    • Solutions to conjectures on a nonlinear recursive equation 

      Öcalan, Ö.; Duman, Oktay (Springer Science and Business Media Deutschland GmbH, 2020-10-01)
      We obtain solutions to some conjectures about the onlinear difference equation xn+1=α+βxn−1e−xn,n=0,1,…,α,β'0. More precisely, we get not only a condition under which the equilibrium point of the above equation is globally ...

      Kılıç, Emrah (TUBITAK, 2018-05-08)
      In this paper, we will investigate and evaluate, in closed forms, three binomial sums weighted by falling and rising factorials. We first use the relationships between the rising, falling factorials and the binomial ...
    • Sex and Gender Differences in Achievement Motivation across Cultures

    • Hardy-Type Tauberian Conditions on Time Scales 

      Turan Yalçın, Ceylan; Duman, Oktay (Birkhauser Verlag AG, 2018-10-01)
      Hardy’s well-known Tauberian theorem for number sequences states that if a sequence x= (xk) satisfies lim Cx= L and Δ xk: = xk + 1- xk= O(1 / k) , then lim x= L, where Cx denotes the Cesàro mean (arithmetic mean) of x. In ...
    • Nationhood as a social representation: Making sense of the Kurdish opening in Turkey
