MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF NEWLY DESIGNED TWO POROUS LAYERS SLIDER BEARING WITH A CONVEX PAD UPPER SURFACE CONSIDERING SLIP AND SQUEEZE VELOCITY USING FERROFLUID LUBRICANT
2
2
This paper proposes mathematical modeling and analysis of ferrofluid lubricated newly designed slider bearing having convex pad (surface or plate) stator with two porous layers attached to the slider. The problem considers the effect of slip velocity proposed by Sparrow et. al.[1] and modified by Shah et. al.[2] at the filmporous interface. The squeeze velocity V=−which appears when the upper impermeable plate approach to the lower one, is also considered here for study. The magnetic field is assumed to be oblique to the lower plate. From the Reynolds’s equation of the above model, expressions for dimensionless form of pressure and load carrying capacity are obtained. The expression for the dimensionless load carrying capacity is then solved numerically to examine its possible effect on the designed bearing system

SOLVING BLASIUS EQUATION USING IMPERIALIST COMPETITIVE ALGORITHM
2
2
In this study, a new approach isintroduced to solve Blasius differential equation using of ImperialistCompetitive Algorithm (ICA). This algorithm is inspired by competitionmechanism among Imperialists and colonies and has demonstrated excellent capabilitiessuch as simplicity, accuracy, faster convergence and better global optimumachievement in contrast to other evolutionary algorithms. The obtained results havebeen compared with the exact solution of Blasius equation and another resultobtained in previous works and showhigher accuracy and less computational requirements. Inaddition, the method presented with details can beeasily extended to solve a wide range of nonlinear problems.

THE COMPARISON OF TWO METHOD NONPARAMETRIC APPROACH ON SMALL AREA ESTIMATION (CASE: APPROACH WITH KERNEL METHODS AND LOCAL POLYNOMIAL REGRESSION)
2
2
Small Area estimation is a technique used to estimate parameters of subpopulations with small sample sizes. Small area estimation is needed in obtaining information on a small area, such as subdistrict or village. Generally, in some cases, small area estimation uses parametric modeling. But in fact, a lot of models have no linear relationship between the small area average and the covariate. This problem requires a nonparametric approach to solve, such asKernel approach and Local Polynomial Regression (LPR). The purpose of this study is comparing the results of small area estimation using Kernel approach and LPR. Data used in this study are generated by simulation results using R language . Simulation data obtained by generating function m (x) are linear and quadratic pattern. The criteria used to compare the results of the simulation are Absolute Relative Bias (ARB), Mean Square Error (MSE), Generalized Cross Validation (GCV), and risk factors. The simulation results showed: 1) Kernel gives smaller relative bias than LPR does on both linear and quadratic data pattern. The relative bias obtained by Kernel tends to be more stable and consistent than the relative bias resulted by LPR, (2) the Kernel MSE is smaller than the LPR MSE either on linear or quadratic pattern in any combination treatment, (3) the value of GCV and the risk factors in Kernel are smaller than these in LPR in any combination of the simulated data patterns, (4) on non parametric data, for both linear data pattern and quadratic data pattern, Kernel methods provide better estimation compared to LPR.

CONSTANT STRESS ACCELERATED LIFE TESTING DESIGNWITH TYPEII CENSORING SCHEME FOR PARETO DISTRIBUTION USING GEOMETRIC PROCESS
2
2
In many of the studies concerning Accelerated life testing (ALT), the log linear function between life and stress which is just a simple reparameterization of the original parameter of the life distribution is used to obtain the estimates of original parameters but from the statistical point of view, it is preferable to work with the original parameters instead of developing inferences for the parameters of the loglinear link function. In this paper the geometric process is used to estimate the parameters of Pareto Distribution with typeII censored data in constant stress accelerated life testing. Assuming that the lifetimes under increasing stress levels form a geometric process, estimates of the parameters are obtained by using the maximum likelihood method. In addition, asymptotic confidence interval estimates of the parameters using Fisher information matrix are also obtained. The statistical properties of estimates of the parameters and the confidence intervals are illustrated by a Simulation study.

MATHEMATICAL MODELLING FOR DICE FINDER GAME PROBLEM
2
2
Play is often episodic and missioncentric, with a series of challenges culminating in a final puzzle or enemy that must be overcome. Multiple missions played with the same characters may be related to each other in a plot arc of escalating challenges. The exact tone, structure, pace and end (if any) vary from game to game depending on the needs and preferences of the players, as in [9]. "THE CHANCE ELEMENT in thousands of indoor games is introduced by a variety of simple randomnumber generators. The most popular of such devices, ever since the time of ancient Egypt, have been cubical Dice. Cubical, Because of their symmetry, any of the five regular solids can be and have been used as gaming dice, but the cube has certain obvious advantages over the other four solids. It is the easiest to make, its six sides accommodate a set of numbers neither too large nor too small, and it rolls easily enough but not too easily", as in [1], [2]. In our proposed Dice Finder game problem, user can see the different dice number's on screen from 1 to 6. Using the property of Dice that “Opposite sides of a dice add up to seven”, user has to find that correct number of dice out all of that, for which one condition is true.

MODELLING AND ANALYSIS OF A DISCRETETIME PRIORITY QUEUING COMPUTER NETWORK WITH PRIORITY JUMPS USING PROBABILITY GENERATING FUNCTIONS
2
2
Priority queues have a great importance in the study of computer communication networks in which different types of traffic require different quality of service standards. The discretetime nonpreemptive priority queuing model with priority jumps is proposed in this paper. On the basis of probability generating functions mean system contents and mean queuing delay characteristics are obtained. The effect of jumping mechanism is analysed which clearly shows that the queuing system provides better results when the fraction of class1 arrivals in the overall traffic mix is small.

SOLVING A STEP FIXED CHARGE TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM BY A SPANNING TREEBASED MEMETIC ALGORITHM
2
2
In this paper, we consider the step fixedcharge transportation problem (FCTP) in which a step fixed cost, sometimes called a setup cost, is incurred if another related variable assumes a nonzero value. In order to solve the problem, two metaheuristic, a spanning treebased genetic algorithm (GA) and a spanning treebased memetic algorithm (MA), are developed for this NPhard problem. For comparing GA and MA, twenty eight problems with different specifics have been generated at random and then the quality of the proposed algorithms was evaluated using the relative percentage deviation (RPD) method. Finally, based on RPD method, we investigate the impact of increasing the problem size on the performance of our proposed algorithms.
