On lower degree bounds for vector invariants over finite fields
(Bilkent University, 2000)The purpose of this thesis is to obtain a lower degree bound in modular invariant theory for a special case. More precisely, let G be any group and k be a finite field of positive characteristic p such that p divides G ... 
On mixed H2=H∞ controller design for systems with time delay
(Bilkent University, 201807)This study discusses mixed H2=H∞ controller design problem for uncertain Linear TimeInvariant (LTI) systems with a time delay. More precisely, the goal is to find an internally stabilizing controller that minimizes ... 
On monomial Burnside rings
(Bilkent University, 2003)This thesis is concerned with some different aspects of the monomial Burnside rings, including an extensive, self contained introduction of the A−fibred G−sets, and the monomial Burnside rings. However, this work has two ... 
On possible deterioration of smoothness under the operation of convolution
(Bilkent University, 1996)We show that the convolution of two probability densities which are restrictions to R of entire functions can possess infinite essential supremuin on each interval. We also present several sufficient conditions of ... 
On power series with one singular point at circumference of convergence
(Bilkent University, 2002)We obtain two refinements of Faber’s theorem related to power series with one singular point at circumference of convergence. The first one characterizes growth at the singular point in more precise scale of growth. The ... 
On real Enriques surfaces
(Bilkent University, 1997) 
On sections and tails of power series
(Bilkent University, 2002)The thesis is devoted to the study of connections between properties of a power series and properties of its sections and tails. Power series having sections or tails with multiply positive coefficients are considered ... 
On some of the simple composition factors of the biset functor of Ppermutation modules
(Bilkent University, 201607)Let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic p, which is a prime, and C denote the field of complex numbers. Given a finite group G, letting ppk(G) denote the Grothendieck group of ppermutation kGmodules, we ... 
On stability and efficiency in different economic environments
(Bilkent University, 2011)This thesis consists of four main chapters. In the first main part, hedonic coalition formation games where each player’s preferences rely only upon the members of her coalition are studied. A new stability notion under ... 
On stock rationing policies for continuous review inventory systems
(Bilkent University, 2005)Rationing is an inventory policy that allows prioritization of different demand classes. In this thesis, we analyze the stock rationing policies for continuous review systems. We clarify some of the ambiguities present ... 
On the distribution of throughput of transfer lines
(Bilkent University, 1998)A transfer line corresponds to a manufacturing system consisting of a number of work stations in series integrated into one system by a common transfer mechanism and a control system. There is a vast literature on the ... 
On the effective bandwidth for resource management in ATM networks
(Bilkent University, 1997) 
On the existence of equilibrium in games and economies
(Bilkent University, 2001)There are three main contributions of this thesis in equilibrium theory. The first is about the existence of equilibrium in discontinuous games. We find sufficient conditions for the existence of εNash equilibrium in ... 
On the existence of Hopf cycles in optimal growth models with time delay
(Bilkent University, 2008)In this thesis, we analyzed the existence of cycles `a la Poincar´eAndronovHopf in optimal growth models with time delay. The analysis builds upon a new method developed, which investigates the number of pure imaginary roots ... 
On the exponential map of the Burnside ring
(Bilkent University, 2002)We study the exponential map of the Burnside ring. We prove the equivalence of the three different characterizations of this map and examine the surjectivity in order to describe the elements of the unit group of the ... 
On the impossibility of the ontic view of mechanistic explanations
(Bilkent University, 201905)This thesis addresses the ongoing dispute among the New Mechanists on the epistemic and ontic conceptions of mechanistic explanations. The ontic view stipulates that explanations should be based on an identity relation ... 
On the measurement of productivity and environmental efficiency in the presence of the joint production of goods and bads : an application to OECD countries
(Bilkent University, 2003)Productivity measures, which do not account for environmental performance, are biased. When it comes to incorporating the developments in environmental performance into the measurement of productivity, the traditional ... 
On the minimal number of elements generating an algebraic set
(Bilkent University, 2002)In this thesis we present studies on the general problem of finding the minimal number of elements generating an algebraic set in nspace both set and ideal theoretically. 
On the monodromy groups of real Enriques surfaces
(Bilkent University, 2003)In this thesis we start the study of the fundamental group of the moduli space of real Enriques surfaces. The principal result is the assertion that, with one exception, any permutation of components of the half E (2) R of ... 
On the newsvendor problem with multiple inputs under a carbon emission constraint
(Bilkent University, 2012)In this thesis, we consider two problems in the newsvendor setting with multiple inputs, under a carbon emission constraint and nonlinear production functions. In the first problem, we assume a strict carbon cap and ...
