Melon pod fermentation and its effects on physio-chemical characteristics of melon seeds

  Studies were carried out to determine the effects of melon pod fermentation on the proximate and mineral composition of the melon seeds. Two varieties of melon commonly found in Nigeria were analyzed for similarities in this study. Proximate and mineral compositions of the seeds (Citrullus vulgaris, Egusi melon) were determined using standard analytical procedures. Comparative analysis of the seeds from...

Impulsive control in permanent magnet synchronous motor

  Permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) appears a chaotic phenomenon when PMSM is turn on or off. This paper analyses parameters of PMSM on how to effects chaos in PMSM and introduce the basic impulsive differential equation theory. An effective method is proposed by impulsive control base on impulsive differential equation theory. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the theoretical...

Selection of chickpea cultivars with agronomic phosphorus (P) utilization characters as influenced by Rhizobium inoculation

  Evaluation of phosphorus (P) efficient chickpea cultivars with and withoutRhizobium inoculation will provide considerable genetic resources for sustaining the yields and quality with reduced P application under the P deficient conditions on agricultural fields. For this aim, a pot experiment was conducted using a Calcareous Usthochrepts soil. Twenty different chickpea cultivars (Cicer arietinumL.) with...

Identification of players’ positions in a multi-agent game using artificial neural networks and C4.5 algorithm: A comparative study

  This research aims to classify simulated players in a multi-agent game for the best position and role they may play in according to their abilities. Three approaches were investigated for this purpose, C4.5 classification algorithm, backpropagation neural network and radial basis function network. This work depends on a video game that uses 28 attributes to distinguish every player from another. The applied...
