It also discusses the historical background of distance education in Nigeria as well as the operations of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) as the first federal University in… (More)
Assembly sequence planning (ASP) becomes one of the major challenges in product design and manufacturing. A good assembly sequence leads to reduced costs and duration in the manufacturing process. However, assembly sequence planning is known to be a classical NP-hard combinatorial optimization problem; ASP with many product components becomes more difficult… (More)
SUMMARY: In today's digital economy, the construction industry is at the verge of a technological revolution. Myriad technologies are promising innovative solutions to age-old problems of coordination and delivering projects on-time, on-budget and to clients' specifications, through what has come to be known as integrated project delivery. However, there is… (More)
We determine the sufficient conditions for subordination for new classes of normalized analytic functions with applications in fractional calculus in complex domain. 1 Introduction and preliminaries.
Histological section of YBR/EiJ mouse eye displaying hallmarks of glaucoma, including optic nerve excavation and thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer. The article by Nair et al. on page 863 presents a detailed characterization of YBR/EiJ inbred mice as a new inherited model of glaucoma. In YBR mice, two genetic loci act through distinct pathogenic… (More)
—One of the major points of interest in software engineering nowadays is how to ensure applications configuration files' security. In fact, they very often contain confidential information as database connection credentials, thereby providing a vulnerability point to these applications, for those files have their information clearly written. Some studies… (More)
