to collect papers on one topic and publish in the form of a book. Each paper has been refereed by at least three experts actively engaged in " Ranked Set Sampling ". This book is the first in the series and we hope that in future, we shall be collecting papers and publishing in the form of books. PREFACE Recently attention is being paid to the basic(More)
BACKGROUND According to the World Reference Laboratory for FMD, a new subtype of FMDV serotype A was detected in Iran in 2005. This subtype was designated A/IRN/2005, and rapidly spread throughout Iran and moved westwards into Saudi Arabia and Turkey where it was initially detected from August 2005 and subsequently caused major disease problems in the(More)
In this paper we suggest three classes of regression-cum-ratio estimators for estimating population mean of variable of interest for two-phase sampling using multi-auxiliary variables for full information, partial information and no information cases. The expressions for mean square errors are derived. Theoretical comparison is given. Special cases of(More)
The data analysis of occupationally exposed medical workers in Nuclear Medicine (NM), Radiotherapy (RT) and Diagnostic Radiology (DR) at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Oncology (INMOL), Pakistan is presented for the time interval (2007–2011). The whole-body exposure doses of the workers were measured by using the Film Badge Dosimetry technique. The(More)

BACKGROUND Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is endemic in Pakistan and causes huge economic losses. This work focus on the Landhi Dairy Colony (LDC), located in the suburbs of Karachi. LDC is the largest Buffalo colony in the world, with more than 300,000 animals (around 95% buffaloes and 5% cattle, as well as an unknown number of sheep and goats). Each month(More)
— The design of a miniature quadrupole lens based on metallized glass electrodes mounted in two anisotropically etched silicon mounts that are separated by precision spacers is described. The analysis of conventional quadrupole lenses is first reviewed. The fabrication process is then described, and the analysis techniques are applied to the new geometry.(More)
Classification is an important task in data mining. Classification is about organizing data into relevant nodes in taxonomy. In scientific domain, classification of documents to predefined category (ies) is an important research problem and supports number of tasks such as: information retrieval, finding experts, recommender systems etc. In Computer(More)
Semantic cache enhances the capability of conventional (page/tuple) cache by adopting the dynamic strategy to group the contents and semantics of already processed queries. Query processing and cache management are two major activities for semantic caching. Semantic caching demands efficient, correct and complete algorithms to process incoming queries.(More)
The goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of intermediate megavoltage (3-MV) photon beams on SBRT lung cancer treatments. To start with, a 3-MV virtual beam was commissioned on a commercial treatment planning system based on Monte Carlo simulations. Three optimized plans (6-MV, 3-MV and dual energy of 3- and 6-MV) were generated for 31 lung cancer(More)
