An analytical solution to the stance dynamics of passive springloaded inverted pendulum with damping
(World Scientific, 200909)The SpringLoaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) model has been established both as a very accurate descriptive tool as well as a good basis for the design and control of running robots. In particular, approximate analytic ... 
Better stability with measurement errors
(Springer New York LLC, 201606)Often it is desirable to stabilize a system around an optimal state. This can be effectively accomplished using feedback control, where the system deviation from the desired state is measured in order to determine the ... 
Cesium–lead based inorganic perovskite quantumdots as interfacial layer for highly stable perovskite solar cells with exceeding 21% efficiency
(Elsevier, 2019)Despite the excellent photovoltaic performances of perovskite solar cells (PSCs), the instability of PSCs under severe environment (e.g. humidity, lightinduced, etc.) limits further commercialization of such devices. Therefore, ... 
A characterization of the optimal set of linear programs based on the augmented lagrangian
(Taylor & Francis, 1999)It is proved that in a certain neighborhood of the optimal set of multipliers, the set of minimizers of the augmented lagrangian nmction generates a new characterization of the optimal solution set of the linear program. 
The coauthors' problem revisited : from networks to covers
(Bilkent University, 2010)In this thesis, we reexamine the Coauthors’ Problem, introduced by Jackson and Wolinsky, 1996. We propose the Extended Coauthor Model using the cover notion, allowing for multilateral links among authors. We study ... 
Coincidence of Myerson allocation rule with Shapley value
(Bilkent University, 2003)This thesis studies the coincidence of the Myerson allocation rule in the context of networks with the Shapley value in the context of transferable utility games. We start with a value function defined on networks and ... 
Conewise linear systems: a characterization of transitive cones in 3Dspace
(The European Control Association (EUCA), 201906)A spatial (3D) piecewise linear system with multiple modes having conewise state spaces is considered. A single mode in this system is called transitive from one (respectively, two) of its borders if every trajectory that ... 
Constructing convex directions for stable polynomials
(IEEE, 2000)The constructions of convex directions based on phasederivative interpretations were obtained for Hurwitzstable polynomials. The phasederivative conditions were based on the sensitivity of rootlocus associated with the ... 
Control and stabilization of a rotating flexible structure
(Elsevier, 1994)We consider a flexible beam clamped to a rigid base at one end and free at the other end. We assume that the rigid base rotates with a constant angular velocity and that the motion of the flexible beam takes place on a ... 
Controlled enzymatic stability and release characteristics of supramolecular chiral peptide amphiphile nanofiber gels
(Elsevier B.V., 2017)Supramolecular bioarchitectures formed by assembly of achiral or chiral building blocks play important roles in various biochemical processes. Stereochemistry of amino acids is important for structural organization of ... 
Decentralized stabilization of interconnected systems: Structural conditions
(1992)A unified framework is provided for the design of highgain decentralized controllers for the stabilization of several classes of interconnected systems. These classes are characterized in terms of the structure of the ... 
Dipolar boseeinstein condensate in a cylindrically symmetric trap
(Bilkent University, 201608)BoseEinstein Condensate (BEC) and particularly its stability dynamics has been a subject to many investigations since the first realization of this new condensed state in alkali atoms interacting via short range potential. ... 
Dynamic boundary control of the timoshenko beam
(Pergamon Press, 1992)We consider a clampedfree Timoshenko beam. To stabilize the beam vibrations, we propose a dynamic boundary control law applied at the free end of the beam. We prove that with the proposed control law, the beam vibrations ... 
A dynamic control law for the wave equation
(Elsevier, 1994)We consider a system described by the onedimensional linear wave equation in a bounded domain with appropriate boundary conditions. To stabilize the system, we propose a dynamic boundary controller applied at the free end ... 
Effect of time delays on the convergence speed of consensus dynamics
(Bilkent University, 202001)We discuss consensus problems under time delays. The presence of time delays results in an inﬁnitedimensional system rather than a system of ordinary differential equations. It has been shown that information transmission ... 
Effects of temperature, pH and counterions on the stability of peptide amphiphile nanofiber structures
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016)Peptide amphiphiles are a class of selfassembling molecules that are widely used to form bioactive nanostructures for various applications in bionanomedicine. However, peptide molecules can exhibit distinct behaviors under ... 
Efficiency and stability of probabilistic assignments in marriage problems
(Academic Press, 2016)We study marriage problems where two groups of agents, men and women, match each other and probabilistic assignments are possible. When only ordinal preferences are observable, stochastic dominance efficiency (sdefficiency) ... 
An exponential stability result for the wave equation
(Elsevier, 2002)We consider a system described by the onedimensional linear wave equation in a bounded domain with appropriate boundary conditions. To stabilize this system, we propose a dynamic boundary controller applied at the free ... 
A fault tolerant vehicle stability control using adaptive control allocation
(ASME, 2018)This paper presents an integrated faulttolerant adaptive control allocation strategy for four wheel frive  four wheel steering ground vehicles to increase yaw stability. Conventionally, control of brakes, motors and ... 
Finite time estimation for timevarying systems with delay in the measurements
(Elsevier, 2019)We build finite time observers for timevarying nonlinear systems with delays in the outputs, using a dynamic extension that computes fundamental matrices. Our observers achieve finite time convergence when no disturbances ...
