Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC)
(20150201)Depletion of fossil fuels and gasoline, and their effect on the global climate, necessitate the need for an alternative source of energy. Approximately 170,000 TW of solar radiation fall on the earth’s surface and is not ... 
Offshore Wind Farms
(201611)Reliance on nonrenewable resources will cause major economic and environmental damage. Comparing with onshore wind farms, offshore winds tend to flow at higher speeds than onshore winds, and thus it allows turbines to ... 
Oil and Water Separation Technique: An Application of Ultrasonic Vibration Technology
(201611)Currently there are multiple techniques that are used to separate and purify oil water, these two techniques are quite able to reach high product purities making the a viable component of a burgeoning refinery plant however ... 
Oil Removal From Produced Water Using Natural Materials
(201406)The oil and gas industry has had to deal with a massive amount of waste water as a biproduct of the exploration of oil and gas. This waste water referred to as produced water (PW) and the amount of PW increases with the ... 
Oman's Labour Force: An Analysis of Gender in Management.
(Emerald, 201411)Purpose  The purpose of this paper is to investigate the state of affairs in the Sultanate of Oman for the presence (or absence) of women in senior and managerial roles in private companies. The study also investigates ... 
Omani Teachers' Attitude Toward Classroom Research
(200606)Although there has been a lot of research done to investigate teachers' attitudes toward classroom research, there has been little research, if any, in the Gulf area, and especially in Oman. In fact, classroom research is ... 
On Efficient Channel Modeling for Video Transmission over Cognitive Radio Networks
(Springer, 2016)This paper investigates the problem of video transmission over cognitive radio networks with the objective of maintaining continuous video playback while gracefully degrading the quality of the reconstructed video sequences, ... 
On phiDedekind rings and phiKrull rings
(University of Houston, 2005)The purpose of this paper is to introduce two new classes of rings that are closely related to the classes of Dedekind domains and Krull domains. Let H = {R  R is a commutative ring with 1 and Nil(R) is a divided prime ... 
On phiMori rings
(University of Houston, 2006)A commutative ring R is said to be a phiring 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 ... 
On Some Applications of the Maximum Principles to a Variety of Elliptic and Parabolic Problems
(201907)One of the most important and useful tools used in the study of partial differential equations is the maximum principle. This principle is a natural extension to higher dimensions of an elementary fact of calculus: any ... 
On some bounds for frequencies of membranes and plates.
(202005)The problem of optimizing a domain dependent functional, while keeping a domain’s measure (its volume, perimeter, etc.) fixed, is called an isoperimetric problem. The isoperimetric inequalities have a long history in ... 
On Studying the Effectiveness of Extended Finite State Machine Based Test Selection Criteria
(201507)Automatic test derivation from formal specifications offers a rigorous discipline to functional conformance testing. In various application domains, such as communication protocols and other reactive systems, the specification ... 
On the accuracy of private forecasts of inflation and growth in Brazil
(2015)This study evaluates the accuracy of the privatesector forecasts of inflation and growth in industrial production collected by the Brazilian Central Bank (BCB). In addition to examining directional accuracy, we utilize ... 
On the Causal Link between Financial Development and Economic Growth: Case of Jordan
(American University of Sharjah, 20140508)This paper empirically examines the causal relation between financial development and economic growth in the case of Jordan for the period 1965 to 2004. That is, the paper attempts to provide answers to the following ... 
On the periodic logistic equation
(Elsevier, 2006)We show that the 𝒑periodic logistic equation 𝒳ₙ₊₁ = μₙ mod 𝒑𝒳ₙ(1  𝒳ₙ) has cycles (periodic solutions) of minimal periods 1; 𝒑; 2𝒑; 3𝒑; …. Then we extend Singer’s theorem to periodic difference equations, and use ... 
On The Unit Dot Product Graph Of A Commutative Ring.
(201601)In 2015, Ayman Badawi (Badawi, 2015) introduced the dot product graph associated to a commutative ring A. Let A be a commutative ring with nonzero identity, 1 n < 1 be an integer, and R =A x A x ... x A (n times). We ... 
On weakly 2absorbing ideals of commutative rings
(University of Houston, 2013)Let R be a commutative ring with identity 1 not equal to 0. In this paper, we introduce the concept of a weakly 2absorbing ideal. A proper ideal I of R is called a weakly 2absorbing ideal of R if whenever abc is not equal ... 
OnRoad Charging of Electric Vehicles
(20140105)Aiming to promote green technology and reduce the CO2 footprint on the atmosphere, many transportation systems are adopting the use of electric vehicles that utilize electrical, rather than chemical, energy to generate the ... 
One Text, Two Receptions: Mahfouz's Children of the Alley
(201312)Received wisdom in translation studies tells us that both source and target texts should enjoy the same reception by the source and target cultures. However, Mahfouz's Children of the Alley has been negatively received in ... 
OneHourAhead Wind Power Forecast Using Hybrid Grey Models
(Inderscience, 2016)This paper proposes two hybrid greybased shortterm wind power prediction techniques: GM(1,1)ARMA and GM(1,1)NARnet. These techniques are combined with ARMA models and nonlinear autoregressive neural network (NARnet) ...
