Civilmilitary relations
(Taylor & Francis, 20190409)Until recent decades, the military, on the whole, played a special role both in the Ottoman and Republican polities. In circa 1299, a military force, at the time consisting of warlords, formed the Ottoman principality. ... 
Cucurbituril containing supramolecular nanomaterials
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 201901)National Magnetic Resonance Research Center UMRAM Cucurbiturilbased supramolecular nanomaterials are getting increasing attention due to their tailorable properties and functions. By making use of the host–guest chemistry ... 
Cucurbiturilassisted supramolecular polymeric hydrogels
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 201901)Cucurbiturilassisted supramolecular polymeric hydrogels (CBSPHs), formed by supramolecular crosslinking of polymer chains via directional noncovalent interactions, are a novel class of threedimensional crosslinked ... 
Cucurbituril homologues and derivatives: syntheses and functionalization
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 201901)In this chapter, we discuss the syntheses and functionalization of cucurbituril (CB[n]) homologues and derivatives. We begin with a historical background on CB[n] chemistry, from the first known CB[n] homologue, CB[6], to ... 
Intrinsic oscillations of auditory networks in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
(Yerküre Tanıtım ve Yayıncılık Hizmetleri A. Ş., 2019)Objective: Several types of evidence have shown that auditory networks are dysfunctional in schizophrenia (Sch) and bipolar disorders (BD). Auditory cortices show abnormalities in hallucinations or during remission. This ... 
Glycosylated porphyrincucurbituril conjugate for photodynamic inactivation of bacteria and doxorubicin carriage for anticancer drug delivery
(World Scientific Publishing, 201910)Porphyrin derivatives are highly attractive in the construction of multifunctional molecular platforms with interesting properties and applications. In this regard, we report here the use of a multifunctional porphyrinbased ... 
Complete intersection monomial curves and the Cohen—Macaulayness of their tangent cones
(World Scientific Publishing, 2019)Let C(n) be a complete intersection monomial curve in the 4dimensional affine space. In this paper we study the complete intersection property of the monomial curve C(n + wv), where w > 0 is an integer and v ∈ ℕ4. In ... 
Twodimensional Bose polaron using diffusion Monte Carlo method
(World Scientific Publishing, 201909)We investigate the properties of a mobile impurity immersed in a twodimensional (2D) Bose gas at zero temperature using quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) methods. The repulsive boson–boson and impurityboson interactions are ... 
Nonequilibrium electron relaxation in graphene
(World Scientific Publishing, 2019)We apply memory function formalism to investigate nonequilibrium electron relaxation in graphene. Within the premises of twotemperature model (TTM), explicit expressions of the imaginary part of the memory function or ... 
Black hole solutions and Euler equation in Rastall and generalized Rastall theories of gravity
(World Scientific Publishing, 2019)Focusing on the special case of generalized Rastall theory, as a subclass of the nonminimal curvaturematter coupling theories in which the field equations are mathematically similar to the Einstein field equations in the ... 
Sequential warped products: curvature and conformal vector fields
(University of Nis, 2019)In this note, we introduce a new type of warped products called as sequential warped products to cover a wider variety of exact solutions to Einstein’s field equation. First, we study the geometry of sequential warped ... 
Now you see him, now you don’t: anthropomorphic representations of the Hittite Kings
(University of Chicago Press, 201910)Hittite kings lived as mortals and became deified only after death. Beyond mere flesh and blood, the identities of the kings were encapsulated in their office, title, and the idea of kingship. Their representations were ... 
On the meaning of “the meaning of life”
(Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos, 201905)When it comes to a question as notoriously unclear as “What is the meaning of life?”, clarifying the question and its conceptual setting is a necessary step before attempting to answer the question. The analysis of the ... 
Assessment of the visual pathways in patients with neurofibromatosis1 by 3Sspace technique with 3Tesla MRI
(TÜBİTAK, 201912)Background/aim: We aimed to evaluate the size/tortuosity of the optic nerve (ON) and the dilatation of the ON sheath (ONS) in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) patients with 3TMRI, and to assess the usefulness of 3DSPACE ... 
The impact of JAK/STAT inhibitor ruxolitinib on the genesis of lymphoproliferative diseases
(TÜBİTAK, 201904)Background/aim: Ruxolitinib, a JAK/STAT signaling pathway inhibitor targeted drug, has been approved for the controlling of disease symptoms and splenomegaly in patients with myeloproliferative neoplastic diseases. Recently, ... 
The biobjective multiarmed bandit: learning approximate lexicographic optimal allocations
(TÜBİTAK, 201903)We consider a biobjective sequential decisionmaking problem where an allocation (arm) is called ϵ lexicographic optimal if its expected reward in the first objective is at most ϵ smaller than the highest expected reward, ... 
Tracking pain in resting state networks in patients with hereditary and diabetic neuropathy
(Turkish Neuropsychiatric Society, 201906)Introduction:Chronic pain is associated with maladaptive plastic changes in the brain. It is usually more prominent in acquired pathologies of nerve fibers as in diabetic neuropathy despite less severe degeneration than ... 
Longest increasing subsequences in involutions avoiding patterns of length three
(TÜBİTAK, 201907)We study the longest increasing subsequences in random involutions that avoid the patterns of length three under the uniform probability distribution. We determine the exact and asymptotic formulas for the average length ... 
On the Cohen–Macaulayness of tangent cones of monomial curves in A 4 (K)
(TÜBİTAK, 201905)In this paper we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the Cohen–Macaulayness of the tangent cone of a monomial curve in 4dimensional affine space. We particularly study the case where C is a Gorenstein noncomplete ... 
Comparison of geometric and driveinduced nonlinearities in doubly clamped, thermoelastic nanoelectromechanical systems
(TÜBİTAK, 201906)The performance of resonant sensors based on nanoelectromechanical systems depends critically on the maximum amplitude of oscillation reached in the linear regime. The maximum linear amplitude is determined by nonlinear ...
