Characterizing fluid contacts by joint inversion of seismic P-wave impedance and velocity

In the past, seismic exploration technique was mainly used for gathering information about subsurface rock structures and fluids by analyzing the travel time, reflection amplitude, and phase variations. However, nowadays, many additional seismic attributes have been introduced by the seismic interpreters, which aid in the visualization of subsurface geological structures, facies...

Pressure Sensitive Sensors Based on Carbon Nanotubes, Graphene, and Its Composites

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene have attracted a great deal of interest due to their outstanding mechanical, optical, electrical, and structural properties. Most of the scientists and researchers have investigated the optical and electrical properties of these materials. However, due to unique electromechanical properties of these materials, it is required to explore the...

Influencing Factors of Poverty in Pakistan: Time Series Analysis

Poverty is one of the emerging problems being discussed and debated in various developed and developing countries including Pakistan. This study investigates influencing factors of poverty in Pakistan and discusses the theoretical linkages between poverty and its main macroeconomic variables. For this Johansen co-integration technique has been applied with multi diagnostics tests...

Existence and stability of solution to a toppled systems of differential equations of non-integer order

The aim of this paper is developing conditions that guarantee the existence of a solution to a toppled system of differential equations of noninteger order with fractional integral boundary conditions where the nonlinear functions involved in the considered system are continuous and satisfy some growth conditions. We convert the system of differential equations to a system of...

Rules for resolving Mendelian inconsistencies in nuclear pedigrees typed for two-allele markers

Gene-mapping studies, regularly, rely on examination for Mendelian transmission of marker alleles in a pedigree as a way of screening for genotyping errors and mutations. For analysis of family data sets, it is, usually, necessary to resolve or remove the genotyping errors prior to consideration. At the Center of Inherited Disease Research (CIDR), to deal with their large-scale...

Degree theory and existence of positive solutions to coupled systems of multi-point boundary value problems

In this article, we investigate existence and uniqueness of positive solutions to coupled systems of multi-point boundary value problems for fractional order differential equations of the form { D α x ( t ) = ϕ ( t , x ( t ) , y ( t ) ) , t ∈ I = [ 0 , 1 ] , D β y ( t ) = ψ ( t , x ( t ) , y ( t ) ) , t ∈ I = [ 0 , 1 ] , x ( 0 ) = g ( x ) , x ( 1 ) = δ x ( η ) , 0 < η < 1 , y ( 0...

Circulating serotypes of dengue virus and their incursion into non-endemic areas of Pakistan; a serious threat

Background Dengue virus is circulating in Pakistan since 1994, which causes major and minor outbreaks in many areas of the country. The incidence of dengue in Pakistan in past years mainly restricted to parts of Sindh and Punjab provinces. As such, a severe dengue outbreak appeared in Pakistan in 2011, particularly in Punjab province with Lahore as the most hit city (290 deaths...

Unit Root Testing and Estimation in Nonlinear ESTAR Models with Normal and Non-Normal Errors

Exponential Smooth Transition Autoregressive (ESTAR) models can capture non-linear adjustment of the deviations from equilibrium conditions which may explain the economic behavior of many variables that appear non stationary from a linear viewpoint. Many researchers employ the Kapetanios test which has a unit root as the null and a stationary nonlinear model as the alternative...

VacSol: a high throughput in silico pipeline to predict potential therapeutic targets in prokaryotic pathogens using subtractive reverse vaccinology

With advances in reverse vaccinology approaches, a progressive improvement has been observed in the prediction of putative vaccine candidates. Reverse vaccinology has changed the way of discovery and provides a mean to propose target identification in reduced time and labour. In this regard, high throughput genomic sequencing technologies and supporting bioinformatics tools have...

Antioxidant and phytochemical analysis of Ranunculus arvensis L. extracts

Background Ranunculus arvensis L. (R. arvensis) has long been used to treat a variety of medical conditions such as arthritis, asthma, hay fever, rheumatism, psoriasis, gut diseases and rheumatic pain. Here, we screened R. arvensis for antioxidant activity, phytochemical and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analyses. Methods The chloroform, chloroform:methanol...

Fuzzy-Based Sensor Fusion for Cognitive Radio-Based Vehicular Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks

In wireless sensor networks, sensor fusion is employed to integrate the acquired data from diverse sensors to provide a unified interpretation. The best and most salient advantage of sensor fusion is to obtain high-level information in both statistical and definitive aspects, which cannot be attained by a single sensor. In this paper, we propose a novel sensor fusion technique...
