Evaluating a Student MIS in the Tertiary Education Sector: Addressing Functional-Operational Misalignment through Continuous Participative Evaluation  [PDF]
Marian Carcary
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2010.31004
Abstract: The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) evaluation literature spans several decades. ICT evaluation approaches range from objective and positivistic to subjective and interpretive. While positivistic approaches have dominated the past, there is increasing recognition of the value of interpretivist methods and the need for ongoing project evaluation. Formative continuous participative evaluation (CPE) offers several benefits in terms of project control, enhanced stakeholder relationships and benefit realisation; nonetheless this is often ignored in practice. There is a paucity of ICT evaluation within the Higher Education sector. The 14 Irish Institutes of Technology (IoTs) recently underwent an extensive transformation of their ICT systems, through a nationwide implementation of a suite of integrated IS. This research study, centred on the evaluation of the Student MIS implementation was interpretive in nature; case studies were conducted in five IoTs. This paper focuses specifically on one issue uncovered through the research i.e. the misalignment between the Student MIS and the IoTs requirements. The paper proposes a set of guidelines for addressing this issue through focusing on the theoretical underpinnings of CPE and its importance for organisational learning and benefit realisation.
Cancer Status: Mocb and tPSA Prostate Cancer Markers  [PDF]
Marian Surma
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2012.36144
Abstract: On the basis of the results of magneto-optical studies and their comparison with the outcome of medical tests magneto-optical MOCB and tPSA serum markers of cancer/recovered patient are presented. Status of the cancer serum donor is recognized as presence of the laevorotatory optical active molecules of (-)p density in serum while status of the recovered donor is recognized as quantitative domination of the dextrorotatory (+)p molecules in serum. These molecular information carriers (-)p and (+)p are recorded by the magneto-optical circular birefringence MOCB effect in B2 magnetic field. The laevo/dextrorotatory carriers are enantiomers in the case of (-)p = (+)p relations fulfilled for any individual cancer and the same recovered patient. The positive predictive value PPV of MOCB results is 100%.
Enantiomers Present in Serum Carry Cancer and/or Recovery Status Information  [PDF]
Marian Surma
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2014.56071

Human blood serum of cancer, cancer-recovered and healthy patients contains laevorotatory and dextrorotatory B2 active molecules. The laevorotatory B2 active carriers in patient serum carry information on the cancer status while the dextrorotatory B2 active carriers carry information on the recovered and/or healthy patient status. Their magneto-optical characteristic is analysed by the B2 Magneto Optical Circular Birefringence. By applying the MOCB experimental technique, it is possible to differentiate between the cancer and non-cancer patients. The paper introduces a purely molecular physics approach for description of the cancer/recovered and also non-cancer patients status.

“To Understand Russia”? Question about Russia as a Philosophical Problem  [PDF]
Marian Broda
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2014.44063
Abstract: The aim of this article is to identify and explain the cognitive possibilities which—for the sake of analysis of the questions about Russia and the efforts to “understand Russia”, for centuries central to the Russian intellectual and cultural tradition—are offered by the post-Kantian philosophical perspective. The fundamental research method is the analysis of texts in which representative members of the Russian philosophical and broader intelectual-cultural tradition undertake selfcoqnitive attempts, asking questions about Russia. The analyses which I have undertaken, show that in the post-Kantian theoretical perspective it is possible to strive for recognition of the basic assumptions, structures, properties and conditions of the sense-making processes, which are invisible for such a subject, which is directly involved in a specific cognitive relation. It is then possible and required to determine which forms and structures can appear—and why—within those basic assumptions or conditions as important—from the perspective of subject, object or axiology—the recognition of factors, conditions and limits of heterogenization of the basic structural and substantial solutions, the recurring relations of senses and the types of their specifications, and the scope and methods of permitted self-problematization. In conclusion, I wish to state that the questions about Russia are, therefore, truly questions of their authors about themselves and their way of understanding the world.
Molecular Marker of Tumours  [PDF]
Marian Surma
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2016.710070
Abstract: Molecular structure of the marker of tumour is determined by magneto-optical analysis of blood serum. The marker is the laevorotatory enantiomer of alanine. The cancer status of a subject is described by the number of molecules of the laevorotatory alanine enantiomer (-)ρ and the effectiveness of therapy is measured by the number of molecules of the dextrorotatory alanine enantiomer (+)ρ. The values of (-)ρ and (+)ρ are determined separately for the patient before and after therapy.
Learning the Business  [PDF]
Mike Holcombe, Marian Gheorghe
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.32042
Abstract: Developing software is a highly creative process. This paper describes a novel approach to teaching software engineering which involves university students working in partnership with external clients from business, charities and the public sector building solutions to their business and other problems. The paper describes the basic principles behind these activities and focuses on the experiences of teaching advanced students through the medium of a commercial software development company specifically set up to be run by the students as part of their degree course. The evidence from student and employer feedback demonstrates that this approach has been highly successful for the past 20 years or so but despite this it has rarely, if ever, been replicated elsewhere.
Maximal Phase Space Compression  [PDF]
Mihai Dima, Marian Petre
Journal of Signal and Information Processing (JSIP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jsip.2013.42024

The (seldomly quoted) generalised-Heisenberg uncertainty relations are an effect of the quantum correlation coefficient inequalities. The quantum correlation coefficient determines how much a state can be compacted and on what basis. It is shown that how this can be used to best compress a signal (such as a radio wave, or a 2D laser complex field at a focal plane) while at the same time encrypting the signal.

Global attractivity without stability for Liénard type systems
Marian Mure an
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2001, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171201010262
Abstract: We are concerned with some conditions such as the trivial solution of a planar system of differential equations (including the Liénard system) that is globally attractive but not stable. We emphasize the connection with some nonoscillatory conditions. The results are related to the previous ones obtained by Hara in 1993.
Entropy and Effective Support Size
Marian Grendar
Entropy , 2006, DOI: 10.3390/e8030169
Abstract: Notion of Effective size of support (Ess) of a random variable is introduced. A smallset of natural requirements that a measure of Ess should satisfy is presented. The measure withprescribed properties is in a direct (exp-) relationship to the family of R ?nyi’s α-entropies which eincludes also Shannon’s entropy H. Considerations of choice of the value of α imply that exp(H)appears to be the most appropriate measure of Ess.Entropy and Ess can be viewed thanks to their log / exp relationship as two aspects of the samething. In Probability and Statistics the Ess aspect could appear more basic than the entropic one.
