The heat exchanger performance of a system can be enhancedemploying a combination of passive strategies, particularly nanofluids and varied structures of fins geometries. These methods can enhance the heat transfer coefficient and consequently reduce the weight of the system. In this paper, the effect of fin geometry and nanofluids in...Read More

The alteration of the curvature of space time has been determined by directly linking gravity significantly to the Einstein Field Equations, with respect to coordinates in space and frame of reference. A similarity between gravitational field and the flow of fluids has been determined, by equating the like terms of...Read More

Clustering is a ubiquitous technique in machine learning. Clustering is useful when we do not have labeled data. In the present study, three of the most useful and easy to implement clustering algorithms, namely k-means method, greedy-k-means method, and in the last but not the least is improved-k-means method have...Read More

This paper presents a method to compute the shortest (geodesic) distance between two given points in a polyhedral solid. The basic difference between the shortest and the geodesic shortest distance is that, in shortest distance between two points in a graph is the shortest path length connecting those two points...Read More

Today classical computers stores information in bits, which take the discrete values 0 and 1. On the other hand information stored in Quantum computers are not up to two states buten code information as quantum bits, or qubits resulting in superposition and entanglement. The Qubits can be represented by atoms,...Read More
