Dust Ion-acoustic K-dV and Modified K-dV Solitons in a Dusty Degenerate Dense Plasma

Physical Review & Research International, Volume: 3, Issue: 4 (October-December) 2013, Pages: 612-622

A theoretical investigation has been made of the roles of the degeneracy and the dynamics of electrons and ions on the DIA (dust ion-acoustic) Korteweg-de Vries (K-dV) and modified Kortewegde Vries (mK-dV) solitons that are found to exit in a dusty d...


Structural Characteristic of Bamboo and Rattan Cane Reinforced Concrete Struts

Physical Review & Research International, Volume: 3, Issue: 4 (October-December) 2013, Pages: 602-611

Corrosion in steel reinforced concrete structures has prompted researchers to work on alternative material to steel that are resistance to corrosion. This paper looked at the use of bamboo and rattan cane as alternative materials to steel in reinforc...


Form of Nonequilibrium Statistical Operator, Thermodynamic Flows and Entropy Production

Physical Review & Research International, Volume: 3, Issue: 4 (October-December) 2013, Pages: 591-601

Nonequilibrium statistical operator (NSO) in the form suggested by Zubarev is represented as an averaging operation of the quasiequilibrium statistical operator over the distribution of the lifetime of the system. The form of the density function of ...

Education for All in Low-Income Countries: A Crucial Role for Cognitive Scientists

British Journal of Education, Society & Behavioural Science, Volume: 3, Issue: 4 (October-December) 2013, Pages: 436-455

Donor funding has helped enroll in school most children of low-income countries. However, students get little schooling and few opportunities to encode and consolidate information. Many fail to learn and automatize the small units needed for more com...





Biology of Pathogenicity (Theoretical Review)

Annual Review & Research in Biology, Volume: 3, Issue: 4 (October-December) 2013, Pages: 805-813

Phenomenon of pathogenicity is the polyfunctional biological potency of germs that are realized by factors (determinants) of pathogenicity [1]. Bacterial pathogenicity is an ability of bacteria to induce and develop infectious diseases in multi-cellu...
