An evolutionary basic design tool
(Bilkent University, 2010)As a creative act, design aims at achieving innovative solutions to fulfill the requirements provided in the problem definition. In recent years, computational methods began to be used not only in design presentation but ... 
Evolutionary collaborative design studios
(Bilkent University, 2003)In Collaborative Design Studios (CDS), knowledge and information can be shared in discussions among students and instructors, while developing alternative solutions and the task coordination is achieved through the networked ... 
An exact algorithm for biobjective integer programming problems
(Bilkent University, 201907)We propose an exact algorithm to find all nondominated points of biobjective integer programming problems, which arise in various applications of operations research. The algorithm is based on dividing objective space ... 
An exact algorithm for the vehicle routing problem with backhauls
(Bilkent University, 2001)We consider the Vehicle Routing Problem with Backhauls, in which a eet of vehicles located at a central depot is to be used to serve a set of customers partitioned into two subsets of linehaul and backhaul customers. ... 
Exact and approximate decoupling and noninteracting control problems
(Bilkent University, 1989)In this thesis, we consider “exact” and “approximate” versions of the disturbance decoupling problem and the noninteracting control problem for linear, timeinvariant systems. In the exact versions of these problems, we ... 
An exact approach to minimize single machine total weighted tardiness problem with unequal release dates
(Bilkent University, 1998)In this research, the problem of scheduling a set of jobs on a single machine to minimize total weighted tardiness with unequal release dates is considered. We present a new dominance rule by considering the time depending ... 
Exact blind channel estimator
(Bilkent University, 1998)Recently blind identification of singleinput multipleoutput (SIMO) FIR channels has received considerable attention. The obtained exact identification approaches place overrestrictive constraints on the channels. In ... 
Exact solution algorithms for biobjective mixed integer programming problems
(Bilkent University, 202008)In this thesis, objective space based exact solution algorithms for biobjective mixed integer programming problems are proposed. The algorithms solve scalarization models in order to explore predetermined regions of the ... 
Exact solution approaches for nonHamiltonian vehicle routing problems
(Bilkent University, 201708)In this thesis, we study di erent nonHamiltonian vehicle routing problem variants and concentrate on developing e cient optimization algorithms to solve them. First, we consider the split delivery vehicle routing problem ... 
Exact solution methodologies for the pcenter problem under single and multiple allocation strategies
(Bilkent University, 2013)The pcenter problem is a relatively well known facility location problem that involves locating p identical facilities on a network to minimize the maximum distance between demand nodes and their closest facilities. The ... 
Exact solutions and heuristics for multiproduct inventory pricing problem
(Bilkent University, 2014)We study the multiproduct inventory pricing problem under stochastic and price sensitive demand. We have initial inventory of m resources whose different combinations form n products. Products are perishable and need ... 
The examination of new equivalent edge currents in the prediction of high frequency backscattering from flat plates
(Bilkent University, 1991)Equivalent edge currents based on the geometrical theory of dilfraction (GTD) have been utilized for the prediction of electromagnetic scattering from edged bodies. These equivalent currents are use Keller’s diffraction ... 
The Examination of the effect of polarization on the radiation losses of bent optical fibers
(Bilkent University, 1990)It has long been recognized that the bending losses in weakly guiding optical fibers, is independent of the polarization for large bend radius. We showed this fact using the volume equivalent current method. The procedure ... 
Examination of the four selected food industry subsectors in Turkey and in the European Community
(Bilkent University, 1994) 
Examining the qualities of the homeroom teacher
(Bilkent University, 2012) 
Example based machine translation with type associated translation examples
(Bilkent University, 2007)Example based machine translation is a translation technique that leans on machine learning paradigm. This technique had been modeled by the learning process as: a man is given short and simple sentences in language A ... 
Example based retargeting human motion to arbitrary mesh models
(Bilkent University, 2013)Animation of mesh models can be accomplished in many ways, including character animation with skinned skeletons, deformable models, or physicbased simulation. Generating animations with all of these techniques is time ... 
Exceptional Belyi coverings
(Bilkent University, 2015)Exceptional Belyi covering is a connected Belyi covering uniquely determined by its ramification scheme or the respective dessin d’enfant. Well known examples are cyclic, dihedral, and Chebyshev coverings. We add to this ... 
Exchange rate passthrough in Turkey : asymmetric cointegration analysis
(Bilkent University, 2009)In this thesis, exchange rate passthrough in Turkey is analyzed using Johansen (1988) and EngleGranger (1987) two step cointegration procedures. As a result of the analysis, evidence is found for a cointegrating ... 
Exchange rate regime, world oil prices, and the Mexican economy
(Bilkent University, 202006)This thesis studies the effects of the exchange rate regime of the Mexican economy on how the oil price shocks affect the domestic economic performance by considering the period from January 1992 to December 2019. The ...
