Abstract:
The primary goal of this research was to ascertain which risk factors could serve as the most precise predictors of violent behaviour among elementary and high-school students. The research was conducted on a sample of 1209 students, between thirteen and seventeen years old, in five cantons of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The risk factors assessment was done by means of SAVRY (Structured Assessment of Violence Risk in Youth), a tool used for gauging the levels of risk factors. With the help of the SPSS 12.0 Statistical Procedures Companion, the collected data was processed by employing regression analysis. The results indicate that the onset of violent behaviour, academic success, inability to concentrate, alcohol abuse, history of domestic violence, as well as parental separation, are the main predictors of violent behaviour among the aforementioned categoryof students. These results form a solid foundation for future planning of treatments and activities with a goal to prevent such behaviour.

Abstract:
The central question that Stephen Cohen grapples with in his book, The Idea of Pakistan, is what is Pakistan? Is it a ‘rogue state’, ‘a delinquent nation’, ‘Taliban East’ a ‘failing state’ or just ‘misunderstood but an effective US ally’ (p. 2)? To probe beyond these descriptions of Pakistan, Cohen has two purposes in mind. First, he wants to demonstrate why Indian Muslims felt the need for a separate homeland to pursue their ‘civilizational destiny’. Second, he wants to narrate how the state...

Abstract:
A case series report of eleven splenic injuries is presented with a view to etiological factors, surgical treatment,prospects of splenic conservation and follow up. Eight cases sustained blunt abdominal trauma while theother three had fire arm injury. Splenorrhaphy was carried out successfully in two of the cases. Another fourcases could possibly have splenic salvage. Two cases developed delayed postoperative serious infection, whileone of the patients developed deep vein thrombosis.

Abstract:
Al-Radd ‘ala ’l-Mantiqiyyin (an alternative title for Nasihat Ahl al-Iman) is a work composed by Ibn Taymiyya to demolish each principle of logic as well as to unravel the depravity of their foundation. Probably due to Ibn Taymiyya’s being genius, when he destroys those principles, he could not avoid himself to discuss digressively irrelevant topics dealing with theological as well as metaphysical issues. In a number of passages in al-Radd, he could not even hinder himself to make a good deal of repetitions. Therefore, al-Radd ‘ala’l-Mantiqiyyin is complex and difficult to use. The coherence of arguments that Ibn Taymiyya formulated is not solid and comprehensive. His criticism of logic is not penetrating as well. On the basis of my analysis of al-Suyuti’s method of abridgement of Ibn Taymiyya’s al-Radd, I argue that al-Suyuti succeeded in rendering Ibn Taymiyya’s sequence of ideas superior to that found in the original work of the latter. The result of this study confirms Hallaq’s argument that the overall result of al-Suyuti’s abridgement of Ibn Taymiyya’s al-Radd is ‘a more effective critique of logic than that originally formulated by Ibn Taymiyya

Abstract:
This paper analyzes the post decryption error probability in Counter mode operation in an error prone communications channel. A finite state stochastic model has been developed that quantifies the impact of bit errors in the ciphertext and cipher synchronization counter. Analytical results are used to compute post decryption error probabilities and are found to be in reasonable agreement with the simulation results.

Abstract:
A research entitled “Performance of Growing Male Quails Under Different Complete Feeds and Floor Sorts” has been conducted in experimental farm, Faculty of Animal Husbandry Unsoed Purwokerto. The objective of the study is to find out the best floor sort and complete feed for performance of growing male quails. One hundred and fifty male quails at three weeks old were used in this study. Split Plot Design were used in this research. Floor sorts were used as maintreatments and they consists of L1 (litter floor) and L2 (wire floor) Complete feeds were used as subtreatment and they consists of P1 (AD 51), P2 (CP 511), P3(B 11) and P4 (BR 1). Deck levels were used as deck andT1 (high), T2 (meden) and T3 (low deck). Statistical analyses showed that complete feeds had significant effect (P<0.05) on feed consumption but not significant on body weight, growth and feed conversion. Floor sorts and their interaction with the complete feeds had not significant on the performance of the birds. It can be conclused that during growing period, P1 (AD 51) gave better performance and for floor shorts, either litter or wire can be used to growing male quails.

Abstract:
The Higgs sector of the standard model is field-theoretically a very interesting theory. Because strong and weak coupling domains are continuously connected, only quantitative changes distinguish the various regions. Especially, this is true for the asymptotic spectrum, which can only consist out of gauge-invariant composite, i. e. bound, states. Since in some regions of parameter space even Regge trajectories are expected to exist, there is immediately the possibility that resonances may also be present in the parameter region characteristic of the standard model Higgs sector. This possibility is discussed in some detail, starting from the definition of the theory to spectroscopy, including excited state analysis, to some considerations whether this could have experimental consequences. The strongest limitation for this exploration turns out to be that the gauge coupling without fermions runs much faster, and the gauge sector is therefore potentially affected.

Abstract:
The complete knowledge of a theory is encoded in its correlation functions. Thus non-perturbative effects, like confinement in QCD, is necessarily contained in these correlation functions. As a consequence, a number of confinement scenarios make predictions for the behavior of these correlation functions. Non-perturbative methods, like lattice calculations, permit to calculate the correlation functions and test these predictions. To avoid the entanglement with chiral symmetry breaking and the costs of full fermion simulations, here scalar QCD will be used as a role model, as it is expected that confinement operates in the same way. We present results on both two-point functions and three-point functions for the case of two colors and two flavors of scalars, and compare them to the predictions.

Abstract:
Yang-Mills-Higgs theory is quite a remarkable theory in that it shows very different behaviors without phase transitions. It is dominated by the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism in some domain of the phase diagram, while it is essentially QCD-like in another. It is expected that albeit there is no qualitative difference, there are substantially quantitative differences throughout the spectrum. This is investigated using lattice theory for the case of the scalar singlet channel for more than a hundred different points in the phase diagram. It is found that the results deviate partly substantially from the expectations in some cases, but in others justify the picture of a weakly interacting theory - even in cases of rather strong interactions at the ultraviolet cutoff.

Abstract:
Yang-Mills-Higgs theory, being the standard-model Higgs sector for a suitable choice of gauge and custodial group, offers a rich set of physics. In particular, in some region of its parameter space it has QCD-like behavior, while in some other region it is Higgs-like. Therefore, it is possible to study a plethora of phenomena within a single theory. Here, the physics of the standard-model version is studied using lattice gauge theory. To this end, the low-lying spectrum in several different channels is obtained for more than 140 different sets of bare parameters throughout the phase diagram. The theory shows quite different behaviors in the different regions, from almost Yang-Mills-like to the one of an essentially free gas of massive photons. Especially, not always is the behavior as naively expected.
