Lahore, Pakistan

The Lahore School of Economics was established in 1993 and chartered by the Government of Punjab in January 1997, through The Lahore School of Economics Act 1997 . It is based in the city of Lahore, Pakistan.The Lahore School of Economics has two campuses: the Main campus and the City campus. The Main campus, spread over 35 acres , is located on the intersection of DHA Phase VI, Main Boulevard and Burki Road. The City campus is located in Gulberg near the central Liberty Market area.The Lahore School is ranked 2nd best Pakistani business school according to Pakistan's Higher Education Commission (HEC} Ranking after Lums.

The current energy crises has hard pressed humanity to look for alternative energy resources, make use of available resources in a sustainable manner and minimize wastage. This problem can only be solved by interdisciplinary experts equipped with skills of both technology and economics. The work reported here was projected to study techno-economic disposal of infectious waste produced by the hospitals of Lahore being incinerated to liberate air pollutants and waste heat energy that can be harnessed to produce electricity. The primary data was collected by our research group from five model hospitals of Lahore and sites of incineration. The quantity of infectious waste was assessed as 793 metric ton/annum on the basis of which the potential of production of electricity was determined. Five cost of land inclusive and two exclusive alternative projects were framed on the basis of 2008 price and evaluated. All alternatives turned out as non-feasible except one that excluded land cost. Due to a rapid increase in electricity price triggered at end of 2008 and multiplied 2.5 times in 2012, two projects based on 2008 and 2012 price were designed and evaluated. Former qualified all criteria of acceptability and latter even promised unexpected profit to the entrepreneur. © 2014 Asian Institute of Technology. Source

The analysis uses data taken from the World Bank Enterprise Surveys for Pakistan to construct a panel dataset for 402 firms over 4 years. This is used to determine the elasticity of electricity demand with respect to the price of electricity across Pakistani firms. The electricity demand analysis finds that the price elasticity of electricity demand across the sample of firms is -0.57. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Source

The Lie and Noether point symmetry analyses of a kth-order system of m complex ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with m dependent variables are performed. The decomposition of complex symmetries of the given system of complex ODEs yields Lie- and Noether-like operators. The system of complex ODEs can be split into 2m coupled real partial differential equations (PDEs) and 2m Cauchy-Riemann (CR) equations. The classical approach is invoked to compute the symmetries of the 4m real PDEs and these are compared with the decomposed Lie- and Noetherlike operators of the system of complex ODEs. It is shown that, in general, the Lie- and Noether-like operators of the system of complex ODEs and the symmetries of the decomposed system of real PDEs are not the same. A similar analysis is carried out for restricted systems of complex ODEs that split into 2m coupled real ODEs. We summarize our findings on restricted complex ODEs in two propositions. © Indian Academy of Sciences. Source

Folklore suggests that the split Lie-like operators of a complex partial differential equation are symmetries of the split system of real partial differential equations. However, this is not the case generally. We illustrate this by using the complex heat equation, wave equation with dissipation, the nonlinear Burgers equation and nonlinear KdV equations. We split the Lie symmetries of a complex partial differential equation in the real domain and obtain real Lie-like operators. Further, the complex partial differential equation is split into two coupled or uncoupled real partial differential equations which constitute a system of two equations for two real functions of two real variables. The Lie symmetries of this system are constructed by the classical Lie approach. We compare these Lie symmetries with the split Lie-like operators of the given complex partial differential equation for the examples considered. We conclude that the split Lie-like operators of complex partial differential equations are not in general symmetries of the split system of real partial differential equations. We prove a proposition that gives the criteria when the Lie-like operators are symmetries of the split system. © Indian Academy of Sciences. Source

A generalized trapezoidal-valued intuitionistic fuzzy geometric aggregation operator is proposed which is then used to aggregate decision makers' opinions in group decision making process. An extension of TOPSIS, a multi-criteria trapezoidal-valued intuitionistic fuzzy decision making technique, to a group decision environment is also proposed, where inter-dependent or interactive characteristics among criteria and preference of decision makers are under consideration. Furthermore, Choquet integral-based distance between trapezoidal-valued intuitionistic fuzzy values is defined. Combining the trapezoidal-valued intuitionistic fuzzy geometric aggregation operator with Choquet integral-based distance, an extension of TOPSIS method is developed to deal with a multi-criteria trapezoidal-valued intuitionistic fuzzy group decision making problems. Finally, an illustrative example is provided to understand the proposed method. © 2013 Operational Research Society of India. Source
