Can I use someone's thesis published and accessible from Internet to create code derived from it and sell it in the Marketplace?
The title refers to content inside a thesis in the link:
where some of the examples of code found in the appendices can be converted by me from OpenGL/GLSL to HLSL with lots of modifications and transformed into two separate plugins for Unreal Engine.
Thanks in advance!

Under the terms of the Marketplace Distribution Agreement (https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace-distribution-agreement), you must warrant that you have all necessary rights to content you deliver to Epic for distribution through the Marketplace.
We aren't really able to speak to what rights you have to that particular thesis or the code therein. That will depend on at least the nature of the code and the terms under which the thesis was published. Please note that just because a work is publicly accessible does NOT mean that it is in the public domain.
