    Seismic Reservoir Characterization of Duvernay Shale with Quantitative Interpretation and Induced Seismicity Considerations — A Case Study.Satinder Chopra, Ritesh Kumar Sharma, Amit Kumar Ray, Hossein Nemati, Ray Morin, Brian Schulte & David D’Amico - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):T185-T197.
    The Devonian Duvernay Formation in northwest central Alberta, Canada, has become a hot play in the past few years due to its richness in liquid and gaseous hydrocarbon resources. The oil and gas generation in this shale formation made it the source rock for many oil and gas fields in its vicinity. We attempt to showcase the characterization of Duvernay Formation using 3D multicomponent seismic data and integrating it with the available well log and other relevant data. This has been (...)

    Intergenerational Differences in the Preferences for Family Values: An Indian Perspective.Amit Kumar Tripathi - 2014 - Journal of Human Values 20 (1):19-31.
    In the collectivist culture of India, family occupies a central place in organizing social and personal lives of the people. However, the forces of industrialization and urbanization are changing the life style and leading to reprioritization of values. Against this backdrop this study examined the pattern of actual and desired family values in the context of ecology, family type and generation. The sample was drawn from urban, semi-urban and rural areas in central India representing parent–child pairs belonging to joint and (...)

    Thematic Interpretation of Heliborne Magnetic Data for Delineation of Concealed Regional Structural Fabric in the Narnaul-Palsana Tract, North Delhi Fold Belt, India.Amit Kumar Pathak, G. V. Giridhar & Anand Kumar Chaturvedi - 2018 - Interpretation 6 (2):T367-T375.
    The North Delhi Fold Belt exposure of the Delhi Supergroup of rocks is significant for its structurally controlled uranium mineralization. The Narnaul-Palsana tract within the Khetri subbasin of the NDFB comprises the arenaceous Alwar and argillaceous Ajabgarh Groups of the Delhi Supergroup. The metasedimentary sequence has been subjected to polyphase deformation and igneous intrusion. We used heliborne magnetic data to enhance our geologic understanding of the area. Total magnetic intensity data are gridded and enhanced to resolve the magnetic anomalies. The (...)

    Scientific Misconduct: A Perspective From India.Husain Sabir, Subhash Kumbhare, Amit Parate, Rajesh Kumar & Suroopa Das - 2015 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 18 (2):177-184.
    Misconduct in medical science research is an unfortunate reality. Science, for the most part, operates on the basis of trust. Researchers are expected to carry out their work and report their findings honestly. But, sadly, that is not how science always gets done. Reports keep surfacing from various countries about work being plagiarised, results which were doctored and data fabricated. Scientific misconduct is scourge afflicting the field of science, unfortunately with little impact in developing countries like India especially in health (...)

    This paper delves into a two-agent scheduling problem in which two agents are competing for a single resource. Each agent has a set of jobs to be processed by a single machine. The processing time, release time, weight, and the due dates of each job are known in advance. Both agents have their objectives, which are conflicting in nature. The first agent tries to minimize the total completion time, while the second agent tries to minimize the number of tardy jobs. (...)

    Two-Agent Single Machine Order Acceptance Scheduling Problem to Maximize Net Revenue.Jiaji Li, Yuvraj Gajpal, Amit Kumar Bhardwaj, Huangen Chen & Yuanyuan Liu - 2021 - Complexity 2021:1-14.
    The paper considers two-agent order acceptance scheduling problems with different scheduling criteria. Two agents have a set of jobs to be processed by a single machine. The processing time and due date of each job are known in advance. In the order accepting scheduling problem, jobs are allowed to be rejected. The objective of the problem is to maximize the net revenue while keeping the weighted number of tardy jobs for the second agent within a predetermined value. A mixed-integer linear (...)

    A Bayesian Multiresolution Approach for Noise Removal in Medical Magnetic Resonance Images.Sima Sahu, Harsh Vikram Singh, Basant Kumar & Amit Kumar Singh - 2019 - Journal of Intelligent Systems 29 (1):189-201.
    A Bayesian approach using wavelet coefficient modeling is proposed for de-noising additive white Gaussian noise in medical magnetic resonance imaging. In a parallel acquisition process, the magnetic resonance image is affected by white Gaussian noise, which is additive in nature. A normal inverse Gaussian probability distribution function is taken for modeling the wavelet coefficients. A Bayesian approach is implemented for filtering the noisy wavelet coefficients. The maximum likelihood estimator and median absolute deviation estimator are used to find the signal parameters, (...)

    A Seismic to Simulation Unconventional Workflow Using Automated Fault-Detection Attributes.Jesse Lomask, Luisalic Hernandez, Veronica Liceras, Amit Kumar & Anna Khadeeva - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (3):SJ41-SJ48.
    Natural fracture networks are used in unconventional reservoir simulators to model pressure and saturation changes in fractured rocks. These fracture networks are often derived from well data or well data combined with a variety of seismic-derived attributes to provide spatial information away from the wells. In cases in which there is a correlation between faults and fractures, the use of a fault indicator can provide additional constraints on the spatial location of the natural fractures. We use a fault attribute based (...)

    Proximal Support Vector Machine-Based Hybrid Approach for Edge Detection in Noisy Images.Rajendra K. Ray, Manoj Thakur, Deepak Kumar & Subit K. Jain - 2019 - Journal of Intelligent Systems 29 (1):1315-1328.
    We propose a novel edge detector in the presence of Gaussian noise with the use of proximal support vector machine. The edges of a noisy image are detected using a two-stage architecture: smoothing of image is first performed using regularized anisotropic diffusion, followed by the classification using PSVM, termed as regularized anisotropic diffusion-based PSVM method. In this process, a feature vector is formed for a pixel using the denoised coefficient’s class and the local orientations to detect edges in all possible (...)

    The Making of Indian Diplomacy: A Critique of Eurocentrism by Deep K. Datta-Ray.Ananta Kumar Giri - 2018 - Philosophy East and West 68 (3):1020-1023.
    In this book, Deep K. Datta-Ray strives to explore some of the deep foundations of Indian diplomacy with and beyond the discourse of modernity, especially its preoccupation with power, control, and violence. Datta-Ray argues that modern diplomacy is rooted in a model of violence and control, and Indian diplomacy is striving to move beyond this. Indian diplomacy draws inspiration from the civilizational ethos of and preoccupation of India with dharma, right conduct, and a non-violent way of being with the world. (...)

    Seismic Reservoir Characterization of Utica-Point Pleasant Shale with Efforts at Fracability Evaluation — Part 2: A Case Study.Ritesh Kumar Sharma, Satinder Chopra, James Keay, Hossein Nemati & Larry Lines - 2018 - Interpretation: SEG 6 (2):T325-T336.
    The Utica Formation in eastern Ohio possesses all the prerequisites for being a successful unconventional play. Attempts at seismic reservoir characterization of the Utica Formation have been discussed in part 1, in which, after providing the geologic background of the area of study, the preconditioning of prestack seismic data, well-log correlation, and building of robust low-frequency models for prestack simultaneous impedance inversion were explained. All these efforts were aimed at identification of sweet spots in the Utica Formation in terms of (...)

  28. Quantum Computing.Amit Hagar & Michael Cuffaro - 2019 - Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    Combining physics, mathematics and computer science, quantum computing and its sister discipline of quantum information have developed in the past few decades from visionary ideas to two of the most fascinating areas of quantum theory. General interest and excitement in quantum computing was initially triggered by Peter Shor (1994) who showed how a quantum algorithm could exponentially “speed-up” classical computation and factor large numbers into primes far more efficiently than any (known) classical algorithm. Shor’s algorithm was soon followed by several (...)

    Huw Price (1996, 2002, 2003) argues that causal-dynamical theories that aim to explain thermodynamic asymmetry in time are misguided. He points out that in seeking a dynamical factor responsible for the general tendency of entropy to increase, these approaches fail to appreciate the true nature of the problem in the foundations of statistical mechanics (SM). I argue that it is Price who is guilty of misapprehension of the issue at stake. When properly understood, causal-dynamical approaches in the foundations of SM (...)

    The Hebbian Paradigm Reintegrated: Local Reverberations as Internal Representations.Daniel J. Amit - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (4):617-626.
    The neurophysiological evidence from the Miyashita group's experiments on monkeys as well as cognitive experience common to us all suggests that local neuronal spike rate distributions might persist in the absence of their eliciting stimulus. In Hebb's cell-assembly theory, learning dynamics stabilize such self-maintaining reverberations. Quasi-quantitive modeling of the experimental data on internal representations in association-cortex modules identifies the reverberations as the internal code. This leads to cognitive and neurophysiological predictions, many following directly from the language used to describe the (...)

    Making Images/Making Bodies: Visibilizing and Disciplining Through Magnetic Resonance Imaging.Amit Prasad - 2005 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 30 (2):291-316.
    This article analyzes how the medical gaze made possible by MRI operates in radiological laboratories. It argues that although computer-assisted medical imaging technologies such as MRI shift radiological analysis to the realm of cyborg visuality, radiological analysis continues to depend on visualization produced by other technologies and diagnostic inputs. In the radiological laboratory, MRI is used to produce diverse sets of images of the internal parts of the body to zero in and visually extract the pathology. Visual extraction of pathology (...)

  34. Kant and Non-Euclidean Geometry.Amit Hagar - 2008 - Kant-Studien 99 (1):80-98.
    It is occasionally claimed that the important work of philosophers, physicists, and mathematicians in the nineteenth and in the early twentieth centuries made Kant’s critical philosophy of geometry look somewhat unattractive. Indeed, from the wider perspective of the discovery of non-Euclidean geometries, the replacement of Newtonian physics with Einstein’s theories of relativity, and the rise of quantificational logic, Kant’s philosophy seems “quaint at best and silly at worst”.1 While there is no doubt that Kant’s transcendental project involves his own conceptions (...)

    I discuss the philosophical implications that the rising new science of quantum computing may have on the philosophy of computer science. While quantum algorithms leave the notion of Turing-Computability intact, they may re-describe the abstract space of computational complexity theory hence militate against the autonomous character of some of the concepts and categories of computer science.

    A Philosopher Looks at Quantum Information Theory.Amit Hagar - 2003 - Philosophy of Science 70 (4):752-775.
    Recent suggestions to supply quantum mechanics (QM) with realistic foundations by reformulating it in light of quantum information theory (QIT) are examined and are found wanting by pointing to a basic conceptual problem that QIT itself ignores, namely, the measurement problem. Since one cannot ignore the measurement problem and at the same time pretend to be a realist, as they stand, the suggestions to reformulate QM in light of QIT are nothing but instrumentalism in disguise.

    Purchasing Ethics and Inter-Organizational Buyer–Supplier Relational Determinants: A Conceptual Framework. [REVIEW]Amit Saini - 2010 - Journal of Business Ethics 95 (3):439 - 455.
    This study examines unethical purchasing practices from the perspective of buyer-supplier relationships. Based on a review of the inter-organizational literature and qualitative data from in-depth interviews with purchase managers from diverse industries, a conceptual framework is proposed, and theoretical arguments leading to propositions are presented. Taking into consideration the presence or absence of an explicit or implicit company policy sanctioning ethically questionable activities, unethical purchasing practices are conceptualized as a three-tiered set. Three broad themes emerge from the analysis toward explaining (...)

    Effect of Self-Accountability on Self-Regulatory Behaviour: A Quasi-Experiment.Amit Dhiman, Arindam Sen & Priyank Bhardwaj - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 148 (1):79-97.
    An individual’s accountability to oneself leads to self-regulatory behaviour. A field experiment afforded an opportunity to test this relation, given that external accountability conditions were absent. A single group pre-test/post-test design was used to test the hypothesis. A group of full-time resident management students, n ≈ 550, take four meals during the day in the institute mess. As a part of the experiment, food wastage in the form of leftovers on the plates of subjects was measured. As a pre-test, the (...)

  40. Explaining the Unobserved—Why Quantum Mechanics Ain’T Only About Information.Amit Hagar & Meir Hemmo - 2006 - Foundations of Physics 36 (9):1295-1234.
    A remarkable theorem by Clifton, Bub and Halvorson (2003) (CBH) characterizes quantum theory in terms of information--theoretic principles. According to Bub (2004, 2005) the philosophical significance of the theorem is that quantum theory should be regarded as a ``principle'' theory about (quantum) information rather than a ``constructive'' theory about the dynamics of quantum systems. Here we criticize Bub's principle approach arguing that if the mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics remains intact then there is no escape route from solving the measurement (...)

    A recent attempt to compute a (recursion‐theoretic) noncomputable function using the quantum adiabatic algorithm is criticized and found wanting. Quantum algorithms may outperform classical algorithms in some cases, but so far they retain the classical (recursion‐theoretic) notion of computability. A speculation is then offered as to where the putative power of quantum computers may come from.

    Anomie and the Marketing Function: The Role of Control Mechanisms.Amit Saini & Mike Krush - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 83 (4):845-862.
    The authors use the theoretical notion of anomie to examine the impact of top management's control mechanisms on the environment of the marketing function. Based on a literature review and in-depth field interviews with marketing managers in diverse industries, a conceptual model is proposed that incorporates the two managerial control mechanisms, viz. output and process control, and relates their distinctive influence to anomie in the marketing function. Three contingency variables, i.e., resource scarcity, power, and ethics codification, are proposed to moderate (...)

    Loop quantum gravity predicts that spatial geometry is fundamentally discrete. Whether this discreteness entails a departure from exact Lorentz symmetry is a matter of dispute that has generated an interesting methodological dilemma. On one hand one would like the theory to agree with current experiments, but, so far, tests in the highest energies we can manage show no such sign of departure. On the other hand one would like the theory to yield testable predictions, and deformations of exact Lorentz symmetry (...)

    I discuss a rarely mentioned correspondence between Einstein and Swann on the constructive approach to the special theory of relativity, in which Einstein points out that the attempts to construct a dynamical explanation of relativistic kinematical effects require postulating a fundamental length scale in the level of the dynamics. I use this correspondence to shed light on several issues under dispute in current philosophy of spacetime that were highlighted recently in Harvey Brown’s monograph Physical Relativity, namely, Einstein’s view on the (...)

    Strategic Risk-Taking Propensity: The Role of Ethical Climate and Marketing Output Control.Amit Saini & Kelly D. Martin - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 90 (4):593-606.
    In the wake of the current financial crises triggered by risky mortgage-backed securities, the question of ethics and risk-taking is once again at the front and center for both practitioners and academics. Although risk-taking is considered an integral part of strategic decision-making, sometimes firms could be propelled to take risks driven by reasons other than calculated strategic choices. The authors argue that a firm's risk-taking propensity is impacted by its ethical climate (egoistic or benevolent) and its emphasis on output control (...)
