Abstract: Super resolution is a process where a high resolution image can be reconstructed from a set of blurred and noisy low resolution images which are at a specific pixel shift from each other. Each sub-pixel shifted low resolution image contains some new information about the scene and super resolution is to combine these to give a higher resolution image. Frame alignment is very much important concept in super resolution process which is achieved by image registration. Using image registration, the super resolution algorithm presented here places two adjacent frames together into a high resolution grid. In this paper the LR images are assumed to be half-pixel shifted. This paper aims at implementing the super-resolution algorithm using wavelet transform to interpolate the missing pixels in the grid to create one high-resolution image. Different wavelets are experimented to determine which one works best. The result is evaluated in terms of MSE, PSNR and SNR. By achieving super resolution in the wavelet domain, a more computationally efficient overall system can be developed.

Domestic Violence against Elderly People: A Case Study of India  [PDF]
Punita Govil, Swati Gupta
Advances in Aging Research (AAR) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/aar.2016.55011
The present demographic scenario of the country shows the rising trend of adult population. According to census report 2011, there are 60.3% people belonging to 15 to 59 years of age group and the percentage of people above 60+ age is 8.6%. Our country fails to provide due respect, care, affection, security and health related facilities, which elderly people utmost require. A number of cases of adult abuses are reported in news papers as these people are easy victims of violence and criminal activities. The society comes to know about only those problems, which are reported, the innumerable cases of disrespect and neglect are not given any consideration. The situation becomes all the more worst when perpetrators are very near relatives and in some cases blood relatives also. This growing insensitiveness is a threat to our society. Sincere efforts are needed to tackle this alarming problem. The present paper describes the available data [1]-[3] on the old people, their dependence ratio, the problems being faced by them and suggestive measures to provide social and emotional security to them.
Mathematical Modeling of Exudative Retinal Detachment  [PDF]
Ram Avtar, Swati Srivastava
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/am.2017.81005
Abstract: A simple mathematical model for the exudative retinal detachment has been developed. The model takes into consideration a typical retinal blister with unknown shape and the fluid flow caused by its accumulation in the subretinal space through the fluid-leakage into the subretinal space from the choriocapillar is across the outer blood-retina barrier described by Darcy’s law. The theory of bending beams is applied to model the deformation of the retinal blister. The boundary value problem describing the retinal deformation in dimensionless form is solved using the perturbation method. The computational results for the retinal deformation are presented through graphs to illustrate the sensitivity of the deformation to the elastic modulus, the moment of inertia and intraocular pressure and discussed.
Levels of Selected Heavy Metals in Food Packaging Papers and Paperboards Used in India  [PDF]
Swati Sood, Chhaya Sharma
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2019.103021
Abstract: In the present study, the varieties of papers and paperboards (PPBs) used in India for food packaging were qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed for the heavy metal contamination with the help of ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry). Total 10 different types of food packaging PPBs were procured from local market and analyzed for 14 heavy metals (Al, As, B, Ba, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Te, Ti and V). Quantities of heavy metals in the samples were compared with permitted values published by the European Council. Heavy metals like Al, As, Ba, Cr, Co, Ni, Pb and V were observed in more than the permitted concentration in some of the samples. Heavy metals toxicity in food packaging material is a serious concern as the edible items get exposed to these metals and also generate volatile odorous compounds which considerably impact the quality of food and affect consumer's health.
Bacteria in Indian Food Packaging Papers and Paperboards with Various Contents of Pulp Fiber  [PDF]
Swati Sood, Chhaya Sharma
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2019.104027
Abstract: The food packaging industry generally uses papers and paperboards (PPBs) especially for disposable products. According to the Framework Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 of the European Union, no transfer of contamination should occur from food packaging material to the food items. The aim of this study was to determine the presence, numbers, source and different kinds of bacteria present in food packaging PPBs with various contents of pulp fiber. The samples were randomly collected from popular confectioners and fast food restaurants in Saharanpur, India. The results indicated the presence of bacteria in all the samples, ranging from 1.3 × 102 to 6.1 × 103 cfu/g. Most of the samples contained bacteria in more than the permitted concentration of 2.5 × 102 cfu/g as set by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The detected bacteria were from genera Bacillacea, Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas. According to the FDA declaration, pathogenic bacteria such as B. cereus and S. aureus have been associated with food borne diseases (FBD). Some contaminants in food packaging PPBs were found to be B. subtilis and P. aeroginosa, which produce enzymes like peroxidases and lipoxygenases that are odor generating enzymes.
The Changing of the Gods: Religion, Religious Transformation and the Indian Immigrant Experience  [PDF]
Thomas W. Segady, Swati Shirwadkar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2012.24055
Abstract: The Durkheimian notion that there is a close correspondence between the type of religion within a society and the structure of the society itself is now taken to be nearly axiomatic. As societies become increasingly dynamic and fragmented, however, the nexus between religion and society becomes far more complex. With globalization and widespread movements of populations struggling to maintain their identities within the contexts of both the old and new societies, changes of religion—including religious affiliation and religiosity—are inevitable. Cultural and social aspects of these changes are explored with reference to Indians migrating to the United States.
Will Employment Effect Gold Buying? An Indian Perspective  [PDF]
Swati Shrikant Godbole, Gita Sashidharan
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2019.95079
Abstract: In India, the uniqueness of gold has been widely discussed since ages. The Indian Government has led several initiatives to curb gold consumption in order to restrict its impact on trade deficit and forex reserves. However, their attempts have been quite futile. In light of the above and combined with the high demand for gold in the form of jewelry, this research paper was crafted. This paper attempts to study the factors of gold buying of retail consumers and also analyze the impact of reference groups on gold buying. The central focus of the study being retail consumers, data were collected from a sample of 600 retail consumers. Several factors were identified through factor analysis. The validity and reliability of factor analysis was confirmed by KMO (0.903) and Bartlet tests (Sig. 0.000). ANOVA was performed to ascertain the impact of reference groups/employment function on the identified factors. The ANOVA results indicated that the proposed hypothesis was observed to be statistically significant for some of the identified factors. Results of Tukey Post Hoc Test highlighted pairing of other function (retired) of employment with either Marketing or IT giving statistically significant different means. For several years, gold has been an area of secondary research both in the foreign and Indian context. However in the light of gold buying’s (Jewelry) negative impact on India’s trade deficit and various initiatives of the government, this research has relevance in the Indian context. More so since in the existing era, India is a growing economy and globalization and technology has made it easy and possible to buy or invest in the paper form of gold instead of the physical form.
Hepatitis B prophylaxis practice among medical students : An overview
Chouhan Swati
Hepatitis B Annual , 2008,
Abstract: Healthcare personnel, especially medical students, represent a high risk population for Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection. Hepatitis B is the most important infectious occupational hazard which Indian medical students and healthcare workers (HCWs) encounter. The medical students and HCWs all over the world do not practice universal precautions on a routine basis and there exists the widely prevalent problem of under reporting of percutaneous and mucocutaneous exposures and a lack of awareness about the disease transmission, its consequences and the importance of adhering to universal precautions at all times. This further compounds the issue of safety of student HCWs. This article highlights the dismal scenario vis- -vis awareness about these risks and HBV prophylaxis amongst medical students from a student′s perspective and suggests how to tackle the situation to protect the unfortunate medical students from an unwarranted predicament.
Influence of Culture on Service Recovery Expectations
Swati Sharma
Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The positive effects of service recovery and customer satisfaction are welldocumented in literature.(Spreng, Harrell, and Mackoy 1995, Hess 2003, McCole,Patrick,2004, Maxham III 2001; Swanson and Kelley 2001).However researchers arguethat a satisfactory recovery varies according to a range of relational factors likeconsumers' relational recovery expectations(Anderson and Sullivan 1993).The questionremains as to why one or more recovery initiatives (e.g., apology, empathy,compensation, replacement, process control, timeliness, assurance of no recurrence) areindispensable in one situation but pointless in another
