      Hassan, Mohamed; Abusara, Ayah Mahmoud; Shehabeldin, Menatalla Diaaeldin; Ismail, Mahmoud H. (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 phi-Dedekind rings and phi-Krull rings 

      Badawi, Ayman; Anderson, David F. (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 phi-Mori rings 

      Badawi, Ayman; Lucas, Thomas G. (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 ...
    • On Studying the Effectiveness of Extended Finite State Machine Based Test Selection Criteria 

      Jadoon, Noshad Khan (2015-07)
      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 ...
