BordbarDepartment of Physics, Shiraz University, Shiraz 71454, IranS. HosseiniDepartment of Physics, Shiraz University, Shiraz 71454, IranJournal Article20111016In this paper the lowest order constrained variational (LOCV) method has been used for calculation of liquid along different isentropic paths employing the Aziz potential. Some thermodynamic properties such as energy per particle, pressure, temperature, chemical potential, velocity of sound, adiabatic index and compressibility for normal liquid have been calculated. Our results indicate that the sound velocity is always less than the velocity of light in vacuum (c) showing that all calculated equations of state obey the causality condition. Finally, our calculations show that the adiabatic index is not constant and its value depends on both density and entropy of <br />the system.SpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611Two new species of Arbacioid echinoids (genus Goniopygus) from the Aptian sediments of Baghin area (Kerman, Iran)231237207210.22099/ijsts.2012.2072ENM.

Our previous study showed that the p-NP causes reduction in viability of the rats Bone<br />Marrow Mesenchymal Stem cells (MSCs). The aim of the present study was to investigate the mechanism of the cell death due to p-NP exposure. The cells, after 3rd passage were treated with 100μM p-NP for a period of 36 hrs, then using TUNEL, caspase and comet assay as well as fluorescent dye like Hochest, acridine orange and monodansylcadaverin (MDC) staining the mechanism of cell death was studied. The results of this study showed that the p-NP treated cells were TUNEL positive and also, activated caspase-3 enzyme in their cytoplasm was visualized. Hochest staining showed chromatin condensation and nuclei breakage, at which the nuclear breakage was further confirmed by comet assay. In addition, staining the cells with acridine orange revealed that the cytoplasm of the treated cells contained numerous vesicles. Furthermore, staining of the cells with MDC showed the presence of the double layer autophagic vacuoles. In conclusion, the induced cell death due to p-NP toxicity was determined to be caspase dependent apoptosis as well as autophagy.SpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611Interactive effects of food and salinity on the reproductive and growth indices of two Brachionus rotifer strains from Iran245250207410.22099/ijsts.2012.2074ENR.

P.O. Box 165, Dr. Beheshti Street, Urmia, IranJournal Article20110108Two Iranian strains of Brachionus rotifers were cultured under different food and salinity regimes. The rotifers<br />were fed with five algal types (freshwater and marine Chlorella vulgaris, Nannochloropsis occulata, Isochrysis<br />galbana and Scenedesmus obliquus) at three different salinities (5, 15 and 25 g/L) and their reproductive and growth parameters were assessed. The maximum number of ovigerous females (73 ± 7 ind/mL), population density (354 ± 3 ind/mL) and specific growth rate (0.75 ± 0.01 / day) were obtained for the rotifers fed with freshwater Chlorella. In Zbl strain, minimum growth rate (0.04 ± 0.05/ day) and population density (13 ± 4 ind/mL) were for the rotifers fed with Isochrysis at 25 g/L, while in Ba strain, population growth and density were null after feeding Scenedesmus at 5 g/L. The rotifer strains were differentially affected by salinity of medium, and Zbl and Ba strains had their maximum growth rates and population densities at 5 and 25 g/L, respectively. Analysis of variance showed significant effects of food type, salinity and their combined effects on all the estimated parameters, while rotifer strain and its interaction with food type and salinity significantly affected growth rate and population density of the rotifers (P < 0.05).SpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611Understanding the mechanism of stable phosphorus ylides derived from maleimide: a kinetic study251258207510.22099/ijsts.2012.2075ENM.

To determine the kinetic parameters of the reactions, they were monitored by UV spectrophotometery. The second order fits were automatically drawn and the values of the second order rate constant (k2) were automatically calculated using standard equations within the program. All reactions were repeated at different temperature range, the dependence of the second order rate constant (ln k2) and (ln k2/T) on reciprocal temperature was in a good agreement with Arrhenius and Eyring equations. This provided the relevant plots to calculate the activation parameters (Ea, H, S and G) of all reactions. Furthermore, useful information was obtained from studies of the effect of solvent, structure of reactants (dialkyl acetylenedicarboxylates) and also concentration of reactants on the reaction rates. The proposed mechanism was confirmed according to the obtained results and steady state approximation, and the first and third steps (k2, k3) of all reactions were recognized as rate determining and fast steps, respectively on the basis of experimental data.SpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611Non-abelian lovelock-born-infeld topological black holes259266207610.22099/ijsts.2012.2076ENN.

We investigate the properties of these solutions as well as their asymptotic behavior in various dimensions. The properties of these kinds of solutions are like the Einstein-Yang-Mills solutions. But the differences seem to appear in the role of the mass, charge and born-Infeld parameter β, in the solutions. For example, in Einstein-Yang-Mills theory the solutions with non-negative mass cannot present an extreme black hole while that of in Einstein-Yang-Mills-Born Infeld theory can. Also, the singularities in higher dimensional Einstein-Yang-Mills theory for non-negative mass are always spacelike, while depending on choosing the parameters, we can find timelike singularities in the similar case of Einstein-Yang-Mills-Born-Infeld theory. We also extend the solutions of Einstein to the case of Gauss- Bonnet and third order Lovelock gravities. It is shown that, these solutions in the limits of β0, and β , represent pure gravity and gravity coupled with Yang-Mills fields, respectively.SpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611Capacity and a classification of Finsler spaces267275207710.22099/ijsts.2012.2077ENB.

Box 71457-44776, Shiraz, IranJournal Article20111003In this paper, by definition of exponential map of the Lie groups the concept of exponential map of generalized Lie groups is introduced. This has a powerful generalization to generalized Lie groups which takes each line through the origin to an order product of some one-parameter subgroup. We show that the exponential map is a - map. Also, we prove some important properties of the exponential map for generalized Lie groups. Under the identification, it is shown that the derivative of the exponential map is the identity map. One of the most powerful applications of these exponential maps is to define generalized adjoint representation of a top space, so we show that this representation is a - map. Finally, invariant forms are introduced on a generalized Lie group. We provemthat every left invariant -form are introduced on a generalized Lie group with the finite number of identity elements is . At the end of this paper, for compact connected generalized Lie group with the finite number of identity elements and dimension , we show that every left invariant -form on is right invariant -formSpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611On generalized conformally recurrent Kaehlerian Weyl spaces299304208010.22099/ijsts.2012.2080ENF.

This test is failed for BIBDs when ties data occur. An adjusted version of Durbin rank test for this kind of data is given to solve this problem. Chi-square approximation, which is commonly used for this test, is not adequate for small BIBDs. For this case, we investigate permutation approach for adjusted Durbin rank test. Also, in this study the tests used in BIBDs are compared by simulation study for tied data, which have not been discussed in the sensory literature.SpringerIranian Journal of Science and Technology (Sciences)1028-627636320120611Moments of the present value of total dividends and related problems in the risk model with delayed claims311325208210.22099/ijsts.2012.2082ENZ. WeiDepartment of Science, NanChang Institute of Technology, NanChang, P. R. ChinaX. Jie-huaDepartment of Science, NanChang Institute of Technology, NanChang, P. R. ChinaJournal Article20110626In this paper, a compound binomial risk model in the presence of a constant dividend barrier is studied. Two types of individual claims, main claims and by-claims, are defined, where every by-claim is induced by the main claim randomly and may be delayed for one time period with a certain probability. In the evaluation of the moments of the present value of dividends, the interest rates are assumed to follow a Markov chain with finite state space. A system of differential equations with certain boundary conditions satisfied by the nth moment of the present value of total dividend payments prior to ruin, given the initial environment state, is derived. We arrive at a general formula which allows us to evaluate the moments of the total discounted dividends recursively in terms of the lower order moments. Assuming the claim sizes are Kh distributed or the claim size distributions have finite support, we are able to solve for all necessary components in the general recursive formula and obtain some other results of interest. We present several numerical examples which illustrate the applicabilities of our main results and the effects of the by-claims on the moments of the present value of dividends.
