Network coding (NC) is a technique used to improve wireless networks throughput, efficiency, and scalability. When employing this technique, wireless nodes collect several packets and combine them together in one single transmission. This technique is used to attain the maximum possible network flow with minimum number of transmissions. COPE, OpNC and FENC are widely known approaches in network coding that vary in complexity and optimality. COPE is the first proposed approach for network coding...

Hussain Ali Bekhet / Tahira Yasmin

The paper examines compositional structure changes in the Malaysian economy, over 1980–2015, when nine plans were implemented and five I-O tables were published by Department of Statistics Malaysia. Input side is utilised to evaluate changes in economic efficiency. The study focuses on changes in economic structure with different levels of development over time. As results indicate, the source of economic development in the Malaysian economy is final demand for 1983–1987, 1991–2000, 2000–2005 a...

ABDELWADOOD MESLEH OMAR ARABEYYAT / Sharhabeel Hassan Alnabelsi JAMAL AL-NABULSI

Due to the large volume of Arabic texts in many generated and historical documents, it is essential to use computers in order to make generated texts editable, this is actually the main task of Arabic Object Character Recognition (OCR) systems. The task of automatically OCRing is to type documents within close-to-human performance, such OCR system is still an open research problem. In this paper, we propose an Arabic OCR based on Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) algorithm that is empowered to properl...

Yahya Akhtar Tabash

This study investigates the impact of political instability, macroeconomic and bank-specific factors on the profitability of Islamic banks in the context of Yemen. The study used two common measures of profitability, namely, Return on Assets (ROA) and Return on Equity (ROE) as dependent variables. Seven key independent (internal and external) variables are also used. There are five fully-fledged Islamic banks (IBs) working in Yemen. The study selected only three out of five IBs due to the avail...
