Drivers and challenges for implementing ISO 14001 environmental management systems in an emerging Gulf Arab country
Worldwide, ISO 14001 certification for organizations has become the norm, but the Arab world accounts for an insignificant portion of all the certified organizations. There is a dearth of research on environmental management ...
Hyper-Consumption to Circular Economy in the United Arab Emirates: Discarding the Disposable and Cherishing the Valuable
(ARMG Publishing, 2020-10-05)
Overconsumption of resources and consumer items is an important driver for environmental degradation and climate change. Malls, shopping, and conspicuous consumption are deeply ingrained in the local values and the global ...
On phi-Mori rings
(University of Houston, 2006)
A commutative ring R is said to be a phi-ring if its nilradical Nil(R) is both prime and comparable with each principal ideal. The name is derived from the natural map phi from the total quotient ring T(R) to R localized ...
Market Efficiency of Floating Exchange Rate Systems: Some Evidence from Pacific-Asian Countries
This paper examines the random walk hypothesis (RWH) and the martingale difference hypothesis (MDH) for the Australian dollar and five Asian emerging currencies relative to three benchmark currencies. We use Wright’s (2000) ...
A Simple Model for the Fields of a Chirped Laser Pulse With Application to Electron Laser Acceleration
(Frontiers in Physics, 2019-12)
A simple model is introduced for the fields of a chirped laser pulse. As an application, dynamics of laser-acceleration of a single electron by the fields of a pulse, with a sin4 envelope, is investigated. Multi-GeV energy ...

Pharmacognostic evaluation of Terminalia chebula standard extracts and finished products
The different commercial samples of Terminalia chebula (T. chebula) standard extracts and finished products were taken for elemental analysis studies and were evaluated by ICP-OES and compared with standard reference data. ...
A European option general first-order error formula
We study the value of European security derivatives in the Black-Scholes model, when the underlying asset 𝛏 is approximated by random walks 𝛏(𝑛). We obtain an explicit error formula, up to a term of order 𝒪(𝑛⁻³/² ), ...
The eﬀect of maps permutation on the global attractor of a periodic Beverton-Holt model
Consider a p-periodic diﬀerence equation xn+1 = fn(xn) with a global attractor. How does a permutation [fσ(p−1), . . . , fσ(1), fσ(0)] of the maps aﬀect the global attractor? In this paper, we limit this general question ...
Stability and bifurcation analysis of a discrete-time predator-prey model with strong Allee effect
(Taylor & Francis, 2020-03-16)
In this paper, we investigate the impact of Allee effect on the stability of a discrete-time predator-prey model with a non-monotonic functional response. The proposed model supports the coexistence of two steady states, ...
