Cosine Modulated Non-Uniform Filter Banks  [PDF]
Jyotsna Ogale, Samrat Ashok
Journal of Signal and Information Processing (JSIP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsip.2011.23024
Abstract: Traditional designs for non-uniform filter bank (NUFB) are usually complex; involve complicated nonlinear optimization with a large number of parameters and lack of linear phase ([LP) property. In this paper, we describe a simple design method for multirate near perfect reconstruction (NPR) cosine modulated filter banks with non-uniform frequency spacing and linear phase property that involves optimization of only single parameter. It is derived from the uniform cosine modulated filter bank (CMFB) by merging some relevant band pass filters. The design procedure and the structure of the uniform CMFB are mostly preserved in the non-uniform implementation. Compared to other design methods our method provides very good design and converges very rapidly but the method is applicable, only if the upper band edge frequency of each non-uniform filter is an integral multiple of the bandwidth of the corresponding band. The design examples are presented to show the superiority of the proposed method over existing one.
Organisational climate from view point of motivation in district hospital, India  [PDF]
Bhaskar Purohit, Ashok Wadhwa
Health (Health) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/health.2012.47063
Abstract: Organisational Climate (OC) has been an important topic of research in Organisational Development. There are several frameworks and approaches to study OC. One such framework focuses on the effect of OC on motivation. Although studying OC from viewpoint of motivetion is an important one, there is very limited research in Indian public health system on assessing OC from the view point of motivation. The present study uses a comprehensive framework that focuses on assessing OC from the view point of motivation in a government district hospital. The overall objective of the study was to assess the OC of a District Hospital (DH) from the view point of motivation. A total of 66 staff (all from the same district hospital) participated in the study that included 12 Class I doctor specialists; 14 Class II doctors and 40 Class III staff The data was collected using a validated instrument called Motivational Analysis of Climate (MAO-C). The instrument included six needs or motives and twelve dimensions of organisational climate that were ranked by individuals according to their perception. Based on the ranks, final scores were calculated that reflected the dominant climate (highest score for a particular motive) and backup climates (second highest score for a particular motive). Also a combination of the two motives, dominant and back up motives or climates indicated a particular OC. According to the study, the dominant climate in the organisation was that for Dependency motive while the backup climate for the organisation was for Control motive. According to the literature, both Dependency and Control motives are dysfunctional climates. A high dependency motive indicates that the overall organisational climate is characterized by no initiatives by the people and the employees always look for approval from their seniors; assistance of others in developing oneself; a need to check with others who are more knowledgeable. Similarly high score for control motive indicates that order is maintained in organisation; indicates display of personal power; a desire to stay informed and an urge to monitor events and to take corrective action when needed. When the two motives are combined, the study indicates a dependency-control climate profile which means that the organisational practices are similar to government offices, where subordinates have no say in decision making and they have to follow the established rules of the organisation. Such organisations have clearly laid communication channels controlled from higher authority indicating typical characteristics of a
Politics of Hunger and Development: A Sociological Review of India’s Developmental Discourse  [PDF]
M. Ashok Kumar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2012.24050
Abstract: This paper attempts to address the problem of hunger from the viewpoint of its social face against the backdrop of fast growing economy of India. Current sad state of affairs in the domain of poverty and hunger are nothing but the cumulative result of what happens in the Indian development planning since Independence, or at least in the name of development planning. This paper sociologically examines three most critical events in the history of Indian development planning, which are introduced to mitigate hunger and poverty, in both urban and rural India. The central focus of this paper is to highlight politics of those development initiatives and liquidation of public planning at the level of implementation, which eventually increased the gap between rich and poor, and left the Indian poor to their own fate. This paper also examines the most significant aspect of delinking power relations from the development discourse of India by providing more room for populist ideas with an aim to gain political mileage by the ruling elite. The present state of affairs with respect to poverty and hunger coupled with low standards of health, literacy and social awareness in India call for serious introspection. This paper, therefore, critically looks at Indian development discourse from the perspective of power relations, both established and emerging, which could alter our views on India and its growth story.

Uma Karjigi, Dayavathi Ashok
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2014.33040
Abstract:

D-Penicillamine is one of the diseases modifying medication used to treat Rheumatoid arthritis and Systemic sclerosis. In this article we have described two interesting cases of Dermatomyositis and Bullous pemphigoid secondary to D-Penicillamine. This article emphasizes the fact that D-Penicillamine remains as one of the effective and well-tolerated medications, however patients need close monitoring while on medication, so that uncommon side effects are recognized and treated promptly.

Lattice Paths and Rogers Identities  [PDF]
Ashok Kumar Agarwal, Megha Goyal
Open Journal of Discrete Mathematics (OJDM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojdm.2011.12011
Abstract: Recently we interpreted five q-series identities of Rogers combinatorially by using partitions with “n +t cop-ies of n” of Agarwal and Andrews (J. Combin. Theory Ser.A, 45(1987), No.1, 40-49). In this paper we use lattice paths of Agarwal and Bressoud (Pacific J. Math. 136(2) (1989), 209-228) to provide new combinatorial interpretations of the same identities. This results in five new 3-way combinatorial identities.
Distribution, Enrichment and Accumulation of Heavy Metals in Soil and Trigonella foenum-graecum L. (Fenugreek) after Fertigation with Paper Mill Effluent  [PDF]
Vinod Kumar,Ashok Kumar Chopra
Open Journal of Metal (OJMetal) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojmetal.2013.32a1002
Abstract: The aim of the study was to investigate distribution, enrichment and accumulation of heavy metals in soil and Trigonella foenum-graecum (var. Pusa Early Bunching) after fertigation with paper mill effluent. Doses of paper mill effluent viz. 5%, 10%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% were used for fertigation of T. foenum-graecum along with bore well water (control). The results revealed that paper mill effluent had significant (P < 0.05) effect on EC, pH, OC, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+, Fe2+, TKN, PO3-4, SO2-4, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn and Zn of the soil in both seasons. Insignificant (P > 0.05) changes in WHC and bulk density of the soil were observed after irrigation with paper mill effluent. The agronomical performance of T. foenum-graecum was increased from 5% to 25% concentration and decreased from 50% to 100% concentration of paper mill effluent as compared to control in both seasons. The heavy metals concentration was increased in T. foenum-graecum from 5% to 100% concentrations of paper mill effluent in both seasons. Biochemical components like crude proteins, crude fiber and crude carbohydrates were found maximum with 25% paper mill effluent in both seasons. The enrichment factor (Ef) of various heavy metals was in order of Cd > Mn > Cr > Cu > Zn > Fe for soil and Mn > Cu > Cr > Cd > Zn > Fe for T. foenum-graecum plants after fertigation with paper mill effluent. Therefore, paper mill effluent can be used as a biofertigant after appropriate dilution to improve yield of T. foenum-graecum.

On a 3-Way Combinatorial Identity  [PDF]
Garima Sood, Ashok Kumar Agarwal
Open Journal of Discrete Mathematics (OJDM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojdm.2014.44012
Abstract: Recently in [1] Goyal and Agarwal interpreted a generalized basic series as a generating function for a colour partition function and a weighted lattice path function. This led to an infinite family of combinatorial identities. Using Frobenius partitions, we in this paper extend the result of [1] and obtain an infinite family of 3-way combinatorial identities. We illustrate by an example that our main result has a potential of yielding Rogers-Ramanujan-MacMahon type identities with convolution property.
Corrosion Behaviour of TiC-Reinforced Hadfield Manganese Austenitic Steel Matrix In-Situ Composites  [PDF]
Ashok Kumar , Srivastava, Karabi Das
Open Journal of Metal (OJMetal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojmetal.2015.52002
Abstract: The corrosion behaviour of Hadfield manganese austenitic steel matrix composite reinforced with the varying amount of TiC and unreinforced Hadfield manganese austenitic steel matrix alloy has been evaluated in 3.5% NaCl aqueous solution with the pH value of 6 by the potentiodynamic polarization curves and linear polarization resistance measurements at a scan rate of 1 mV/s at room temperature (25°C ± 2°C). The corrosion rate of the composites is higher than that of their unreinforced matrix alloy and it increases with the increasing volume fraction of TiC. The poor corrosion resistance of the composites can be attributed to the galvanic effects between the matrix and reinforcement.
