  1. Title: Reliability Modelling, Prediction and Analysis of Complex Systems

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Dr. Mahesh Kumar, Professor (Assistant), Department of Mathematics, National Institute of Technology (NIT) Calicut (an institute of national importance, under MHRD, Govt. of India), P.O. NIT Calicut-673601, INDIA, Email: mahesh@nitc.ac.in; www.nitc.ac.in

A brief description and background

Reliability, as a human attribute, has been praised for a very long time. For technical systems, however, the reliability concept has not been applied for more than some 60 years. It emerged with a technological meaning just after World War I and was then used in connection with comparing operational safety of one-, two-, and four-engine airplanes. The reliability was measured as the number of accidents per hour of flight time.

At the beginning of the 1930s, Walter Shewhart, Harold F. Dodge, and Harry G. Romig laid down the theoretical basis for utilizing statistical methods in quality control of industrial products. Such methods were, however, not brought into use to any great extent until the beginning of World War II. Products that were composed of a large number of parts often did not function, despite the fact that they were made up of individual high-quality components.

In the 1970s interest increased, in the United States as well as in other parts of the world, in risk and safety aspects connected to the building and operation of nuclear power plants. In the United States, a large research commission, led by Professor Norman Rasmussen was set up to analyze the problem. The multimillion dollar project resulted in the so-called Rasmussen report, WASH- 1400 (NUREG-75/014). Despite its weaknesses, this report represents the first serious safety analysis of so complicated a system as a nuclear power plant.

Similar work has also been carried out in Europe and Asia. In the majority of industries a lot of effort is presently put on the analysis of risk and reliability problems. The same is true in Norway, particularly within the offshore oil industry. The offshore oil and gas development in the North Sea is presently progressing into deeper and more hostile waters, and an increasing number of remotely operated subsea production systems are put into operation. The importance of the reliability of subsea systems is in many respects parallel to the reliability of space crafts. A low reliability cannot be compensated by extensive maintenance.

The main focus of this session is to attract researchers in reliability working in academia and industry,   and to exchange or update the knowledge, advanced reliability techniques available in the present.

Information for the purpose of promotion of the session:

The session will focus on attracting papers on the following area.

1. Problems on reliability modeling of complex systems such as assessing the reliability of various climate models,  complicated electronic power systems, nuclear power plant design and its safety, risk and reliability.

2. Works related to various strategies for reliability model evaluation and prediction of reliability.

3. Application of advanced mathematical and statistical methodologies, modern techniques in parameter estimation of various reliability models.

4.  Design of reliability test plans and estimation of the reliability of complex systems in usual classical as wells as in Bayesian paradigm.

5.  Works on various quality control measures related to reliability, reliability optimization, reliability allocation problems, and numerical reliability analysis.

6. The session not only limit to the above, but also welcomes work in the area of applied statistics which has significant application in reliability.

  1. Title: Peak To Average Power Ratio (Papr) Reduction In Wireless System In Fading Channels

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Dr. Himanshu Monga, Principal / Director, Engineering, Jan Nayak Ch. Devi Lal Vidyapeeth Barnala Road, Sirsa, Haryana 125055, INDIA, Emails: principaljcdcoe@gmail.com,himanshumonga@gmail.com; http://jcdv.edu.in/

Brief Introduction- Lower peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in the wireless communications greatly benefits the mobile terminal in terms of transmitter power efficiency and reduced cost of the power amplifier. This work can be used especially for wireless transmission in future mobile communication systems where transmitter power efficiency is of paramount importance.

Significance

In wireless communications lower peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) greatly benefits the mobile terminal in terms of transmit power efficiency and reduced cost of the power amplifier. SC-FDMA's additional advantage of low PAPR makes it a favourite, especially for wireless transmission in future mobile communication systems where transmitter power efficiency is of paramount importance.

Our work deals with PAPR reduction in SC-FDMA with STBC and Turbo Filter. Here we use the Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS) technique to reduce the PAPR and compare the experimental results of PAPR of SC-FDMA with STBC and PAPR of SC-FDMA without STBC over multipath fading channels. The BER performance of the proposed system is also compared with SC-FDMA without STBC (Space Time Block Codes).

  1. Title: A recent development of computational methods for solving differential equations

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Prof. Manoj Kumar, Associate Professor, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad (U.P)-INDIA, Email: manoj@mnnit.ac.in

Brief description of the session: Problems in science and engineering often involve differential equations (des) sufficiently complicated to require numerical techniques for approximating their solutions. Traditionally, the finite difference, finite element, and boundary element methods have been employed to numerically solve DEs. Although powerful and widespread, these tools do have drawbacks including problematic discretization of the problem domain and complications in solving nonlinear DEs.

Computational Mathematics is the area of Mathematics and Computer Science that creates, analyzes, and implements algorithms for solving numerically the complicated non-linear problems of real life. Such type of problems originate generally from real-world applications of algebra, geometry, and calculus, and they involve variables, which vary continuously; these problems occur throughout the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, medicine, business, and many others. During the past half-century, the growth in power and availability of digital computers has led to an increasing use of realistic mathematical models in science and engineering, and numerical analysis of increasing sophistication has been needed to solve these more detailed mathematical models. A wide variety of the great important problems in physics and engineering are formulated in terms of nonlinear equations. One of the most important and striking phenomena of the applications of differential equations(DEs) in the physical sciences and engineering has been the impact of high speed digital computation. This special session looks at recent progress in numerical methods and covers both theoretical and computational aspects with applications.

Aim: This symposium will be a forum for new advantages on Computational Methods on Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations and applications in Science and Engineering

Topics: Finite Differences, Finite Elements, Finite Volumes, Boundary Elements (BEM), Computational Intelligence methods for the solution of differential Equations. Applications in Science and Engineering. Other theoretical and computational aspects.



  1. Title: Modelling and Computational Methods for Nonlinear Fluid Flow with Heat and Mass Transfer

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Prof. Oluwole Daniel Makinde (Distinguished Professor of Computational and Applied Mathematics), Faculty of Military Science, Stellenbosch University, SOUTH AFRICA, Email: makinded@gmail.com

Brief description of the session: 

In order to simulate the nonlinear fluid flow with heat and mass transfer in engineering, industry and other related physical phenomena, it is necessary to describe the associated physics in computational and mathematical terms. Nearly all the physical phenomena of interest are governed by the principles of conservation and are expressed in terms of nonlinear partial or ordinary differential equations expressing these principles. For example, the continuity and momentum equations express the conservation of mass and linear momentum; the energy and concentration equations express the conservation of total energy and chemical species. This symposium / workshop will focus on nonlinear analysis and numerical simulation of typical conservation equations modelling physical phenomena with respect to fluid flow with heat and mass transfer. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the nonlinear problems arising from fluid flow with heat and transfer, and other related physical phenomena.

Aim: This symposium / workshop will showcase recent development on various numerical and semi-numerical computational techniques for tackling problems related to nonlinear fluid flow with heat and mass transfer in engineering and technology.  

Topics: Topics to be covered include, but not limited to following: Boundary layer flows, Nano-fluids dynamics, Reactive flows, Hydromagnetic flows, Physiological flows, Thermodynamics analysis of fluid flows, Newtonian and non-Newtonian flows, etc.



  1. Title: Modelling Large Deformation and Failure Processes in Solids

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Prof. Raj Das (Associate Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Aviation), School of Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

Email: RAJ.DAS@RMIT.EDU.AU;

Brief description of the session: 

Fracture of materials is a common event, often with adverse consequences; yet it is a complex phenomenon, governed by processes that initiate at the atomic scale and operate over different time and length scales. In order to simulate discontinuous processes, such as extreme deformation and fracture in solids for various engineering, industries and other related physical phenomena, it is necessary to describe the associated physics in computational and mathematical terms. A number of physical phenomena of interest contribute to damage initiation and growth, which are governed by nonlinear partial or ordinary differential equations expressing these principles. However, the high degree of nonlinearly and discontinuity in solution domains makes the mathematical model developments and their numerical solutions complicated. This symposium / workshop will focus on analytical and numerical formulation and solution of damage and fracture process in a wide variety of materials. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles related to failure processes in solids.

Aim: This symposium/workshop will showcase novel analytical and numerical modelling approaches for simulation of extreme deformation, fracture and disintegration of materials and structures, and establish their robustness by extending the fields of application to a wide variety of engineering problems, for example, ranging from small scale nano-machining to large scale earthquake induced fracture of dams.

Brief description of the session: 

The flow of fluid with suspended particulate matter is encountered in many different fields. Typical examples occurring in nature are dust storms, forest-fire smoke and the dispersion of solid pollutants in the atmosphere. Many processes in industry utilize gas particle flows, such as transportation of pulverized materials in pneumatic conveyers, separation and classification of particles in cyclone and other particles in cyclone or other separators, fluidization in chemical reactors, and combustion of powered fuels in combustion chambers. In addition, flow of fluid with suspended solid particles has various applications to MHD generators, solid propellant rockets, laser-Doppler anemometry and blast waves moving over the Earth’s surface. The model to be discussed will be capable of simulating such two-phase flow phenomena and also it will be able to reveal the details of internal processes viz. incompressible, compressible and turbulent mixing of a particulate suspension. This model has twice the number of differential equations as that for clear fluid model. The particle-fluid, particle-particle interactions lead to stronger non-linear differential equations which can be solved using numerical methods.

  1. Title: Machine repair problems with spares and various vacation policies

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Dr. Dinesh Chandra Sharma, Dean, School of Mathematics, Statistics & Computational Sciences, Central University of Rajasthan, Bandar Sindari, Kishangarh, Ajmer -302017-INDIA,

Emails:dcsharma@curaj.ac.in;dean.smscs@curaj.ac.in;dcsharmacuraj@gmail.com

Brief description of the session: Machines are the integral part of life may it be industry or day today equipment needs. Whenever and wherever machines are there, they ought to fail and repairing of such machine is required. Machine repair problem is a finite source population queuing model, where failed machine arrive and are served using stochastic process taking into consideration, different arrival pattern and service pattern, where serving machine (Repairmen) can breakdown and can get various kind of vacations. Developing such mathematical models which can improve the efficiency of machines and predicting various performance indices. Following are some of the classical queuing models of machine repair problems under various conditions for repairmen and vacation policy thereof:

  1. Machine Repair Problem with Standby

Whenever a machine fails it goes for repair. In this situation there is a requirement of spare parts or standby machines to avoid any production or system breakdown. As soon as the failed machine is repaired either it joins the operating machines or standby. Standby machines are of three kinds depending on the characteristic of machine namely hot, warm and cold standby.    

When failure rate of standby machine is zero then it is known as cold standby. A standby machine is known as warm standby when its failure rate is less than the failure rate of an operating machine.  When the failure rate of the standby machine and operating machine is equal then standby machine are known to be hot standby

  1. Machine Repair Problem with Discouragement

Sometimes large number of failed machines may accumulate in machining system. Such situations may occur in a manufacturing or production systems. In this condition, the machining system strongly recommends a special type of care and proper repair facility. Behavior of the care taking facility of the failed machines for repair is that it may join the queue; wait for its turn; after getting service finally depart from such environment.                                                

In real life situation, there are various reasons such as lack of time and space or impatience, so that one may not like to join the queue for repair. This situation is known as the discouragement.

Reneging: A customer may leave the queue without being served due to impatience or any other reasons even after spending sometime in the queue. This is known by reneging.

Collusion: there are several customers may stand in the queue and cooperate to system and others leave the system.  Such situation is known by collusion.

Jockeying: When there are two or more parallel waiting line, customer may switch from one to another in hope of receiving the service early. This is known as Jockeying.

  1. Machine Repair Problem with Vacation

Whenever a failed machine is repaired by a repairman, there may be situation where there is no failed machine and also no requirement of repairmen. In this situation repairman goes for vacation to utilize the full capacity of repairmen. It can be engaged in some other activity which may optimize the cost of the system. There may be several other reasons such as less work, secondary jobs given to it, system failure and many more. Such queuing models in which repairmen goes for vacation are known as machine repair problem with vacation.

Now we discuss a machine repair problem model with vacation under the following assumptions. There are M operating and S standby units present in the system. The operating units as well as spare units are subjected to breakdown according to exponential distribution with rates, respectively. The repair times of failed, operating as well as spare units are exponential distributed. The repairman goes for a vacation when the system is empty. The duration of the vacation of the server is independent and identically distributed random variable having exponential distribution with rate.

  1. Machine Repair Problem with N-Policy

To get the net profit or to minimize the total expenditure N-policy is a powerful tool, in which repairmen join the system only when there are N numbers of failed machines accumulated for repairing. If failed machine are less than this number, repairmen goes for vacation. Here we describe Markovian model of N-policy machine repair problem. There are O units in the system, which are subjected to fail according to Poisson process with rate λ and service is done according to exponential distribution with rate.

  1. Machine Repair Problem with Common Cause Failure

In the machining environment, the common cause failure may be defined as the failure due to which more than one unit fail by a single reason. There are various reasons which can cause the failure of several components simultaneously. Examples of common cause failure may be earthquakes, flood, humidity, fires, power outage, light strikes, etc.

  1. Machine Repair Problem with Switching Failure

The machining system with standbys is reduce the inconvenience arises due to the failure of operating machine and avoid the service interruption. Whenever an operating machine fails, it is being replaced by spare machine. Failure of replacement of failed operating machine by standby machine is known as switching failure in machining system. It is assumed that switching time is instantaneous. The switching may be manually or automatically with the help of any switching device but there is always a possibility of failures during switching from standby state to operating state. So, it is assume that there is always a failure probability associate with switching device in real time machining systems.      

  1. Machine Repair Problem with Multi Modes of Failure

Machine may fail due to multiple modes of failure, which may occur with different frequency and require different amount of time for repair. In real time system, its usual condition because machine may have number of component which may fails more or less frequency producing more or less severe failure.

Cost analysis, reliability of the system and sensitivity analysis in each case is required besides other performance measures. So the scope of the mini symposiums is quit big but focused to machine repair problems.

Brief Description of the Session

Stock prices and associated options are analyzed in the modern world with the help of mathematical techniques specifically suited to their behavior. Valuation of options took off during the 20th century when Black, Scholes, and Merton brought forward their Nobel-prize winning theory based on Brownian motion suggested by Bachelier. During the last five decades, many different models have been proposed as addition to the B-S model and also as its alternates. Despite a plethora of these models, their general suitability has been criticized variously. In this context, it is worthwhile to consider and compare studies and results by researchers from around the world.

Topics of Interest

Topics include, but are not limited to, computational finance, financial engineering, risk management, portfolio management, financial modeling, derivatives valuation, option pricing models, stochastic asset models, Brownian motion, random walk theory, stochastic calculus, arbitrage-free pricing, risk-neutral probability, copulas, martingales, stochastic volatility etc.  

Promotion of the Symposium

Primary promotion will be through targeted email distribution to colleagues, friends, and contacts. The mailer will also be circulated to various societies, where I am associated, explaining the context, importance, and benefits of attending and presenting in the conference. The website will also be used to promote the symposium. We will also use social sites like Facebook and LinkedIn etc.  

  1. Title:  Fuzzy Information Theory, fuzzy logic systems and fuzzy control

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Professor D.S. Hooda, Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Tech, Hisar-125 001, Haryana, INDIA. E-mail: ds_hooda@rediffmail.com

A Brief Description and Background:  

Uncertainty may arise due to partial information or with impression in language or not fully reliable information. Fuzzy set theory is an excellent mathematical tool to handle the uncertainty arising due to vagueness or ambiguity and has been measured as fuzzy entropy or fuzzy information.

 Lotif A. Zadeh in 1965 propounded the fuzzy set theory, while De Luca and Termini defined a fuzzy entropy or information measure in 1972.  Later on this measure has been generalized parametrically by various authors and applied in almost all mathematical sciences, engineering, medicine, etc.

 In 1986 Atanassov introduced the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy set as generalization of fuzzy set, which is capable of capturing the information that includes some degree of hesitation and has been applied in many fields of research. Such a generalization of fuzzy sets equips us with an additional possibility to represent imperfect knowledge which leads to describe many real problems in more adequate way.

 In 2001 Szmidt and Kacprzyk proposed fuzzy information measures for IFS on extending fuzzy information measure due to De Luca and Termini for fuzzy set in 1972 and called them intuitionistic fuzzy information measures which had found wide applications in pattern recognition, image processing, medical diagnosis, etc.  

Fuzzy rule based system is most useful in modelling some complex systems that can be observed by humans because it makes use of linguistic variables can be naturally represented by fuzzy sets and logical connectives of these sets. By using the basic properties and operations defined for fuzzy sets, any compound rule structure may be decomposed and reduced to a number of simple canonical rules.

The crisp rules in the knowledge base were substituted by fuzzy statements which semantically obtained the context of the rules. Naturally, the inference engine had to be substituted by a system that was able to infer from fuzzy statements; to be called here ‘computational unit’. First, very successful applications of these systems were in control engineering and that were called fuzzy controllers.

During the last few decades, fuzzy control has been successfully applied to many control problems its applications involve a wide range of products ranging from simple consumer products to control systems of complex technological systems. A fuzzy controller is constructed to make decisions about what the control input to the plant should be given processed versions of the plant output and the reference input.

  1.  Title: Design and Model - Based Approach to Indirect Methods of Estimation for Small Domains

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Professor G.C. Tikkiwal, Dean, Faculty of Science, Manipal University Jaipur, INDIA, Emails: gopichand.tikkiwal@jaipur.manipal.edu;         gctikkiwal@yahoo.com;

A Brief Description and Background:  

The Indirect methods of estimation or, commonly known as, small area estimation methods are used to produce efficient estimates of parameters of interest such as means, totals, proportions etc. for areas or domains for which only small samples or no samples are available. Such areas or domains are generally referred as small areas or small domains. The Indirect methods of estimations can be divided broadly into “design based”, “model based” and “design-model based” categories. Design based methods, apart from a sampling design, often use a (implicit) model for the construction of the estimators. Model based methods on the other hand usually condition on the selected sample, and the inference is with respect to the underlying model. The model based methods use either the frequenters approach or the Bayesian methodology, and in the same cases combine the two, known as empirical Bayes. The Design-model approach is a combination of the Design and model based methods.



  1. Title: Dynamics of Nano fluids and Applications in Heat Enhancement   

Organizer: Dr. Mukesh Kumar Sharma, Professor & Chairman, Department of Mathematics, Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Technology, Hisar-125001 (Haryana) , INDIA, Email: drms123@gmail.com;

Brief Description of the session: The omnipresence of fluid extends the applications of fluid dynamics in almost all areas of interest from ocean to space, biological micro structure to macro structure, and especially in the study of bio-fluid flow in human body. The development of nano-particles and their stable suspension in the fluids serves different type of nanofluids. The rheology of nano-fluids is depending on the material properties of the particles, their shape and nature of base fluid. On varying these characteristics the applications of nanofluids can be expand from industrial technology to medical science. In the physiological studies of human body the identification of diseases and their treatment are two important aspects to bring the body in normal condition. Amongst several diseases, pertaining to human body, the rate of success of cure from tumor and cancer is still below the satisfaction. The enhancement of heat convection due to nano-particles, nanofluids opens a wide region of applications in the thermal based therapy. With the coupling of nanofluid and radiation therapy the treatment process can be activated at fewer amounts of radiations. The corrective measures can be simulated with the mathematical modelling of the problem based on conduction/convection process and dynamics of fluid.              

Aim: The aim of the symposium is to bring forward mathematicians, scientist and persons from medical sciences to sake hand for interdisciplinary researches. Also, this mini-symposium may give a platform to the researchers to present their outcomes and future prospective of academic work in the application domains.

  1. Title:  Computational methods and artificial intelligence applications for modeling transport infrastructure performance

Organizer and Honorary Co-chair: Dr. Adewole S. Oladele, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Botswana International University of Science & Technology, Palapye, BOTSWANA, Email: oladelea@biust.ac.bw 

Brief description of the session: Transport infrastructure performance prediction modeling plays a key role in pavement management systems (PMS) which is considered to be a programming tool that collects and monitors information on current pavement conditions; forecasts future conditions, evaluates and prioritizes alternative maintenance strategies to achieve steady state of system preservation at predetermined level of performance. Hence, effective implementation of pavement management systems in generating and evaluating various alternative strategies is largely dependent on the ability to predict the future condition of the pavement. Therefore, accurate performance prediction modeling based on historically measured data for each road section will help to estimate when the triggering values (threshold) in the maintenance intervention will be reached.
