A. Bouchemella,A. Bibi
Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: A statistical inference for random coefficient first-order autoregressive model $[RCAR(1)]$ was investigated by P.M. ROBINSON (1978) in which the coefficients varying over individuals. In this paper we attempt to generalize this result to random coefficient autoregressive model of order $p$ $[RCAR(p)]$. The stationarity condition will derived for this model.

Abstract: Crop growth and yield varies among locations due to differences in environmental parameters, such as temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation and vapor pressure deficit. Previous research has shown that increasing vapor pressure deficit has a negative effect on radiation use efficiency of many crops. In this study, the radiation use efficiency of cot-ton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) grown in two contrasting production environments, Arkansas and California, was evaluated for two years, in 2006 and 2007. Temperature, relative humidity, vapor pressure deficit and photosyntheti-cally active radiation were recorded at both locations. Although the crop in California accumulated more dry matter during the period of the study, the radiation use efficiency was found to be lower compared to Arkansas. Radiation use efficiency for the Arkansas and California locations was estimated at 2.060 and 1.518 g?MJ–1 of intercepted photosynthetically active radiation, respectively. The higher productivity observed in California can be attributed to larger amounts of incident and intercepted radiation in this location. Radiation use efficiency of cotton was estimated to decrease with increasing vapor pressure deficit by a slope of –0.47 g?MJ–1?kPa–1.

Mirjana Novakovi?,Maja Popovi?,Nata?a Bibi
Processing and Application of Ceramics , 2011,
Abstract: This paper presents a study of microstructural changes induced in CrN layers by irradiation with 120 keV argon ions. The layers were deposited on (100) Si wafers, at different nitrogen partial pressures (2×10^-4, 3.5×10^-4 and 5×10^-4 mbar), to a total thickness of 260–280 nm. During deposition the substrates were held at 150°C. After deposition the samples were irradiated with argon ions to the fluences of 1×10^15 and 1×10^16 ions/cm2, under the vacuum of 7×10^-6 mbar. Characterisation of the samples structure and morphology were performed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy (XTEM), and the concentration profiles were determined by Rutheford backscattering (RBS) spectrometry. It was found that the layer composition strongly depends on the nitrogen partial pressure during deposition. A pure stoichiometric CrN phase was achieved for the highest nitrogen partial pressure (5×10^-4 mbar). Argon ions irradiation induces microstructural changes in the CrN layers such as variation of the lattice constants, micro-strain and mean grain size.

International Journal of Mathematics and Soft Computing , 2011,
Abstract: A subset S of V is called a dominating set in G if every vertex in V-S is adjacent to at least one vertex in S. A Dominating set is said to be two dominating set if every vertex in V-S is adjacent to atleast two vertices in S. The minimum cardinality taken over all, the minimal two dominating set is called two domination number and is denoted by γ2 (G). The minimum number of colors required to colour all the vertices such that adjacent vertices do not receive the same colour is the chromatic number χ (G). In [6], it was proved that sum of two domination number and chromatic number is equals to 2n-5 and 2n-6. In this paper, we characterize all graphs whose sum of two domination number and chromatic number is 2n-7.
On using Multiple Quality Link Metrics with Destination Sequenced Distance Vector Protocol for Wireless Multi-Hop Networks
N. Javaid,A. Bibi,Z. A. Khan,K. Djouani
Computer Science , 2012,
Abstract: In this paper, we compare and analyze performance of five quality link metrics forWireless Multi-hop Networks (WMhNs). The metrics are based on loss probability measurements; ETX, ETT, InvETX, ML and MD, in a distance vector routing protocol; DSDV. Among these selected metrics, we have implemented ML, MD, InvETX and ETT in DSDV which are previously implemented with different protocols; ML, MD, InvETX are implemented with OLSR, while ETT is implemented in MR-LQSR. For our comparison, we have selected Throughput, Normalized Routing Load (NRL) and End-to-End Delay (E2ED) as performance parameters. Finally, we deduce that InvETX due to low computational burden and link asymmetry measurement outperforms among all metrics.
Structural changes induced by argon ion irradiation in TiN thin films
Maja Popovi?,Mirjana Novakovi?,Zlatko Rako?evi?,Nata?a Bibi
Processing and Application of Ceramics , 2011,
Abstract: In this work, the effects of 120 keV Ar+ ion implantation on the structural properties of TiN thin films were investigated. TiN layers were deposited by d.c. reactive sputtering on Si(100) wafers at room temperature or at 150°C. The thickness of TiN layers was ~240 nm. After deposition the samples were irradiated with 120 keV argon ions to the fluencies of 1×10^15 and 1×10^16 ions/cm2. Structural characterisation was performed with Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy (RBS), cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy (XTEM), grazing angle X-ray diffraction (XRD) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). It was found that the argon ion irradiation induced the changes in the lattice constant, mean grain size, micro-strain and surface morphology of the TiN layers. The observed micro-structural changes are due to the formation of the high density damage region in the TiN thin film structure.

Abazovi? Nadica,Mirenghi Luciana,Jankovi? Ivana,Bibi? Nata?a
Nanoscale Research Letters , 2009,
Abstract: Titanium dioxide nanopowders doped with different amounts of Fe ions were prepared by coprecipitation method. Obtained materials were characterized by structural (XRD), morphological (TEM and SEM), optical (UV/vis reflection and photoluminescence, and Raman), and analytical techniques (XPS and ICP-OES). XRD analysis revealed rutile crystalline phase for doped and undoped titanium dioxide obtained in the same manner. Diameter of the particles was 5–7 nm. The presence of iron ions was confirmed by XPS and ICP-OES. Doping process moved absorption threshold of TiO2into visible spectrum range. Photocatalytic activity was also checked. Doped nanopowders showed normal and up-converted photoluminescence.
Transport of cosmic-ray protons in intermittent heliospheric turbulence: model and simulations
Fathallah Alouani-Bibi,Jakobus A. le Roux
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1088/0004-637X/781/2/93
Abstract: The transport of charged energetic particles in the presence of strong intermittent heliospheric turbulence is computationally analyzed based on known properties of the interplanetary magnetic field and solar wind plasma at 1 Astronomical Unit (AU). The turbulence is assumed to be static, composite, and quasi-three-dimensional with a varying energy distribution between a one-dimensional Alfv\'enic (slab) and a structured two-dimensional component. The spatial fluctuations of the turbulent magnetic field are modeled either as homogeneous with a Gaussian probability distribution function (PDF), or as intermittent on large and small scales with a q-Gaussian PDF. Simulations showed that energetic particle diffusion coefficients both parallel and perpendicular to the background magnetic field are significantly affected by intermittency in the turbulence. This effect is especially strong for parallel transport where for large-scale intermittency results show an extended phase of subdiffusive parallel transport during which cross-field transport diffusion dominates. The effects of intermittency are found to depend on particle rigidity and the fraction of slab energy in the turbulence, yielding a perpendicular to parallel mean free path ratio close to 1 for large-scale intermittency. Investigation of higher order transport moments (kurtosis) indicates that non-Gaussian statistical properties of the intermittent turbulent magnetic field are present in the parallel transport, especially for low rigidity particles at all times.
Modeling Routing Overhead Generated by Wireless Proactive Routing Protocols

Computer Science , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper, we present a detailed framework consisting of modeling of routing overhead generated by three widely used proactive routing protocols; Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV), Fish-eye State Routing (FSR) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR). The questions like, how these protocols differ from each other on the basis of implementing different routing strategies, how neighbor estimation errors affect broadcast of route requests, how reduction of broadcast overhead achieves bandwidth, how to cope with the problem of mobility and density, etc, are attempted to respond. In all of the above mentioned situations, routing overhead and delay generated by the chosen protocols can exactly be calculated from our modeled equations. Finally, we analyze the performance of selected routing protocols using our proposed framework in NS-2 by considering different performance parameters; Route REQuest (RREQ) packet generation, End-to-End Delay (E2ED) and Normalized Routing Load (NRL) with respect to varying rates of mobility and density of nodes in the underlying wireless network.
Modeling Routing Overhead Generated by Wireless Reactive Routing Protocols
Nadeem Javaid,Ayesha Bibi,Akmal Javaid,Shahzad A. Malik
Computer Science , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper, we have modeled the routing over- head generated by three reactive routing protocols; Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and DYnamic MANET On-deman (DYMO). Routing performed by reactive protocols consists of two phases; route discovery and route maintenance. Total cost paid by a protocol for efficient routing is sum of the cost paid in the form of energy consumed and time spent. These protocols majorly focus on the optimization performed by expanding ring search algorithm to control the flooding generated by the mechanism of blind flooding. So, we have modeled the energy consumed and time spent per packet both for route discovery and route maintenance. The proposed framework is evaluated in NS-2 to compare performance of the chosen routing protocols.
