    Non-recursive and explicit expressions for calculating the number of ways to distribute n indistinguishable balls into m distinguishable bins with different capacities have been derived. Similar expression for the special case where bins have the same capacity was previously reported in the literature. Theses expressions can be used to study network graphs with grid structures. In this line, we have derived some topological properties of meshes, furnishing some expressions to calculate the surface area and volume of radial spheres in the mesh network. © 2003 IEEE

    Constraints are presented on the total width of the recently discovered Higgs boson, ΓH, using its relative on-shell and off-shell production and decay rates to a pair of Z bosons, where one Z boson decays to an electron or muon pair, and the other to an electron, muon, or neutrino pair. The analysis is based on the data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2011 and 2012, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.1fb -1 at a center-of-mass energy s=7TeV and 19.7fb -1 at s=8TeV. A simultaneous maximum likelihood fit to the measured kinematic distributions near the resonance peak and above the Z-boson pair production threshold leads to an upper limit on the Higgs boson width of ΓH...

    The matching basis in field extentions is in-troduced by S. Eliahou and C. Lecouvey in [2]. In this paper we define the minimal and maximal linear matching property for field extensions and prove that if K is not algebraically closed, then K has minimal linear matching property. In this paper we will prove that algebraic number fields have maximal linear matching property. We also give a shorter proof of a result established in [6] on the fundamental theorem of algebra

    Adsorption and desorption of methane by activated carbon (AC) at constant temperature and at various pressures were investigated. The effect of moisture was also studied. A volumetric method was used, up to 40 bar, at a temperature of 273.5 K. Results of a dry AC sample were compared with those obtained from a moist sample and two different ACs with different physical and surface properties were used. As expected, the results showed that the existence of moisture, trapped in the AC pores, could lead to a decrease in the amount of methane adsorbed and a decrease in the amount of methane delivered during desorption. To model the experimental results, a large variety of adsorption isotherms...

    , Article Molecular Physics ; Volume 104, Issue 20-21 , 2006 , Pages 3269-3280 ; 00268976 (ISSN) Parsafar, G. A ; Shokouhi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    A new hard-core potential model was recently used to calculate thermodynamic properties of some model fluids, including equilibrium properties, such as compressibility factor and internal energy. A Lennard-Jones (LJ) like potential has been used to modify the repulsive part of the potential. The modified potential contains five parameters, namely, R, and HS. The parameter is the tail of the attractive branch whose value changes from zero to one. In this work, we have chosen = 1 to make the potential continuous at separation r = R, where the parameter R is the well width. R lies in the range 1.2 to 2.5, and R = 1.3 was found to be the best value for all real gases studied. The parameter is...

    B The combined influence of both melt filtration and cooling rate on the microstructure and mechanical properties of A356 cast alloy was studied. A step casting model with five different thicknesses was used to obtain different cooling rates. The effect of melt filtration was studied by using 10 and 20 pores per inch (PPI) ceramic foam filters in the runner. Results showed that secondary dendrite arm spacing decreased from 80 μm to 34 μm with increasing cooling rate. Use of ceramic foam filters in the runner led to the reduction of melt velocity and surface turbulence, which prevented the incorporation of oxide films and air in the melt and consequently had an overall beneficial effect on...
