      Gürses, M.; Hervik, S.; Şişman, T. Ç.; Tekin, B. (American Physical Society, 2013)
      We show that the recently found anti-de Sitter (AdS)-plane and AdS-spherical wave solutions of quadratic curvature gravity also solve the most general higher derivative theory in D dimensions. More generally, we show that ...

      An extensive first-principles study of fully exohydrogenated zigzag (n,0) and armchair (n,n) single-wall carbon nanotubes (CnHn), polyhedral molecules including cubane, dodecahedrane, and C60H60 points to crucial differences ...
    • First-principles investigation of structural and electronic properties of solid cubane and its doped derivatives

      This paper presents our study on the atomic, electronic, magnetic structures, and phonon modes of the low-temperature orthorhombic phase of undoped BaFe2As2 crystal. The electronic structure is characterized by a sharp ...
    • Inflation and inflation uncertainty: a dynamic framework 

      Berument, M. H.; Yalcin, Y.; Yildirim J. (Elsevier BV, 2012)
      This paper aims to investigate the direct relationship between inflation and inflation uncertainty by employing a dynamic method for the monthly country-region-place United States data for the time period 1976-2007. While ...
    • A measurable force driven by an excitonic condensate 

      Hakioǧlu, T.; Özgün, E.; Günay, M. (American Institute of Physics Inc., 2014)
      Free energy signatures related to the measurement of an emergent force (≈10-9N) due to the exciton condensate (EC) in Double Quantum Wells are predicted and experiments are proposed to measure the effects. The EC-force is ...
