    In this study, Citrus sinensis (C. sinensis) solid waste was used to catalyze the conversion of free cyanide (F-CN) under alkaline conditions; conditions which represent most industrial wastewater containing F-CN. Acid ...

    The work in this paper concerns a mathematical model of the contact melting process of a rectangular material in contact with a hot plate. The problem is described by a coupled system of heat equations in the solid and ...

    The ground state energy 𝐸 0(𝜆) of 𝐻 𝜆 = − 𝑑 2 /𝑑𝑥 2 − 𝜆 𝑒 −𝑥2 is computed for small values of 𝜆 by means of an approximation of an integral operator in momentum space. Such an approximation leads to a transcendental ...

    The average distance $\mu(G)$ of a connected graph G of order n is the average of the distances between all pairs of vertices of G. We prove that if G is a $\lambda$-edge-connected graph of order n, then the bounds $\mu(G) ...

    Let G be a finite connected graph with minimum degree δ. The leaf number L (G) of G is defined as the maximum number of leaf vertices contained in a spanning tree of G. We prove that if δ >12(L (G) + 1), then G is 2-connected. ...
