Occupational Health and Safety Awareness, Knowledge of the Risks and Practices of Risk prevention of Hair and Beauty Salon Workers in Rural and Urban Areas of Western Nepal
Gopal Prasad Sedhain,Rajendra Adhikari
Himalayan Journal of Sociology and Anthropology , 2012, DOI: 10.3126/hjsa.v5i0.7038
Abstract: There is a need to meet and maintain high standards of safety, health and hygiene so that no risk is present to workers and clients in salon/parlors. Given the fact that hair and beauty salon workers and customers are at risk, this study is focused on hair and beauty salon workers’ OHS awareness, knowledge of the risks and practices of risk preventions. Based on the data collected by interviewing a total of 60 salon/parlor workers from 60 workplaces in western Nepal, the study has revealed that the level of OHS awareness, knowledge of risk and risk prevention practices among salon/ parlor workers associated with their profession is satisfactory. Similarly, the level of OHS awareness, knowledge of risk and risk prevention practices associated with their profession is more satisfactory in urban area than the rural areas.

Weakly-split spherical Tits systems in quasi-reductive groups
Gopal Prasad
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: The main result of this paper (Theorem B) asserts that under natural conditions, any weakly-split Tits system in G(k), G a reductive or quasi-reductive group over an arbitrary field k, is the standard one.
Growth and Yield Responses of Switchgrass Ecotypes to Temperature  [PDF]
Tanka Prasad Kandel, Yanqi Wu, Vijaya Gopal Kakani
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2013.46145
Abstract:

Varietal differences of switchgrass in growth and development, biomass yield and partitioning in response to temperature are not well documented. A study was conducted to quantify the effect of temperature on growth, development, and feedstock quality of switchgrass cultivars, and to determine differences between upland and lowland switchgrass. Two lowland (Alamo and Kanlow) and two upland (Caddo and Cave-in-Rock) cultivars of switchgrass were grown in pots filled with pure, fine sand in growth chambers. Four different temperature treatments of 23℃/15, 28/20, 33/25, and 38/30 with 14/10 hours day/night were imposed at four leaf stage. High temperature significantly decreased the biomass yield across all cultivars. Stem elongation rate (SER) and leaf elongation rate (LER) decreased at the highest temperature treatment but lowland cultivars had significantly higher SER and LER across the temperature treatments. Upland cultivars produced more tillers across the temperature treatment. Both

Weakly commensurable arithmetic groups, lengths of closed geodesics and isospectral locally symmetric spaces
Gopal Prasad,Andrei S. Rapinchuk
Mathematics , 2007, DOI: 10.1007/s10240-009-0019-6
Abstract: We introduce the notion of weak commensurabilty of arithmetic subgroups and relate it to the length equivalence and isospectrality of locally symmetric spaces. We prove many strong consequences of weak commensurabilty and derive from these many interesting results about isolength and isospectral locally symmetric spaces.
On the fields generated by the lengths of closed geodesics in locally symmetric spaces
Gopal Prasad,Andrei S. Rapinchuk
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: This paper is the next installment of our analysis of length-commensurable locally symmetric spaces begun in Publ. math. IHES 109(2009), 113-184. For a Riemannian manifold $M$, we let $L(M)$ be the weak length spectrum of $M$, i.e. the set of lengths of all closed geodesics in $M$, and let $\mathcal{F}(M)$ denote the subfield of $\mathbb{R}$ generated by $L(M)$. Let now $M_i$ be an arithmetically defined locally symmetric space associated with a simple algebraic $\mathbb{R}$-group $G_i$ for $i = 1, 2$. Assuming Schanuel's conjecture from transcendental number theory, we prove (under some minor technical restrictions) the following dichotomy: either $M_1$ and $M_2$ are length-commensurable, i.e. $\mathbb{Q} \cdot L(M_1) = \mathbb{Q} \cdot L(M_2)$, or the compositum $\mathcal{F}(M_1)\mathcal{F}(M_2)$ has infinite transcendence degree over $\mathcal{F}(M_i)$ for at least one $i = 1$ or $2$ (which means that the sets $L(M_1)$ and $L(M_2)$ are very different).

Local-global principles for embedding of fields with involution into simple algebras with involution
Gopal Prasad,Andrei S. Rapinchuk
Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: In this paper we prove local-global principles for embedding of fields with involution into central simple algebras with involution over a global field. These should be of interest in study of classical groups over global fields. We deduce from our results that in a group of type D_n, n>4 even, two weakly commensurable Zariski-dense S-arithmetic subgroups are actually commensurable. A consequence of this result is that given an absolutely simple algebraic K-group G of type D_n, n>4 even, K a number field, any K-form G' of G having the same set of isomorphism classes of maximal K-tori as G, is necessarily K-isomorphic to G. These results lead to results about isolength and isospectral compact hyperbolic spaces of dimension 2n-1 with n even.
Number theoretic techniques in the theory of Lie groups and differential geometry
Gopal Prasad,Andrei S. Rapinchuk
Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to present a survey of our recent results on length commensurable and isospectral locally symmetric spaces. The geometric questions led us to the notion of "weak commensurability" of two Zariski-dense subgroups in a semi-simple Lie group. We have shown that for arithmetic subgroups, weak commensurability has surprisingly strong consequences. Our proofs make use of p-adic techniques and results from algebraic and transcendental number theory.

Weakly commensurable groups, with applications to differential geometry
Gopal Prasad,Andrei S. Rapinchuk
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: The article contains a survey of our results on weakly commensurable arithmetic and general Zariski-dense subgroups, length-commensurable and isospectral locally symmetric spaces and of related problems in the theory of semi-simple agebraic groups. We have included a discussion of very recent results and conjectures on absolutely almost simple algebraic groups having the same maximal tori and finite-dimensional division algebras having the same maximal subfields.
