DOI: 10.33899/edusj.2008.51291

The study is mainly concerned with the physical factors affecting on association of carboxylic acids such as type of solvent, isomers, conjugation and steric effect of acid.
The degree of association of carboxylic acid is depend on the type of cis or trans isomer of acid. It is also increased by either increasing the number of conjugated double bonds or by introducing a polar group, taking into consideration a planer structure of acid.
Cis isomers of carboxylic acids prevent the association process by formation of acid monomers, while trans isomers facilitate the formation of dimers or polymers.
Finally exchange of solvent from non polar (benzene) to polar (nitrobenzene), prevents the association process by formation of monomers.

Histopathological and histochemical changes in the liver and spleen tissues of mice which was treated with alcoholic extract of Solanum nigrum and infected with secondary hydatid disease, were investigated with an ultimate goal of determining the role which might be played by the extract in modulating the immune system towards a better response to the hydatid disease. Results demonstrate the appearance of hepatomegaly and splenomegaly due to deposition of amyloidosis in liver and spleen, in addition to other changes such as fatty changes and hemosiderosis. Causes of these changes and the role played by the plant extract, as an immunomodulator, were discussed.

Wheat flour (WF) of 85% meal extraction was blended with or without defatted soybean flour (DSF) meal and enriched with 50 or 100mg iron/kg diet. Experimental diets (WF control, WF+50mg iron, WF+100mg iron, WF+50g DSF, WF+50g DSF+50mg iron and WF+50g DSF+100mg iron) were prepared and used for protein digestibility and hemoglobin regeneration efficiency studies. Sixty male weanling albino rats were used as a biological and experimental model for this study, rats were divided into two equal major groups. The first group (healthy rats) divided into six subgroups according to the hemoglobin (Hb) value fed experimental diets separately for 10 days period. The second group was iron depleted by removing 20-25 drops of blood from ocular vein by using capillary tube and considered to be anemic rats, divided and fed diets as a above. Analysis of variance showed that, the protein digestibility index of the healthy rats was higher than that index of the anemic rats. Apparent iron absorption was positively proportional to the dietary iron enrichment. DSF protein was improved the dietary iron absorption of the rats. The dietary iron absorption of the anemic rats was higher than that absorption of the healthy rats. Hb value, Hb iron gain and HRE were increased with increase dietary iron level (18-121mg/kg diet) in both trails of rats. HRE% of the anemic rats was higher than that ratio of the healthy rats. WF+50gDSF+50gm iron diet was found to improve protein digestibility, dietary iron absorption and HRE in rats.

Emotion recognition in speech studies has grown after the growing of speech recognition technologies. The aim of such studies is to make language interfaces in human-computer interaction applications more wide in use and to make it efficient. And it may help the studiers of the human sound areas.
This study deals with four spoken sentences of sixteen short utterance expressing five emotions: a happiness, anger, sadness, fear, and normal (unemotional) state. The feature extraction techniques are used to capture the most important information of the signal, this process is applied in the time domain. The extracted feature vector contain 12 LPC (linear predictive coding) parameters, the pitch, the power, and the three first formant frequencies. While in the second part of the system (the emotion recognizer) the artificial neural network technology is used, the designing network is with feedforward backpropagation. This design used ten separated nets. each one make a decision whether the spoken sentence is belong to one of only tow emotions. So the computational time is increased with this system, while such a system has better performance with respect to other systems.
The designed system could recognize all emotions with ratio 75% except the fear one which recognized in ratio of 50%.

DOI: 10.33899/edusj.2008.51257

The problem of optimizing a certain systems as a function of time may be formulated in terms of maximizing or minimizing a non-linear cost function. It was found that a Dynamic Programming (DP) algorithm was particularly efficient procedure for solving this problem compared with an alternative nonlinear programming method.
In this work, a new CG method with dynamical retards is generalized and combined in a dynamical way with non-monotone globalization strategies to obtain a new type CG-algorithm for minimizing non-quadratic functions that can deal efficiently with large scale nonlinear optimization problems.

Akram Mohammed; Mahmoud Hasen

JOURNAL OF EDUCATION AND SCIENCE, Volume 21, Issue 1, Pages 1-13
DOI: 10.33899/edusj.2008.51301

In this work, comparative isothermal and differential thermal analysis of epoxy-polyurea / metal blends were investigated. IGA measurements show fast loss in weight in the first 20 minutes before they reached a constant weight, while the period where about 25 minutes for epoxy alone. This behaviour was explained by the strong network formed by the polyurea complex with epoxy which diminshes its decomposition. Meanwhile, DTA thermograms of most belnds show two distinct exotherms (T2 and T4) while these exotherms are small and not clear in case of epoxy alone. This behaviour may explained by the presence of the metal ions through the blends which promotes the oxidation process.

Effect of optical feedback (O.F) on AlGaInP semiconductor laser properties and intensity modulation has been studied experimentally. Threshold current of semiconductor laser decreased 1mA when O.F equal to 160W , while there is no significant decreases observed in threshold current both when increasing O.F above that value or less than it. Influence of O.F on amplitude modulation spectrum at frequencies modulation (0.123,0.246, 0.546, 1.2)MHz has been studied. Fundamentals harmonic spectrum peaks increased with O.F especially at frequency modulation (1.2)MHz , whereas opposite effect of O.F observed on Fundamentals harmonic spectrum peaks at frequency 132kHz, since it decreased with O.F . O.F participate in decreasing of relative intensity noise (RIN) just at frequencies modulation(0.264, 0.546, 1.2)MHz with appearance of Flicker noise at frequency 132kHz. Signal to noise ratio (SNR) increased with O.F especially at frequency modulation equal to 1.2MHz has been observed.

As it is known the process encounter the researchers who are working in spatial statistics, in mining fields about ores, ground water, and agriculture and engineering sciences and ecology. From these experiences one concludes that the data have not normal distribution or approximated to normal distribution which is usually,supposed in theoretical side of studying spatial process. In this research we discuss the robust estimation of variogram function which is considered as effective tool in studying and prediction of stochastic process and also when the stochastic process is far or approximated the normal distribution. We show here the transformation of fourth root by using with and without M-Estimation method that result real stationary estimation of variogram function. The robust variogram function is applied on real data and another real data containing outliers. The results are encouraging.
