Mashhad, Iran

Ferdowsi University of Mashhad is the largest research university in Northeastern Iran named after the great epic poet and historian of Iranian national history Ferdowsi, whose Shahnameh is a chef-d'oeuvre in Persian literature. The FUM campus is in Mashhad, the capital city of the Razavi Khorasan province. The university was established in 1949, making it the third oldest major university in Iran. It is among the five top universities in the country according to statistics published by the Ministry of science, Research and Technology. FUM offers 180 bachelors, masters, and Ph.D. programs to 26,000 international and local, male and female students studying under about 900 faculty members with the aid of 2500 staff employees. The university is regarded as a prominent institution in attracting international students from Central Asian republics, Afghanistan, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan, Thailand, India, China, Yaman, Bahrain, Africa and many other localities of Asia. The university is ranked third in Iran amongst other universities in recruiting foreign students.Before the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979, Ferdowsi University had taken for its ally Georgetown University of Washington, D.C., USA.

We use compatibility of O-plane action with nonlinear T-duality as a guiding principle to find all NS-NS couplings in the O-plane action at order α'2. We find that the dilaton couplings appear in the string frame only via the transformation Rμν→Rμν+∇μ∇νϕ. © 2015 The Author. Source

Using the compatibility of the DBI and the Chern-Simons actions with the T-duality transformations, the curvature corrections to these actions have been recently extended to include the quadratic B-field couplings at order O(α '2). In this paper, we use the compatibility of the couplings on D 3-brane with the S-duality to find the nonlinear RR couplings at order O(α '2). We confirm the quadratic RR couplings in the DBI part with the disk-level scattering amplitude. Using the modular functions that appear in the curvature corrections, we then write the results in SL(2,Z) invariant form. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. Source

It is known that the anomalous Dp-brane Chern-Simons couplings are not consistent with the standard rules of T-duality. Using compatibility of these couplings with the linear T-duality transformations, the B-field gauge transformations and the general coordinate transformations as guiding principles we find new couplings at order O(α'2) for C(p-3), C(p-1), C(p+1) and C(p+3). © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

We examine the Neveu Shwarz-Neveu Shwarz corrections to the type II supergravity given by Gross and Sloan, under the linear T-duality transformations. We show that the gravity and the B-field couplings are invariant under off-shell T-duality, whereas the dilaton couplings are invariant under on-shell T-duality. Requiring the compatibility of the dilaton couplings with off-shell T-duality as a guiding principle, we extend them to include the appropriate Ricci curvature and the divergence of the B-field strength. © 2013 American Physical Society.

This review covers recent developments in surfactant-based extraction methods, with the aim of highlighting some of the most important aspects of micellar systems together with their applications in analysis. It also compares the phase-transfer methodology of different surfactant-based extraction methods (e.g., cloud-point extraction) with coacervative extraction methods using different kinds of surfactant. It includes factors affecting the extraction efficiency of the methods in some recent applications. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. Source
