The main objective of this work is to accelerate the Maximum-Likelihood (ML) estimation procedure for radio interferometric direction dependent self-calibration. We introduce the OS-SAGE radio interferometric calibration method, as a combination of the Ordered-Subsets (OS) method with the Space Alternating Generalized Expectation maximization (SAGE)(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrine disorders accompanied with many metabolic syndromes. Use of herbal medicines has always been an option to treat a great number of diseases such as diabetes and its complications. In this study the liver-protective effects of hydroalcoholic extract of Allium hirtifolium on liver enzymes level(More)
BACKGROUND Atherosclerosis, which is a result of gradual deposition of lipids in the lower part of blood vessel endothelium, is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity around the world. It has been proved that some inflammatory blood markers such as fibrinogen can predict the risk for cardiovascular disease conditions, not only in cardiovascular(More)
Aims. This paper discusses the spectral occupancy for performing radio astronomy with the Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR), with a focus on imaging observations. Methods. We have analysed the radio-frequency interference (RFI) situation in two 24-h surveys with Dutch LOFAR stations, covering 30– 78 MHz with low-band antennas and 115–163 MHz with high-band(More)

—An efficient hybrid method is presented to obtain the current distribution of both non-uniformly linear and planar arrays by sampling the array factor of a desired radiation pattern. The proposed method provides Fourier coefficients and uses the Least Mean Square method (LMS) to solve the system of equations in order to obtain current distribution in(More)
LOFAR is the LOw-Frequency Radio interferometer ARray located at midlatitude (52 ∘ 53 ′ N). Here we present results on ionospheric structures derived from 29 LOFAR nighttime observations during the winters of 2012/2013 and 2013/2014. We show that LOFAR is able to determine differential ionospheric total electron content values with an accuracy better than(More)
BACKGROUND With the growing global population, it is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the demands for food and energy. A major portion of the food and energy is produced via agriculture and livestock activities. The objectives of this research are to gather information regarding the demographic features of farmers, previous poisoning, and the(More)
