    • Approximate MLFMA as an efficient preconditioner 

      Malas, Tahir; Ergül, Özgür; Gürel, Levent (IEEE, 2007)
      In this work, we propose a preconditioner that approximates the dense system operator. For this purpose, we develop an approximate multilevel fast multipole algorithm (AMLFMA), which performs a much faster matrix-vector ...
    • Architectural requirements for energy efficient execution of graph analytics applications 

      Özdal, Muhammet Mustafa; Yeşil, Şerif; Kim, T.; Ayupov, A.; Burns, S.; Öztürk, Özcan (IEEE, 2015-11)
      Intelligent data analysis has become more important in the last decade especially because of the significant increase in the size and availability of data. In this paper, we focus on the common execution models and ...
    • Convergence to international financial reporting standards: the case of Turkey 

      Simga‐Mugan, C.; Hosal-Akman, N. (Inderscience Publishers, 2005)
      In this paper, we discuss the progress in the accounting standards in Turkey and provide some insight into the current accounting system as well as the recent regulatory developments following the convergence attempts ...
    • Cooperative localization in hybrid infrared/visible light networks: theoretical limits and distributed algorithms 

      Keskin, F.; Erdem, O.; Gezici, S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)
      Light emitting diode (LED) based visible light positioning (VLP) networks can provide accurate location information in environments where the global positioning system (GPS) suffers from severe signal degradation and/or ...
    • The effect of IFRS adoption on financial disclosure: does culture still play a role? 

      Akman, N. H. (Centre for Promoting Ideas, 2011)
      This study investigates whether the differences in financial disclosure due to culture have diminished after the use of IFRS. Using 498 firm-year observations for the period of 2004 to 2006 from six countries, the results ...
    • Energy efficient architecture for graph analytics accelerators 

      Özdal, Muhammet Mustafa; Yeşil, Şerif; Kim, T.; Ayupov, A.; Greth, J.; Burns, S.; Öztürk, Özcan (IEEE, 2016-06)
      Specialized hardware accelerators can significantly improve the performance and power efficiency of compute systems. In this paper, we focus on hardware accelerators for graph analytics applications and propose a configurable ...
    • European integration, productivity growth and real convergence: evidence from the new member states 

      Kutan, A. M.; Yigit, T. M. (Elsevier BV, 2009)
      We estimate the determinants of labor productivity growth in 8 new European Union (EU) member states that joined the Union in 2004. Our focus is on the impact of globalization and EU integration efforts on labor productivity ...
    • Fiscal convergence in the European Union 

      Kocenda, E.; Kutan, A. M.; Yigit, T. M. (Elsevier BV, 2008)
      We empirically examine the fiscal convergence of the recent ten European Union (EU) members using the Maastricht fiscal convergence criteria. We test for absolute beta and sigma convergence of the new members in comparison ...
    • Growing tendency to harmonisation with IFRS: some evidences from Turkey 

      Kocakülâh, M. C.; Şimga-Muğan, C.; Hoşal-Akman, Nazli; Aldogan, M. (Inderscience Publishers, 2009)
      Motivated by the recent developments in accounting regulations, we explore the tendency of countries to converge to IFRS for both public and private companies and present some evidence on the issue from an emerging market. ...
    • Income inequality and economic convergence in Turkey: a spatial effect analysis 

      Yildirim, J.; Öcal, N.; Özyildirim, S. (Sage Publications, 2009)
      Even though the convergence of regional per capita income has been a highly debated issue internationally, empirical evidence regarding Turkey is limited as well as contradictory. This article is an attempt to investigate ...
    • Jamming bandits-a novel learning method for optimal jamming 

      Amuru, S.; Tekin, C.; Van Der Schaar, M.; Buehrer, R.M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2016)
      Can an intelligent jammer learn and adapt to unknown environments in an electronic warfare-type scenario? In this paper, we answer this question in the positive, by developing a cognitive jammer that adaptively and optimally ...
    • Media convergence in animation : an analysis of aesthetic uniformity 

      Gündeş, Feridun (Bilkent University, 2017-02)
      This thesis analyzes the uniformity in animation aesthetics within the framework of convergence theory. The sources of aesthetic diversity in animation art are demonstrated along with the process though which these became ...
    • A new method for the steady-state analysis of periodically excited nonlinear circuits 

      Celik, M.; Atalar, Abdullah; Tan, M. A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1996-12)
      We propose a new method for the steady state analysis of periodically excited nonlinear microwave circuits. It is a modified and more efficient form of Newton-Raphson iteration based harmonic balance (HB) technique. It ...
    • Winds of change in accounting practices in an emerging market: Some observations and thoughts 

      Hosal-Akman, Nazlı; Simga-Mugan, C.; Arikboga, D. (Inderscience Publishers, 2009)
      In Turkey, publicly traded companies are required to comply with a new set of standards that are essentially similar to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) since 2005. In this study, we use the results ...
