Synthetic seeds technology is a potential tool for an efficient and cost-effective clonal propagation system. In the present study, synthetic seeds were produced by encapsulating nodal segments (synthetic or synseeds) of Ruta graveolens in calcium alginate gel. The best gel complex was achieved using 3 % sodium alginate and 100 mM CaCl2.2H2O. Maximum(More)
This paper presents the development of a Pashto Spoken Digits database for the automatic speech recognition research. This is, to the best of author's knowledge, the first Pashto isolated digits database. The database consists of Pashto digits from zero (sefer) to hundred (sul) uttered by sixty speakers, 30 male and 30 female. The speakers included are(More)
The low frequency sub bands of Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) are mostly used for recognition purposes. In this paper, we propose that frequency sub bands other than low frequency sub bands contain discriminative information and can be more helpful in recognition purposes. As a result, the hypothesis was checked on the(More)
The PRR on Gender and Development Working Paper Series disseminates the findings of work in progress to encourage the exchange of ideas about the Policy Research Report. The papers carry the names of the authors and should be cited accordingly. The findings, interpretations, and conclusions are the author's own and do not necessarily represent the view of(More)
Gokhale and Trivedi (1998) have proposed the Log-logistic software reliability growth model that can capture the increasing/ decreasing nature of the failure occurrence rate per fault. In this paper, we will first show that a Log-logistic testing-effort function (TEF) can be expressed as a software development/testing-effort expenditure curve. We(More)
In this paper, two problems of optimal resource allocation to modules during testing phase are studied: (1) maximization of the number of faults removed when the amount of testing-effort is fixed, and (2) maximization of the number of faults removed satisfying a certain percentage of initial faults to be removed with a fixed amount of testing-effort. These(More)
We report on the first measurement of the triangular v3, quadrangular v4, and pentagonal v5 charged particle flow in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(s(NN)) = 2.76  TeV measured with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. We show that the triangular flow can be described in terms of the initial spatial anisotropy and its fluctuations, which provides(More)
Measurements of cross sections of inelastic and diffractive processes in proton–proton collisions at LHC energies were carried out with the ALICE detector. The fractions of diffractive processes in inelastic collisions were determined from a study of gaps in charged particle pseudora-pidity distributions: for single diffraction (diffractive mass
As the Small Island Developing States of the Caribbean prepare to take climate change adaptation measures, there is a distinct possibility that the most vulnerable groups, especially the poor, women, indigenous, elderly, and children in rural and coastal communities are at risk of being marginalized. It is necessary to take into consideration the adaptation(More)
