    • Environmental education preparation in pre-service teacher programs in Turkey 

      Güntürkün, Efe (Bilkent University, 2016-05)
      The purpose of this study is to gain insights into how environmental education is implemented into pre-service teacher preparation in Turkey. The format of the courses, their duration, the strategies that are being used, ...
    • Essays on implementability and monotonicity 

      Pasin, Pelin (Bilkent University, 2009)
      In this thesis we study the implementation problem with regard to the relation between monotonicity and implementability. Recent work in the field has shown that the implementability of a social choice rule strongly ...
    • Explorations on monotonicity in social choice theory 

      Doğan, Battal (Bilkent University, 2007)
      Due to Maskin (1977), Maskin-monotonicity is known to be a necessary condition for Nash-implementability. Once one classifies social choice rules as the ones which are Maskin-monotonic and those which are not, a ...
    • Generalized second price auction is optimal for discrete types 

      Bayrak, H. I.; Pınar, M. Ç. (Elsevier, 2016)
      We prove that a variant of the second price auction for the sale of a single good through a Bayesian incentive compatible mechanism that maximizes expected revenue of the seller is optimal when the type space is discrete. ...
    • Implementation in dominant strategy equilibrium 

      Kıbrıs, Özgür (Bilkent University, 1995)
      A social choice rule is any proposed solution to the problem of collective decision making and it embeds the normative features that can be attached to the mentioned problem. Implementation of social choice rules in ...
    • Implementation via code of rights 

      Yıldız, Kemal (Bilkent University, 2008)
      Implementation of a social choice rule can be thought of as a design of power (re)distribution in the society whose ”equilibrium outcomes” coincide with the alternatives chosen by the social choice rule at any preference ...
    • Implementation via rights structures 

      Koray, S.; Yildiz, K. (Academic Press, 2018)
      Implementation of socially desirable alternatives can be thought of as a way to design power distribution in a society such that the equilibrium outcomes coincide with the alternatives chosen at each preference profile. ...
    • Implementing equal division with an ultimatum threat 

      Cetemen, E. D.; Karagözoğlu, E. (Springer, 2014)
      We modify the payment rule of the standard divide the dollar (DD) game by introducing a second stage and thereby resolve the multiplicity problem and implement equal division of the dollar in equilibrium. In the standard ...
    • Multistage optical interconnection architectures with the least possible growth of system size 

      Ozaktas, H. M.; Mendlovic, D. (Optical Society of America, 1993)
      Multistage interconnection architectures can provide an arbitrary pattern of one-to-one connections between N input and N output channels. We show that bitonic multistage architectures, such as the Banyan architecture, ...
    • Optimal allocation with costly inspection and discrete types under ambiguity 

      Bayrak, H. I.; Güler, K.; Pınar, M. Ç. (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
      We consider the following problem: a principal has a good to allocate among a collection of agents who attach a private value to receiving the good. The principal, instead of using monetary transfers (i.e. charging the ...
    • Party implementation 

      Apakan, Hasan Tahsin (Bilkent University, 2009)
      In this study party implementation concept is introduced. Party implementation is an extension of classical implementation allowing different parties to have group-specific choice rules. Members of a party are assumed ...
    • Portfolio implementation at Turkish university preparatory schools, and teachers' perceptions of portfolios and problems experienced with portfolio use 

      Kılıç, Emine (Bilkent University, 2009)
      This study seeks to investigate portfolio implementation at Turkish university preparatory schools and the reported aims of portfolio use as targeted by these schools. The study further examines teachers‟ perceptions of ...
    • Prototype implementation of dynavote e-voting protocol 

      Cetinkaya O.; Koc, M.L. (2009)
      Voting is regarded as one of the most effective methods for individuals to express their opinions on a given topic. Electronic voting (eVoting) refers to the use of computers or computerised voting equipments to cast ballots ...
    • Subgame perfect implementation of men-optimal matchings 

      Teoman, Ece (Bilkent University, 2017-07)
      In this study, we explore monotonicities and implementability of di erent matching rules. We nd a self-monotonicity of the stable rule and an h-monotonicity for the men-optimal rule, which does not satisfy Maskin-monotonicity. ...
    • Synthesis of general linear systems with repeated filtering in consecutive fractional Fourier domains 

      Erden, M. F.; Ozaktas, H. M. (Optical Society of America, 1998)
      The optical and digital implementations of general linear systems are costly. Through several examples we show that either exact realizations or useful approximations of these systems may be implemented in the form of ...
    • Two essays in social choice theory 

      Kaya, Ayça (Bilkent University, 2000)
      Solution concepts which implement only monotonic social choice rules are characterized in terms of a new notion of monotonicity pertaining to solution concepts. For any given class G of mechanisms, it turns out that a ...
