Abstract:Trigonometric Polynomial Regression is a form of non-linear regression in which the relationship between the outcome variable and risk variable is Fractional modeled as 1/nth degree polynomial regression by combining the function of cos(nx) and sin(nx) on the value of natural numbers. The model was used to analyze the relationship between three continuous and periodic variables. Coefficients of the model were estimated using the Maximum Likelihood Estimate (MLE) method. From the results, the model obtained indicated that an increased in body mass index will increase the level of blood pressure while age may or may not have an influence on the blood pressure level. The values of the Coefficient of variation showed the variation in the dependent variable was well explained by the independent variables and the value of the adjusted coefficient of determination showed the model had a good fit with a high level of predictive power.

Abstract:Some biological characteristics of shabbot, Arabibarbus grypus (Heckel, 1843) in the Al-Diwaniya River, middle of Iraq were studied from October 2016 to September 2017. Water temperature ranged from 10.2oC in March to 32.8oC in August. A total of 853 fish were caught by seine, gill and cast nets and electro-fishing. A. grypus constituted about 6.27% of the total fish catch. The length-weight relationship was W=0.021*L2.7548 revealing an allometric growth. The mean relative condition factor was 0.91. Five age groups wore recorded and their mean total lengths were 20.2, 32.0, 39.0, 43.9 and 48.4 cm, respectively. The growth model of the species was Lt= 58 [1-e -0.39 (t-0.313)]. The growth performance index (Φ) of A. grypus was computed as 3.11. The study declares that the species is a omnivore, feeding mainly on aquatic plants, insects, algae and detritus. The overall sex ratio (female: male) was 1.47:1. The highest values of gonado- somatic index (GSI) were 4.20 for female and 1.78 for males in April. The fecundity of the species ranged from 75600 to 124200 eggs.

Abstract:In this paper, we introduce the Hutchinson Barnsley operator (shortly, operator) on a metric space and employ its theory to construct a fractal set as its unique fixed point by using Ciric type generalized -contraction in complete metric space. Some concepts are illustrated by numerical examples.

Abstract:The research aims to study the inter-relationship between global competitiveness indicators and human development indicators for selected countries (low, middle, and high income)by using Granger Test, and VAR Test. The results of the causality test showed that there is a causality relation between international competitiveness and human development. We found global competitiveness indicators has a clear effect on human development indicators in the low, middle, and high-income countries.

Abstract:In this research, the solubility Process of the binary liquid solution(1-Propanol and butyl acetate) were studied at temperature(40,50.60)0C. Densities ρ by pycnometer method and viscosity ƞ by OSTWALD tube that calibrated with distilled water was measured. Then excess molar volume was calculated of pure component and its mixtures that was prepared over the entire mole fraction range. It has been observed that excess molar volumes values were negative at all temperatures. After that, the deviation in viscosity ∆ ƞ and Excess Gibbs free energy ∆GE was determined and it has been observed that it takes negative values at all temperatures. Excess molar volume, deviation in viscosity, excess Gibbs free energy were correlated with Redlich-Kister equation Type polynomial and the showed an accepted standard deviation between the experimental and calculated values it has been shown the effect of Hydrogen bonds formation and the spherical shape for the molecules and its size on the excess thermodynamic properties.

Abstract:Iraq suffers Like the rest of the world Different degrees of progress economy Of the dangerous effects of public budget and that the imposition of fees and fines for polluters is inadequate, in addition to carrying the budget to implement the law of protection and improvement of the environment in Iraq No. (27) for the year 2009 through the Ministry of Environment and Health. Therefore, the research aims to determine its goal by studying the tax indicators that help to know the possibility of introducing a new tax, the green tax to protect the environment from pollution in addition to increasing the tax revenues to address the problem of the general budget deficit. The research reached the possibility of imposing a new tax, Provide for the possibility of tax accounting.

Abstract:The balanced scorecard is considered a modern form of evaluating the Performance of economic units; as it depends on the integrated measure of financial performance presenting a description for past events results, besides, depending on un financial measures representing as indicators of future performance. Accordingly, balanced scorecard allows economic units evaluating their performance with four perspectives, the financial, Customer, internal operation, and education and growth perspective.

Abstract:Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease with variable clinical presentation. SLE can affect all organs and the involvement of major organs can be life threatening. This study aimed to determine the relationship of Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and Cortisol hormone on SLE Disease. This study was carried out on (70) study sample, (36) were patients and (34) control. SLE disease had significant association between study groups and sex of patients with SEE disease were 16 times more likely to be female. There were significant mean differences of Epidermal growth factor and Cortisol Hormones by study groups

Abstract:Financial engineering refers to the generation of new instruments or securities to meet the need of investors or refinancing providers for financing instruments, the research aims to highlight the importance of financial products in activating and developing, the stock market as a source of financing for the economy. Where the multiplicity and diversity of financial products traded in the stock market is a cornerstone of its efficiency and development, the diversification of financial products can be used as a hedge against the risk of trading securities. The research was to highlight these risks and how to reduce them, through financial engineering productsmany conclusions and recommendations have been reached.

Abstract:Nowadays, the high speed and accurate optimization algorithms are required. In most of the cases, researchers need a method to predict some criteria with acceptable accuracy to use it after in their algorithms. However, in the field of parallel computing the execution time can be considered the most important criteria. Consequently, this paper presents new execution time prediction model for message passing interface applications execute over numerous grid scenarios. The model has ability to predict the execution time of the message passing applications running over any grid configuration in term of different number of nodes and their computing powers. The experiments are evaluated over SimGrid simulator to simulate the grid configuration scenarios. The results of comparing the real and the predicted execution time show a good accuracy. The average error ratio between the real and the predicted execution time for three benchmarks are 4.36%, 5.79% and 6.81%.
