    • Evolution of the hofstadter butterfly in a tunable optical lattice 

      Yılmaz, Fırat (Bilkent University, 2015-08)
      There are a limited number of exact solutions for quantum mechanical systems. It is critical to obtain solutions for complex systems. One of these unsolved equations was the famous Harpers equation, which was proposed ...
    • First international workshop on Multi Product Line Engineering (MultiPLE 2013) 

      Moonen, L.; Acharya, M.; Behjati, R.; Tekinerdoğan, Bedir; Rabiser, R.; Kang, K. C. (ACM, 2013-08)
      In an industrial context, software systems are rarely developed by a single organization. For software product lines, this means that various organizations collaborate to provide and integrate the assets used in a product ...
    • Friends and happiness: An evolutionary perspective on friendship 

      Lewis, David M. G.; Al-Shawaf, L.; Russell, E. M.; Buss, D. M. (Springer Netherlands, 2015)
      An evolutionary perspective yields fresh insights into the nature of human friendships and the emotions associated with these relationships. This approach sheds light on how specific types of friendship would have benefitted ...
    • Genome sequencing highlights the dynamic early history of dogs 

      Freedman, A. H.; Gronau I.; Schweizer, R. M.; Ortega-Del Vecchyo, D.; Han, E.; Silva, P. M.; Galaverni, M.; Fan, Z.; Marx P.; Lorente-Galdos, B.; Beale, H.; Ramirez, O.; Hormozdiari, F.; Alkan C.; Vilà, C.; Squire K.; Geffen, E.; Kusak, J.; Boyko, A. R.; Parker, H. G.; Lee C.; Tadigotla, V.; Siepel, A.; Bustamante, C. D.; Harkins, T. T.; Nelson, S. F.; Ostrander, E. A.; Marques Bonet, T.; Wayne, R. K.; Novembre, J. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      To identify genetic changes underlying dog domestication and reconstruct their early evolutionary history, we generated high-quality genome sequences from three gray wolves, one from each of the three putative centers of ...
    • Great ape genetic diversity and population history 

      Prado-Martinez, J.; Eichler, E. E.; Marques-Bonet, T.; Sudmant, P. H.; Kidd, J. M.; Li, H.; Kelley, J. L.; Lorente-Galdos, B.; Veeramah, K. R.; Woerner, A. E.; O’Connor, T. D.; Santpere, G.; Cagan, A.; Theunert, C.; Casals, F.; Laayouni, H.; Munch, K.; Hobolth, A.; Halager, A. E.; Malig, M.; Hernandez-Rodriguez, J.; Hernando-Herraez, I.; Prüfer, K.; Pybus, M.; Johnstone, L.; Lachmann, M.; Alkan C.; Twig, D.; Petit, N.; Baker, C.; Hormozdiari, F.; Fernandez-Callejo, M.; Dabad, M.; Wilson, M. L.; Stevison, L.; Camprubí, C.; Carvalho, T.; RuizHerrera, A.; Vives, L.; Mele, M.; Abello, T.; Kondova, I.; Bontrop, R. E.; Pusey, A.; Lankester, F.; Kiyang, J. A.; Bergl, R. A.; Lonsdorf, E.; Myers, S.; Ventura, M.; Gagneux, P.; Comas, D.; Siegismund, H.; Blanc, J.; Agueda-Calpena, L.; Gut, M.; Fulton, L.; Tishkoff, S. A.; Mullikin, J. C.; Wilson, R. K.; Gut, I. G.; Gonder, M K.; Ryder, O. A.; Hahn, B. H.; Navarro, A.; Akey, J. M.; Bertranpetit, J.; Reich, D.; Mailund, T.; Schierup, M. H.; Hvilsom, C.; Andrés, A. M.; Wall, J. D.; Bustamante, C. D.; Hammer, M. F. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
      Most great ape genetic variation remains uncharacterized(1,2); however, its study is critical for understanding population history(3-6), recombination(7), selection(8) and susceptibility to disease(9,10). Here we sequence ...
    • Inferring phylogenetical tree by using hierarchical self organizing maps 

      Bahşi, Hayretdin (Bilkent University, 2002)
      In biology, inferring phylogenetical tree is an attempt to describe the evolutionary history of today’s species with the aim of finding their common ancestors. Specifically in molecular biology, it is used in understanding ...
    • Modeling history sensitivity and orthogonally restricting aspects 

      Er, Nagehan Pala; Tekin, Özgür Aydın; Köksal, Ömer (CEUR-WS, 2018)
      In this paper, we describe evolution problems of typical software, concentrating on history sensitivity. We start with a basic Object-Oriented design for a simple game. Then, history sensitivity problem is introduced ...
    • Peirce, immediate perception, and the "New" unconscious: neuroscience and empirical psychology in support of a "Well-Known Doctrine" 

      Sorrell, K. (Penn State University Press, 2015)
      This article defends Charles Peirce's "doctrine of immediate perception." This realistic view holds that conscious agents, due to the work of unconscious mind, directly perceive the world and often know objects, events, ...
    • Secularization 

      Güner, S. Ş. (Routledge, 2016-09-22)
      This article proposes three evolutionary games to study secularization. The games assume that there is a severe competition for a resource defined as the material wealth a society produces. Successful strategies emerge out ...
    • Semi-analytic theory self-similar optical propagation and mode-locking using a shape-adaptive model pulse 

      Jirauschek, C.; Ilday, F. O. (American Physical Society, 2014-01-21)
      A semianalytic theory for the pulse dynamics in similariton amplifiers and lasers is presented, based on a model pulse with adaptive shape. By changing a single parameter, this test function can be continuously tweaked ...
