The principal component analysis of continuous sample curves with higher-order B-spline functions
(EUDOXUS PRESS, LLC, 1424 BEAVER TRAIL DRIVE, CORDOVA, TN 38016 USA, 2006-06)
This article concerns the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) of a vector process with higher-order B-spline functions. The approximated PCA of this well-known process is compared with the classical PCA of the different ...
Solution of fifth order boundary value problems by using local polynomial regression
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 360 PARK AVE SOUTH, NEW YORK, NY 10010-1710 USA, 2007-03-15)
In this paper, we present a novel method based on the local polynomial regression for solving of fifth order boundary value problems. The method is tested on numerical example to demonstrate its usefulness. The method ...
The numerical solution of the one-dimensional heat equation by using third degree B-spline functions
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2008-11)
In this paper, the boundary value problem for the one-dimensional heat equation with a nonlocal initial condition is examined by using the third degree B-splines functions. The numerical solution of the equations are ...
Fifth-degree B-spline solution for a fourth-order parabolic partial differential equations
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 360 PARK AVE SOUTH, NEW YORK, NY 10010-1710 USA, 2008-07-15)
In this paper, we find the numerical solution of a fourth-order parabolic partial differential equation. A family of B-spline methods has been considered for the numerical solution of the problems. The results show that ...
A model proposal for the chaotic structure of Istanbul stock exchange
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2008-06)
Chaos theory is considered a novel way of understanding the behaviour of nonlinear dynamic systems. It is well known that the evaluation of chaotic systems is dependent on initial conditions since exponential growth error ...
Particle swarm optimization algorithm for permutation flowshop sequencing problem
(SPRINGER-VERLAG BERLIN, HEIDELBERGER PLATZ 3, D-14197 BERLIN, GERMANY, 2004)
This paper presents a particle swarm optimization algorithm (PSO) to solve the permutation flowshop sequencing problem (PFSP) with makespan criterion. Simple but very efficient local search based on the variable neighborhood ...
Placing Democratization within the Global Frame: Sociological Approaches to Universalism, and Democratic Contestation in Contemporary Turkey
(BLACKWELL PUBL LTD, 108 COWLEY RD, OXFORD OX4 1JF, OXON, ENGLAND, 2002-05)
The process of democratization in Turkey is enhanced by both proximity to the European Union's enlargement process and universalistic discourses of personhood rights. and. at the same time, compromised by a nationalistic ...
Confronting 'Uncivil Society' and the 'Dark Side of Globalization': Are Sociological Concepts up to the Task?
(SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 6 BONHILL STREET, LONDON EC2A 4PU, ENGLAND, 2001-11-30)
International terrorism is frequently categorized as one element of 'uncivil society' or as the 'dark side of globalization.' The paper examines these concepts, finding them unhelpful in understanding the context for the ...
Resisting globalization? Turkey-EU relations and human and political rights in the context of cosmopolitan democratization
(Sage Publications Ltd, 6 Bonhill Street, London Ec2A 4Pu, England, 2003-06)
Turkey's relationship with the European Union (EU) is dominated by issues of democratization and human rights and is best approached from a perspective which understands the nature of the cosmopolitan regimes which work ...
