatus IMI 385708 was first produced in a GRAS organism, Aspe...
Thermodynamics of a two-dimensional interacting Bose gas trapped in a quartic potential
Karabulut, Elife O.; Koyuncu, Mustafa; ATAV, ÜLFET; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2011-01-17)
We have studied the Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of an interacting Bose gas confined in a two-dimensional (2D) quartic potential by using a mean-field, semiclassical two-fluid model. A thermodynamic analysis including the chemical potential, condensate fraction, total energy, and specific heat has been carried out by considering different values of the interaction strength. Finally, we have found that the behaviour of the condensate fraction and specific heat of quartically trapped bosons differs from t...
Stopover ecology of some passerines at Ankara (CentralTurkey)

Ke apl Can Ö., Can Bilgin C. 2005. Stopover ecology of some passerines at Ankara (Central Turkey). Ring 27, 2: 127-136. In autumn 2002 we studied little known passerine migration at a woodland patch within the Middle East Technical University (METU) campus in Ankara (Turkey). A total of 954 individuals of 35 passerine species were mist-netted, ringed, measured, weighed and fat-scored (after Busse 2000). Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla) and Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus) were the two most common speci...
Singularity analysis of spherical Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation
Karasu, Emine Ayşe (Physical Society of Japan, 2005-02-01)
The (2 + 1)-dimensional spherical Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (SKP) equation of J.-K. Xue [Phys. Lett. A 314 (2003) 479] fails the Painleve test for integrability at the highest resonance, where a nontrivial compatibility condition for recursion relations appears. This compatibility condition, however, is sufficiently weak and thus allows the SKP equation to possess an integrable (1 + 1)-dimensional reduction, which is found by the method of truncated singular expansion.
