Box 74811-71466, Shiraz, IranJournal Article20130205In this article we implement an operational matrix of fractional integration for Legendre polynomials. We proposed an algorithm to obtain an approximation solution for fractional differential equations, described in Riemann-Liouville sense, based on shifted Legendre polynomials. This method was applied to solve linear multi-order fractional differential equation with initial conditions, and the exact solutions obtained for some illustrated examples. Numerical results reveal that this method gives ideal approximation for linear multi-order fractional differential equations.http://ijsts.shirazu.ac.ir/article_1778_88564c8b9316dd15c7f33249df8d92e1.pdfSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627637420131216First record of Anaciaeshna jaspidea and Epophthalmia

Representatives were collectedfrom Gujjo, District Thatta (Sindh) in August 2008 and were identified as <em>Anaciaeshna jaspidea </em>(Burmeister). The second genus was <em>Epophthalmia</em> (Family <em>Corduliidae</em>), medium to large sized, well-built and very fast flying dragonflies. <em>Epophthalmia vittata vittata</em> Burmeister (Family <em>Corduliidae</em>) was collected from Java Dam, Rawalpindi and Dhok Tallian Dam near Chakwal. Individuals of this genus were found maneuvering near the peripheries of small dams.

SalehiDepartment of Physics, Shahid Chamran University, Ahvaz, IranM. AryadoustDepartment of Physics, Shahid Chamran University, Ahvaz, IranM. Zargar ShoushtariDepartment of Physics, Shahid Chamran University, Ahvaz, IranJournal Article20130415The purpose of this paper is the<em> </em>generalization of structure factor for rods by polygon section in two dimensional phononic crystals. If we use the plane wave expansion method (PWE) for the propagation of acoustic waves in 2D phononic crystals, structure factor will be an important quantity. In order to confirm the obtained relations, we have calculated the band structure for XY and Z vibration modes in 2D phononic crystals and the propagation of bulk acoustic waves (BAW) are considered. In addition, the effect of sides’ number on the band structure and the complete band gaps width are investigated. Phononic crystals studied in this paper are composites medium of a square lattice consisting of parallel nickel rods embedded in epoxy. The frequency is calculated by PWE in the condition of elastic rigidity to the solid inclusions. The results showed that, when the section of rods have 2n+2 (n is even) and 2n+1 by increasing sides number of the rod sections, the bands of XY mode shift to lower-frequency, the bands are smoother and the width of the band gap increases,<em> </em>but the band of Z mode has not changed by n variations.<em> </em>Moreover, when the section of rods have 2n+2 (n is odd) by increasing sides number of rod sections, the band structure of XY mode changes slightly and the width of the complete band gap is decreased. This confirms the effect of lattice symmetry on the complete band gap width. But, the band structure of Z mode has not changed.http://ijsts.shirazu.ac.ir/article_1782_dd51d7a1c860a7426a5a078233660155.pdfSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627637420131216Theoretical Calculation of Energies of Projectile like Fragments in 76Ge (635 MeV) + 198Pt Deep-Inelastic Collisions463465178310.22099/ijsts.2013.1783ENI.

NikoonejadDepartment of Earth Sciences , Science & Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Marvdasht, IranJournal Article20120507The Zagros Fold-and-Thrust Belt is tectonically active and often has active faults with insensible and slow motions. Determining the rate of movement and displacement in these faults requires very precise measurements. One of the measurement methods of fault movements is using geodetic and micro-geodetic studies. This research is focused on one of the active faults in the north of Shiraz city, Fars province called Darvazeh Quran fault in this study. In order to determine the deformation matrix, the local networks are preferred. Deforming area is normally covered by four control points. These points constitute a geodetic network and their location or structure is defined by the topographic and geological parameters. The results show that the obtained displacement vector is from SE to NW with a dextral strike-slip creep. Deformation matrix indicated 4mm±6ppm displacement per year and elongation changes of network have an ascending trend into time.http://ijsts.shirazu.ac.ir/article_1784_d4db28206faee693fc3eab9bb5a043c2.pdfSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627637420131216Numerical study of some nonlinear wave equations

In this study, pad morphology and cytology in <em>Litoria caerulea</em> is described using SEM, TEM and light microscopy. At the gross anatomical level, toe-pads in hind limbs were subdivided into medial and lateral parts by two large grooves. Semi-thin sections also showed that the toe-pad epidermis in hind limbs consisted of four layers with a cuboidal outermost layer, while the epidermis of forelimbs consisted of 3 layers with a columnar outermost layer. SEM study revealed two basic shapes of epidermal cells arranged very regularly across the surface of the pad: pentagonal and hexagonal. The pentagonal mainly occupied the most distal part of the toe. Three types of mucous-secreting pores were also seen in between the epithelial cells.http://ijsts.shirazu.ac.ir/article_1787_f9d4389fc0a906d5e0d2a317e43608bb.pdfSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627637420131216A novel hybrid spectral-variational iteration method (H-S-VIM) for solving nonlinear equations arising in heat transfer501512178810.22099/ijsts.2013.1788ENM.

The merit of this method is that it does not require the solution of any linear or nonlinear system of equations unlike spectral method. Furthermore the proposed method is easy to implement and computationally very attractive. Here, H-S-VIM is used to solve an unsteady nonlinear convective-radiative equation containing two small parameters, and . It is observed that H-S-VIM may be implemented on other strongly nonlinear models of physical nature.http://ijsts.shirazu.ac.ir/article_1788_1b77a1b3f9d68668ad16d8bcbe890805.pdfSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627637420131216A new algorithm for solving one-dimensional Schrödinger

The analytical solution is shown in a series form in the reproducing kernel space and the approximate solution is constructed by truncating the series. The convergence of the approximate solution to the analytical solution is also proved. The method is examined for the single soliton solution and interaction of two solitons. Numerical experiments show that the proposed method is of satisfactory accuracy and preserves the conservation laws of charge and energy. The numerical results are compared with both the analytical and numerical solutions of some earlier papers in the literature.http://ijsts.shirazu.ac.ir/article_1789_803ec0e30640a13836a70e6c05e307f9.pdfSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627637420131216Approximations in (bi-)hyperideals of Semihypergroups527532179010.22099/ijsts.2013.1790ENR.
