Reply to “Comments on ‘There Is No Axiomatic System for the Quantum Theory’”

Author(s):Koji Nagata

ABSTRACT
Barros discusses that [Jose Acacio de Barros, Int. J. Theor. Phys. 50, 1828 (2011)] Nagata derives inconsistencies from quantum mechanics [K. Nagata, Int. J. Theor. Phys. 48, 3532 (2009)]. Barros considers that the inconsistencies do not come from quantum mechanics, but from extra assumptions about the reality of observables. Here we discuss the fact that there is a contradiction within the quantum theory. We discuss the fact that only one expected value in a spin-1/2 pure state 〈σx〉rules out the Continue reading

Mathematical Modeling of a Metabolic Network to Study the Impact of Food Contaminants on Genomic Methylation and DNA Instability

Author(s):Etienne Z. Gnimpieba, Souad Bousseroue, Abalo Chango

ABSTRACT
Environmental contamination of food is a worldwide public health problem. Folate mediated one- carbon metabolism plays an important role in epigenetic regulation of gene expression and mutagenesis. Many contaminants in food cause cancer through epigenetic mechanisms and/or DNA instability i.e. default methylation of uracil to thymine, subsequent to the decrease of 5-methylte- trahydrofolate (5 mTHF) pool in the one-carbon metabolism network. Evaluating consequences of an exposure to food contaminants based on systems biology approaches is a promising alternative field Continue reading

Agile model

ABSTRACT
Software development teams communicate differently by using a variety of communication tools. Successful communication leads to competitive software based on clear and quickly delivered re-quirements, as well as smoothness in bug reporting and explanation. Agile and Waterfall software development approaches have both addressed the importance of communication for their process. However, neither Agile nor Waterfall has guaranteed communication effectiveness during their development lifecycle. In this study we highlight the main differences between Agile and Waterfall Continue reading

Measuring the Severity of a Banking Crisis and Finding Its Associated Factors: How Are the Factors Different for Simple and Severe Banking Crises?

Author(s):Anichul Hoque Khan, Hasnat Dewan

ABSTRACT
This study measures the severity of a banking crisis by using its duration and the cost. Using this new methodology, we find that the factors associated with a severe banking crisis are not quite the same as those associated with a simple banking crisis. An ordered logit model and a large panel data set were used for this study. One of our major findings is that there exists a four-year time lag between an economic boom, or financial system liberalization, and the occurrence of a severe banking crisis in a country. This indicates that banking problems start much earlier than the time when Continue reading

Using Time Series of Satellite Images to Detect Vegetation Cover Change in Dhaka City

Author(s):Sami Al Jaber, Amit Kumar Ghosh, Mallik Sezan Mahmud

ABSTRACT
The spatial land cover pattern of Dhaka city is restlessly altering as it has highest growing rates among megacities. Due to high urbanization rates, land use is changing from natural to man-made along with resource extractions that accelerate the land cover changes. This study has evidently given the glimpse of the raising concern by assessing the loss of vegetation coverage of Dhaka Metropolitan Area using multi-temporal Landsat imageries. 20 years satellite data have been used to detect the vegetation Continue reading

inlay was later placed in the subject’s mouth.

Cell phone and personal computer use has increased considerably in recent years, particularly in developed countries. These devices have facilitated communication on a global scale. However, there have been a number of reports of health problems related to the electromagnetic waves emitted by such electronic devices. A long list of both general and severe symptoms, including headaches, fatigue, tinnitus, dizziness, memory loss, irregular heartbeat and whole-body skin le-sions, have been Continue reading

Response to “A plague of Brazilian science: second class articles”

The Brasilian weekly news magazine VEJA (“look at it”) published in São Paulo and distributed throughout the country [1] published an article titled “Uma praga da ciência brasileira: os artigos de segunda” similar to: “A plague of Brazilian science: second class articles” on 6th December 2014. Author: Fernanda Allegretti (reporter at VEJA [2]). SCIRP is also mentioned in one paragraph of this long article. SCIRP was alarmed about this article thanks to one of its Brazilian authors who points out in his e-mail dated 2014-12-10: “many Brazilians are submitting articles to your journals based on an evaluation from an agency called CAPES … saying that … your journals are okay.” The VEJA article is this:

Performance of Suboptimal Controllers for Affine-Quadratic Problems

Author(s): Ankita Sharma, A. J. Shaiju

ABSTRACT
In this article, affine-quadratic control problems are studied. Error bounds are derived for the difference between the performance indices corresponding to the optimal and a class of suboptimal controls. In particular, it is shown that the performance of these suboptimal controls is close to that of the optimal control whenever the error in estimating the costate initial condition is small.

1. Introduction
One of the most active areas in control theory is optimal control and methods to find them [1]-[3]. It has a wide range Continue reading

On a splendid star night, when you look at the sky, facing bling bling stars, you will remember many ancient myths. The modern scientific discovery proves that the Earth where we are is in the Milky Way. In a deep universe, there are many galaxies, like Milky Way. Astro-observation finds that most of galaxies outside the Milky Way show a spiral shape, known as spiral galaxy.

On March 17, 2014, Science and Technology Daily has reported a scientific news, “the obesity or flat of the galaxy depends on the rotational speed.” The report has pointed out, “some spiral galaxies are fat and uplift, while other spiral galaxies are flat discs. The galaxy seems so different and Continue reading
