A Characterization of Analyticity Using Cauchy Integral Formula
(2010)In this paper, we obtain a general characterization of analyticity of function of a complex variable using Cauchy integral formula. 
Construction of Higher Orthogonal Polynomials through a New Inner Product <.,.>p in a Countable Real Lpspace
(2005)This research work places a new and consistent inner product <.,.>p on a countable family of the real Lp function spaces, proves generalizations of some of the inequalities of the classical inner product for <.,.>p provides ... 
Convergence of Solutions of Certain FourthOrder Nonlinear Differential Equations
(2007)We give sufficient criteria for the existence of convergence of solutions for a certain class of fourthorder nonlinear differential equations using Lyapunov's second method. A complete Lyapunov function is employed in ... 
Fostering the Practice and Teaching of Statistical Consulting among Young Statisticians in Africa
(2011)Statistical Consulting is unarguably one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of statistics. It is both an art and a science because it involves both statistical and nonstatistical skills. This article considers ... 
Globally Stable Periodic Solution of Certain Fourth Order NonLinear Differential Equations
(2010)In this paper, we give criteria for the existence of a unique solution to a certain fourth order nonlinear differential equations which is bounded together with its derivatives on the real line, globally stable and periodic ... 
Ignition Time for a Porous Medium Model with Low Thermal Conductivity
(2003)The ignition time for a porous medium combustion arising from a porous medium combustion model is considered. The effect of the activation energy parameter as well as the parameter which measures the ratio of oxygen ... 
Incorporating Crown Dimensions into Stem Height and Basal Area Growth Models for African White Wood (Triplochiton scleroxylon)
(2006)Four crown dimensions (crown diameter, crown projection area, crown length and crown ratio) were each, incorporated into nonlinear individual tree total height and basal area increment models for African white wood ... 
Modeling Socioeconomic Factors Affecting Age at Marriage among females in Kogi State, Nigeria
(2012)This paper is aimed at determining the effect of socioeconomic factors such as cultural background, level of education and religion in relation to age at marriage among women in Kogi State Nigeria. The survey area is made ... 
Multivariate Regression Techniques for Analyzing AutoCrash Variables in Nigeria
(2011)It is unequivocally indisputable that motor vehicle accidents have increasingly become a major cause of concern for highway safety engineers and transportation agencies in Nigeria over the last few decades. This great ... 
Nested Balanced Incomplete Block Designs of the Double Cyclic Type
(2010)A Nested Balanced Incomplete Block Design (NBIBD) is a design with two systems of blocks, each block from the first system containing mblocks from the second. Consequently, by ignoring either system of blocks leaves a ... 
Nested Balanced Incomplete Block Designs of the Series I and II Type
(2009)Suppose there exists a Balanced Incomplete Block (BIB) design (v, b, r, k, ) for which an initial block solution could be obtained from tinitial blocks. Equally if it is possible to divide each initial block into m ... 
NonIsothermal Effect on the Motion of a Particulate Flow between Two Parallel Plates
(2009)The nonisothermal flow of dusty, viscous, incompressible conducting fluid between two oscillatory parallel plates is studied. This flow is described by the continuity, momentum and the energy equation, which accounts for ... 
A Note on the Unsteady Flow of Dusty Viscous Fluid between Two Parallel Plates
(2005)We study the isothermal flow of a dusty viscous incompressible conducting fluid between two types of boundary motions oscillatory and nonoscillatory, under the influence of gravitational force. Within the frame work of ... 
On a Certain Integral Univalent Operator
(2011)In this paper, author proves some properties of a certain integral operator. 
On a FourParameter Type I Generalized Half Logistic Distribution

On a SixParameter Generalized Burr XII Distribution
(2010)In this paper, we derive a probability density function that generalizes the Burr XII distribution. The cumulative distribution function and the nth moment of the generalized distribution are obtained while the distribution ... 
On Double LogLogistic Distribution
(2010)In this paper, the concept of double loglogistic distribution is introduced as another probability model for analyzing statistical data. This new model gives better fit to some statistical data 
On Extended Type I Generalized Logistic Distribution
(2004)We consider a form of generalized logistic distribution which is called extended type I generalized logistic distribution. Some theorems that relate the distribution to some other statistical distributions are established. ... 
On Generalization of the Pareto Distribution
(2009)In this paper, we present a probability density function that generalizes the Pareto distribution. The cumulative distribution function and the moments of the generalized distribution are obtained while the distribution ...
