We present a new class of exact solutions of relativistic field equations for a collapsing spherically symmetric shear-free isotopic fluid undergoing radial heat flow. The interior solutions are matched with Vaidya exterior metric over the boundary. Initially the interior solutions represent a static configuration of perfect fluid which then gradually starts evolving into radiating collapse. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Active faults of the densely forest covered northwestern part of the Ganga Plain have been identified and mapped on the basis of geomorphic signatures as observed in the Digital Terrain Models, remote sensing data and field. The structural limit between the Ganga Plain and Himalaya in the north is defined by the Himalayan Frontal thrust (HFT), which is a direct consequence of the compression resulting from collision of Indian and Eurasian plates and present day principal displacement zone between them. This HFT is offset by dip-slip, oblique-slip and strike-slip faults, extending transversely through the Ganga Basin. Analysis of these faults in conjunction with the available geological and subsurface geophysical data reveals that the development of some of these transverse faults is localized along basement highs of the basin. These faults tear asunder the Himalayan thrust sheets and may have developed during the collision either because of a rheological contrast between the basement highs and adjacent sedimentary fill, or a lateral change in cover thickness across the basement highs, or due to the reactivation of pre-existing basement faults. The continuous pressing and prodding by these basement highs have caused bending of the strata, leading to conspicuous bending of the mountain belt. One of the tear faults has formed as a result of the along-strike propagation of an oblique ramp of the Main Boundary thrust (MBT), along which the Lesser Himalayan succession is thrust over the Siwalik. In addition to these tear faults, some transverse faults of limited lateral extent, cutting through the mountain belt and basin, may have formed during the last event of deformation along the HFT zone. © 2012 The Association of Korean Geoscience Societies and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Rhododendron arboreum is an evergreen shrub or small tree with a showy display of bright red flowers. The RHODODENDRON ' 'name' is derived from the Greek word 'RHODO' means rose & 'DENDRON' means tree. Rhododendron is the national flower of Nepal & is known as (Laligurans) & the state tree of Uttarakhand. It is called 'Burans, Bras, Buras or Barahke- phool' in local dialect. It is widely popular for the processed juice of its flowers which have gained market popularity as rhodojuice/sharbat. The plant is found in the Himalayas from Kashmir eastwards to Nagaland. Various parts of the plant exhibited medicinal properties & is used for the treatment of various ailments. The present review is an effort to give the detailed survey of literature on its pharmacognosy, phytochemistry & pharmacological uses of the plant under study.

In this paper, we represent 16-component sedenions, the generalization of octonions, which is noncommutative space-time algebra. The sedenions is neither a composition algebra nor a division algebra because it has zero divisors. Here we have formulated the sedenionic unified potential equations, unified fields equations and unified current equations of dyons and gravito-dyons. We have developed the sedenionic unified theory of dyons and gravito-dyons in terms of two eight-potentials leading to the structural symmetry between generalized electromagnetic fields of dyons and generalized gravito-Heavisidian fields of gravito-dyons. Thus we have obtained the sedenionic form of generalized Dirac-Maxwell's equations, unified work-energy theorem (Poynting theorem), generalized unified gravi-electromagnetic force and other quantum equations of dyons and gravito-dyons in simple, compact and consistent way incorporating the non-associativity and non-commutativity of sedenion variables. © 2014 Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science.

We know that the octonion algebra is the largest division algebra. Therefore, we have discussed the octonion 8-dimensional space as the combination of 2 (external and internal) 4-dimensional spaces. The octonion wave equations in terms of 8 components has been written in terms of an 8 × 8 matrix. Octonion forms of potential as well as fields equations of dyons in terms of an 8 × 8 matrix are discussed in a consistent manner. At last, we have obtained the generalized Dirac-Maxwell equations of dyons in two 4-dimensional spaces, from the 8 × 8 matrix representation of octonion wave equations. Generalized Dirac-Maxwell equations are fully symmetric Maxwell's equations and allow for the possibility of magnetic charges and currents, i.e. analogous to electric charges and currents.. © TÜBİTAK.
