Psychometric Analysis of the Interpersonal Sensitivity Measure (IPSM) Among Turkish Undergraduate Students
Tayfun Do?an,Seda Sapmaz
Journal of Theoretical Educational Science , 2012,
Abstract: Interpersonal sensitivity is, undue and excessive awareness of and sensitivity to, the behavior and feelings of others. The Interpersonal Sensitivity Measure (IPSM) is a self-reported scale developed by Boyce and Parker (1989) to measure hypersensitivity to interpersonal relations. The aim of the present study is to adapt the IPSM into Turkish. The validity of the IPSM is investigated by confirmatory (CFA) and exploratory (EFA) factor analyses and criterion-related validity. The result of the CFA suggested that the original factor structure of the IPSM does not fit the present data. The EFA revealed a new three-factor structure for the IPSM. The reliability of the IPSM is investigated by computing internal consistency. Results showed that the Turkish IPSM had a high internal consistency (Cronbach alpha = .81). The psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the IPSM showed a satisfactory level of reliability and validity.

Abstract: Turkish immigrants have always been an important dynamic for the social and business life in Germany since October 1961, “Agreement for Sending the Turkish Workers to Germany”. They have then started to become important players as entrepreneurs in the economy after 1990s. This study aims to analyze performance of Turkish and German companies in production and service industries operating in Germany by using financial analysis methodology, and it aims to compare the results. Using 2007 financial data, the empirical results show that Turkish firms in both industries take more liquidity risk than their German counterparts while they are using less leverage in order to finance their investments. Moreover, Turkish companies have less profitability than German companies with the effect of high cost of debt. Especially in service industry, Turkish firms have low level of return for a unit of risk and low level of output for a unit of input.

Abstract: This paper aims to find out the attitudes of Turkish children who live inBelgium towards Turkish in terms of demographical features. Research design ofthis study is scanning model. The participants are 198 Turkish children who tookTurkish and Turkish Culture course in 2010-2011 education year in Anvers, Gent,Genk and Brussel regions of Belgium, were chosen randomly and aged between 11-15.In order to reach data for the study, “Attitude Scale of Turkish Children WhoLive Abroad Towards Their Mother Tongues” and “Personal Information Form”,which were developed by the researchers, were used. SPSS 19.0 package programwas used for analyses. In the study the findings from the analyses were interpretedas significant with 0.05 significance level.After the research, it has been seen that the attitudes of Turkish Children wholive in Belgium towards their mother tongue are high (among the points of none, alittle, middle, high and full). Moreover, the attitudes of the Turkish children inBelgium who participated in the study towards Turkish have been revealed not tochange significantly in terms of gender, age, mother’s educational status, father’seducational status, father’s job, the frequency of going to Turkey and the length ofresidence.

Abstract: This study was conducted with the aim to determine to what extent 5th grade Turkish text books included critical thinking strategies. In the study, it was examined whether course books included 5 dimensions of cognitive strategies or not. In this study, qualitative and quantitative research designs were used together. Document review was used as qualitative data collection method and 22 texts in 5th Grade Turkish text books published by Ministry of National Education and a private publishing house taught in Province of Sakarya were reviewed. This data collection tool developed was applied to the texts in accordance with the concepts determined by three individual researchers and checking process of the concepts was performed. As a result of the research, it was concluded that the texts in 5th grade Turkish text books prepared by National Education Publishing House included the strategies for developing critical thinking skills of students more than the texts in 5th grade Turkish course books prepared by the private publishing house. In addition, it was seen that both National Education Publishing House and private publishing house did not include the critical t hinking dimensions to the required extent.

Abstract: In this study, it has been analyzed that the perception of the natural environment and the importance of environmental education over the Turks in Turkish proverbs which is one of the important building blocks of folk culture. In the introduction, after a theoretical knowledge base about the natural environment and human interaction have been established, information is given about the basic concepts of the study such as Turkish culture-proverbial relationships and importance of proverbs in terms of environmental education. In other parts of the study, it has been analyzed that how they perceive Turkish vegetation, animals, climate, soil and water in terms of the environmental value based on 507 Turkish proverbs which were searched and included in the study from different sources related to the natural environment. It has been seen in the examination that Turks have great importance of proverbs that contains climate on the perception of the natural environment of the first place, and it is followed by proverbs about the climate and animals. It was put forward that the proverbs which are etched in public memory is very important in terms of environmental education.
Measure Theoretic Aspects of Oscillations of Error Terms  [PDF]

Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: In this paper we obtain $\Omega$ and $\Omega_\pm$ estimates for a wide class of error terms $\Delta(x)$ appearing in Perron summation formula. We revisit some classical $\Omega$ and $\Omega_{\pm}$ bounds on $\Delta(x)$, and obtain $\Omega$ bounds for Lebesgue measure of the following types of sets: \begin{align*} \A_+&:=\{T\leq x \leq 2T: \Delta(x)> \lambda x^{\alpha}\},\\ \A_-&:=\{T\leq x \leq 2T: \Delta(x)< -\lambda x^{\alpha}\},\\ \A~&:=\{T\leq x \leq 2T: |\Delta(x)|>\lambda x^{\alpha}\}, \end{align*} where $\alpha, \lambda>0$. We also prove that if Lebesgue measure of $\A$ is $\Omega(T^{1-\delta})$ then \[\Delta(x)=\Omega_\pm(x^{\alpha-\delta})\] for any $0<\delta<\alpha$.
Nonlinear equations with natural growth terms and measure data  [cached]

Electronic Journal of Differential Equations , 2002,
Abstract: We consider a class of nonlinear elliptic equations containing a $p$-Laplacian type operator, lower order terms having natural growth with respect to the gradient, and bounded measures as data. The model example is the equation $$ -Delta_p(u) + g(u)|abla u|^p=mu $$ in a bounded set $Omegasubset mathbb{R}^N$, coupled with a Dirichlet boundary condition. We provide a review of the results recently obtained in the absorption case (when $g(s)sgeq0$) and prove a new existence result without any sign condition on $g$, assuming only that $gin L^1({bf R})$. This latter assumption is proved to be optimal for existence of solutions for any measure $mu$.

Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1088/1367-2630/12/7/073025
Abstract: The geometric measure of entanglement is investigated for permutation symmetric pure states of multipartite qubit systems, in particular the question of maximum entanglement. This is done with the help of the Majorana representation, which maps an n qubit symmetric state to n points on the unit sphere. It is shown how symmetries of the point distribution can be exploited to simplify the calculation of entanglement and also help find the maximally entangled symmetric state. Using a combination of analytical and numerical results, the most entangled symmetric states for up to 12 qubits are explored and discussed. The optimization problem on the sphere presented here is then compared with two classical optimization problems on the S^2 sphere, namely Toth's problem and Thomson's problem, and it is observed that, in general, they are different problems.

Abstract: Especially western countries have made plenty of studies to teach their own languages. Those studies have increased obviously. Moreover, the area of teaching Turkish to foreigners have been progressing and becoming widespread rapidly. Turkish language teaching have been doing in a lot of places both at home and abroad. Interests in Turkish language have been increasing day by day. Accordingly, eligible course materials and syllabus are required. However, the institutions which teach Turkish prepare the course materials on the basis of the syllabus they prepare on their own. These syllabuses reflect different approaches in terms of content. As a result, there have been differences in the contents of coursebooks. This shows that there is not an international attitude towards teaching Turkish to foreigners although it is seen as a matter of approach. This international situation can only be overcome via CEF language teaching syllabus which is applied by European union, European Union member and non-member countries therefore, this study aims to prepare Turkish language teaching syllabus in line with the Common European Framework at A1 - A2 level for foreigners who want to learn Turkish by considering the cultural and structural aspects of our language.
“Vitruvius Square” and Related Equations in Turkish Men in Terms of Artistic Anatomy
Trakya Universitesi Tip Fakultesi Dergisi , 2007,
Abstract: Objectives: Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, in his book named “De Architectura”, stated that the height of a person is equal to his or her length of outstreched arms and fits to a square. He also divided one's height into four equal parts and stated that the length of each of these parts equals to 25% of the height of the individual. This study aimed to investigate to what extent Turkish men fit the Vitruvius square and its equations.Study Design: Specific body distances of 50 male students were determined by anthropometric measurement techniques and recorded in forms prepared in advance. Then, the arithmetic means and standard deviations were calculated for each distance and compared with the Vitruvius square and related equations.Results: The height of the participants was 173.3±6.83 cm and their length of outstretched arms was 178.4±7.38 cm. Only 16% of the subjects were determined to fit to the square, 12% remained within the square and 72% were out of the square. Additionally, a very low proportion of the participants met the equations.Conclusion: It was observed that a great majority of Turkish men do not fit “Vitruvius square” and its equations.
