    • Message passing in an object-oriented database management system 

      Özelçi, Sibel M (Bilkent University, 1988)
      In this thesis, a focused survey on object-oriented database management systems and on object-orientation in general was carried out and a single- user object-oriented database management system prototype was designed and ...
    • An Object memory for an object-oriented database management system 

      Kesim, F Nihan (Bilkent University, 1988)
      Object-oriented paradigm is an approach that can be applied in various areas of computing. In this approach, each entity is represented by an object which captures the state and the behaviour of the entity. In this thesis, ...
    • Congestion control in interconnected computer networks 

      Ulusoy, Özgür (Bilkent University, 1988)
      A computer network has a collection of resources shared by multiple users. The capacity of the resources is limited, and if the user demands exceed the capacity, the network becomes ’congested’. The congestion causes a ...
    • Stabilization of multivariable systems with constrained control structure 

      Ünyelioğlu, Konur Alp (Bilkent University, 1988)
      The following problem is considered: Given a multivariable system with m inputs and r outputs and an m x r matrix whose nonnegative (i,j)’th element represents the cost of setting up a feedback link from the j ’th output ...
    • A heuristic procedure for a single-item dynamic lot sizing problem 

      Benli O.S.; Sabuncuoglu I.; Tufekci, S. (1988)
      An O(T) heuristic proceudre for a single-item dynamic lot sizing problem is introduced in this paper. The algorithm tries to establish the regeneration points of the problem whether either the production or the beginning ...
    • Effect of tip profile on atomic-force microscope images: A model study 

      Abraham F.F.; Batra I.P.; Ciraci, S. (1988)
      Adopting the empirical silicon interatomic potential of Stillinger and Weber, we investigate the effect of the tip profile on the atomic-force microscope images for a prototype system, Si(001)-(2×1), and conclude that the ...
    • Design and analysis of just-in-time production systems 

      Oğuz, Ceyda (Bilkent University, 1988)
      Just-in-Time (JIT) production systems have initially appeared in the Japanese manufacturing environment due to the scarcity of their critical resources. The main aim in JIT production systems is to eliminate waste. ...
    • Atomic theory of the scanning tunneling microscope 

      Tekman, Ahmet Erkan (Bilkent University, 1988)
      The Scanning Tunneling Microscope is proven to be one of the most powerful tools for surface structure determination. Present theories are able to explain the operation of the microscope when the tip is far from the ...
    • Electronic structure of Si/Ge semiconductor superlattices 

      Gülseren, Oğuz (Bilkent University, 1988)
      A brief review about the two dimensional electron systems and especially band offsets is given. The electronic properties of the Si„/Ge„(001) strained superlattices as a function of the superlattice periodicity and the ...
    • Organizational structure and change: A Case study of the warehouse and stock control system in Tepe Co 

      Onarcan, Mehtap Emine (Bilkent University, 1988)
      A sophisticated information processing system can cause a change in the organizational structure. In this work, the Warehouse and Stock Control System in TEPE CO. is chosen as a case study to examine a planned organizational ...
    • A sequential dual simplex algorithm for the linear assignment problem 

      Akgül, M. (1988)
      We present a sequential dual-simplex algorithm for the linear problem which has the same complexity as the algorithms of Balinski [3,4] and Goldfarb [8]: O(n2) pivots, O(n2 log n + nm) time. Our algorithm works with the ...
    • Continuous processing of images through user sketched functional blocks 

      Kaya Aydin, Ozguc Bulent (1988)
      Our aim is to implement an image processing system with previously defined algorithms through the use of functional blocks connected together to form a diagram that we call a schematic. A functional block means the ...
    • Critical relaxation of the two-dimensional three-state Potts model with conserved dynamics 

      Aydin, M.; Yalabik, M.C. (1988)
      The dynamical critical exponent z is obtained using the finite-size scaling method for the two-dimensional three-state Potts model with conserved dynamics. It is observed that there is a change in the dynamical behaviour ...
    • Sequential Decoding for Multiple Access Channels 

      Arikan, E. (1988)
      The use of sequential decoding in multiple access channels is considered. The Fano metric, which achieves all achievable rates in the one-user case, fails to do so in the multiuser case. A new metric is introduced and an ...
    • Surface metallization of silicon by potassium adsorption on Si(001)-(2×1)
