Mathematical models of infectious diseases can provide important insight into our understanding of epidemiological processes, the course of infection within a host, the transmission dynamics in a host population, and formulation or implementation of infection control programs. We present a framework for modeling the dynamics of infectious diseases in(More)
The present work concerns with the static scheduling of jobs to parallel identical batch processors with incompatible job families for minimizing the total weighted tardiness. This scheduling problem is applicable in burn-in operations and wafer fabrication in semiconductor manufacturing. We decompose the problem into two stages: batch formation and batch(More)
In current dynamic business environments, meeting the customer due dates and avoiding delay penalties are very important. Our work concerns with the static scheduling of jobs to parallel identical batch processors for minimising the total weighted tardiness. It is assumed that the jobs are incompatible in respect of job families indicating that jobs from(More)
Dipicolinic acid (DPA) is an important chemical marker for the detection of bacterial spores. In this study, complexes of lanthanide series elements such as erbium, europium, neodymium, and terbium were prepared with pyrocatechol violet and effectively immobilized the pyrocatechol violet (PV)–metal complex on a filter paper using polyvinyl alcohol. These(More)
