Purpose: This paper aims to discuss the present status of using new generation web technology, social media and Web 2.0 features among the technological university library websites in south India. It seeks to assess the library websites as a primary platform and one-stop portal for information services and to examine how much library websites are effective in providing web-based information services. Design/methodology/approach: The library websites of the technological universities in south India were evaluated on the basis of a relative weight checklist. The criteria for the checklist were drawn on the basis of availability of websites for library, resource discovery tools, access to scholarly content and Web 2.0 tools. The various issues and challenges in adapting new web technologies in the academic environment are discussed. Findings: Using the current web development technologies and deploying for mainstream web information services is not widespread as web information services are yet to take off widely in academic libraries. The majority of university libraries are found to be working in the conventional library settings and the diffusion rate of web information services is relatively low. Originality/value: As this is an assessment of the existing online information infrastructure facilities of the engineering universities in south India, the awareness of web-based information services, their viability, and service values can be enhanced. More emphasis to improve upon the current learning, online educational facilities and benchmarking electronic information services for sustainability is highlighted. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

This paper describes the performance evaluation for the feed forward neural network with three different soft computing techniques to recognition of hand written English alphabets. Evolutionary algorithms for the hybrid neural network are showing the numerous potential in the field of pattern recognition. We have taken five trials and two networks of each of the algorithm: back propagation, Evolutionary algorithm, and Hybrid Evolutionary algorithm respectively. These algorithms have been taken the definite lead on the conventional approaches of neural network for pattern recognition. It has been analyzed that the feed forward neural network by two Evolutionary algorithms makes better generalization accuracy in character recognition problems. The problem of not convergence the weight in conventional backpropagation has also eliminated by using the soft computing techniques. It has been observed that, there are more than one converge weight matrix in character recognition for every training set. The results of the experiments show that the hybrid evolutionary algorithm can solve challenging problem most reliably and efficiently. These algorithms have also been compared on the basis of time and space complexity for the training set. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source

Analysis of 3.3 Ga tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite (TTG) series granitoids and greenstone belt assemblages from the Bundelkhand craton in central India reveal that it is a typical Archaean craton. At least two greenstone complexes can be recognized in the Bundelkhand craton, namely the (i) Central Bundelkhand (Babina, Mauranipur belts) and (ii) Southern Bundelkhand (Girar, Madaura belts). The Central Bundelkhand greenstone complex contains three tectonostratigraphic assemblages: (1) metamorphosed basic or metabasic, high-Mg rocks; (2) banded iron formations (BIFs); and (3) felsic volcanics. The first two assemblages are regarded as representing an earlier sequence, which is in tectonic contact with the felsic volcanics. However, the contact between the BIFs and mafic volcanics is also evidently tectonic. Metabasic high-Mg rocks are represented by amphibolites and tremolite-actinolite schists in the Babina greenstone belt and are comparable in composition to tholeiitic basalts-basaltic andesites and komatiites. They are very similar to the metabasic high-Mg rocks of the Mauranipur greenstone belt. Felsic volcanics occur as fine-grained schists with phenocrysts of quartz, albite, and microcline. Felsic volcanics are classified as calc-alkaline dacites, less commonly rhyolites. The chondrite-normalized rare earth element distribution pattern is poorly fractionated (LaN/LuN = 11-16) with a small negative Eu anomaly (Eu/Eu∗ = 0.68-0.85), being characteristic of volcanics formed in a subduction setting. On Rb - Y + Nb, Nb - Y, Rb - Ta + Yb and Ta - Yb discrimination diagrams, the compositions of the volcanics are also consistent with those of felsic rocks formed in subduction settings. SHRIMP-dating of zircon from the felsic volcanics of the Babina belt of the Central Bundelkhand greenstone complex, performed for the first time, has shown that they were erupted in Neoarchaean time (2542 ± 17 Ma). The early sequence of the Babina belt is correlatable with the rocks of the Mauranipur belt, whose age is tentatively estimated as Mesoarchaean. The Central Bundelkhand greenstone complex consists of two (Meso- and Neoarchaean) sequences, which were formed in subduction settings. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor & Francis. Source

The nuclear transition matrix elements M(0ν) for the neutrinoless ββ decay of Zr94,96, Mo98,100, Ru104, Pd110, Te128,130, and Nd150 isotopes in the case of 0⊃+→0⊃+ transition are calculated using the projected-Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov wave functions, which are eigenvectors of four different parametrizations of a Hamiltonian with pairing plus multipolar effective two-body interaction. Employing two (three) different parametrizations of Jastrow-type short-range correlations, a set of eight (twelve) different nuclear transition matrix elements M(0ν) is built for each decay, whose averages in conjunction with their standard deviations provide an estimate of the model's uncertainties. © 2010 The American Physical Society.

Objective: To explore and document the information regarding usage of ethnoveterinary medicinal plants utilized by rural farmers and traditional herbal healers for livestock healthcare in Tikamgarh District of Bundelkhnad, Central India. Methods: The remote villages of Tikamgarh district were regularly visited from July 2011 to June 2012. Following the methods of Jain and Goel (1995) information regarding the usage of ethnoveterinary medicinal plants was collected. Results: A total of 41 plant species in 39 genera and 25 families were used traditionally with various plant parts and their combinations for the treatment of more than 36 diseases in the studied area. Trees (17 species) were found to be the most used Ethnoveterinary medicinal plants followed by herbs (15 species), shrubs (6 species) and grasses (3) in descending order. The most common diseases cough, diarrhoea and fever were treated by 04 ethnoveterinary medicinal plant species. Conclusions: The present study recommended that the crop and medicinal plant genetic resources cannot be conserved and protected without conserving/managing of the agro-ecosystem or natural habitat of medicinal plants and the socio-cultural organization of the local people. The same may be applied to protect indigenous knowledge, related to the use of medicinal and other wild plants. Introduction of medicinal plants in degraded government and common lands could be another option for promoting the rural economy together with environmental conservation, but has not received attention in the land rehabilitation programs in this region. © 2014 by the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine.
