Numerical solutions for the time fractional variant Bussinesq equation by homotopy analysis method

In this article, the fractional derivatives in the sense of Caputo, and the homotopy analysis method (HAM) are used to construct the approximate solutions for the nonlinear fractional variant Bussinesq equations with respect to time fractional derivative. The HAM contains a certain auxiliary h parameter which provides us a simple way to adjust and control the convergence region and rate of convergence of the series...

Effect of plant biostimulants on fruit cracking and quality attributes of pomegranate cv. Kandhari kabuli

The present experiment was laid out in the experimental orchard of the Department of Fruit Science, Dr. Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, Himachal Pradesh during the year 2008 to 2009. The experiment consisted of 19 treatments with three replications. The pomegranate trees cv. kandhari kabuli under investigation were subjected to foliar spray of biostimulants viz. vipul, spic...

Henna stained palms in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common diagnosed upper limb compressive neuropathy; though its diagnosis remains controversial. Some patients apply Henna (the extracts of the plant Lawsonia inermis) to their palms to relieve the symptoms. We don’t know how common is this practice and if it does help in clinical diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to examine the diagnostic value of a new clinical...

An examination of the effect of discretization on a naïve Bayes model's performance

A Bayesian network (or a belief network) is a probabilistic graphical model that represents a set of variables and their probabilistic independencies. Some researches often involve continuous random variables. In order to apply these continuous variables to BN models, these variables should convert into discrete variables with limited states, often two. During the discretization process, one problem that researchers...

Accumulation of heavy metals on soil and vegetable crops grown on sewage and tube well water irrigation

Consumption of food crops contaminated with heavy metals is a major food chain route for human exposure. In the present study, vegetables grown in the sewage and tube well water irrigation are Raphanus sativus, Daucus carrota and Brassica rapa. Concentration of Cd, Pb and Ni was significantly higher in sewage irrigated soil at all the four depths (0-15, 15-30, 30-45 and 45-60 cm), respectively. Cadmium, Lead and Nickel...
