    • Monodromy groups of real Enriques surfaces 

      Erdoğan Demir, Sultan (Bilkent University, 2012-09)
      In this thesis, we compute the monodromy groups of real Enriques surfaces. The principal tools are the deformation classification of such surfaces and a modified version of Donaldson’s trick, relating real Enriques ...
    • Monoid actions, their categorification and applications 

      Erdal, Mehmet Akif (Bilkent University, 2017-01)
      We study actions of monoids and monoidal categories, and their relations with (co)homology theories. We start by discussing actions of monoids via bi-actions. We show that there is a well-defined functorial reverse action ...

    • The monomial Burnside functor 

      Okay, Cihan (Bilkent University, 2009)
      Given a finite group G, we can realize the permutation modules by the linearization map defined from the Burnside ring B(G) to the character ring of G, denoted AK(G). But not all KG-modules are permutation modules. To ...
    • Monomial curves and the Cohen-Macaulayness of their tangent cones 

      Arslan, Sefa Feza (Bilkent University, 1999)
      In this thesis, we show that in affine /-space with / > 4, there are monomial curves with arbitrarily large minimal number of generators of the tangent cone and still having Cohen-Macaulay tangent cone. In order to prove ...
    • Monomial Gotzmann sets 

      Pir, Ata Fırat (Bilkent University, 2011)
      A homogeneous set of monomials in a quotient of the polynomial ring S := F[x1, . . . , xn] is called Gotzmann if the size of this set grows minimally when multiplied with the variables. We note that Gotzmann sets in the ...
    • Monument lighting 

      Tural, Mehmed Alp (Bilkent University, 2001)
      This thesis is related with the concept of monument lighting. It focuses on the interaction between two elements of art; light and the monument, and also the interaction between human and monument regarding the psychological, ...

    • Mothballing in the army 

      Bozkurt, Bayram (Bilkent University, 2003)
      Modern armies mothball tanks, ships, planes, and vehicles. Up until now Turkish Army has not used mothballing. The surplus weapons are stored in arsenals. We just leave them idle vulnerable to rusting and try to keep ...
    • The Mother of Gods from right here: the goddess Meter in her Central Anatolian contexts 

      Aversano, Joseph Salvatore (Bilkent University, 2019-09)
      There are upwards of sixty different cult epithets for the Phrygian goddess Meter in Central Anatolia alone during the Roman Imperial period. Considering that only three or four of her epithets are known from the Hellenistic ...
    • Motion artifact reduction techniques in magnetic resonance imaging 

      Atalar, Ergin (Bilkent University, 1991)
      It is shown that the expansion/shrinkage and rotational motions of the body cause phase and amplitude distortions and non-rectangular sampling over the A:-domain. If these distortions are not compensated then the reconstructed ...
    • Motion capture from single video sequence 

      Demir, İbrahim (Bilkent University, 2006)
      3D human pose reconstruction is a popular research area since it can be used in various applications. Currently most of the methods work for constrained environments, where multi camera views are available and camera ...
