The main aim of the project is to develop a new efficient optimization method, called „Teaching–Learning-Based Optimization (TLBO)‟, for the optimization of mechanical design problems. The process of TLBO is divided into two parts. The first part consists of the „Teacher Phase‟ and the second part consists of the „Learner Phase‟. „Teacher Phase‟ means(More)
This study investigated the attitude of health personnel who were working for the National Leprosy Eradication Programme (NLEP) in India to their leprosy patients. These personnel were studied individually and as homogeneous groups so that comparisons were possible within and among the groups, and between the groups in different regions who were conducting(More)

The sample size of the subjects selected for the study consists of 75 Engineers, 110 Supervisors and 675 Workers in the selected manufacturing industries in kerala, India. Seven factors were identified with the(More)
Accurate short-term prediction of wind speed is one of the critical issues faced by wind farm industry so as to plan trading strategies and managing power distribution. In this paper, we demonstrate that empirical mode decomposition (EMD) of the wind speed time series significantly improves prediction accuracy of nonlinear prediction tools. While EMD(More)
A statistical analysis was performed on three thousand and eight hundred soil sample data from Thrissur district. Soil pH, Electrical conductivity, Organic Carbon, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur, Zinc, Boron, Iron, Copper and Manganese data were analyzed. Correlation analysis, ANOVA and Principal Component analysis were performed on the(More)
The p38 MAPK family of proteins comprised of four members; p38α, p38β, p38γ, and p38δ. All p38 MAPKs are strongly activated by environmental stresses and inflammatory cytokines. MAPKs have been shown to play a pivotal role in diverse diseases, including cancer. Majority of studies have focussed on targeting p38 MAPK isoform alpha. However, the report(More)

Maximisation of influence propagation is a key ingredient to any viral marketing or socio-political campaigns. However, it is an NP-hard problem, and various approximate algorithms have been suggested to address the issue, though not largely successful. In this paper, we propose a bio-inspired approach to select the initial set of nodes which is significant(More)
