Finding hidden hierarchy in social networks
(Bilkent University, 201606)Stratification among humans is a well studied concept that significantly impacts how social connections are shaped. Given that online social networks capture social connections among people, similar structure exist in ... 
Finding it now: networked classifiers in realtime stream mining systems
(Springer, Cham, 2019)The aim of this chapter is to describe and optimize the specifications of signal processing systems, aimed at extracting in real time valuable information out of largescale decentralized datasets. A first section will ... 
Finding people frequently appearing in news
(Springer, 200607)We propose a graph based method to improve the performance of person queries in large news video collections. The method benefits from the multimodal structure of videos and integrates text and face information. Using the ... 
Finding the best portable congruential random number generators
(Elsevier, 201308)Linear congruential random number generators must have large moduli to attain maximum periods, but this creates integer overflow during calculations. Several methods have been suggested to remedy this problem while obtaining ... 
Finding the middle way: the formation of democracy and the conflict of authority and autonomy
(Bilkent University, 201806)This thesis aims to find a place where in the conflict of autonomy and authority there is a place for a democratic state to exist. The possibility of a democratic state that could have legitimate authority over its ... 
Fine arts perspective in user interface design
(ACM, 2009)In this poster, we first aim to explain an interdisciplinary approach and question an idea and attempt. Second, we aim to underline challenges and enablers of such an attempt. This idea can be briefly summarized as "inclusion ... 
Fine feathers make paper tigers: How the outofdate superiority of "the other" gets propped up in advertisements
(2006)Functional myths often underlie widely subscribed epithets. In particular, one of the social functions of myths concerning the superiority of "the other" is to provide a basis for definitions of prestige. In examples drawn ... 
Fine structure of mass and charge distribution in low energy fission
(Akademiai Kiado Rt., 1992)Studies of finer details in mass and charge distribution fission leads to a better understanding of the fission process. Experimental determination of independent and cumulative yields using radiochemical techniques as ... 
Finegrained object recognition and zeroshot learning in multispectral imagery
(IEEE, 2018)We present a method for finegrained object recognition problem, that aims to recognize the type of an object among a large number of subcategories, and zeroshot learning scenario on multispectral images. In order to ... 
Finegrained object recognition and zeroshot learning in remote sensing imagery
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 201802)Finegrained object recognition that aims to identify the type of an object among a large number of subcategories is an emerging application with the increasing resolution that exposes new details in image data. Traditional ... 
Finegrained object recognition in remote sensing imagery
(Bilkent University, 201806)Finegrained object recognition aims to determine the type of an object in domains with a large number of subcategories. The steadily increase in spatial and spectral resolution entailing new details in remote sensing ... 
Finetuning the dispersion and the mobility of BaO domains on NO x storage materials via TiO2 anchoring sites
(American Chemical Society, 2010)In an attempt to control the surface dispersion and the mobility of BaO domains on NOx storage materials, TiO2/TiOx anchoring sites were introduced on/inside the conventional γAl 2O3 support matrix. BaO/TiO2/Al 2O3 ternary ... 
Finite computation of the ℓ 1estimator from Huber's Mestimator in linear regression
(2004)We review and extend previous work on the approximation of the linear ℓ 1 estimator by the Huber Mestimator based on the algorithms proposed by Clark and Osborne, and Madsen and Nielsen. Although the MadsenNielsen algorithm ... 
A finite concave minimization algorithm using branch and bound and neighbor generation
(Springer, 1994)In this article we present a new finite algorithm for globally minimizing a concave function over a compact polyhedron. The algorithm combines a branch and bound search with a new process called neighbor generation. It is ... 
A finite continuation algorithm for bound constrained quadratic programming
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Publications, 1998)The dual of the strictly convex quadratic programming problem with unit bounds is posed as a linear ℓ1 minimization problem with quadratic terms. A smooth approximation to the linear ℓ1 function is used to obtain a parametric ... 
A finite dominating set of cardinality O(k) and a witness set of cardinality O(n) for 1.5D terrain guarding problem
(Springer New York LLC, 2017)1.5 dimensional (1.5D) terrain is characterized by a piecewise linear curve. Locating minimum number of guards on the terrain (T) to cover/guard the whole terrain is known as 1.5D terrain guarding problem. Approximation ... 
Finite element analysis of the deformation behaviour of pure aluminium in repetitive corrugationstraightening and constrained groove pressing
(Inderscience Enterprises, 2018)Repetitive corrugationstraightening (RCS) and constrained groove pressing (CGP) are two promising severe plastic deformation techniques for sheet metallic materials. There are differences in amount of imposed plastic ... 
Finite element method based simulation, desing, and resonant mode analysis of radio frequency birdcage coils used in magnetic resonance imaging
(Bilkent University, 2012)Radio Frequency (RF) birdcage coils are widely used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) since they can generate very homogeneous RF magnetic field inside the coil and have high signaltonoise ratio (SNR). In practice, ... 
Finite element method based simulations of low frequency magnetic field in seawater
(Bilkent University, 2013)Propagation properties of the electromagnetic waves in seawater are different than in air (vacuum) due to electrical conductivity (σ) and high relative permittivity (εr) of the seawater. Numerically it is hard to solve ... 
Finite element modeling of microparticle separation using ultrasonic standing waves
(ASME, 2014)Acoustophoresis which means separation of particles and cells using acoustic waves is becoming an intensive research subject. The method is based on inducing an ultrasonic compression standing wave inside a microchannel. ...
