A Recent SBSH Mathematics Faculty Member’s Research Work is Included in Two Scholarly Publications
Two research articles on applied and computational mathematics towards fluid flow problems have been published by two different Elsevier journals. Written by Dia Zeidan jointly with his co-authors T. Raja Sekhar of the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur and B. Bira of the National Institute of Science and Technology in India. The first article was published in Computers & Mathematics with Applications with a very high impact factor (SCImago quartile Q1 in computational mathematics and modeling and simulation, Q2 in computational theory and mathematics, with cites per doc of 2.049). The second article was published in Applied Mathematics and Computation with a different high impact factor (SCImago quartile Q2 in applied and computational mathematics, with cites per doc of 1.748). These publications strengthen the position of the School of Basic Sciences and Humanities in research and teaching at the German Jordanian University and all of the universities in Jordan.
The 9th International Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer made a special issue on “Numerical Fluids 2014” in AMC Elsevier Journal
The Applied Mathematics and Computation Journal published a special issue on Numerical Fluids 2014. This issue was edited by Dia Zeidan of the School of Basic Sciences and Humanities of the German Jordanian University. A complete URL for this special issue can be found here:
Numerical Fluids is an annual series of symposia on computational and applied mathematics for fluid flows, heat and mass transfer problems and associated themes. It aims to bring together scientists at all levels interested in mathematical, numerical and experimental aspects of fluid flows, heat and mass transfer problems. It has provided a high level international forum for the presentation of the latest research results and the exchange of thoughts by many participants across the globe, said Dia Zeidan in the editorial of the special issue.
In September 2014, Numerical Fluids 2014 was held jointly with the 12th International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics - ICNAAM 2014. It is an International Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer. It included five keynote lectures, thirty eight talks for panel and specialized sessions. More than fifty science and engineering researchers from more than twenty countries attended Numerical Fluids 2014, covering extensive themes and multi-purpose interest related topics.
After successful holding of Numerical Fluids 2014, we compiled together high-quality papers made this special issue in Applied Mathematics and Computation. As a result, over fifteen papers on applied and numerical mathematics for fluid flow problems and related topics were selected for a special issue in AMC entitled the 9th International Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer - Numerical Fluids 2014. This ended up with an outstanding special issue with twelve unique, high-quality papers after going through a rigorous peer-reviewing process for this special issue to improve their quality further for readers of Applied Mathematics and Computation, said Dia Zeidan in the editorial.
2015 Research Excellence Grant
Congratulations to Dr Inshad Jumh, from the Division of Physics, on receiving the 2015 Research Excellence Grant from the Scientific Research Support Fund (SRF) of Jordan.
SRSF Research Excellence Grant is the largest ever Jordan research and novelty program, which offers funding to raise the level of excellence in Jordan’s science base.
Dr Inshad has been awarded about 70000 JD in two different projects. The first project entitled "Polymeric nanocomposites doped with magnetically aligned nanoparticles for monovalent and multivalent ion rejection and electromagnetic wave polarizer". The project aimed to define new methods of understanding polymeric nanocomposites doped with magnetically aligned nanoparticles for monovalent and multivalent ion rejection and electromagnetic wave polarizer.Together with her collaborators form Leibniz institute for analytical sciences in Dortmund, Germany, she hopes to develop a novel ways of polymer matrix nanocomposite membranes which is fabricated by combining polymeric materials with nanoparticle.
The second project titled "Quantum dots (nanoparticles): Novel synthesis and drug delivery applications" is a collaboration scientific research between the German Jordanian University and the South Valley University in Egypt. This project is generously supported and funded by "Egypt-Jordan Cooperation Program for Scientific Research". The main goal is to design novel biocompatible-sensing drug carriers as a safe alternative to magnetic and radioactive imaging contrast agents commonly used in preclinical drug screening and delivery research.
Congratulations to Dr Inshad on this outstanding achievement and also to the School of Basic Sciences and Humanities for what has been a very successful 2015.
Dr Husam Abu-Safe at the 4th Nano Today Conference
Dr Husam Abu-Safe from the Division of Physics recently spoke about his recent research development at the 4th Nano Today Conference held at the JW Marriot Marquis Hotel Dubai, UAE, on December 6-10, 2015. The presentation was about his recent work and development on freestanding silicene which is one atom thick layer of silicon similar in structure to the world renowned graphene.
