Solution of second order linear fuzzy difference equation by Lagrange's multiplier method

Solution of second order linear fuzzy difference equation by Lagrange's multiplier method

In this paper we execute the solution procedure for second order linear fuzzy difference equation by Lagrange’s multiplier method. In crisp sense the difference equation are easy to solve, but when we take in fuzzy sense it forms a system of difference equation which is not so easy to solve. By the help of Lagrange’s multiplier we can solved it easily. The results are illustrated by two different numerical examples and followed by two applications.

Is the new keynesian is curve forward looking?

Is the new keynesian is curve forward looking?

Based on the analysis of the solutions of the hybrid new Keynesian IS curve I arrive at the conclusion that this curve is backward looking regardless of the size of the forward coefficient. The backward solution of the new Keynesian IS curve expectational difference equation implies that the current interest rate as well as the expected future real interest rates do not matter for the determination of current output gap. In the canonical new Keynesian Taylor- rule model, the central bank promises to make nominal interest higher when inflation is above its target. When the elasticity of substitution is less than or equal to one (σ ≤ 1) the higher interest rate does not bring about a reduced level of aggregate demand in the current period. Instead, it yields a higher level of aggregate demand in the current period and in the next period. Current inflation would increase due to a positive current output gap and a higher expected inflation, unless inflation jumps to a locally bounded equilibrium. 12

Development of Fast Disintegration Tablets As Oral Drug Deliverysystem :A Review

promoting actions is a good tool for product life cycle management for increasing the patent life of existing products. Fast Disintegrating Tablets is the best delivery system when needs a rapid onset of action. Today, for the treatment of allergies, cold, and flu symptoms, ODTs are more widely available as OTC products. The target population has expanded to those who want convenient dosing anywhere, anytime, without water. The potential for such dosage forms is promising because of the availability of new technologies combined with strong market acceptance and patient demand. By paying close attention to advances in technologies, pharmaceutical companies can take advantage of ODTs for product line extensions or for first-to-market products. With continued development of new pharmaceutical excipients, one can expect the emergence of more novel technologies for ODTs in the days to come.

Evaluating the influence of selected parameters on sensitivity of a numerical model of solidification

Evaluating the influence of selected parameters on sensitivity of a numerical model of solidification

The examined model is a computational solver from the NuscaS system [10], which is used for simulating thermomechanical phenomena in solidifying castings. It is based upon the heat conduction equation with a source term, solved using enthalpy formulation of solidification [11]. The finite element method is applied for spatial discretization, which allows to obtain a system of matrix equations with the derivative with respect to time. Integration is performed using the two-step Dupont II scheme [12].

A discrete homotopy perturbation method for non-linear Schrodinger equation

A discrete homotopy perturbation method for non-linear Schrodinger equation

The Schrödinger equation being a partial differential equation describes the quantum state of a physical system and the changes in that system with respect to time. It was first time formulated by Schrödinger in 1925(Schrödinger, 1926) . In the sense of classical mechanics, the governing equation predicts the behavior of a system mathematically at any time after the initial state of the system is set and this corresponds to the Newton’s law  F  ma  . In the language of quantum mechanics, the Schrödinger equation is analogous to Newton’s law for quantum mechanical system (which usually involves molecules, atoms, sub-atomic particles, whether moving freely, bounded or localized). It is not as simple algebraic operation but in general form it is a linear partial differential equation that describes the evaluation of time of the wave function system (Griffiths, 2004).

The Influence Of CSR Awareness On Consumer Purchase Decision Of A Telecommunication Network In Ghana A Case Of La Nkwantanag Madina Municipality

The Influence Of CSR Awareness On Consumer Purchase Decision Of A Telecommunication Network In Ghana A Case Of La Nkwantanag Madina Municipality

Consumers are willing to pay a premium for products made in socially and environmentally responsible ways. Consumers claim that they are willing to pay a higher price for products of socially responsible firms, but are not willing to spend time on figuring out which firm is socially responsible. At the same time, a segment of consumers continue to buy products from firms with well acknowledged bad ethical conducts. Consumers do not act as what they claim. A small number of highly ethical consumers do exist. They care much about producers‘ CSR in their buying and consumption choices (Carrigan & Attalla, 2001). Carrigan and Attalla (2001) categorized consumers into four types based on their ethical awareness and ethical purchase intention. Consumers with low ethical awareness and low ethical purchase intention are called oblivious consumers. Confused and uncertain consumers are those with low ethical awareness but show high ethical purchase intention. Consumers with high ethical awareness who do not make purchase intention accordingly are cynical and disinterested consumers. The last type is caring and ethical consumers who obtain sufficient CSR information and are highly ethical in their purchase activities. Carrigan and Attalla (2001) also pointed out that consumers are not the only stakeholders of a business. Other stakeholders such as employees, environmental organizations may care much about a firm‘s CSR. Each stakeholder group has a focus on firms‘ CSR. The focus is usually what influences their interest most. When addressing CSR, firms need always engage the target stakeholders and their focus of concerns. Philanthropy seen everywhere without any consumer engagement has little contribution to consumer choice. Consumers‘ awareness of firms‘ CSR is limited in general, so opportunities exist in the communication of corporate social performance and social responsibility initiatives with consumers. Even though consumers‘ choices are not significantly influenced by a firm‘s CSR, it is still important to be socially responsible in business operations. Consumers may have more CSR information and become more ethical in their purchasing behavior in the future. In addition, the new generation may behave differently to socially responsible companies‘ products.

Pesqui. Oper. vol.23 número3

QAP is a NP-hard problem that has been studied by a number of researchers in combinatorial optimization through the second half of the 20 th century and which continues to excite the curiosity of many others, both in the study of exact algorithms and through the formulation of information mechanisms for heuristics. The exact approach is severely limited by the high complexity of the problem, a difficult 30-order instance (Nug30) having been solved exactly only through a huge work of metacomputing. More recent years have seen an increased interest in the use of metaheuristic schemes: some examples are [AQB99], [BT94], [AOT00], [CMMT97], [Ma00], [TRFR01] and [TS95].

A Compact Finite Difference Method for Solving the General Rosenau-RLW Equation

A Compact Finite Difference Method for Solving the General Rosenau-RLW Equation

A nonlinear wave phenomenon is the important area of scientific research, which many scientists in the past have studied about mathematical models explaining the wave behavior. There are mathematical models which describe the dynamic of wave behaviors–for example, the KdV equation, the RLW equation, the Rosenau equation, and many others [1]–[10]. The KdV equation has been used in very wide applications, such as magnetic fluid waves, ion sound waves, and longitudinal astigmatic waves [4]–[6]. The RLW equation, which was first proposed by Peregrine [7], [8] provides an explanation on a different situation of a nonlinear dispersive wave from the more classical KdV equation. The RLW equation is one of models which are encountered in many areas, e.g. ion–acoustic plasma waves, magnetohydro- dynamic plasma waves, and shallow water waves. Since the case of wave–wave and wave–wall interactions cannot be described by the KdV equation, Rosenau [9], [10] proposed an equation for describing the dynamic of dense discrete systems; it is known as the Rosenue equation. The existence and uniqueness of the solution for the Rosenau equation were proved by Park [11], [12]. For the further consideration of the nonlinear wave, a viscous term u xxt needs to be included:

Moreover, the logistic equation was published in 1838 by Pierre Franc¸ois Verhulst to model the growth of world population and was based on the assessment of population statistics available, complementing the theory of exponential growth of Thomas Robert Malthus. It can be applied to models with time dependence and has a wide application area since the inhibiting factors are taken into consideration. Furthermore, the logistic equation proved applicable in a series of probabilistic events and related to chaos theory and industrial and business dynamics [7, 25]. Recently, the logistic equation has been applied to describe the growth of populations both in the laboratory natural habitat, limiting the growth by influence of competition, mortality and fertility factors. However, the logistic model does not fit very well in cases where there are more complex relationships acting as interactions within food webs or several features that occur in most cases in nature dependencies[5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 22]. Aiming to generalize the logistic equation and give a better description for some of those events, El-Sayed, at all [5], studied the corresponding fractional-order logistic by a numerical analyze.

Effective Fokker-Planck equation for birhythmic modified van der Pol oscillator

Effective Fokker-Planck equation for birhythmic modified van der Pol oscillator

We have approached a theoretical description of the tem- poral evolution of the modified van der Pol oscillator with an additive Gaussian white noise in the region where birhythmic- ity (in the absence of noise) occurs. To get an analytical insight on this system we have used an explicit solution based on the phase-amplitude approximation of the Fokker-Planck equation to analytically derive the probability distributions. The activation energies associated to the switches between different attractors have been derived analytically and numeri- cally. We have found that the agreement is fairly good. The characteristics of the birhythmic properties in a modified van der Pol oscillator are strongly influenced by both the nonlin- ear coefficients a, b and the noise intensity D. The boundary of the existence of multi-limit-cycle solutions, in the paramet- ric (a,b)-plane, decreases with the increase of the noise inten- sity D. Finally, the analytic estimate of the stability of the two attractors varies with the control parameters (the dissipation a and b) in a way that resembles phase transitions: for most pa- rameters value the system is located around only one attractor, the other being visited with a vanishingly small probability. Only at special values of the control parameters the residence times are comparable, in agreement with experimental obser- vations of birhythmicity in Biological systems: the passage from an attractor to another only occurs by varying the exter- nal parameters and not under the influence of noise. 43,44

subsequent decreases over-time lagged inflation on the right-hand side, are significant. Columns (3) to (8) of Table 2 present panel estimates with time and fixed-effects for the various samples and two calendars of IT adoption described in Table 1. From column (3) to (4), I change from MSH’s to BS’s IT calendar – the one used by LY – to check how important it is to vary the dates of IT adoption. The different calendars of IT adoption make a quantitative difference, but not important enough to change the qualitative result that IT mattered . BS’s IT adoption dates reduce the IT direct impact on the average inflation level from -1.37 to -1.01 percentage points, or its implied cumulative effect from -2.28 to -1.68 percentage points. Anyway, the IT effect is still significantly important, different from LY’s irrelevance conclusion (in their Table 3, Panel A), and differences between columns (3) and (4) mainly reflect that my identification strategy of a one- year lag in policy effects matches better with MSH’s calendar.
