Heuristic Change Propagation Model Encompassing Ripple Effect (HRE)
Mai Al-Shareef,Ahmad Al- Rababah
Asian Journal of Information Technology , 2012,
Abstract: Software maintenance is one of the major concerns of software developers and industries. Maintenance highly depends on the understanding of the nature of the system and the relation between modules. However, these relations rely on many factors and all of them can`t be determined and studied clearly. One of the most important issues in software maintenance is to propagate the changes when a module is modified within the system that is to determine the modules which are affected from the change and determine the next module to trace from the set of affected modules. For this, the modules within the system are represented using a directed graph. When a module is modified a heuristic function will be used to determine the next module to be modified. The change studied in this study is the modification within modules not the insertion or deletion of modules.

Annals of Thoracic Medicine , 2006,
Abstract: STUDY OBJECTIVE: To compare between Abrams and Cope needles pleural biopsy, as regard their diagnostic yield and complications in pleural effusions. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart analysis SETTING: 140 bed community chest hospital, ministry of health, affiliated with teaching hospitals in Riyadh area. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 57 patients (44 males and 13 females), with a mean age of 37.9 years (range, 17-80 years), who were admitted through July 1994 to June 1995, for management of pleural effusion. INTERVENTION: Pleural biopsy was performed for all patients, using either cope needle (group 1: 22 patients), or Abrams needle (group 2: 35 patients). MEASUREMENT: We recorded the type of pleural biopsy needle, final diagnosis and complications. RESULTS: The overall diagnostic sensitivity in pleural effusions for Cope needle was 82% (18/22), compared to 54% (19/35) for Abrams needle. The diagnostic sensitivity in TB pleurisy for Cope needle was 85% (17/20), compared to 57.5 (19/33)% for Abrams needle ( P = 0.08). The incidence of pneumothorax was 18% (4/22) with cope needle, compared to 8% (3/35) with Abrams needle ( P = 0.5) no other complications occurred with both needles. CONCLUSION: Cope needle demonstrates a diagnostic sensitivity equal to that of Abrams needle, without increase in the incidence of pneumothorax.
Soliton Solutions and Numerical Treatment of the Nonlinear Schrodinger’s Equation Using Modified Adomian Decomposition Method  [PDF]
Abeer Al-Shareef, Alyaa A. Al Qarni, Safa Al-Mohalbadi, Huda O. Bakodah
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2016.412215
Abstract: In this paper, the improved Adomian decomposition method (ADM) is applied to the nonlinear Schrödinger’s equation (NLSE), one of the most important partial differential equations in quantum mechanics that governs the propagation of solitons through optical fibers. The performance and the accuracy of our improved method are supported by investigating several numerical examples that include initial conditions. The obtained results are compared with the exact solutions. It is shown that the method does not need linearization, weak or perturbation theory to obtain the solutions.

Computer Science , 2012,
Abstract: In auction theory, cryptography has been used to achieve anonymity of the participants, security and privacy of the bids, secure computation and to simulate mediator (auctioneer). Auction theory focuses on revenue and Cryptography focuses on security and privacy. Involving Cryptography at base level, to enhance revenue gives entirely new perspective and insight to Auction theory, thereby achieving the core goals of auction theory. In this report, we try to investigate an interesting field of study in Auction Theory using Cryptographic primitives.

Open Journal of Geology (OJG) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojg.2018.87039
Abstract: Gold mineralization at G. R. Halli is located along the Central shear zone of Chitradurga schist belt, extending from west of Gonur, through east of G. R. Halli and C. K. Halli to east of Honnemardi, roughly parallel to stratigraphic units. The NNW-SSE trending shear zone has a width of 0.5 to 1.5 km shows extensive carbonatization of metabasalts and the associated lithologies confined to NNW-WNW trending arcuate brittle-ductile zone. The sheared and silicified contact zones between carbonaceous argillite and schistose metabasalt form the potential sites for localization of mineralization. The gold is associated with sulphides mainly pyrite, arsenopyrite, galena, sphalerite, minor chalcopyrite. Textural relationship indicates two stage sulphide mineral assemblages co-relatable with two stage fluid ascents having temperature of homogenization between 125°C and 256°C. It is a typical epigenetic lode gold system, which got affected by later deformation.

International Journal of Electronic Commerce Studies , 2012,
Abstract: E-government systems world are employed all over the world in an attempt to utilize information and communications technology (ICT) to improve government services provided to a range of stakeholders. In employing these systems, governments aim to become more accessible, effective, efficient, and accountable to their citizens. To improve the quality of service delivery to the public, government institutions have to cooperate and manage the shared resources and information flows. The aim of this paper is to analyse one of the established e-government stage models, such as the United Kingdom, and to identify possible opportunities to adopt them for use in the regional governments of developing countries. The study revealed that the analysed model cannot be adopted for use in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) due to various critical issues relating to ICT infrastructure, e-readiness, legal framework, cultural attitude, education level, political process, and others.
Effective Stochastic Modeling of Energy-Constrained Wireless Sensor Networks
Ali Shareef,Yifeng Zhu
Journal of Computer Networks and Communications , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/870281
Abstract: Energy consumption of energy-constrained nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a fatal weakness of these networks. Since these nodes usually operate on batteries, the maximum utility of the network is dependent upon the optimal energy usage of these nodes. However, new emerging optimal energy consumption algorithms, protocols, and system designs require an evaluation platform. This necessitates modeling techniques that can quickly and accurately evaluate their behavior and identify strengths and weakness. We propose Petri nets as this ideal platform. We demonstrate Petri net models of wireless sensor nodes that incorporate the complex interactions between the processing and communication components of an WSN. These models include the use of both an open and closed workload generators. Experimental results and analysis show that the use of Petri nets is more accurate than the use of Markov models and programmed simulations. Furthermore, Petri net models are extremely easier to construct and test than either. This paper demonstrates that Petri net models provide an effective platform for studying emerging energy-saving strategies in WSNs. 1. Introduction and Motivations Application for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has abounded since their introduction in early 2000. WSNs are being used from surveillance, environmental monitoring, inventory tracking, and localization. A sensor network typically comprises of individual nodes operating with some limited computation and communication capabilities, and powered by batteries with limited energy supply. Furthermore, these networks are situated at a location where they may not be easily accessible. Their distributed nature, small footprint, cheap, and wireless characteristics make them very attractive for these outdoor, unattended, and hostile environment applications. One of the motivating visions of WSNs was large-scale remote sensing such as large areas of a rainforest for environmental parameters such as humidity and temperature. However, given the remoteness of such a site, this can be a challenging problem. Modern WSNs were proposed for solving such problems, and it was envisioned that these WSN nodes could be sprinkled over an area from the back of an airplane as it flew over such an area. The nodes wherever they fell would automatically set up an ad hoc network, collect the necessary sensory information, and route the information to a base-station. Although great strides have been made in WSN designs and implementation, we are nowhere near meeting this original motivating problem. One reason why
