Additive Decomposition with Arima Model Forecasts When the Trend Component Is Quadratic

Biu O. Emmanuel, Dennis Enegesele, C. O. Arimie
This paper demonstrates the use of Buys-Ballot table for identification of decomposition model using graphical method, when the trend cycle component is quadratic. A suitable ARIMA model was fitted, and was used for forecasting. Using the Buys-Ballot techniques, the column means, variances and standard deviation were estimated for the model identification. The additive model had no seasonal effect but, the multiplicative model had seasonal effect. The result of the illustrative example using the...

Octave Analysis of Logistic Growth Model for Pig Pen: Its Economic Viability

I. S. S. Abang, O. N. Nze, O. A. Oriola, I. S. Amasiatu
Pig pen is fast becoming a very lucrative system of farming in Nigeria, most especially in the South-Eastern region of the country. This form of animal farming is very cost effective and does not need much training before someone ventures into it, as pigs are a very special breed of animals that can eat almost any kind of food, and they do not fall sick easily when compared with chicken poultry or fish poultry business. This paper also discussed how swine breeding could help in addressing enviro...

An Exact Ranked Linear Assignments Solution to the Symmetric Traveling Salesman Problem

Roy Danchick
In this paper, we show how Murty’s ranked linear assignment algorithm can be applied to exactly solve the symmetric Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). To increase the Murty algorithm’s computational efficiency in solving the TSP, we develop a simple algorithm that determines whether a node that is generated in Murty’s sequential node partitioning process contains a sub-cycle of length less than n, where n is the number of cities to be visited. Each such node cannot generate a genuine solution, wh...

EPQ Inventory Model for Deteriorating Raw Materials with Two-Level Trade Credit and Limited Storage Capacity under Alternate Due Date of Payment

Ghi-Feng Yen, Shy-Der Lin, An-Kuo Lee
Economic production quantity (EPQ) research has typically focused on the cost of production processes, but has not employed accurate calculation to assess factors influencing ordering costs, because one of their assumptions is the raw materials that are product timely. However, the production and transport process of raw materials are influencing factors and increase the holding cost of raw materials, either by incre

Construction of Risk Prediction Model for Alzheimer’s Disease Based on Meta-Analysis

Shuang Jiang, Zhezhi Jin
Objective: Construction of risk prediction model for Alzheimer’s disease based on Meta-analysis. Method: Documenting such as CNKI, WanFang database and VIP database, which were published in China from 2010 to 2018 and had data on risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease. Meta-analysis of standards compliant literature using RevMan5.3 software and then combine the results to obtain a comprehensive risk for each risk factor, the risk pr

EPQ Policies Considering the Holding Cost of Raw Materials under Conditions of Two-Level Trade Credit and Limited Storage Capacity

Ghi-Feng Yen, Shy-Der Lin, An-Kuo Lee
The economic production quantity model is widely used as a decision making tool. However, climate change and energy supply instability have raised the transport costs of raw materials, thereby affecting production costs. Therefore, this paper presents a new model that considers the holding costs of raw materials under conditions of two-level trade credit and limited storage capacity. Four theorems are developed to characterize the

Modeling Wind Energy Using Copula

Zuhair Bahraoui, Fatima Bahraoui, M. Amin Bahraoui
In most studies related to wind energy, the quantity of the air density is consid-ered constant, but actually, we know that it is variable and depending on others natural factors. We present a new procedure to estimate the wind density power energy by simulating the components of the air density. The procedure uses the copula theory and demonstrates that the estimated power energy is higher if

Cointegration Based Regression to Analyse Linkage between Share Price Index and Macroeconomic Variables: Evidence from Colombo Stock Exchange

Gayani Thalagoda, Kusal Rathnayake, Sachith Abeysundara
The main objective of the study is to investigate the long run performance of the All Share Price Index (ASPI) of the Colombo Stock Exchange, based on the economic activities of Sri Lanka using cointegration and auto regressive time series. The cointegration test illustrates that share price index is cointegrated with a specific set of macroeconomic variables, i.e. exchange rate (USD/LKR), money supply, wage rates, wet foreign ass

Studying the Changes of an Optimal Trajectory

Ahmed Mohamed Mohamed El-Sayed
This paper provides an extension to an optimal control problem using the negative logarithm of deterioration and spoilage function as total cost. This function must be minimized at the end of planning period depending on the alternative quadratic exponential form. The co-state variable   has negative values along the optimal trajectory according to the Pontryagin Minimum Principle (PMP). The different values of this co-state

Properties of the Maximum Likelihood Estimates and Bias Reduction for Logistic Regression Model

Nuri H. Salem Badi
A frequent problem in estimating logistic regression models is a failure of the likelihood maximization algorithm to converge. Although popular and extremely well established in bias correction for maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters for logistic regression, the behaviour and properties of the maximum likelihood method are less investigated. The main aim of this paper is to examine the behaviour and properties of the pa
