  • Essential Oil Constituents of Summer Savory Plants Propagated and Adapted
           under Egyptian Climate

    • Abstract: The essential oils obtained by water distillation from aerial parts of summer savory (Satureja hortensis L.) yielded 1.2% v/w on a dry weight. Eight constituents representing 99.7% of the S. hortensis essential oils were identified. The major constituents of S. hortensis essential oils were γ-terpinene (46.4%), carvacrol (40.2%) and α-thujene (8.8%). The obtained constituents from S. hortensis essential oil under egyptian conditions grouped into three classes which are Monoterpene Hydrocarbons (MH), Oxygenated Monoterpenes (OM) and Sesquiterpene Hydrocarbons (SH). It is evident that the MH reached its highest concentrations (57.8%) followed by OM (41.3%) in essential oil compared with the minor chemical class (SH) (0.6%).

  • Evaluating the Performance of 16 Egyptian Wheat Varieties Using
           Self-Organizing Map (SOM) and Cluster Analysis

    • Abstract: To evaluate the performance of 16 wheat varieties based on agronomic parameters using self-organizing map and cluster analysis, a field experiment was conducted during 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 winter seasons at the farm of the National Research Center at Nubaria district, Albehira Governor ate, Egypt. In cluster analysis, all the studied characters were used to construct a distance matrix using the Euclidian coefficient and used to generate dendrogram showing dissimilarity among all the wheat varieties, distance matrix based on Euclidian coefficient for the 16 wheat varieties revealed that dissimilarity ranged from 0.62 between Gemmiza 10 and Beniswef 5-7.73 between Beniswef 6 and Sakha 93, which reveal the diversity among wheat varieties. Cluster analysis classified the 16 varieties into nine clusters whereas, self-organizing map classified the 16 varieties into 11 clusters which accounting for 95% of the variation. The clusters in SOM consist of nodes where, varieties in the same node are more similar than varieties in different nodes in the same cluster. However, varieties in the same cluster are more similar than varieties in different clusters. The results revealed that varieties with higher grain and straw yield were higher in plant height (cm), number of spikes per meter square, spike length (cm) and number of grain per spike suggesting that grain and straw yield were strongly correlated with those parameters than other parameters. Also, the results suggested that using self organizing map is helpful to classify varieties clearly and more interpretable than cluster analysis.

  • Botanical Composition Improvement with Subterranean Clover (Trifolium
           subterraneum L.) in Grass Mixtures

    • Abstract: Botanical composition of cocksfoot and tall fescue, pure and in mixtures with three subspecies subterranean clover were investigated in field trial in the Institute of Forage Crops, Pleven, Bulgaria (2011-2013). The next ratios were used: Grass+Trifolium subterraneum ssp. brachycalicinum (50:50%), Grass+Trifolium subterraneum ssp. yaninicum (50:50%), Grass+Trifolium subterraneum ssp. subterraneum (50:50%), Grass+Trifolium subterraneum ssp. brachycalicinum+Trifolium subterraneum ssp. yaninicum+Trifolium subterraneum ssp. subterraneum (25:25:25:25%). It was found that inclusion the subterranean clover as a component of mixtures with cocksfoot and tall fescue had positive effect on the botanical composition and decreased the weed infestation in the swards. Trifolium subterraneum ssp. brachycalicinum in mixture with cocksfoot had faster growing rate as well the biggest part in the sward (31.0%) and reduced the weeds half. Trifolium subterraneum ssp. brachycalicinum in mixtures with tall fescue had small part and decreased the weeds by 28.1%. Subterranean clover as a legume component contributed to increasing the leaf/stem ratio of cocksfoot and tall fescue.

  • Ant Colony Optimization: Approach for an Obstacle

    • Abstract: This study presents a robust optimization algorithm based on updating Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) through hybridization with Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) method and information exchange concept for the purpose of covering ACO limitations in case of an obstacle was on the ant’s path to food source. The global optimal solution found by the proposed hybrid ACO and ABC (ACOBC) algorithm is considered to be as novel technique to find the shortest path when the vision to food source location is not clear because of an obstacle. Both of the ACO and ABC methods share the globally best solutions through the information exchange process between the ants and bees. Based on the results, the exchange process significantly increases exploration and exploitation of the hybrid method. Besides, a focused elitism scheme is introduced to enhance the performance of the developed algorithm. The validity of the ACOBC method is verified using several continuous test problems and a typical discrete problem, called Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). The proposed method is found to be a competitive optimization tool for solving continuous and discrete problems. Obstacle model study is very important due to its significance in solving many complex networking problems connected to real human life situations where real data are not available.

  • Stores Location Model For Distribution Network Design: An Effective
           Variable neighborhood Search Approach for a Two Level Capacitated Location
           Allocation Problem

    • Abstract: Whatever the field of activity, the design of the distribution network is a strategic decision that affects both the commercial performance as the tactical and operational management of the supply chain. In this article, we address a problem of distribution network extension. The decision to open a new store and the choice of its location in an existing distribution network takes into account the customer demand and service objectives of the relevant geographic area. It also takes into account other logistics and techniques parameters. In this article we suggest a model of the distribution network, identical to a TLCLAP model (Two Level Capacitated Location Allocation Problem), with a list of parameters and logistical constraints related to business and a resolution approach based on an effective Variable Neighborhood Search VNS method.
