Oyegue profpato2014@gmail.com Sunday M. Ogbonmwan profpato2014@gmail.com <p>The focus of this paper is to present a stochastic model to capture the random behavior of the number of reported daily infections due to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) in Nigeria. The model expressed in form of a distribution function has five parameters. The model was fitted to the logarithm of the reported daily number of infection cases for the time period March 18th - June 11th, 2020. While the results obtained established the adequacy of the model in fitting and explaining the random behavior of the number of reported daily infections, it was also possible to use the model to study the situation of the number of infections exceeding certain thresholds. The procedure for the determination of these thresholds was established and a number of them were estimated for some given return periods.</p> 2020-09-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) https://earthlinepublishers.com/index.php/ejms/article/view/237 Detour Extra Straight Lines in the Euclidean Plane 2020-09-18T15:57:37+00:00 I. Szalay szalay.istvan22@gmail.com B. Szalay szalay.istvan22@gmail.com <p>Using the theory of exploded numbers by the axiom-systems of real numbers and Euclidean geometry, we explode the Euclidean plane. Exploding the Euclidean straight lines we get super straight lines. The extra straight line is the window phenomenon of super straight line. In general, the extra straight lines are curves in Euclidean sense, but they have more similar properties to Euclidean straight lines. On the other hand, with respect of parallelism we find a surprising property: there are detour straight lines.</p> 2020-09-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) https://earthlinepublishers.com/index.php/ejms/article/view/239 The Interpolative Berinde Weak Mapping Theorem in η-Cone Pentagonal Metric Space 2020-09-26T17:00:51+00:00 Clement Boateng Ampadu drampadu@hotmail.com <p>In this paper we introduce a concept of η-cone pentagonal metric space, which combines the notions of cone pentagonal metric space [1], and η-cone metric space [2].

The model was formulated to reduce the cost coefficient in a plumbing system. A new hybrid method of optimization was constructed by combining the search abilities of Jaya-based algorithm and pollination intelligence algorithm, and was used to solve the designed model. The model was implemented by obtaining geometrical information of a water distribution network layout stationed at Gaa Odota, Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. Result obtained from the model showed a significant reduction in the cost coefficient compared to that of the study area.</p> 2020-10-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) https://earthlinepublishers.com/index.php/ejms/article/view/252 Influence of Radiation on Magneto-hydrodynamics Flow Over an Exponentially Stretching Sheet Embedded in a Thermally Stratified Porous Medium in the Presence of Heat Source 2020-10-26T17:15:36+00:00 Isaac Ogechi Senge Sengs4mail@yahoo.com Emmanuel Olubayo Oghre eoghre@yahoo.com Idongesit Fred Ekang idongesitekang@uniuyo.edu.ng <p>The influence of radiation on magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) boundary layer flow over an exponentially stretching sheet embedded in a thermally stratified porous medium in the presence of heat source and suction/blowing was investigated.</p> <p>Similarity transformation was used to convert the governing equations from partial differential equations into a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations.

C. Shiralashetti scshiralashetti@kud.ac.in Lata Lamani latalamani@gmail.com <p>This article gives an effective strategy to solve nonlinear stochastic Itô-Volterra integral equations (NSIVIE). These equations can be reduced to a system of nonlinear algebraic equations with unknown coefficients, using Bernoulli wavelets, their operational matrix of integration (OMI), stochastic operational matrix of integration (SOMI) and these equations can be solved numerically. Error analysis of the proposed method is given. Moreover, the results obtained are compared to exact solutions with numerical examples to show that the method described is accurate and precise.</p> 2020-11-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) https://earthlinepublishers.com/index.php/ejms/article/view/260 Wardowski Type Characterization of the Interpolative Berinde Weak Fixed Point Theorem 2020-11-16T09:21:02+00:00 Clement Boateng Ampadu drampadu@hotmail.com <p>In [1], Wardowski introduced the <em>F</em>-contractions, and used it to prove the Banach contraction principle.

Osagiede festus.opone@physci.uniben.edu <p>In this paper, we introduced the discrete analogue of the continuous Marshall-Olkin Weibull distribution using the discrete concentration approach. Some mathematical properties of the proposed discrete distribution such as the probability mass function, cumulative distribution function, survival function, hazard rate function, second rate of failure, probability generating function, quantile function and moments are derived. The method of maximum likelihood estimation is employed to estimate the unknown parameters of the proposed distribution. The applicability of the proposed discrete distribution was examined using an over-dispersed and under-dispersed data sets.</p> 2020-11-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c)
