Correlation analysis: Exact permutation paradigm161$-$170
Justice Ighodaro Odiase and Sunday Martins Ogbonmwan

Abstract

For a general class of problems, the permutation of observations is the only possible method of truly constructing exact tests of significance. The exact sampling distribution of a test statistic for an experiment compiled by the permutation approach requires no reference to a population distribution and therefore no requirement that it should conform to a mathematically definable frequency distribution. Algorithms for the exact permutation distribution of correlation coefficients is presented and implemented. As an illustrative example, critical values for Pearson's product moment and Spearman's rank correlation coefficients are produced for Charles Darwin's data on the heights of cross and self fertilized plants.

Forcing signed domination numbers in graphs171$-$179
S. M. Sheikholeslami

Abstract

We initiate the study of forcing signed domination in graphs. A function $f:V(G)\longrightarrow \{-1,+1\}$ is called {ıt signed dominating function} if for each $vın V(G)$, ${\sssize\sum}_{uın N[v]}f(u)\geq 1$. For a signed dominating function $f$ of $G$, the {ıt weight} $f$ is $w(f)={\sssize\sum}_{vın V}f(v)$. The {ıt signed domination number} $\gamma_s(G)$ is the minimum weight of a signed dominating function on $G$. A signed dominating function of weight $\gamma_s(G)$ is called a $\gamma_s(G)$-{ıt function}. A $\gamma_s(G)$-function $f$ can also be represented by a set of ordered pairs $S_f=\{(v, f(v)): vın V\}$. A subset $T$ of $S_f$ is called a {ıt forcing subset\/} of $S_f$ if $S_f$ is the unique extension of $T$ to a $\gamma_s(G)$-function. The {ıt forcing signed domination number} of $S_f$, $f(S_f,{\gamma_s})$, is defined by $f(S_f,{\gamma_s})=\min\{|T|: \mbox{$T$ is a forcing subset of\/ } S_f\}$ and the {ıt forcing signed domination number} of $G$, $f(G,{\gamma_s})$, is defined by $f(G,{\gamma_s})=\min\{f(S_f,{\gamma_s}): S_f \;\;\tx{is a}\; \gamma_s(G)\mbox{-function}\}$. For every graph $G$, $f(G,\gamma_s)\geq 0$. In this paper we show that for integer $a,b$ with $a$ positive, there exists a simple connected graph $G$ such that $f(G,\gamma_s)=a$ and $\gamma_s(G)=b$. The forcing signed domination number of several classes of graph, including paths, cycles, Dutch-windmills, wheels, ladders and prisms are determined.

Dense sets, nowhere dense sets and an ideal in generalized closure spaces181$-$188
Chandan Chattopadhyay

Abstract

In this paper, concepts of various forms of dense sets and nowhere dense sets in generalized closure spaces have been introduced. The interrelationship among the various notions have been studied in detail. Also, the existence of an ideal in generalized closure spaces has been settled.

Some curvature conditions of the type $2\times 4$ on the submanifolds satisfying Chen's equality189$-$196
Ana Hinić

Abstract

Submanifolds of the Euclidean spaces satisfying equality in the basic Chen's inequality have, as is known, many interesting properties. In this paper, we discuss on such submanifolds the curvature conditions of the form $E_2\cdot F_4=0$, where $E_2$ is the Ricci or the Einstein curvature operator, $F_4$ is any of the standard curvature operators $R, Z, P, K, C$, and $E_2$ acts on $F_4$ as a derivation.

Notes on doubly warped and doubly twisted product CR-submanifolds of Kaehler manifolds205$-$210
Bayram \c{S}ahin

Abstract

B. Y. Chen studied warped product CR-submanifolds [7] and twisted product CR-submanifolds [6] in Kaehler manifolds. In this paper, we have checked the existence of other product CR-submanifolds such as doubly warped and doubly twisted products in Kaehler manifolds.
