Title : Gregus Type Fixed Point Theorems Satisfying Strict Contractive Condition of Integral Type
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 1−8

Abstract: In the present paper, we prove some common fixed point theorems of Gregus type for two pairs of self mappings satisfying strict contractive condition of integral type by using the weak subsequential continuity property with compatibility of type $(E)$ in metric spaces. Our results improve some previous known results and relevant literature.

Keywords: Gregus type fixed point, weakly subsequentially continuous, compatible of type (E).

Title : Mathematical Model for Predicting Time of a Shared Common Ancestor
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 9−18

Abstract: Accurate and efficient model development in the field of evolutionary biology is becoming increasingly important to study phylogenetic relationships. Studying these phylogenetic relationships can provide greater insight into areas such as drug development, analyzing disease transmission, and studying the host-pathogen evolutionary relationship. This study uses the idea of a transition matrix to predict how long ago two species shared a common ancestor. Using this concept and various linear algebraic ideas, a mathematical model that simulated amino acid mutations was developed, and it was implemented in Python to perform trials. The main result of the development of the model was a matrix containing the expected values for the number of years ago two amino acids were the same. Simulations of the model can be run in Python multiple times and the average of the values obtained gives an estimate of how many years ago two amino acids were the same. These represent the number of years ago the species shared a common ancestor. The result varies based on the species data analyzed. This model provides a foundation for development of more complex models that enhance phylogenetic tree development. As stated previously, this can have substantial impacts on biotechnology and biomedical sciences, which often rely on analyzing these evolutionary relationships.

Keywords: Transition matrix, Amino Acids, Probability, Mutations, Sequences, Simulations, Expected value.

Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 19−26

Abstract: In this paper, we introduce the concept of $k-$hub set and $k-$hub number of a graph. We compute the $k-$hub number for some standard graphs, also we determined the $k-$hub number for corona of two graphs. Some bounds of $k-$hub number are established. Finally we characterize the structure of all graphs for which $h_k(G)=1$.

Title : On Permutation Labeling of Graphs
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 27−33

Abstract: An injective function $f:V(G)\rightarrow{}\{1,2,\ldots,|V(G)|\}$ is said to be permutation labeling if each edge $uv$ is assigned with label $\Perm{f(u)}{f(v)}= \ \frac{(f(u))!}{| f(u)-f(v)|! } \ (f(u)>f(v))$ are all distinct. A graph which admits permutation labeling is called permutation graph. In this paper we prove that wheel graph, restricted square and degree splitting graph of bistar graph are permutation graphs. We also proved that arbitrary super subdivision of path graph, star graph and cycle graph are permutation graphs.

Keywords: Permutation labeling, Wheel graph, Bistar graph, Arbitrary super subdivision.

Title : To Study Linear with Integer Programming and Solving Multi-Objective Optimization
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 35−39

Abstract: Here we present a new exact approach for solving Multi-Objective Optimization with. Linear programs and integer programs are optimization problems with linear impartial functions and linear constraints. These problems are actual general: linear programs can be used to express an inclusive range of problems such as two-part corresponding and network stream, while integer programs can express an even larger range of problems, including all of those in model of operation research. We define each of these formalisms in turn.

Keywords: Linear Programming, Integer Programming, multi-objective Optimization, approximation algorithms.

Title : Effects of Item Parameter Distributions on Test Information Function
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 41−50

Abstract: Test information function (TIF) plays an important role in designing a test. The TIF does not only depend on the logistic model such as the 1PL, 2PL and 3PL logistic models, but it also on the parameter distributions of the model. In this study we conducted simulations using the R statistical software on different examinee sizes and different exam length, and we compare the results when using uniform parameter distribution and normal parameter distribution. The findings of this study illustrate the following: First, when using item parameters that are all uniformly distributed the obtained test information function is significantly small compared to the test information function obtained when we use item parameters that all follow a normal distribution. Second, the test information function increases as the length of the exam increases when we use item parameters that are all normally distributed. Third, this study also suggest great flexibility in writing an exam as we can choose the item parameter distribution depending on the goals of the test.

Keywords: Item-Response Theory (IRT), Item Information Function, Test Information Function, one-, two-, and three-parameter models.

Title : Optimal Ordering and Screening Policy for Perishable Items with Imperfect Quality
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 51−61

Abstract: In reality, perishable products also contain defective ones before storage due to uncertainties during production process. In order to reduce the loss caused by the defective products, an inspection process is implemented by retailers. However, the screening is not always perfect due to the limited technical level. In view of the above, a retailer's perishable inventory model with defective items is established in this article. Two types of inspection errors, non-100\% screening and sales returns are all considered in the proposed model. The objective of the model is to minimize the retailer's expected cost per unit time and to find the optimal retail price, the screening rate and the order quantity. Numerical example and sensitivity analysis are provided to illustrate the presented model and provide some managerial insights.

Keywords: Inventory strategy, Deteriorating items, Defective products, Screening.

Title : Optimal Distribution of Players into Two Alliances in Mis\`{e}re Subtraction Game
Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 73−82

Abstract: In combinatorial game theory, multi-player games expands on the research of two-person games and are widely applicable to computer science and business. The given paper studies the mis\`{e}re version of the subtraction game (Nim with one pile of counters) for two alliances extending the results of Kelly in \cite{2,3}; Liu and Zhao in \cite{5}, Liu and Wang in \cite{6} and Suetsugu in \cite{7}. The main result of the current paper determines the optimal distribution of the players among two alliances that minimizes $N$, the smallest number of counters such that the larger alliance has a winning strategy for all the games with more than $N$ counters.

Keywords: Multi-player impartial game, Mis\`{e}re Subtraction game, Alliances.

Volume, Issue, Year : 9(1)(2021)
Pages : 95−104

Abstract: An analysis is made to study a three-dimensional boundary-layer flow of non-newtonian fluid over a porous media. The governing partial differential equations of momentum are transformed into self-similar non-linear ordinary differential equations by using new form of suitable similarity transformations. The obtain equations are then should by using shooting method. The flow phenomena is characterized by the power-law index `n', permeability of porous media `$\omega $' porosity parameter `$\phi $' effective viscosity `$\lambda $', three-dimensionality parameters `$\alpha $'. The numerical results of the velocity profiles are obtained and displayed graphically.
