    • Quantum polarization properties of radiation 

      Ünsal, Mithat (Bilkent University, 1999)
      New bosonic operators, describing the polarization properties of photons at any point with respect to a source, are introduced. It is shown that, unlike the classical picture, the local quantum description of polarization ...
    • Quantum properties of multipole radiation 

      Soykal, Öney Orhunç (Bilkent University, 2002)
      In this study, multipole expansion of quantum electromagnetic radiation is constructed and quantized by canonical transformation with increasing demand of some modern research areas of physics such as entanglement of the ...
    • Quantum statistics of light interacting with matter 

      Müstecaplıoğlu, ÖE (Bilkent University, 1999)
      Studies on some systems in which light interacts with matter are performed from quantum statistical point of view. As a result of these studies a novel effect which can be utilized for detecting squeezed phonons is ...
    • The quasi-equivalence problem and isomorphic classification of Whitney spaces 

      Arslan, Bora (Bilkent University, 1999)
      We proved that the quasi-equivalence property holds in a subclass of the class of stable nuclear Frechet, Kothe spaces. Also we considered the isomorphic classification of spaces of Whitney functions on some special ...
