Arsalan Mujahid Ghouri
International Journal of Marketing Practices , 2013,
Abstract: The role of marketing capabilities in driving superior firm performance has long been of interest of marketing scholars. This study initiated to discover the relationship of marketing capabilities with firm performance in the SMEs of Pakistan. The survey questionnaire was adopted from the previous researches. The initial data was collected from 36 owners/ managers of the SMEs firms in Karachi, Pakistan for pilot testing. All assumptions were authenticated before applied multiple regression to find the variance in firm performance by applying (six) marketing capabilities variables. The findings of the multiple regression suggested that marketing research, pricing, service development, distribution, communication, and marketing management can account for 30.8 percent of the variance in firm performance. It was also confirmed that pricing, distribution, and communication are positively significant with firm performance, while marketing research, service development, and marketing management linked non significant with firm performance.

Abstract: Teachers are the pillars of any country economy and society. Teachers role in students' life and their career are phenomenon, educational institutes must take care of those aspect which can improve or diminish the teacher performance. Student satisfaction runs the success meter of the educational institute smoothly and maintain the good will in market and society, as satisfied student perform well above the rest in every aspect of life. For the present study students satisfaction was investigated by relationship of teacher power motivation, empowerment and burnout. The results showed that power motivation is negatively related to burnout, empowerment has a positive relationship with student satisfaction and burnout has a negative relationship with student satisfaction.

Decomposition of Pakistan’s Export Growth to APEC Markets  [PDF]
Shahida Wizarat, Arsalan Ahmed
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2015.33029
Abstract: We have tried to explore the major determinants of Pakistan’s exports to APEC Markets using the Constant Market Share (CMS) analysis for the period 2003 to 2012. The CMS technique decomposes the impact emanating from the world trade effect, the commodity composition effect, the market distribution effect and the competitiveness effect. We also suggest that policies can increase exports thus increasing foreign exchange earnings for the economy.
A New Weighted Rayleigh Distribution: Properties and Applications on Lifetime Time Data  [PDF]
Shakila Bashir, Mujahid Rasul
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2018.83041

Rayleigh distribution (RD) has wide applications in many real life situations especially life testing, reliability analysis, medicines etc. In this paper a new weighted Rayleigh distribution named area-biased Rayleigh distribution (ARD) is introduced. Some mathematical properties of the (ARD) including cumulative distribution function, moments, skewness, kurtosis, median, mode, entropy, reliability measures as survival function and hazard function have been derived. Parameter of the ARD is estimated by method of moments (MOM), maximum likelihood (ML), and Bayesian. Properties of the estimators are developed. It is proved that the ML estimator attains the Cramer Rao lower bound. Applications of the ARD provided for some life time data sets. Kolmogorov Smirnov (K-S) test statistics is applied to check the good fit of the model.

A Study on produced radioactive wastes in nuclear medicine
Arsalan Mohammadi
Iranian Journal of Nuclear Medicine , 2010,
Abstract: Today the radioactive wastes produced in different sections nuclear medicine disciplines forms a significant part of the produced nuclear wastes. The issue of nuclear wastes production has been considered by the mankind since the discovery of radioactive materials. However, certain consideration on the same has been after discovering the fission process and the increasing application of radio-isotopes in the agricultural, industrial, research sections as well as the mankind"'s extensive and increasing utilization of the radio-pharmacy in various medical disciplines; so that today the increasing utilization orientation of the nuclear techniques for the diseases diagnosis and treatment has caused that the level of the produced radioactive wastes in such section to be subjected to an ascending trend. Whereas due to the radioactivity the radioactive wastes produced in the nuclear medicine are hazardous for both the man"'s life and the environment, thus the issue of being well introduced to and having enough cognition with respect to such wastes and eventually the categorization, separation, and their safe disposal operations are mandatory and requires special consideration for such issue. Due to the importance of the issue, it has been tried in this article that a certain significance and consideration to such wastes is studied, apart from introduction and presentation of the categories and mentioning the various types of the radioactive wastes produced in the field of nuclear medicine.
Portfolio Risk and Dependence Modeling
Arsalan Azamighaimasi
International Journal of Financial Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/ijfr.v4n1p151
Abstract: This paper has considered portfolio credit risk with a focus on two approaches, the factor model, and copula model. We have reviewed two models with emphasis on the joint default probably. The copula function describes the dependence structure of a multivariate random variable, in this paper, it used as a practical to simulation of generate portfolio with different copula, and we only used Gaussian and t–copula case. We generated portfolio default distributions and studied the sensitivity of commonly used risk measures with respect to the approach in modeling the dependence structure of the portfolio.
The Structural Approach and Default Risk
Arsalan Azamighaimasi
International Journal of Financial Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/ijfr.v4n1p66
Abstract: This paper studied and developed credit risk models. Specifically, it focuses on the Merton model, its extensions model, and the way to survey new structural approach. Firstly, this paper has described the Merton model. And then, it has reviewed the first-passage model with more focus on default point. Finally, we considered the new structural approach which stressed that if the firm’s value passes the threshold level b, the firm’s value will continues unless the value process crosses and spends an exogenous quantity of time b below. We have used the Yildiray Yildirim model and ruin probability.
An Integrated Approach to Hydrographic Surveying of Large Reservoirs—Application to Tarbela Reservoir in Pakistan  [PDF]
Sarfraz Munir, Muhammad Armaghan, Arsalan Babrus
Open Journal of Modern Hydrology (OJMH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojmh.2014.44015
Abstract: Hydrographic surveying in reservoirs is a key activity in order to collect data for a variety of purposes like estimation of storage capacity, rate and pattern of sediment deposition, movement of underwater sediment delta and reservoir routing, etc. These parameters play a pivotal role in any planning, management and operation activity of the reservoirs. Traditional approaches to perform hydrographic surveying in Indus Basin are time consuming, laborious, comparatively inaccurate and costly. As water resources are under immense pressure due to a variety of factors, such inefficient methods are not acceptable for efficient water management. In this study, an integrated approach for hydrographic surveying is introduced and evaluated in terms of its efficiency in comparison with the traditional methods of hydrographic surveying. The approach develops an integrated environment of hydrographic surveying comprising human, hardware and software. The process of surveying starts from in-house planning using specialized geo-spatial softwares. Then, on site a combination of computer hardware, echosounder, differential global positioning system (DGPS), survey vessel and survey crew is made. Post-processing is performed after conducting a survey in order to improve quality of data by filtering errors and producing the end product like reservoir underwater terrain, development of reservoir stage-area and stage-storage relationships, etc. The study was applied to Tarbela Reservoir, Pakistan.

Advances in Pure Mathematics (APM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/apm.2013.35070

This paper studies the global behavior defocusing nonlinear Schrodinger equation in dimension d = 2, and we will discuss the case \"\". This means that the solutions \"\", and called critical solution. We show that u scatters forward and backward to a free solution and the solution is globally well posed.
