#### Analysis of the 2D nonconcentric large reflector antenna-in-radome system: H-polarization case

(IEEE, 2004)

2D nonconcentric reflector antenna-in-radome system is analyzed for H-polarization case. Rigorous formulation is performed depending on the MoR, Green's function and CSP methods. Larger geometries are solved in reasonable ...

#### Permuting sparse rectangular matrices into block-diagonal form

(SIAM, 2004)

We investigate the problem of permuting a sparse rectangular matrix into block-diagonal form. Block-diagonal form of a matrix grants an inherent parallelism for solving the deriving problem, as recently investigated in the ...

#### Diagnosis of gastric carcinoma by classification on feature projections

(Elsevier, 2004)

A new classification algorithm, called benefit maximizing classifier on feature projections (BCFP), is developed and applied to the problem of diagnosis of gastric carcinoma. The domain contains records of patients with ...

#### How content management problem of a remote laboratory system can be handled by integrating an open source learning management system? Problems and solutions

(IEEE, 2007)

This paper represents the design and implementation of the integration process of an open source learning management system (LMS) to the remote laboratory platform. The reason of using a learning management system is to ...

#### Coaching engineering freshmen at Bilkent University

(Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Engineering, 2005)

In September 2003, the Faculty of Engineering at Bilkent University created an office to help first year students adapt to university life and start their academic studies effectively. For each of the three Departments of ...

#### Solving school bus routing problems through integer programming

(Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., 2007)

In this paper, an exact solution approach is described for solving a real-life school bus routing problem (SBRP) for transporting the students of an elementary school throughout central Ankara, Turkey. The problem is ...

#### Computing moments of first passage times to a subset of states in Markov chains

(SIAM, 2005)

This paper presents a relatively efficient and accurate method to compute the moments of first passage times to a subset of states in finite ergodic Markov chains. With the proposed method, the moment computation problem ...

#### Problem-based learning in an intercultural business communication course: communication challenges in intercultural relationships in internationalizing small-or medium-sized enterprises

(Sage Publications, Inc., 2008)

Teachers of intercultural business communication may want to consider using problem-based learning (PBL), an instructional approach that places learners in problem-solving situations, that is, students are presented with ...

#### The network design problem with relays

(Elsevier, 2007)

The network design problem with relays (NDPR) is defined on an undirected graph G = (V, E, K), where V = {1, ..., n} is a vertex set, E = {(i, j) : i, j ∈ V, i < j} is an edge set. The set K = {(o(k), d(k))} is a set ...

#### Componentwise bounds for nearly completely decomposable Markov chains using stochastic comparison and reordering

(Elsevier, 2005)

This paper presents an improved version of a componentwise bounding algorithm for the state probability vector of nearly completely decomposable Markov chains, and on an application it provides the first numerical results ...
