Sadhan Kumar Roy, Dipak Kumar Roy
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2016.713166
Abstract: Medicinal plants are playing an important role to human livelihood. Bangladesh is well recognized of medicinal plants wealth as unique and globally rich. The studies demonstrate about the value of traditional systems of medicine as economically useful plants and possible effects of climate change on medicinal plants. It is true that climate change is causing noticeable effects on life cycles and distribution of the plant species. However, climate change effects on medicinal plants are widely unclear in Bangladesh. At present, a huge number of populations in Bangladesh are directly dependent on the healthcare treatment by medicinal plants that is why it is an emerging concern in Bangladesh. It is a crying need to improve our understanding the effects on medicinal plants by various researches is stressed in the present article. To know the present condition of medicinal plants and effects of climate change on medicinal plants in northern part of Bangladesh an attempt is being taken here. The study also added the optimum use of medicinal plants and their conservation in northern part of Bangladesh.
A Partial Backlogging Inventory Model for Deteriorating Item under Fuzzy Inflation and Discounting over Random Planning Horizon: A Fuzzy Genetic Algorithm Approach
Dipak Kumar Jana,Barun Das,Tapan Kumar Roy
Advances in Operations Research , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/973125
Abstract: An inventory model for deteriorating item is considered in a random planning horizon under inflation and time value money. The model is described in two different environments: random and fuzzy random. The proposed model allows stock-dependent consumption rate and shortages with partial backlogging. In the fuzzy stochastic model, possibility chance constraints are used for defuzzification of imprecise expected total profit. Finally, genetic algorithm (GA) and fuzzy simulation-based genetic algorithm (FSGA) are used to make decisions for the above inventory models. The models are illustrated with some numerical data. Sensitivity analysis on expected profit function is also presented. Scope and Purpose. The traditional inventory model considers the ideal case in which depletion of inventory is caused by a constant demand rate. However, to keep sales higher, the inventory level would need to remain high. Of course, this would also result in higher holding or procurement cost. Also, in many real situations, during a longer-shortage period some of the customers may refuse the management. For instance, for fashionable commodities and high-tech products with short product life cycle, the willingness for a customer to wait for backlogging is diminishing with the length of the waiting time. Most of the classical inventory models did not take into account the effects of inflation and time value of money. But in the past, the economic situation of most of the countries has changed to such an extent due to large-scale inflation and consequent sharp decline in the purchasing power of money. So, it has not been possible to ignore the effects of inflation and time value of money any more. The purpose of this paper is to maximize the expected profit in the random planning horizon. 1. Introduction In the past few decades, many researches have studied an inventory model with constant demand or dynamic demand (cf. M. K. Maiti and M. Maiti [1], Taleizadeh et al. [2], Jana et al. [3], and others). Moreover, in a competitive situation attractive display of units in the showroom is an important factor. Levin et al. [4] noted that at times the presence of inventory has a motivational effect on the people around it. It is a common belief that large piles of goods displayed in a supermarket will lead the customer to buy more. Thus, many business people use showrooms and the attractive display of units in the showroom to influence the customers. Roy et al. [5] and Maiti [6] have developed an inventory model with stock-dependent demand. In most of the earlier inventory models,

Abstract: Corresponding to chance constraints, real-life possibility, necessity, and credibility measures on intuitionistic fuzzy set are defined. For the first time the mathematical and graphical representations of different types of measures in trapezoidal intuitionistic fuzzy environment are defined in this paper. We have developed intuitionistic fuzzy chance constraints model (CCM) based on possibility and necessity measures. We have also proposed a new method for solving an intuitionistic fuzzy CCM using chance operators. To validate the proposed method, we have discussed three different approaches to solve the intuitionistic fuzzy linear programming (IFLPP) using possibility, necessity and credibility measures. Numerical and graphical representations of optimal solutions of the given example at different possibility and necessity, levels have been discussed. 1. Introduction In the real world some data often provide imprecision and vagueness at certain level. Such vagueness has been represented through fuzzy sets. Zadeh [1] first introduced the fuzzy sets. The perception of intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) can be analysed as an unconventional approach to define a fuzzy set where available information is not adequate for the definition of an imprecise concept by means of a usual fuzzy set. This IFS was first introduced by Atanassov [2]. Many researchers have shown their interest in the study of intuitionistic fuzzy sets/numbers [3–7]. Fuzzy sets are defined by the membership function in all its entirety (c.f. Pramanik et al. [8, 9]), but IFS is characterized by a membership function and a nonmembership function so that the sum of both values lies between zero and one [10]. Esmailzadeh and Esmailzadeh [11] provided new distance between triangular intuitionistic fuzzy numbers. Recently, the IFN has also found its application in fuzzy optimization. Angelov [12] proposed the optimization in an intuitionistic fuzzy environment. Dubey and Mehra [13] solved linear programming with triangular intuitionistic fuzzy number. Parvathi and Malathi [14] developed intuitionistic fuzzy simplex method. Hussain and Kumar [15] and Nagoor Gani and Abbas [16] proposed a method for solving intuitionistic fuzzy transportation problem. Ye [17] discussed expected value method for intuitionistic trapezoidal fuzzy multicriteria decision-making problems. Wan and Dong [18] used possibility degree method for interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy for decision making. Possibility, necessity, and credibility measures have a significant role in fuzzy and intuitionistic fuzzy optimization. Buckley
A Multiobjective Multi-Item Inventory Control Problem in Fuzzy-Rough Environment Using Soft Computing Techniques
Dipak Kumar Jana,K. Maity,M. Maiti,T. K. Roy
Advances in Decision Sciences , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/617989
Abstract: The optimal production and advertising policies for an inventory control system of multi-item multiobjective problem under a single management are formulated as an optimal control problem with resource constraints under inflation and discounting in fuzzy rough (Fu-Ro) environment. The objectives and constraints in Fu-Ro are made deterministic using fuzzy rough expected values method (EVM). Here, the production and advertisement rates are unknown and considered as control (decision) variables. The production, advertisement, and demand rates are functions of time t. Maximization of the total proceed from perfect and imperfect units and minimization of the total cost consisting of production, holding, and advertisement costs are formulated as optimal control problems and solved directly using multiobjective genetic algorithm (MOGA). In another method for solution, membership functions of the objectives are derived and the multi-objective problems are transformed to a single objective by the convex combination of the membership functions and then the problem is solved by generalized reduced gradient (GRG) method. Finally, numerical experiment and graphical representation are provided to illustrate the system. 1. Introduction From financial standpoint, an inventory represents a capital investment and a lot of researchers’ works have been done since the Second World War. Most of the classical inventory models did not take into account the effects of inflation and time value of money. This has happened mostly because of the belief that inflation and time value of money will not influence the cost and price components (i.e., the inventory policy) to any significant degree. But, during last few decades, due to high inflation and consequent sharp decline in the purchasing power of money in the developing countries like Brazil, Argentina, India, Bangladesh, and so forth, the financial situation has been changed and so it is not possible to ignore the effect of inflation and time value of money any further. Following Buzacott [1], Misra [2] extended his approaches to different inventory models with finite replenishment, shortages, and so forth, by considering the time value of money, different inflation rates for the costs. Also Lo et al. [3] developed an integrated production-inventory model with a varying rate of deterioration under imperfect production process, partial backordering, and inflation. Again, some researchers (cf. Cho [4] and others) have assumed depreciation rate of sales as a function of time, . This assumption is supported by a general fact that,
A Laminar Flow Model for Mucous Gel Transport in a Cough Machine Simulating Trachea: Effect of Surfactant as a Sol Phase Layer  [PDF]

Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2013.34040

In this paper, a planar three layer quasisteady laminar flow model is proposed in a cough machine which simulates mucous gel transport in model trachea due to mild forced expiration. The flow is governed by the time dependent pressure gradient generated in trachea due to mild forced expiration. Mucous gel is represented by a viscoelastic Voigt element whereas sol phase fluid and air are considered as Newtonian fluids. For fixed airflow rate, it is shown that when the viscosity of mucous gel is small, mucous gel transport decreases as the elastic modulus increases. However, elastic modulus has negligible effect on large gel viscosity. It is also shown that for fixed airflow rate and fixed airway dimension, mucous gel transport increases with the thickness of sol phase fluid and this increase is further enhanced as the viscosity of sol phase fluid decreases. The effect of surfactant is studied by considering sol phase as surfactant layer which causes slip at the wall and interface of sol phase and mucous gel. It is found that in the presence of surfactant mucous gel transport is enhanced.

Mass deposition inside the artery wall may play a significant role in the development of the disease atherosclerosis. Locally elevated concentrations of LDL in the arterial wall are considered to be the initiator of atherosclerotic plaque formation. In this study, an attempt has been made to study initially the effect of fluid dynamic parameters on the disease and finally proposed a concept, from the idea of basic flow characteristics in constricted arteries, for the assessment of mass deposition in the arterial wall to some extent for rectangular as well as half circular stenosed models. Reynolds numbers are chosen as 100, 200, 300 and 400 and percentage of restrictions as 30%, 50%, 70% and 90% respectively. The governing Navier-Stokes and continuity equations are solved in the artery lumen with the commercial CFD code ANSYS 12.1. The pressure-velocity coupling equations are solved by SIMPLE (Semi-Implicit Method for Pressure-Linked Equations) algorithm. The studies on pressure drop at stenosis zone and flow separation zone reveal that the effect of percentage of restriction is more dominant than Reynolds number on the progression of the disease, atherosclerosis for any shaped restriction. The mass deposition results of rectangular and half circular stenotic models motivate to conclude that the effect of percentage of restriction is more prone to the disease than that of Reynolds number. Half circular stenotic shape insists for the less chance of mass deposition in the arterial wall compared to rectangular shaped restriction.

Saxena Sandeep,Kumar Dipak
Indian Journal of Ophthalmology , 2007,
Abstract: Purpose: A retrospective tertiary care center-based study was undertaken to evaluate the visual outcome in Eales′ disease, based on a new classification system, for the first time. Materials and Methods: One hundred and fifty-nine consecutive cases of Eales′ disease were included. All the eyes were staged according to the new classification: Stage 1: periphlebitis of small (1a) and large (1b) caliber vessels with superficial retinal hemorrhages; Stage 2a: capillary non-perfusion, 2b: neovascularization elsewhere/of the disc; Stage 3a: fibrovascular proliferation, 3b: vitreous hemorrhage; Stage 4a: traction/combined rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and 4b: rubeosis iridis, neovascular glaucoma, complicated cataract and optic atrophy. Visual acuity was graded as: Grade I 20/20 or better; Grade II 20/30 to 20/40; Grade III 20/60 to 20/120 and Grade IV 20/200 or worse. All the cases were managed by medical therapy, photocoagulation and/or vitreoretinal surgery. Visual acuity was converted into decimal scale, denoting 20/20=1 and 20/800=0.01. Paired t-test / Wilcoxon signed-rank tests were used for statistical analysis. Results: Vitreous hemorrhage was the commonest presenting feature (49.32%). Cases with Stages 1 to 3 and 4a and 4b achieved final visual acuity ranging from 20/15 to 20/40; 20/80 to 20/400 and 20/200 to 20/400, respectively. Statistically significant improvement in visual acuities was observed in all the stages of the disease except Stages 1a and 4b. Conclusion: Significant improvement in visual acuities was observed in the majority of stages of Eales′ disease following treatment. This study adds further to the little available evidences of treatment effects in literature and may have effect on patient care and health policy in Eales′ disease.

Compromised Rat Testicular Antioxidant Defence System by Hypothyroidism before Puberty
Dipak K. Sahoo,Anita Roy
International Journal of Endocrinology , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/637825
Abstract: Altered thyroid function during early stages of development is known to affect adversely testicular growth, physiology, and antioxidant defence status at adulthood. The objective of the present study is to investigate the modulation of antioxidant defence status in neonatal persistent hypothyroid rats before their sexual maturation and also to identify the specific testicular cell populations vulnerable to degeneration during neonatal hypothyroidism in immature rats. Hypothyroidism was induced in neonates by feeding the lactating mother with 0.05% 6-n-propyl-2-thiouracil (PTU) through the drinking water. From the day of parturition till weaning (25 day postpartum), the pups received PTU through mother's milk (or) drinking water and then directly from drinking water containing PTU for the remaining period of experimentation. On the 31st day postpartum, the animals were sacrificed for the study. An altered antioxidant defence system marked by elevated SOD, CAT, and GR activities, with decreased GPx and GST activities were observed along with increased protein carbonylation, disturbed redox status in hypothyroid immature rat testis. This compromised testicular antioxidant status might have contributed to poor growth and development by affecting the spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis in rats before puberty as indicated by reduced germ cell number, complete absence of round spermatids, decreased seminiferous tubule diameter, and decreased testosterone level.
