Prompt muon-induced fission: a sensitive probe for nuclear energy dissipation and fission dynamicsMar 30 2004Following the formation of an excited muonic atom, inner shell transitions may proceed without photon emission by inverse internal conversion, i.e. the muonic excitation energy is transferred to the nucleus. In actinides, the 2p -> 1s and the 3d -> 1s ... More

Interacting entropy-corrected holographic Chaplygin gas modelMar 17 2010Apr 06 2010Holographic dark energy (HDE), presents a dynamical view of dark energy which is consistent with the observational data and has a solid theoretical background. Its definition follows from the entropy-area relation $S(A)$, where $S$ and $A$ are entropy ... More

A Systematic and Meta-analysis Survey of Whale Optimization AlgorithmMar 20 2019Apr 24 2019Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA) is a nature-inspired meta-heuristic optimization algorithm, which was proposed by Mirjalili and Lewis in 2016. This algorithm has shown its ability to solve many problems. Comprehensive surveys have been conducted about ... More
