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 ...
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 ), ...
Basin of Attraction through Invariant Curves and Dominant Functions
We study a second-order difference equation of the form 𝑧ₙ₊₁= 𝑧ₙ𝐹(𝑧ₙ₋₁) + ℎ, where both 𝐹(𝑧) and 𝑧𝐹(𝑧) are decreasing. We consider a set of invariant curves at ℎ = 1 and use it to characterize the behaviour of ...
All the World's a Stage
(National Association of Teachers of Singing, 2015)
Gut Bacteria of Water Monitor Lizard (Varanus salvator) Are a Potential Source of Antibacterial Compound(s)
For the past few decades, there has been limited progress in the development of novel antibacterials. Previously, we postulated that the gut microbiota of animals residing in polluted environments are a forthcoming supply ...
Translation and the Quest for Meaning: Adūnīs and Yūsuf al-Khāl's Translation of T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land
(Arabic Translators International, 2018-04)
This article examines some Arabic translations of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land with special reference to Adunis (͑Ali Ahmad Sa'id) and Yusuf al-Khal's al-Ard al-kharab (1958). Translation requires a close reading of an ...
Convergence rate of regime-switching trees
Considering a general class of regime-switching geometric random walks and a broad class of piecewise twice differentiable payoff functions, we show that convergence of option prices occurs at a speed of order 𝒪 (𝑛-ᵝ), ...
