Though my earlier specialization was in pure algebra, in keeping with my research philosophy, I decided that mathematics could be made of immense significance in finding a solution to the real world's everyday problems. I have published hundreds of papers and more than 15 books in Pure Mathematics, yet I always had an urge and a frustration that mathematics must be used in the service of the suffering humanity. Some of the socially relevant issues which will benefit humanity to which I have applied fuzzy and neutrosophic mathematics are: Service to HIV/AIDS through research 1. Socio-psychological problems of migrant labourers with HIV/AIDS 2. Dissemination of information and awareness about AIDS 3. Street Children and HIV/AIDS prevalence 4. Allocation of funds for HIV/AIDS prevention and cure 5. Community Mobilization for HIV/AIDS and Women Empowerment 6. Teaching about AIDS to school-children in non-school environment Study of school dropouts and child labourers 7. School dropouts and the child-labour problem 8.

Socio-psychological problems faced by migrant labourers as HIV/AIDS patients * Volunteers who were interested in serving HIV/AIDS patients were absent in the years 2001 or earlier. The social stigma associated with the disease was so strong that no volunteer would work for them. So, in the year 2001 I took up a project with TNSACS (Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society) and under this project I met over 100 migrant labourers affected with HIV/AIDS in the Tambaram Sanatorium. I discussed their problems, came to know their histories and authored the book: "Love. Life. Lust. Loss : 101 Real Life Stories of Migration and AIDS." The book is enclosed. We studied the levels of knowledge and awareness relating to STD/HIV/AIDS existing among the migrant labourers in Tamil Nadu; and their attitude, risk behavior and promiscuous sexual practice of migrant labourers. This study was mainly motivated from the data collected by us of 100 HIV/AIDS infected persons who belonged to the category that comes to be defined as migrant labourers. Almost all of them were natives of (remote) villages and had migrated to the city, typically, ―in search of jobs‖. We have noticed in our study as to how, starting from small villages with hopes and dreams these people had set out to the city, only to succumb to various temptations, and finally all their dreams turned into horrid nightmares. Our research included probing into areas like: patterns and need of migration to get work, vulnerabilities and risk exposure in an alien surrounding, ‘new’ sexual practices/ attitudes, access to health services, experiences and understanding of stigma and discrimination, effect of displacement, coping mechanism etc. We also study how the new economic policies of liberalization and globalization has affected people to lose their traditional livelihood and sources of local employment, forcing them into migration. Our study has been conducted among this informal sector mainly because migrant labourers are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS infection, when compared to the local population for reasons which include poverty, powerlessness, inaccessibility to health services, unstable lifestyles such as insecurity in jobs, lack of skills, alienation from hometown, lack of family binding. Moreover, migrant labourers are also not organized into trade unions, as a result of which, they are made victims of horrendous exploitation: they are paid less than the minimum wages, they don‘t receive legal protection, they are unaware of worker‘s rights issues, and essentially lack stability. *For more refer: Books Sl.

Dissemination of information and awareness of AIDS* Today’s biggest challenge in the health sector faced by the nation is the control of the spread of HIV/AIDS infection among its citizens. We should not neglect this threat like Africa did. Currently it faces a terrible crisis on all fronts because of this problem of uncontrollable spread of HIV/AIDS. So it is important that the government takes strong measures to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. One of the basic method of prevention lies in making the people aware of this dangerous disease, which has no cure at all. The awareness can be made through use of alternative media and regular features like advertisement in dailies, T. V. shows, skits and dramas, posters in buses and other forms of transport. We have analysed the best methods using fuzzy theory. As a first part, to tackle this problem we formulated a linguistic questionnaire. We made 150 people, mainly from rural areas, including NGOs, doctors and social workers from that area to fill in the questionnaire. The questionnaires of illiterate respondents was filled out by us. As a result of our study, we derived the following conclusions. Out of the 150 interviewed 123 of them felt that the awareness of HIV/AIDS should be through small skits in television. Some 115 of them felt that street theatre and puppet shows can aid a lot in the dissemination of information pertaining to HIV/AIDS. A large section of them emphasized that the whole presentation must not be in a serious or gloomy/threatening way, but the message should be said in a lighter vein. They feel that instead of immediately provoking a negative response, comedy could elicit them to think it over again and again. Around 88% of the respondents felt that if popular actors/ actresses conveyed the message of safe habits in cinema/ television, the effect on the viewers would be more significant. Over 65% felt that songs about HIV/AIDS could also help a great deal in making the rural masses knowledgeable about these diseases. *For more refer: Books Sl. No. 23 and 24, Combined Research Paper No. 77 and Conference Papers No. 183, 200, 212, 224, 294, 308 and 323 6 3. Street children and AIDS prevalence* It is estimated that there are 60,000 street children in Vijayawada. Further statistics from the Andhra Pradesh State AIDS Control Society indicate that 3.6% of the HIV positive cases occur in children under 14 years of age. Several spine- chilling information about their general life and habits are narrated. In our study we are not interested in going into their lives or behaviour or their ignorance. We are mainly interested in analysing, what has driven them out of their homes? What is the role of the nation/ politicians? Why does the law remain imperfect in rehabilitation of these children? What is the problem in the functioning and modelling of the Juvenile homes that causes these children not to stay there? Does it confirm that children are not vote banks? These children are innoncent lot who have inherited the stigmatised disease from their parents and for no fault of theirs, they suffer discrimination and ill-treatment from others. Also, some of these children become infected by HIV/AIDS due to their bad habits even before they reach the age of 20. * For more refer: Conference Papers No. 200, 224 and 235 7 4. Allocation of funds for HIV/AIDS prevention and cure* The allocation of funds for the benefit of the HIV/AIDS patients is a sensitive issue. For, the expert cannot arbitrarily allot money to several heads like creating awareness programs for uneducated rural women, drivers and agriculturists, HIV/AIDS affected children, children orphaned due to HIV/AIDS parents and so on and so forth. Also the type of programs scheduled to be given in radio or T.V or posters on buses, autos etc., or advertisement through newspapers or awareness education etc., what should be adapted to which group must be decided. We for the first time use the transportation model to analyse the allocation of funds to HIV/AIDS patients. Using the Vogel‘s Approximation Method we arrive at the following conclusions. In rural areas maximum amount is allotted to create awareness among uneducated women through T.V and radio only. For this will benefit 1,92,000 women if Rs. 24 lakhs is spent on awareness by T.V/radio. Likewise by spending Rs.22 lakhs for HIV/AIDS affected children, 1,76,000 children will be benefited. Here we give the amount to be spent, the mode of awareness program and the number of people who are benefited by it. *For more refer: Ph.D. Thesis of T. Johnson, Conference Papers No. 200, 294 and 303. 8 5. Community Mobilization for HIV/AIDS and Women's Empowerment* This analysis deals with the study of generating Women‘s Empowerment as the right force behind an active community mobilization using Fuzzy Associative memories (FAM) model. We further look into the aspects of how such a social and economic empowering of women could give rise to better prevention and care programs relating to the AIDS epidemic. In this study also a field work was carried out by me with my students. We visited the hospital in Tambaram for HIV/AIDS patients and met the women patients and gathered their problems which is used in our study. It is very sad to note that most of these women patients lived like orphans with no one to take care of them. Several of them were terminally ill. Out of the 100 women patients interviewd by us, 97 of them were infected by their husbands who were HIV/AIDS patients, which only brings to light two factors: first the careless attitude of men and second, the ignorance among women about the disease. These information was analysed using fuzzy models and published as a book by TNSACS (Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society) entitled "Women.Work. Worth. Womb" enclosed with this. This book is for free distribution. *For more refer: Books Sl. No. 16 and 18, Combined Research Papers No.32, Conference Papers No. 195, 303 and 308. 9 6. Teaching about AIDS to school-children in a non-school environment* The issue of HIV/AIDS is a much talked about and several of the educators have agreed that it should be taught in schools as part of the school curriculum. The question is how much of this is mentioned and discussed in schools? The subject may crop up in the language classes as a topic for essay writing. It may be in the Biology class as a research topic and how much of it is mentioned in the Health science lessons? Teachers are inhibited when it comes to mentioning this issue let alone discuss it. Thus to make school children aware of HIV/AIDS is very difficult in the classroom or in the school atmosphere. Meeting youths and youth leaders of some schools and representatives of classes above eight standard we derived these suggestions from them. The meeting with them was analyzed using fuzzy theory as this concept is a delicate one involving a lot of emotions or feelings and the following suggestions are derived: 1. Youth participants were not inhibited and willing to learn about HIV/AIDS only in non-school environment with the classes handled by an expert and not by a teacher of the same school. 2. The absence of their teachers gave more involvement and free expression of these students. 3. Group discussion with experts made them free to ask their doubts regarding HIV/AIDS. 4. Most of them felt that interactions in the non-school environment like regular lectures, workshops, seminars, talk and video shows can educate them about HIV/AIDS. 5. Devoted teachers can alone bring out the best from these school children. * For more refer: Conference Papers No. 200 and 207 10 7. School dropouts and the child labour problem* The child labour problem is the highest form of slavery and the first human rights issues to arouse international concern. Yet according to the latest census reports of 200 million Indian children in the age group of 5 to 14 about 11.3 million are labourers. In fact, over 60 million child labourers in India work in carpet, bangle, matches, firework, and pottery making industries and as a domestic helps. The carpet industry alone has 3,00,000 children working in it. A close look at the child labour situation in Delhi show that of the 3 million children in the age group of 6-14 years, a million are child labourers of which 2,00,000 work, as domestic help and almost an equal number are bonded labourers. To everyone‘s knowledge, no proper measure is taken legally or even humanly to save these children. A major reason is that because of the lack of political will and inaction mainly because children are not vote banks. The motivation for the application of fuzzy set theory to the design of databases and information storage lies in the need to handle imprecise information. The database can accommodate imprecise information, can store and manipulate not only precise facts, but also subjective expert opinions, judgements and values specified in linguistic terms. The approach to child labour is often status-quoist, and at other times casteist, and no political group is willing to divert its energies towards the solution of this problem. While India’s communist parties blame child labour solely on poverty, the right-wing parties have at times expressed the view that child labour is essentially skilled labour that has to be utilized. NGOs and other volunteer organizations, of course, have their intervention and rescue programs; but unfortunately not all NGOs working towards the eradication of child labour are above board, some of them pump up the figures, in order to obtain substantially greater amounts of funds. While this haunts the child labour problem, we decided to study the lives of child labourers, in order to comprehend the larger social problem, i.e. child labour. We chose to study child labourers who are employed in restaurants, hotels, teashops and other eatery joints. For the purpose of our study, we have selected a sample of 29 children from the age group of 11 to 14 years who are employed in small teashops and mini-hotels in Kasimedu in Tamil Nadu. We queried into their backgrounds, their ambivalence towards education etc. We found out among our sample that only five of the children weren‘t interested in reading; for the rest of them education was stopped due to poverty. The children, on an average, work for ten hours a day. They also mentioned pathetically that their earning was crucial for the sustenance of their families. Among the 29 children interviewed, 27 belonged to the oppressed dalit community and 2 were from the Most Backward Castes (MBC). Their earnings were meager and ranged from Rs.20 to Rs. 50 per day. We have used Fuzzy Associative Memories to analyse this problem and derived interesting conclusions. *For more refer: Post-graduate Research Project No.30, Combined Research Papers No. 40, 45, 48 and 64, Conference Papers No. 128, 197, 269, 273, 304 and 315 11 8. School dropouts in primary education* We use Fuzzy Cognitive Maps to study the dropouts in primary education. We construct a teacher-student-model in primary education using some basic nature of teachers-like devoted teacher, trained teacher, untrained teacher, friendly approach of the teacher towards the student etc. In primary education, teachers play a major role, in not only creating interest in small children but also vitally affect the dropouts in primary education. By using the Fuzzy Cognitive Maps we obtain the hidden pattern of the cause for the dropouts in primary education. The hidden pattern cannot be found out using any other method. Secondly we also construct a parent-children model to study dropouts in primary education using Fuzzy Cognitive Map. We have constructed this model using the following concepts: namely, the educational status of the parents, economical status of the parents, fee structure and inability of parents to teach their children in a language alien to them and analyze how they affect dropouts in primary education. We present the opinion of two experts. The main aim of the study is to find the cause of dropouts in primary classes, which seems to be a major problem, as it largely affects the literary percentage of our nation. We analyse the cause of dropouts and the parents role in denying a child even a primary education. To achieve this we construct a FRM model; as the data under analysis is an unsupervised one we felt only FRM can give us the hidden pattern of the situation. The main causes for the dropouts in primary schools are: 1. Poor economic condition of the parents. 2. No school in the neighbourhood with less fees. 3. Language problems 4. Uneducated parents who are unaware of the value of education. 5. No proper counselling given to the poor and uneducated parents by the teachers or social workers about the need of the basic primary education and the unknown harm they are doing to their children by denying them education. We suggest that education should be made free at least for the very poor in the schools in their locality. The motivation for the application of fuzzy set theory to the design of databases and information storage lies in the need to handle imprecise information. The database that can accommodate imprecise information can store and manipulate not only precise facts, but also subjective expert opinions, judgements and values that can be specified in linguistic terms. This type of information which is quite useful is for the first time applied by us to study the child labour problem, as this problem is one of the vital problems of the nation as one is not able to precisely say *For more refer: Post-graduate Research Project No. 43, Combined Research Papers No. 30, 59, 65 and 80, Conference Papers No. 128, 130, 197, 238, 269, 273, 292, 299, 304 and 315 12 why children are used to do work when they should be given basic education and should be free to enjoy life. The various reasons spoken for child labour are very vague like poverty, lack of motivation in parents, absence of school, hereditary job, uneducated parents, drop outs in schools and so on and so forth, but one is not able to precisely pinpoint the cause of child labour. This fuzzy database model and its associated fuzzy relation algebra obtained by us contain opinions of a group of experts about child labour. We use Computer coding (SQL statements) to program the tables using fuzzy relational equations. As our approach to study the child labour problem is using fuzzy database and since our results are derived not only using the statistical data but also equal weightage is given to the ‗feelings‘ as to why child labour is practiced we think that our conclusions would be better than the ones found out by analyzing only the statistical data. We see that school dropout rates and child labour go hand in hand. 13 9. School dropouts and its relation to migration* By the term dropout we mean children who discontinue their studies in the middle from the standards 1 to 8. The increase in school dropouts is very steady, many reasons can be attributed for it. The major reasons for school dropouts is the poverty that the family faces and no proper motivation about studies to children by the teachers. Further no necessary action is taken by the government to stop or even lessen the number of school dropouts. Now we view the school dropouts and its relation to migration. For we see majority of the school dropouts (also school goers who drop from school and go to work) in Mudianur village near Kallakurichi, Villupuram district migrate to Kerala for labour. They labour in summer and come back to their village in the rainy season because they do not have any work in the rainy season. These school dropouts who are in the age group from 10 to 15 are vulnerable to several bad habits which will directly affect their health. After migration they find it difficult to adjust with their society and family for they lose respect when they work in different states. The rate of school dropouts in rural India is only in the steady increase. The major reasons attributed for this are globalisation, industrialization, modernization and above all commercialisation of school education. The schools and school education in Tamil Nadu have become centres of investment of black money and a place of easy earning. Majority of individuals become rich overnight by establishing a school. These schools in urban areas are mainly for rich and people shun building schools in rural areas for these schools with their fee structure cannot survive in rural areas. Thus private schools in rural areas are rare and the government schools in rural areas function with least number of teachers. The government does not take steps to educate the rural poor, for rural poor are expected to work for the rural landowners. Thus the dropouts in rural areas are very high, that too among the poor. This is established using the fuzzy relational equations and neural networks. The major observation from our analysis reveals the dropout has a strong impact on the classroom atmosphere teacher‘s attitude and the school mission. * For more refer: Combined Research Papers No.40, 59 and 80, Conference Papers No. 115, 208, 238, 292, 299 and 333 14 10. Study of performance aspect of the school children* A rule-based control system depends largely on the availability and the performance of the rule base. When there are no experts available at hand to supply knowledge about any problem, rule based control system can be used. We are the first one to apply rule based control system to study the performance aspect of the school students. By performance aspects of school students we don‘t mean a student getting full or good percentage of marks or becoming eligible for a professional course. By performance aspects we mean the students life after the completion of his education and later his position in society, i.e. his overall personality like moral integrity, love for the nation etc. The teacher is used as the controller or control actions (i.e. how best a teacher should be, bad and good nature of the teacher is used) to mould a student to possess atleast more good qualities than the evil ones, i.e. whether the students presence is advantageous to society or disadvantageous to the society or is it indeterminable. To achieve this the input is taken as the student nature and teacher is taken as the control process and the outputs give the student’s position in society after he is settled in life. The output seems to be heavily dependent on the teacher who is used as the control process. We infer from this study that a devoted teacher with good moral values and understanding of the student‘s nature can certainly produce in future responsible citizens in contrast to teachers who have no devotion to work and no interest in the profession who works solely for money can at large produce citizens who could be dangerous to society. *For more refer: Post-graduate Research Projects No. 32 and 43, Combined Research Paper No. 65, Conference Papers No. 130, 269, 315 and 334. 15 11. School dropouts among female children* We studied the cause for the school dropouts among female children using Fuzzy Associative Memories (FAM). This study is carried out by taking a sample of 100 female children from 40 villages near Kallakurichi. They are in the age group from 5 to 13 at the time when they were stopped from their school education. Most of them claim that the major reasons for this are: poverty, no school facility in the nearby area, family circumstances, responsibilities at home, uneducated parents who do not know the value of education, no stable job for parents and the consequent migration for the sake of livelihood, a feeling after all why should a female be educated as the parents are basically uneducated and orthodox; and they do not know the value of education. Because of male ego, they think that women are inferior and they do not need education and so on. *For more refer: Post-graduate Research Project No. 19, Combined Research Paper No. 29 and 80, Conference Paper No. 111 and 292 16 12. The plight of rag picking children working in Chennai* The immense increase in the number of rag pickers in the Madras city is alarming. Even in a particular area of the city we find over 3000 rag pickers. (The number of rag pickers is dependent on the area: residential or otherwise). We have interviewed over 100 rag pickers from north Madras. It is unfortunate to note that rag pickers are not only small children who are runaways but several families do the job of rag picking. We are worried more about the risks, which they are exposed to while doing this job. Further these rag pickers suffer from several diseases because of their profession. They sleep in dingy pavements, on the roadsides, amidst sewers, with pigs, and dogs and live a life in the wretchedness of poverty deprived of any material comforts. This has forced us to analyze their problem. The difficulties faced by rag pickers in Madras city are multifold. They choose this profession for their livelihood due to acute poverty or run away from home or no education, or frustration or it is the only self employment etc. Once they are in the profession of rag picking they face still more problems by the police, by the public, by the middle men, by the other rag pickers and so on. Apart from these problems they face acute health hazards, no proper place of sleep, exposure to evils of society (like ganja addiction, alcohol, smoke, sex, etc.), which are forcefully imposed or thrust upon them due to their profession as rag pickers. All the problems associated with them be it social or economic or psychological no one can attribute a specific cause for it, we see the very problem involves lots of uncertainties and ambiguities so the data associated with this is only an unsupervised one; we are at the outset justified in using fuzzy technique in general and FCM in particular. We derive 10 attributes by interviewing over 100 rag pickers and these attributes are divided into overlapping blocks of size 4 and then we adopt the overlap block FCM to obtain the following conclusions. 1. The police exploit the rag pickers, for they find it easy to register petty cases of theft etc., falsely. 2. The health hazards faced by them is very acute. Most of them suffer from seasonal fever, malaria (due to mosquito bite) and other skin ailments due to very bad hygiene and sanitary conditions. 3. These children become easy victims of all bad habits and become real criminal due to misuse and bad company. Unless some sympathetic/understanding social workers help them with good guidance and protection they will die at an early age for they are unaware of any health problems they face due to their profession. They do not know the means to save or use properly the money they earn by rag picking. Unless public and government take a sympathetic stand and help them nothing much can be achieved. * For more refer: Conference Papers No. 282, 302, 306, 327, 330 and 336 17 13. Study of bonded labourers in rice-mills* The freedom of every individual is his fundamental right. The freedom from not being slave to another individual is still more important and we, in the 21st century after over 60 years of independence, see bonded labour not only of individuals but also shockingly as families. So, we have taken up the study of the problem of bonded labour using the tool of fuzzy relational equations. We choose to use fuzzy theory mainly to bring out the unscrupulous nature of the individuals who have enslaved several families, mainly their mental make up, socioeconomic and cultural identities and above all their ethical values. On the other hand, we also take into account the mental, physical and psychological suffering inhibited in the minds of the labourers. We have taken as the sample from over 1000 families of bonded labourers living and working as bonded labourers in rice mills in and around the Red Hills Area. It is a shocking information to see that roughly 1630 children work in rice mill industry of which 40% are in the age group 6-14 years and even basic primary education is denied to them. It is sympathetic to note that these families have become bonded labourers for cost as less as Rs. 5000. So the children have become slaves and possession of them in true sense. Thus bonded labourers breed child labourers in an exponential way. It is a pity that the Government only frees some bonded labourers but never gives them any form of alternate employment which leads them to die of starvation. * For more refer: Combined Research Paper No. 62, Conference Papers No. 272 and 283. 18 14. Study of brick-makers working as bonded labourers* The study of brick makers who work as bonded labourers in places around Chennai viz. Ponneri, Koyambedu, Chengelpet and Cuddalore has been carried. For this purpose we interviewed 105 bonded labourers. They have been bonded only for a six-month period (January to July) with an entire family working for Rs.7, 000 to Rs.10, 000. This money is not paid back to their owners, but instead they do an indentured labour for a period of six months. The interest rate for the above sum is collected by making extra bricks, i.e., for every 1000 bricks they have to make an extra of 50 bricks. The main reason for them to have become bonded/indentured labourers is agricultural failure, poverty, illiteracy, family debts and unemployment/under employment. They labour for over 10 to 12 hours, including the night duty from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. with Sundays and Mondays as holidays. They suffer from skin ailments, fever, cold and allergic diseases, which remain untreated. We use six experts’ opinions and use weighted multi-expert neural networks and arrive conclusions based on our study. Governmental neglect is the root-cause for bonded labour. If the government ensures that these labourers are provided with some kind of job security and ensures that the gap between the haves and the have-nots is reduced, certainly a better situation will be faced by these bonded labourers. * For more refer: Conference Papers No. 301 and 333 19 15.Tribals in Kodaikanal forests who are bonded labourers* The bonded labourers near Kodaikanal (Mulayur) are tribals, who were once the owners of the forest. Due to untold reasons these lands are being owned by Nadars and Chettiyars, under whom these tribals work as bonded labourers. We interviewed 80 families from this village. Of these only 50% of them had government given huts, which comprised of a single room. These bonded labourers worked over 8 hours a day. Their main duty was to work in the farms and forests owned by chettiyars and nadars, none of them have entered the school premises and the child labour is at its peak. Their work was at odd places, which prevented them from having lunch. They ate twice a day, which was not a square meal in the morning and in the night. Their pay as daily wage was partly less than Rs.50, which was insufficient to make both, ends meet. As the data is an unsupervised one we are justified in using fuzzy theory in studying their living conditions. The only solution for the problem would be to study how the landowners and sons of the soil, the tribals became bonded labourers and how the Chettiars and Nadars became the owners of the land of the tribals. * For more refer: Conference Papers No. 206, 305, 324 and 337 20 16. Control of atmospheric pollution by chemical industries* The main source of pollution of the environment is chemical plants. Carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, etc. are some of the factors of pollution from chemical industries. The maintenance of clean and healthy atmosphere makes it necessary to keep pollution under control. We use fuzzy control to minimize the waste gas pollution in environment by oil refineries, cement industries, dyeing industries, leather industries. The main observation is that the owners of these industries are least bothered about the environmental pollution but they are only interested in making maximum profit. In most cases, while planning the industries, no importance is given about the wastes produced by it. This is one of the reasons for the high percentage of pollution. * For more refer: Ph.D. Thesis No. 6 and 7, Combined Research Papers No. 27, 28, 31, 42, 51, 58 and 73, Conference Papers No. 129, 139, 150, 151, 166, 178, 184, 194, 201, 214, 233, 298, 322 and 338 21 17. Development of long-range planning for a chemical plant* The productivity of chemical plants depends greatly on their production schedules. But the production schedule is mainly dependent on production time. So the scheduling of production time is particularly important in chemical plants. Chemical plants can be divided into two categories from the viewpoints of their production schedule, they are 1, Multiproduct chemical plants and 2, Multipurpose chemical plants. Here we model and study only production in multi purpose chemical plants. In multipurpose chemical plants each operate for multiple products carried out with their own distinct equipments model sequences through the chemical plants. But the production time, period of production schedules of multipurpose chemical plants is more complicated, because the time period of production may vary, hence the time period of production scheduling is an uncertainty. As the model is a complicated one and uncertainty of both time and productivity prevails we are justified in adopting fuzzy set theory in general and fuzzy linear programming in particular in scheduling of the chemical plants. The acceptable production flexibility and acceptable production time are determined by fuzzy set theory based on equipment models. By this approach we maximize the flexibility of production and minimize the production time. Chemicals include raw materials, intermediates and products that may be purchased from and or sold to different markets. The main decision problem is the selection of process from among competing technologies and subsequent timing of process expansions. Also it is important to determine the optimal production levels for the installed process. The decision maker would like to maximize the net present value of the project over a long-range horizon consisting of a finite number of time periods. The net present value dependent on demands of chemicals, investments and operating cost of the processes, material costs, product prices, product demands and market demands. The demands of chemicals material cost etc., can vary from time to time. So we consider these as uncertainties and use fuzzy linear programming techniques and obtain a model and study the long range planning process for the chemical industries with a view to maximize the net present value of the project. By this method, we are able to overcome the usual problem viz., the inability to predict tight bounds. * For more refer: Ph.D. Thesis No. 6 and 7, Combined Papers No. 21, 24, 41 and 50, Conference Papers No. 82, 83, 98, 105, 106, 118, 120, 137, 147, 155, 169 and 170 22 18. Occupational hazards in textile industries* With an ever-increasing demand for a comfortable living in recent days the number of industries are on the increase. Several industries like cement industries, chemical industries, textile industries etc., serve mainly for comfortable living. The transition from manually built hut to multistoried buildings and like changes have not only increased the number of industries but also increased the occupational hazards faced. We only concentrate on the occupational hazards faced by workers at the textile industries; by conducting a sample survey of the health problems faced by the workers and their family members. A survey was done by collecting the data from 50 families mainly weavers in textile industry; to this collected data Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCM) were applied. Equal weightage was given to everyone by taking the combined FCMs. The survey consisted of not only the workers but also all the family members who lived with him. From the survey the following results were derived: 1. Most of the workers and their family members suffer from either Asthma or Allergy cold or TB or from frequent attacks of Cold, 2. Only a very few or negligible less people suffer from Lung cancer. Here if they had the habit of smoking we did not take their problem due to working in the factory, 3. Another strange ailment was nose block and throat infections, which were also a frequent problem, faced by them. 4. The external problems faced by them were skin ailments. The number who suffered from skin problems among weavers was less than the number of weavers who faced respiratory problems. Thus our sample study made it clear that the major occupational hazard faced by weavers was respiratory problems. We suggest that the employers give information before hand, to the workers about the occupational hazard so that they can take precautionary methods before they become a victim of the occupational hazard. In our society, the employers never give the employee any health advice of the hazards which they will be prone to because of doing the job. This is very special to India. The nation must respect the poor employee only then such health hazards can be prevented. * For more refer: Post-graduate Research Projects No. 35 and 47, Combined Research Paper No. 34, Conference Papers No. 166, 168, 181, 184, 205, 332 and 338 23 19. Health hazards associated with solid waste disposal* The solid wastes disposed from hospitals, chemical industries, plastic industries and leather industries can create chronic disease, accidents and infections if not disposed properly. But in India nobody bothers about the disposal of the solid wastes from these five primary sources. Further the first and foremost affected persons because of these improperly disposed wastes are children whose living is by rag-picking. Secondly the government employed scavengers whose job is to dispose these solid wastes from one destination to another. Recycling of these solid wastes too carry health risks if proper precautions are not taken. Workers working with wastes may experience toxic reactions. Disposal of health care waste requires special attention since it can create major health hazards like Hepatitis B and C, through wounds caused by discarded syringes as the children may sustain injuries and come in direct contact with these infectious items. Certain chemicals if released untreated can cause death. Some studies show these chemicals can cause cancer to residents exposed to hazardous waste. Many studies have been carried out about the influence of the hazardous waste on the health. We adopt multi-fuzzy neural network method to study these problems, as the most affected by these wastes are the poor, the poor children employed, as rag pickers in contrast to these persons who produce the hazardous wastes are industrialists and rich class people. Since it involves lots of inexpressible concepts and feelings, we feel it appropriate to use neural networks to analyze them. * For more refer: Combined Research Papers No. 34, 42 and 51, Conference Papers No. 152, 158, 181, 178, 184, 201, 204, 205, 214, 228, 293, 298, 314, 322 and 332 24 20. Study of the prevalence of tobacco related cancers among rural men* Howard K. Koh, Christine Kannler and Alan G. Geller have studied about tobacco related cancers in the United States of America. They claim that tobacco and tobacco smoke contains at least 4000 chemicals of which 55 are known carcinogens identified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. In our research study we have investigated the relation between use of tobacco and cancers of tongue, salivary gland, pharynx, larynx and lungs of 121 male patients from rural areas who belong to an economically poor status. Of these 121 male patients, 36 suffer from tongue cancer, 8 suffer from salivary gland cancer, 24 from pharynx cancer, 40 from lung cancer and 13 from larynx cancer. All the 121 of them had used tobacco both as cigar and spit tobacco (The term spit tobacco is used for both snuff and chewing of tobacco as it requires continual expectoration. We also call snuff and chewing tobacco as smokeless tobacco). Of the 121, 60 of them acknowledged that they had used tobacco and snuff. These men were agricultural coolies from the near-by villages of Tanjore; they were taking treatment from the Tanjore Medical College Hospital. The use of tobacco by them is social and psychological problem as there is no rhyme or reason for using tobacco products we are at the outset justified in using Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs) to analyse it. Now using FCM we analyse the types of cancer they suffer due to use of tobacco. Also we analyse the cause for using smokeless tobacco and cigars. The smokeless tobacco is mainly used as an addiction to keep themselves dazed and free from hunger (due to poverty they cannot afford even a square meal a day) and do the work mechanically without any problem. On the other hand the agricultural coolies who use cigars do it as a masculine identification and they are mostly persons with all bad habits. Further from our study we suggest that these persons must be tested for other types of cancer also. For these cases were reported to suffer only from one type of cancer but it may be most likely they may certainly suffer from more than one type of cancer. So it is suggested that they are scanned for all the tobacco related cancers though they only suffer from one of them. Further the tobacco related cancer can be completely eradicated by banning the use of tobacco. * For more refer: Combined Research Paper No. 84, Conference Paper No. 314 25 21. Socio-economic problems of cervical cancer patients* We analyse the socio economic problems related with the cervical cancer patients using Bi-directional Associative Memories Model (BAM model). We have interviewed over 260 cervical cancer patients using a linguistic questionnaire from the Tanjore Medical College Hospital. This linguistic questionnaire was transformed into BAM model. From the BAM model we see the major reason for the cervical cancer is due to lack of genital hygiene in both partners, social and economical conditions, several sex partners, early marriage and poverty. We, using the same attributes form the Fuzzy Relational Maps (FRM) and compare them with BAM and derive the following conclusions and results. Our sample study is mainly based on economically and socially backward women. Further most of them were coolies married at a very young age and we could conjecture that due to their profession and social set-up they must have had prolonged period of sexual activity. Unless women are economically and socially empowered the increase in the number of cervical cancer patients cannot be reduced. Further only economic empowerment can make them self-sufficient and insist on genital hygiene of their partner. It is further suggested that the government should take steps to offer women in the age group 30-65 free periodic screening tests for deduction of cervical cancer so that they do not become chronic patients, and enable them to take treatment at the appropriate time. * For more refer: Conference Papers No. 297 and 232 26 22. Analysis of the various pollution-related cancers* Over-crowded vehicles, industries like cement industries, chemical industries, oil refineries and cotton/textile industries form a basic pollutants of atmosphere in Tamil Nadu. Modernization has resulted in pollution of atmosphere due to heavy traffic. These pollutions lead to lung cancer, pleura, oral cavity, skin and bladder cancer. Tobacco, smoke-pollution includes all the types of cancer expect skin cancer. Now we using the data collected from Tanjore Government General Hospital find the gradations of pollutions associated with each type of cancer using Fuzzy Associative Memories (FAM) model for this is the model which gives the resultants which can be graded in comparison with other fuzzy models which give the ON or OFF state of an attribute. It is surprising to see that from our analysis we are made to include the pollution due to the spray of pesticides and insecticides that is also one of the reasons for all types of cancer. For some of these agricultural labourers who are not exposed to any form of pollution who are not Tobacco users are affected by these types of cancers. So the chemicals sprayed as pesticides or as manure must also be analyzed for the analysis of the blood samples of the agricultural labourers to find the chemicals present is to tested for some of them are carcinogenic. * For more refer: Combined Research Papers No. 42, 73 and 84, Conference Papers No. 214, 184, 233, 280, 295, 298, 314, 322, 332 and 338 27 23. Study of depression in terminally ill patients* In recent medical literature several authors have expressed the views that many terminally ill patients are depressed or suicidal. Depressed patients may be irrational. In most cases, doctors miss the presence of depression and so do not realize these patients need special management. Since the very study involves feelings that too very strong feeling and depression, we felt it essential to model their problem using Fuzzy Cognitive Map (FCM). We have chosen 15 important attributes to study, some of the important ones are mentioned here as follows: constant fear or anxiety of death of terminally ill, physical suffering, mercy killing as a solution, right to die of terminally ill, counseling, loss of dignity and independence, religion as an escape, unconcern of doctors or nurses, 6 to 58% face depression, role of relatives, large doses of medicine which hastens death etc. These are taken as conceptual nodes of FCM. The connection matrix acts as the dynamical system and the hidden pattern of our study was obtained and we derived the following conclusions: 1. Over 90% of terminally ill patients longed for solace from religion. Religious people could reduce the percentage of depression and expressed that such facility was not available it was highly costly. A mediocre person had no reach and only very few hospitals had such facilities. 2. Very few sympathetic doctors showing concern for terminally ill were able to relieve depression and reassure peace temporarily. 3. Their inability to be free and dependence on others and loss of dignity was the major cause of depression more than physical pain. 4. Some of the medicines given to these patients may cause depression that angle must be analysed by doctors and necessary steps must be taken by them for the side-effects. From the doctors view, several of them felt that to give the patients a peaceful death and save them from the agony of pain they often had to administer large doses of medicine which brought the patients closer to death. * For more refer: Conference Paper No.196 28 24. Personality-disease model in Homeopathy* Homoeopathic medicines are given to persons largely depending on their personality traits. For there may be several medicines for a particular symptom/ disease but it is based on the personality, the particular medicine is chosen. Personality does not imply only the physical outlook but it also includes the total nature of the person like jovial, social, temperamental, harsh, kind etc. In this dissertation we construct and study the Personality Medicine model of a patient for Homeopathic medicine using Fuzzy associative memories. The very term personality is an attribute and is a quality that cannot be very precisely assigned a value for it varies from person to person, time to time and circumstance to circumstance. For a person say a peon by profession, behaviour at home would be entirely different from the office. At home he is a bread-winner, at the office he is a peon. To study the personality medicine relationship we have used fuzzy theory in general and Fuzzy Associative memories (FAM) in particular to analyze the problem. We have specifically chosen this for it is the only tool which can give gradations between preferences. This research is a very beneficial one if for each symptom each of these medicines are graded depending on the personalities of patients. But it is pertinent to mention only a good expert doctor alone can treat because many of the medicines if given wrongly can create the disease itself in otherwise healthy patients, so it is very very important to see that before using a medicine if confirmation of the medcine and their personality is made. * For more refer: Post-graduate Research Project No.20, Conference Paper No. 112 29 25. Use of fuzzy evidence theory to determination of hidden patterns in diseases* We study the symptom-disease model in children. We use Fuzzy Cognitive Maps to obtain the hidden pattern existing between symptom and diseases. We apply this mathematical tool because it allows experts to represent factual and evaluative concepts in an interactive framework. Experts can dissent or consent to the local causal structure and perhaps the global equilibrations. It also allows us to encode the experts knowledge or ignorance, wisdom or prejudice. We thus study the various symptoms, and the corresponding diseases they indicate. This study is mainly taken because children below 5 years do not know how to properly express their health problems, they experience at the time of sickness. So, it is the ardent duty of the doctors to spend lot of their time to find the symptoms/ disease in them for in several cases the wrong medicine/ diagnosis may lead to death or kidney failure or liver problems. The study is free from any prejudice as all experts are given equal weightage. * For more refer: Post-graduate Research Project No.17, Combined Research Paper No. 14, Conference Paper No.100 and 136 30 26. Underlying reasons for female infanticide and foeticide: A socio-economic analysis* In our research we have analyzed and studied the cause of female infanticide in India. Since the cause cannot be pin-pointed out for a particular reason or for some reason we felt that the cause is mainly a vague one varying from people to people, society to society and also depending on the social and economic conditions. Since the data involved in this study can only be an unsupervised one we are at the outset justified in analyzing them using fuzzy theory in general and Bidirectional Associative Memories in particular. We study and apply the BAM model to the problem of female infanticide. The main conclusions derived from our study are: 1. The number of children seems to have no impact on the various sections as long as they are male children. 2. In poor society, female infanticide is both direct and indirect i.e. the poverty plays a major role and these female babies die of malnutrition, starvation and lack of proper medical care: though they are born as very healthly children. Principally people consider the girl child as a burden to them and hence decide against bringing up the girl child. 3. Women having inferiority complex is also one of the major reasons for female infanticide. The main suggestions are i. The attitude of men towards woman must drastically change. ii. Constitutional amendments should be made to protect and empower the girl child. iii. Women should be educated equally as men so as to bring down the feeling of inferiority complex prevalent among women. iv. If the death of the female child is proved due to unnatural reasons the parents and in laws must be given severe punishment. v. If the girl children are given some monetary benefit by the state then certainly for the sake of money they may not kill the girl child. * For more refer: Post-grduate Research Project No. 19, Combined Research Paper No.29, Conference Paper No. 111 31 27. Passenger transportation problem* We had studied the Passenger Transportation Problem using Fuzzy Mathematical Tools and Java Programming with specific reference to the Metropolitan Transportation Corporation of the Chennai city. We study the transportation problem of passengers traveling in a bus between two fixed points under varying constraints. We assume that the approximate number of passengers traveling between every origin-destination pair, along any route in all services is given. To determine the choice of the services, we develop a fuzzy reasoning algorithm where, the fuzzy phrases are represented by the membership function as fuzzy sets. A preference index value is chosen to determine the frequency of the services. We model the problem where the basic input data are treated as Triangular fuzzy numbers. Fuzzy optimization techniques are used to solve this problem. We have mainly taken this problem as only middle class and poor people use this mode of transportation. Our aim is to achieve the goal or more precisely the fuzzy goal viz. To maximize the comfort of the passengers in the Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC). We try to analyze the fuzziness inherent in the goals and in the constraints of the system under the following five heads: Maximizing the comfort. Minimizing the cost. Minimizing the travel time. Maximizing the revenue and Maximizing the frequency of the services. Here, we treat our main goal namely maximizing the comfort of the passengers as the core of the problem. We analyze this problem in two ways: First, by using Fuzzy Cognitive Maps and then by using Fuzzy optimization techniques. In the first case expert opinions are obtained by taking the main objective as the passengers comfort. Using Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs), results are derived from the opinion of the experts and the cumulative FCM is taken as the ultimate opinion. In the second part, we use Fuzzy linear programming to obtain the optimal value bearing in mind, the goal as to maximize the comfort of the passengers subject to certain constraints. Finally, we derive our results by giving weightage to both the methods. Specially written Java program for this fuzzy model makes the calculations simple and easy. We have taken the direct help of the M.T.C. of Tamil Nadu the public and several others which had made our research a success. * For more refer: Ph.D. Thesis No. 4, Post-graduate Research Project No.22, Combined Research Papers No. 10, 19, 20, Conference Papers No. 40, 43, 54, 57, 66, 75, 77, 80, 92, 110 32 28. Alternative for an urban mass transportation project * We study the potential benefit assessment and identification of the best alternative of an urban mass transportation project. The vehicle miles produced by each of the individual alternatives are given as constants. The basic input data are the capital costs and the user savings. These numbers are often impossible to be estimated with enough precision. Also there is uncertainty in the estimation of the future benefits. Fuzzy set theory is a convenient mathematical device with which we are able to solve problems that involve uncertainty, ambiguity and indetermination. We represent these input data as fuzzy numbers. Triangular Fuzzy Number (TFN) is an easy way of expressing the input data. On the basis of the economic criteria we identify the best alternative from the examined ones as that which yield the maximum difference between the total benefits and the costs; or alternatively, the system for which the marginal benefits and the marginal costs are equal. By varying the width of the triangular fuzzy numbers that represent the user savings and the capital costs, both individually and simultaneously, we obtain the best alternatives for every system of user savings and capital costs. * For more refer: Ph.D. Thesis No. 4, M.Sc.

Large-scale problems arising out of the rapid increase of technical education institutions* At present there are over 2280 technical education institutions functioning under the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). Every year several new engineering institutions have been approved to admit new students. Thus the increase in the number of engineering graduates is very disproportionate to the need. The rate of increase in engineering graduates is alarming. In India alone every single year roughly about 2,32,000 engineering graduates are produced apart from 1,88,000 diploma engineers. All these 4 lakhs engineers are just fresh out of college. Nobody among India’s education planners seem to have thought about the following: Who is going to employ them? What are their job opportunities? Are 4 lakh new jobs created every year? Certainly not! If they remain unemployed, what will be their contribution to society? How many of these frustrated persons will turn into educated criminals and anti-socials? How many of them would become drug and alcohol addicts? etc. Our policy makers of education have confused the concepts of technological development and technical institutions. If we need to be a technologically developed country, we can achieve that by producing a lesser quantity and higher quality of students who will contribute to the growth of the nation. Large number of engineering students is only a sheer waste of manpower. Thus the hazardous increase in engineering colleges and polytechnics is going to be only a problem to the nation. Developed countries like U.S. have manpower departments that estimate the number of job vacancies to be created over the years, the fields pertaining to the vacancies and the number of foreign labor that can be used to cope up etc. But our technical education system has not made any such studies. In fact in the year 1998, there were 571 Engineering colleges and 1134 Polytechnics but as of today there are 838 Engineering colleges and 1224 Polytechnics. In these three years there is no need to have such a sharp increase in the number of Engineering colleges because there is no corresponding increase in the number of job opportunities. Privatization of education and several other factors have made the running of engineering colleges into highly lucrative businesses. The failed technical educational system is not going to provide any kind of employment to these engineers. So based on all these data we have taken the opinion of vice-chancellors, directors and engineering students themselves who are employed and we use fuzzy model to study them. The important facts derived are: 1. Suggestions are made that new engineering colleges must not be given approval by AICTE. 2. There must be a larger restriction and restraint on the number of student sanction allowed to these Engineering colleges and Polytechnics. * For more refer: Combined Research Paper No. 61, Conference Papers No. 194, 199, 271, 284 and 320 34 3. Technical Educational Institutions with political backing and those, which are run with the primary intention of making money, must not be encouraged. According to the editorial dated 2nd August 2003 in the Economic and Political Weekly (EPW), in Tamil Nadu alone over 21000 Engineering seats will remain unfilled this academic year and over 30 colleges in the private sector are in danger of being forced to close down. The editorial further states that in April 2003, the Supreme Court had directed the state government to create additional seats in medical and engineering to accommodate those meritorious students in the open category affected by the 69% reservation policy. According to the EPW there is an all too evident absence of coherent and comprehensive policy direction. Taking these facts into account, we analyse the situation of Engineering Education in Tamil Nadu using Fuzzy Theory. We also further studied the present scenario of Technical/ engineering education in the context of Government i.e. state controlled regulatory body, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) versus the Managements, which runs the privately owned engineering institutions. The main attributes taken relative to the Government regulatory body i.e., AICTE are 1. No proper scrutiny of the infrastructure of the institution is assessed by the body of inspectors from AICTE. 2. Reports have often surfaced about how corruption rules the roost in this council and how bribes are taken in order to grant sanction for technical education institutions which are often run by politically or economically powerful. 3. No proper assessment about the teaching faculty is done by the experts who visit from AICTE (untrained, just engineering graduates are employed as teachers). 4. The cost spent by most students is disproportionate to their job opportunities (This concept is never discussed or given importance by the AICTE). 5. Non-existence of Manpower Corporations/ Departments and no steps to give any information regarding any type of job opportunities. 6. There is no equity in the distribution opportunities in a higher education by Government in general and Engineering education in particular. 7. The AICTE has blindly given sanction to new Engineering institutions has made both students and the owners of the institutions in highly erratic condition. 8. Several other points can also be taken under this head. 35 The main attributes related with the persons who start the Engineering colleges: i. Most of the persons who start the college are persons with least knowledge on Engineering education. ii. Their sole motive is profit. The institutional cost is minimal and personal cost is maximal leading to degeneration in quality maintenance. iii. They cheat the government/AICTE by showing false quality manpower to get sanction. iv. As they have spent substantial money as bribe to government/AICTE their main motive is to get back that cost from students or run the college with minimum or non- faculty that in turn has brought down the results drastically. v. When results are poor the colleges do not get even enough students to run the institution. For instance, there are over two dozen engineering colleges in which the admission hovers at the single digit level. vi. We could also observe that government-run colleges function better than the private owned colleges. This is sharp contrast to the lame argument which supports privatization on the basis that it creates better quality. 36 30. Internet addiction and its effect on student behaviour* Today‘s biggest hazard faced in the life of student community at large is the evil effects of the Internet. When we use the term behaviour we are using it only as attribute. Any sort of addictions in a student‘s life is a certain impediment to improvement in any form. When visiting cyber café as customer we made a survey and observed the following facts. First the cyber cafes promise ―100% privacy‖ anyone can be sure that intellectual pursuit or researching for study material by a student needs no privacy. Secondly the key words in all these cafes is the fact the customer is the king. So these two securities for the students have lead to do evil in a most conducive atmosphere. Most of them come to the cyber café or Internet parlour informing their parents that they had to send email or for chatting but in reality they are busy over surfing the pornographic sites. The proof is seen from the exponential increase of cyber cafes. The high rates of addictions of student’s community to porn sites has led to a exponential increase in the number of porn sites. Also this very increase in addiction among the students causes several more perverted minds and accelerates the decay in moral values. Police say putting conditions on these Internet cafes is like wild goose chase. Parents and teachers must accept their helplessness. Here we use fuzzy analysis and derive the following conclusions – The student‘s behaviour changes with poor performance in studies, looks as if under hypnotic spell or dream fantasy world, eye-ailment increase in eve-teasing, drug abuse, sadomasochism, crime against female children, including rape and degradation of the marital relationship. It also increases the condemnable activities like stealing and misusing money and above all violence. The study suggests that as Government cannot make any law to prevent it, this can however be stopped by teachers, religious groups, educators, public administrators, youth themselves and the public. For example, the public can stop such cafes from existing in their locality if abuses of the Internet are sensed. * For more refer: Conference Paper No. 193 37 31. Study of E-mail hacking by college students* One major problem in today‘s world of information technology that is faced by one and all is: How safe are the messages that are sent by E-mail? Is there enough privacy? For if a letter is sent by post one can be certain that it cannot be read by other person, other than the receiver. Even telephone conversations are most of the time subject to a good deal of privacy. Even tapping or listening (overhearing) of phone calls from an alternate location/ extension is only a very uncommon problem. However compared to these modes of communication even though E- mail guarantees a lot of privacy it is highly common practice to hack E- mail. Hacking is legally a cyber crime but it is also one of the crimes that does not leave any trace. The additional factor which makes hacking E- mails one of the easiest work is the fact that it requires very less technical knowledge and few details of the person whose E-mail account is being hacked. Hacking of another person‘s E-mail account can be carried out for a variety of purposes. We research and find out the factors that are the root cause for such cyber crimes. Some students do this merely for fun, some do it on inquisteness about their classmates (mainly opposite sex) and some do it to entangle their own classmates and there by hold some sort of power on them. Some students do it to retrieve question papers from their teacher‘s/ department‘s computer. But whatever be the reason it is an heinous crime should be tackled in a rationalistic and reasonable way! * For more refer: Conference Paper No. 193 38 32. Study of children as victims of cyber-crime* There has been an alarming increase in crimes over the internet. While it took 38 years for radio to reach 50 million people and television reached the same number in 13 years; the internet touched this point in just four years. By the end of 2002, there are expected to be 800 million internet subscribers in the world. According to predictions by the NASSOM, by 2003 there would be approximately 23 million internet users in India alone. However, it is unfortunate that on parallel lines there has been a rapid increase in cyber crimes. A vast majority of the targets are women and children. So we analyze the evils affected on children due to the unchecked rise in the number of cyber criminals. We also deal with the consequences of pornography, for studies have shown that over 60% of the websites have explicit sexual content. An estimated 1,00,000 pornographic websites generate revenue in the region of $1 billion annually. The worst affected by these sites are children who not only become addicted to such sites but are also easily vulnerable to internet stalkers and pedophiles. Secondly women with education also fall a easy trap. They are blackmailed and misused even by their own classmates and at times by their professors. Crimes in the virtual world affect day-to-day life in the real world and we find that often it is very difficult to recoup from the consequences of cyber-crime for it causes disruption of lives. It is also clear that part of these problems are caused because of various factors such as lack of parental supervision/ guidance and at times because children themselves succumb to peer pressure. Further, there is an urgent need for law to tackle the cyber- criminals for as such the existing penal code is outmoded in its application. * For more refer: Conference Paper No.229 39 33. Influence of media on crime* The term media represents both print and electronic media. The effect of media in committing crimes is analyzed in our research. For almost all the movies and in television serials we see the murder, abduction, extra- martial affairs etc. are done in a simple way without deep reason or rhyme. An innocent but desperate person on seeing these crimes may think he can commit the crime and go scot-free. For instance a MBA college boy from Andhra Pradesh surrendered in Chennai for murdering his classmate due to love failure. Two days later in the same style a college girl in Tiruchi was murdered by a boy who wanted to marry her. Thus the media effect is seen from Andhra Pradesh to Tiruchi. We analyze the effect of media's influence to indulgence in crime using FRMs. For FRMs are the best tools when the data can be partitioned and applying FRM to this problem we obtain the hidden pattern. Further, we also see that media in many a case has played a role of havoc—for when certain criminal acts are published the student's community instead of feeling ashamed to practice violence, blindly imitates it, which results in loss of life. The main reason which can be attributed to these crimes is that the education does not impose in the minds of the students values in life so they easily become victims who mainly act without reason. * For more refer: Conference Paper No.325 40 34. Socio-economic, physical and psychological problems of sex workers A study and analysis of the socio-economic, physical and psychological problems of sex-workers had become very essential because of the prevalent myth in our society that HIV/AIDS spreads mainly because of CSWs. This was very clearly revealed when we made an analysis of the migrant labourers affected by HIV/AIDS. Further, the men living with HIV/AIDS speak of the CSWs not with sympathy or consideration or aloofness rather with a kind of hatred. All the time they spoke not only ill of CSWs but bluntly blamed the CSWs for infecting them with HIV/AIDS. Now, a very natural question arises— how many of the CSWs were infected with HIV/AIDS because of the men (with HIV/AIDS) who visited them? The answer to this question is very sensitive, for when we interviewed migrant labourers we could get a clear feedback that most of the men infected with HIV/AIDS suffer from an odd psychological ailment, namely they wish to infect as many women as possible with HIV/AIDS, that is why they don't go for protected sex. The first person whom they experiment and willfully infect is their wife! This is very clear from our study because 97% of rural women were only infected by their husband. When these men are so vengeful and irrational with their own wives, what will be their behaviour with the CSWs? So we wanted to know the problems faced by CSWs. Most of the CSWs continue in that trade against their wishes for the sake of livelihood. They cannot refuse sex even to men with HIV/AIDS because they fear the middlemen to whom they are accountable or entangled. So we have ventured to study their problems. 41 35. Analysis of Periyar’s Views on Untouchability * For the first time, the social problem of untouchability, which is peculiar to India, was studied mathematically. We used Fuzzy Cognitive Maps and Neutrosophic Cognitive maps to analyse the views of the revolutionary Periyar who relentlessly worked for more than five decades to secure the rights of the oppressed people who were considered untouchables. Our study is of great interest to human rights activists, socio-scientist, historians, and above all, mathematics. This has been published as a book entitled ―Fuzzy and neutrosophic analysis of Periyar‘s view on untouchability‖. We have made such a study mainly because the social problem of untouchability in India is a problem pertaining to the mind set of people so to study or analyze the problem we have used mathematical models which work like the netweorking of the brain. It is unfortunate to note that even 60 years after independence, most of the riots or killings are due to caste clashes. The study of the views of Periyar who was fighting for social justice and equality may throw some good suggestions and solutions to humankind. * For more refer: Book No. 21 42 Research books published : 50 10 of the books are on Smarandache Algebra (Book Series) authored by me and published by American Research Press, United States of America.

Transsexuals and HIV/AIDS: A Sociological Study with specific reference to Tamil Nadu 2. Fuzzy Analysis of Female Infanticide in the Southern Districts of Tamil Nadu 46 Research Contributions Innovative work in the field of matrix theory and linear algebra which was notable for the introduction of several new classes of matrices like bimatrices, fuzzy interval matrices, super fuzzy matrices and special n-matrices (large n) which find their applications in coding and communication theory, Markov processes, and Leontief economic models. More recently made fundamental and wide-ranging contributions by applying these new classes of matrices to study real-world problems including the sociological analysis of HIV/AIDS. Best known for work done in the field of bialgebraic structures. The new notion of bivector spaces where a bigroup is used finds applications in coding theory through bicodes. Best-approximation notion used for the first time to find the closest correct codeword. Concept recently generalized to the notion of best bi- approximation and n-approximation for use in bicodes and n-codes. This new class would be highly beneficial to cryptologists because of its secure features which makes it almost impenetrable by hackers. Proved that the number of different representations of loops of order 2n (n >= 3) which are right alternative in which the square of each element is identity is equal to the different proper edge colouring of the graph K2n using exactly (2n – 1) colours. Introduced N-algebraic structures that will find applications in fields like finite automaton, colouring problems and coding theory. Used techniques from basic set theory to build the concept of set-linear algebra which is the most generalized form of linear algebra. This can be adopted by coding theorists. Has also generalized this to n-set vector spaces and n-set linear algebras which can be put to use in web-monitoring and testing because of its capacity to work with n set of states simultaneously. Worked in the field of ring theory in general and zero divisors in particular and defined a new notion called finite zeros and finite zero divisors. Defined the notion of S-zero divisors and S-anti-zero-divisors which are zero divisors satisfying more properties involving more elements of the ring. Emphasized that all zero divisors must be finite barring the matrix zero divisor and n-tuple zero divisors. If achieved naturally, this would settle the zero divisor conjecture for group rings in the following manner: If G is a torsion-free non-abelian group and K is a field of characteristic zero then KG cannot have non-trivial finite zero divisors. Carried out element-wise study of both associative and non-associative algebraic structures. Also obtained zero divisor graphs for groupoids, distributive lattices and loop rings. 47 Selected information about my books 1.

(PTO) 50 About the Book In this book ingenious methods are used in construction of groupoids using modulo integers. The class of semigroups in contained in the class of groupoids. Our study in this book is those special groupoids which contain subsets which are semigroups. All groupoids in general do not contain subsets in them which are semigroups. Many classes of groupoids using Zn (n < ) are defined. They find their application in automaton and semi automaton. 51 Book 2 SMARANDACHE SEMIGROUPS American Research Press, Rehoboth, NM, USA.

(PTO) 52 About the Book Semigroups are the generalization of groups. Smarandache semigroups study the condition when a semigroup contains a group. Group enjoys several properties and satsfy classical theorems like Lagrange‘s theorem, Cauchy‘s theorem, Cayley‘s Theorem and Sylow‘s theorem. In general a semigroup does not satisfy any of the theorems but by defining some more conditions and concepts modified theorems are true for special classes of semigroups which is the main feature of this book. This book also has suggested many research problems. 53 Book 3 SMARANDACHE SEMIRINGS, SEMIFIELDS AND SEMIVECTOR SPACES American Research Press, Rehoboth, NM, USA.

Smarandache semirings are semirings which contain subset(which is proper) that is a semifield. Semifields are defined which has led to the definition of semivector spaces. Research problems are introduced. These structures are real non negative part of the real line. Distributive lattices alone from finite semirings. Thus the interlinking of two algebraic structures are done. Research problems are introduced to make researchers take up interest in algebra. Here the notion S-zerodivisor, S-unit, S-idempotents and S-antizero divisors are defined which is an innovation as it will find lot of applications. 55 Book 4 SMARANDACHE LOOPS American Research Press, Rehoboth, NM, USA.

Similarly there is vast amount of research on the non-associative structures of semigroups i.e. groupoids and that of rings i.e. non-associative rings. However it is unfortunate that we do not have a parallel notions or study of non-associative near-rings. The only known concept is loop near-rings where the additive group structures of a near-ring is replaced by a loop. Though this study was started in 1978, further development and research is very little. Further, this definition is not in similar lines with rings. So in chapter eight we have defined non-associative near-rings and given methods of building non-associative near-rings and seminear- rings using loops and groupoids which we call as groupoid near-rings, near loop rings, groupoid seminear-rings and loop seminear-ring. For all these concepts a Smarandache analogue is defined and several Smarandache properties are introduced and studied. The ninth chapter deals with fuzzy concepts in near-rings and gives 5 new unconventional class of fuzzy near-rings; we also define their Smarandache analogues. The final chapter gives 145 suggested problems that will be of interest to researchers. It is worthwhile to mention that in the course of this book we have introduced over 260 Smarandache notions pertaining to near- ring theory. 61 Book 7 SMARANDACHE NON-ASSOCIATIVE RINGS American Research Press, Rehoboth, NM, USA. Pages: 148, Tables: 40, Problems: 150 Published: 2002. Price: US $29.95 ISBN: 1-931233-69-1 (Also available for download as an ebook) Los Alamos National Laboratory and Cornell University USA http://www.arxiv.org/pdf/math.GM/0306046 E-Library of Science: American Research Press http://gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/Vasantha-Book7.pdf (PTO) 62 About the Book Another generalized class of non-associative algebras are from groupoid rings. The class of loop rings are strictly contained in the class of groupoid rings. Several important study in the direction of Smarandache notions has been done in this book. Groupoid rings are a very new concept, till date only very few research papers exist in the field of Groupoid rings. The notion of Smarandache Lie algebras and Smarandache Jordan algebras are introduced. There are several informative and exhaustive books on Lie algebras and Jordan algebras. Further as the study of these two algebras heavily exploits the concepts of vector spaces and matrix theory we do not venture to approach Smarandache Lie algebras or Smarandache Jordan algebras in this direction. But in this book we approach Smarandache Lie algebras and Smarandache Jordan algebras as a study in par with associative rings for such a study has not yet been approached by any researcher in this way. This book is distinct and different from other non-associative ring theory books as the properties of associative rings are incorporated and studied even in Lie rings and Jordan rings, an approach which is not traditional. 63 Book 8 BIALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES AND SMARANDACHE BIALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES American Research Press, Rehoboth, NM, USA. Pages: 269, Published: 2003. Price: US $39.95 ISBN: 1-931233-71-3 (Also available for download as an ebook) Los Alamos National Laboratory and Cornell University USA http://www.arxiv.org/pdf/math.GM/0308038 E-Library of Science: American Research Press http://gallup.unm.edu/~smarandache/Vasantha-Book8.pdf “This well-written book contains a complete study of the following bialgebraic structures: bigroups, biloops, bigroupoids, bisemigroups, birings, bisemirings, bivector spaces. Their Smarandache correspondents are also introduced and studied. About 460 new notions involving these structures, a number of 178 research problems, and an index show the innovative talent of the author of this book.” Prof. Josef Sandor, review in Zentralblatt MATH, Germany (PTO) 64 About the Book Bistructures are a very nice tool as this answers a major problem faced by all algebraic structures – groups, semigroups, loops, groupoids etc. that is the union of two subgroups, or two subrings, or two subsemigroups etc. do not form any algebraic structure but all of them find a nice bialgebraic structure as bigroups, birings, bisemigroups etc. Except for this bialgebraic structure these would remain only as sets without any nice algebraic structure on them. Further when these bialgebraic structures are defined on them they enjoy not only the inherited qualities of the algebraic structure from which they are taken but also several distinct algebraic properties that are not present in these algebraic structures. One such is the reducibility or the irreducibility of a polynomial, or we can say in some cases a polynomial is such that it cannot be reducible or irreducible. Likewise, we see in case of groups an element can be a Cauchy element or a non-Cauchy element or neither … 65 Book 9 SMARANDACHE FUZZY ALGEBRA American Research Press, Rehoboth, NM, USA.

I cannot but congratulate you for your through scientific approach and an in-depth analysis of the moving life-narratives of the victims of HIV/AIDS, the captivating and lucid presentation of the interviews with an emphasis on the patients' emotions and feelings, sorrows and longings, and aspirations and frustrations. In short, your book has given voice to the voiceless, face to the faceless and vision to the visionless and has a set a trend how Mathematics and Sociology could interact together and offer valuable insights to make our society a humane one. Your book communicates powerfully the message to our society that HIV/AIDS is not an incurable disease but more so a livable disease and underlines the responsibilities of various groups towards the hapless ones of our social structure and systems. Rev.Dr. Mohan Doss, Rector, Divine Word Seminary, Pune. (PTO) 70 About the Book In this book we have interviewed 100 migrant labourers who are affected by HIV/AIDS. Their social, psychological and emotional problems are analysed using Fuzzy Cognitive Maps, a very sensitive mathematical model that can give the hidden pattern. 71 Book 12 FUZZY COGNITIVE MAPS AND NEUTROSOPHIC COGNITIVE MAPS Xiquan, Phoenix, AZ, USA.

Despite various attempts to reorient logic, there has remained an essential need for an alternative system that could infuse into itself a representation of the real world. Out of this need arose the system of Neutrosophy (the philosophy of neutralities, introduced by Smarandache), and its connected logic — Neutrosophic Logic, which is a further generalization of the theory of Fuzzy Logic. In this book we study the concepts of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs) and their Neutrosophic analogue, the Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps (NCMs). Fuzzy Cognitive Maps are fuzzy structures that strongly resemble neural networks, and they have powerful and far-reaching consequences as a mathematical tool for modeling complex systems. Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps are generalizations of FCMs, and their unique feature is the ability to handle indeterminacy in relations between two concepts thereby bringing greater sensitivity into the results. 73 Book 13 ANALYSIS OF SOCIAL ASPECTS OF MIGRANT LABOURERS LIVING WITH HIV/AIDS USING FUZZY THEORY AND NEUTROSOPHIC COGNITIVE MAPS : WITH SPECIFIC REREFENCE TO RURAL TAMILNADU IN INDIA (With Florentin Smarandache) Xiquan, Phoenix, USA.

Today, it is more an issue of society than a matter of medicine. . . In this bold attempt that searches for sociological solutions, gripping real-life stories of sixty migrant labourers living with HIV/AIDS in rural Tamil Nadu, India have been documented. Their socio-psychological aspects have been analyzed using the latest fuzzy mathematical tools like Fuzzy Cognitive Maps, Bidirectional Associative Memories and Fuzzy Relational Maps. Because of the need to represent the real-world, Neutrosophy (the philosophy of neutralities) and its connected structure, Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps have been employed for their unique ability to handle indeterminacy between concepts. Presented in a lucid manner, this book is an important contribution to HIV/AIDS literature. 75 Book 14 FUZZY RELATIONAL EQUATIONS AND NEUTROSOPHIC RELATIONAL EQUATIONS (With Florentin Smarandache) Hexis, Church Rock, USA.

FREs have been applied to problems in medicine, industry, transportation and all types of social problems where the data is an unsupervised one. Yet, FREs lack the capacity to tackle problems where an element of indeterminacy is involved. This book develops the new concept of Neutrosophic Relational Equations (NREs) that have the capacity to analyze problems with indeterminacy. Here, earlier models on FREs are analyzed and new NRE models, with practical applications are presented. 77 Book 15 BASIC NEUTROSOPHIC ALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES AND THEIR APPLICATION TO FUZZY AND NEUTROSOPHIC MODELS (With Florentin Smarandache) Hexis, Church Rock, USA.

For the past two or three decades, Fuzzy Theory has become the potent tool to study and analyze uncertainty involved in all problems. But, many real- world problems also abound with the concept of indeterminacy. In this book, the new powerful tool of neutrosophy that deals with indeterminacy is utilized. Innovative neutrosophic models are described. The theory of neutrosophic graphs is introduced and applied to fuzzy and neutrosophic models. 79 Book 16 WOMEN. WORK. WORTH.

We were shocked to understand from the interviews most of women have got the disease from their husbands. It is still a pity to know these women were not only infected by their husbands but abused by their in laws for being immoral. We use FRM and BAM models to study the problem. 81 Book 17 INTRODUCTION TO BIMATRICES (With Florentin Smarandache and K. Ilanthenral) Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Pages: 181, Published: 2005.

The presence of uncertainty has been analyzed using fuzzy logic. In this book, the amount of indeterminacy is being analyzed using neutrosophic logic. Most of these models use the concept of matrices. Matrices have certain limitations: when the models are time-dependent and any two experts' opinions are being studied simultaneously, one cannot compare both of them at each stage. The new concept of bimatrices would certainly cater to these needs. A bimatrix AB = A1 A2, where A1 and A2 are distinct matrices of arbitrary order. This book introduces the concept of bimatrices and studies several notions like bieigen values, bieigen vectors, characteristic bipolynomials, bitransformations, bioperators and bidiagonalization. Further, we introduce and explore the concepts like fuzzy bimatrices, neutrosophic bimatrices and fuzzy neutrosophic bimatrices which will find its application in fuzzy and neutrosophic logic. 83 Book 18 FUZZY AND NEUTROSOPHIC ANALYSIS OF WOMEN WITH HIV/AIDS (With Florentin Smarandache) Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

This new algebraic concept Linear Bialgebra is one that will find applications to several fields like bigraphs, algebraic coding / communication theory (bicodes, best approximations), Markov bichains, Markov bioprocess and Leontief Economic bimodels: these are also brought out in this book. Here, the linear bialgebraic structure is given subbistructures and super-structures called the Smarandache Neutrosophic Linear Bialgebra, which will easily yield itself to the above applications. 87 Book 20 APPLICATIONS OF BIMATRICES TO SOME FUZZY AND NEUTROSOPHIC MODELS (With Florentin Smarandache and K.Ilanthenral) Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

They are stereotyped and stigmatized, and are seen as people outside the ‗general population‘. In this book we use mathematical tools to attempt an understanding of public awareness and attitude towards people living with HIV/AIDS. Here, for the first time, a new model called the n-adaptive fuzzy model has been introduced. This model has the capacity to analyse the same problem in different ways thereby arriving at various solutions that mirror multiple perspectives. 97 Book 25 NEUTROSOPHIC ALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES AND NEUTROSOPHIC N-ALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES (With Florentin Smarandache) Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

The special feature of this book is that it tries to analyze when the general neutrosophic algebraic structures like loops, semigroups and groupoids satisfy some of the classical theorems for finite groups viz. Lagrange, Sylow and Cauchy. This is mainly carried out to know more about these neutrosophic algebraic structures and their neutrosophic N-algebraic structures. 99 Book 26 SMARANDACHE NEUTROSOPHIC ALGEBRAIC STRUCTURES Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

For instance, the algebraic structures Smarandache semigroup simultaneously involves both group and semigroup. Recently, Neutrosophic algebraic structures were introduced. This book ventures to define Smarandache Neutrosophic algebraic structures. Here, Smarandache neutrosophic structures of groups, semigroups, loops and groupoids and their N-ary structures are introduced and analyzed. There is a lot of scope for interested researchers to develop these concepts. 101 Book 27 NETUROSOPHIC RINGS (With Florentin Smarandache) Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Pages: 154, Published: 2006.

The new class of neutrosophic rings defined in this book form a generalization of group rings and semigroup rings. The study of the classes of neutrosophic group neutrosophic rings and S-neutrosophic semigroup neutrosophic rings which form a type of generalization of group rings will throw light on group rings and semigroup rings which are essential substructures of them. A salient feature of this book is the many suggested problems on the new classes of neutrosophic rings, solutions of which will certainly develop some of the still open problems in group rings. Further, neutrosophic matrix rings find applications in neutrosophic models like Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps (NCM), Neutrosophic Relational Maps (NRM), Neutrosophic Bidirectional Memories (NBM) and so on. 103 Book 28 FUZZY INTERVAL MATRICES, NETUROSOPHIC INTERVAL MATRICES, AND THEIR APPLICATIONS (With Florentin Smarandache) Hexis, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

These new notions find their applications in FCInM, FRInM, FBAInM, NCInM, NCRInM, and NRInM models, where n is greater than, or equal to 1. It is important to mention that these Fuzzy interval n-matrices and interval n-matrices will find their usage in Leontief economic models and Markov chains that has lots of industrial applications. 105 Book 29 VEDIC MATHEMATICS ‘VEDIC’ OR ‘MATHEMATICS’: A FUZZY AND NETUROSOPHIC ANALYSIS (With Florentin Smarandache) Automaton, Los Angeles, USA.

To gain a better understanding of its imposition, we interviewed students, teachers, parents, educationalists and activists. We analyze this problem using models like Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCM), Fuzzy Relational Maps (FRM) and the newly constructed Fuzzy Dynamical System (and its Neutrosophic analogues). The issue of imposition of Vedic Mathematics into the school curriculum involves religious politics, caste supremacy, apart from elementary arithmetic— so we use fuzzy and neutrosophic techniques to gain acute insight into how students have been affected because of this politically motivated syllabus revision. 107 Book 30 ELEMENTARY FUZZY MATRIX THEORY AND FUZZY MODELS FOR SOCIAL SCIENTISTS (With Florentin Smarandache and K.Ilanthenral) Automaton, Los Angeles, USA.

The approach is non-traditional in order to attract many students to use this methodology in their research. The traditional approach of mathematicians has conditioned students of sociology in such a manner that they are averse to using mathematical tools. Six simple types of fuzzy models that make use of fuzzy matrices are given. These models are distinct because they are time dependent and can even be used for statistical data. The Fuzzy Cognitive Maps models gives the hidden pattern. Fuzzy Relational Maps model not only gives the hidden pattern but also gives the inter-relations between two sets of disjoint attributes. The Bidirectional Associative Memories model analyzes data depending on the time-period, while the Fuzzy Associative Memories model can give the gradation of importance of each attribute. Finally, the Fuzzy Relational Equation model is capable of giving a solution closer to the predicted solution. All the models are illustrated through elaborate examples of particular social problems. 109 Book 31 SPECIAL FUZZY MATRICES FOR SOCIAL SCIENTISTS (With Florentin Smarandache and K.Ilanthenral) Info Learn Quest, Ann Arbor, USA.

These special classes of matrices are used in the construction of multi expert special fuzzy models using FCM, FRM and FRE and their Neutrosophic analogues (simultaneous or otherwise, according to ones need). Using the six basic models, we have constructed a multi expert mutli model called the super special hexagonal fuzzy and neutrosophic model. Given any special input vector, these vector, these models can give the resultant using special operations. When coupled with computer programming, these operations can give the solution within a reasonable time period. Such multi expert multi model systems are not only a boon to social scientists, but also to anyone who wants to use fuzzy or Neutrosophic models. 111 Book 32 SUPER FUZZY MATRICES AND SUPER FUZZY MODELS FOR SOCIAL SCIENTISTS (With Florentin Smarandache and K.Amal) Info Learn Quest, Ann Arbor, USA.

In sum, the number and the significance of the results appear to be suitable for the award of Ph.D. -– Prof. Hema Srinivasan, Dept. of Mathematics, University of Missouri, Colombia, MO 65211, USA. 157 7 Student Name : Ms. S. Ramathilagam Thesis Title : MATHEMATICAL APPROACH TO THE CEMENT INDUSTRY PROBLEMS USING FUZZY THEORY Keeping in mind the problems faced by the Cement Industry in the country and recalling the previous works done by various authors, S. Ramathilagam made good attempt to solve some of the problems faced by the Cement Industry by using new techniques and in fact these were tested. [...] Over all the candidate made substantial survey and collected enough data related to the work and analyzed the data by using new techniques to suggest the cement industry to mitigate its hardships in running the industry more effectively. As the work suggests various benefits like increase in production, reduction in power consumption, consistent quality, reduction in mill stoppages, etc. this can be considered as one of the most useful works either directly or indirectly to the cement industry. -- Prof. G. L. Reddy, Dept. of Maths. and Computer Science, Univ. of Hyderabad, AP, India. She has researched the earlier models and have incorporated them in her work using Fuzzy matrices. The thesis gives a nice introduction to Fuzzy Theory in the beginning which would be useful to an outsider. From the rest of the thesis it is clear that Ms. Ramathilagam has obtained an expert knowledge in Fuzzy logic and techniques from Fuzzy theory. Techniques from Fuzzy logic have already become the norm dealing with many difficult or imprecise problems of the industry. Ms. Ramathilagam's research appears to be a very good addition to our existing knowledge in that field. Much of the results in the thesis has been presented in professional conferences as well as published or submitted for publishing in journals. The amount of work is certainly quite substantial. -- Prof. Hema Srinivasan, Dept. of Maths., Univ. of Missouri, Colombia, USA. 158 6 Student Name : Mr. S. R. Kannan Thesis Title : MATHEMATICAL APPROACH TO THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY PROBLEMS USING FUZZY THEORY The thesis is well written. The candidate has taken up the problems which are very relevant to the present day situation. -- Prof. P.Dheena, Dept. of Maths, Annamalai Univ. TN, India. The thesis contains significant new results devoted to the development of new valuable practical mathematics algorithms using the novel methods of fuzzy theory and neural networks. The results have been published in several good publications, and the overall amount of work is significant by all international standards.

The is very well written, and I strongly recommend awarding the degree without making any changes to the text of the thesis. -- Prof. Andrei Kelarev, Dept. of Maths., Univ. of Tasmania, Tasmania, Australia. 159 5 Student Name : Ms. R. Sujatha Thesis Title : CONSTRUCTION OF CONCATENATION AND ERASURE TECHNIQUES FOR THE CLASS OF MRD CODES AND THEIR APPLICATIONS I have gone through the thesis with great interest. The thesis is well-written and the exposition is good. I recommend the thesis for the award of the Ph.D. degree. -- Prof. Loganathan, Dept. of Maths., RIASM, Univ. of Madras, India. The study of Rank Distance codes (RD codes) is a newer branch of algebraic coding. RD codes have been invented by E.M.Gabidulin. He has studied so called MRD codes, a subclass of RD codes which attain the Singleton bound. Another major contribution of RD codes has been given by N.Suresh Babu, a former student of IIT, Madras. The thesis of R. Sujatha is a major contribution to RD codes... The results may have some practical relevance in the future. In particular, the guessing technique for MRD codes provides a very nice example of the strength of RD codes... These codes may be useful in byte-organized memories. This sort of construction is very original. -- Prof. Karl-Heinz Zimmermann, Technical Univ. of Hamburg-Harburg, Dept. of Comp. Elec. Engineering, Hamburg, Germany. 160 4 Student Name : Ms. Indra Venkatbabu Thesis Title : MATHEMATICAL APPROACH TO THE PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM USING FUZZY THEORY Indra's thesis contributes decisively to the study of the passenger transportation problem using Fuzzy Theory... On the other hand, good analysis is made to present the transportation problem solely for the operator's benefit in such a way that perfect balance was obtained both from the operator's as well as from the passenger's point of view... The entire study of the transportation problem was presented lucidly and satisfactorily. -- Prof. G. Lakshma Reddy, Dept. of Comp. Sci and Math., Univ. of Hyderabad, Hyderabad, India. This is a very good thesis at a very high degree difficulty particularly because it combines mathematical modeling and analysis with empirical work, which can be found rather solemnly in a Ph.D. thesis. The work is undoubtedly of such a quality that it makes significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge and I recommend it by all means to accept this thesis for the award of the Ph.D. degree. The combination of computer programming, empirical work (working on a real problem as well as acquiring real data) and mathematical modeling also normally requires much more work than in either purely mathematical or purely empirical research work. I have also checked the programs in the world wide web and I am impressed by the work... -- Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c.H-J. Zimmermann, (Author: Fuzzy Sets and Systems), RWTH, Aachen, Germany. 161 3 Student Name : Mr. D. Meiyappan Thesis Title : STUDIES ON FUZZY SUBGROUPS The author and the student deserve to be congratulated for their detailed study of the concept and beautiful presentation of the results... the thesis makes an valuable contribution to the theory of fuzzy subgroups.-- Prof. Kirangi, Dept. of Math., Univ. of Mysore, Mysore, India. Fuzzy sets and groups is an interesting and important topic of current research in algebra. It is a topic that is perhaps at a relatively early age of development and this makes it especially suitable for a thesis. I highly commend Professor Vasantha for her ingenuity in guiding her students in this interesting and fruitful direction. In summary this is a very well written thesis which contains a number of interesting results on an important topic.-- Prof. Hema Srinivasan, Dept. of Math., Univ. of Missouri-Columbia, USA. 162 2 Student Name : Mr. N. Suresh Babu Thesis Title : STUDIES OF RANK DISTANCE CODES This thesis gives a detailed analysis of error correcting codes in rank metric which is a very efficient metric in the sense that it can be utilized for error correcting codes defined over any higher dimensional Galois field wherein usual Hamming metric is inappropriate. In conclusion, I would like to say that this thesis is an excellent piece of work in coding theory. -- Prof. M. Vijayalakshmi, Dept. of Math., RIASM, Univ. of Madras, India. This thesis makes a significant contribution to the theory of error correcting codes. Indeed the thesis contains several very important results: a) the non- existence theorem of perfect rank distance codes over GF(2N) which is certainly one of the triumphs of the theory...--Prof. Karl-Heinz Zimmermann, Technical Univ. of Hamburg-Harburg, Dept. of Comp. Elec. Engineering, Hamburg, Germany. 163 1 Student Name : Mr. Satya Veer Singh Thesis Title : ON A NEW CLASS OF LOOPS AND LOOP RINGS The result seems to be new and interesting...

Conferences, both national and international, have been the major forum for presenting our research results; primarily because of the spontaneous feedback and encouragement. Sometimes, we have created unparalleled benchmarks in presentations. For instance in the International Conference on Recent Advances in Mathematical Sciences held at the IIT Kharaghpur during 20-22 December 2000, 13 of the research scholars enrolled under my guidance presented their results. In the National Symposium on Mathematical Methods and its Applications (2004), held at the IIT Madras, 25 students of mine (from various universities and colleges) came together and each of them presented a research paper. The abstracts for each and every research paper is available on my website http://mat.iitm.ac.in/wbv/public_html/home.htm and http://www.vasantha.in 204 List of Papers Presented in Conferences: 351 Name of the Date and Title of the Name of the S.No. Conference Venue Research Paper Authors 1.

The Chief Minister Kalaignar has announced that this year's Kalpana Chawla award will be given to Dr.W.B.Vasantha Kandasamy. Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy is an extraordinary scientist and researcher in the field of mathematics. She has worked from 1987 for 17 years as a lecturer in the mathematics department of I.I.T. She has also guided several students to get the doctoral degree in Mathematics. Majority of the 14 mathematical books that she has authored have been published in America. She has written 2 books about AIDS awareness. It is worth mentioning that out of the 480 faculty members in IIT Madras, she is the only person who stressed that teachers must be recruited on the basis of social justice and carried on a struggle with the Institution. The Chief Minister Kalaignar has announced that Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy has been bestowed the Kalpana Chawla award in appreciation for her exemplary intellectual contribution to mathematics and her mental strength to daringly fight with determination for the establishment of social justice. The Kalpana Chawla award given to Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy carries a cash prize of Rs.5 lakhs and a medal. This award shall be presented on the coming Independence Day. Released by the Director, Department of Information and Public Relations, Chennai – 9. 249 Excerpts (and Translations) from News Items about Kalpana Chawla Award given to me ―Speaking to this newspaper on Wednesday, the Mathematics expert said that she wants to start a Mathematics Institute for the oppressed and downtrodden sections of society. ―Maths does not belong to only a particular section of the society, but also to other sections, particularly the oppressed and downtrodden,‖ she said. Dr.Vasantha has authored three books on AIDS, published by the Tamil Nadu AIDS Control Society. She has also helped numerous persons affected by AIDS. Dr.Vasantha has authored a book on Periyar, titled ―Fuzzy and Neutrosophic Analysis of Periyar‘s Views on Untouchability.‖ All her books are available on her website ―www.vasantha.net‖ for free download, which she says will help students read them free of cost, instead of buying them.‖ Deccan Chronicle, Chennai, Thursday, 10 August 2006 250 It is well known that in Chief Minister Kalaignar‘s rule, right from the day of assuming power, all the electoral promises are being fulfilled at the speed of rockets. One can release a separate press release about the various fulfilled promises including the renowned schemes that have been implemented: One kilo of rice for two rupees, announcement that people of all castes can become priests, cancellation of farmer‘s debts, two eggs per week in the nutritious noon-meal scheme, two acres of land for poor farmers and so on. More than that, he has placed ensured social-justice by making the people of the oppressed sections of society occupy key posts. Several Dalit and Backward Class IAS and IPS officers have been given important portfolios. The new Advocate General, Government Pleader belong to the backward sections of society. Likewise, even the member of the Public Service Commission is a Most Backward Caste. More than all this, Honourable Dr.Kalaignar recently announced that the Kalpana Chawla Award (of 5 lakh rupees cash-prize and a medal) was to be given to backward caste Assistant Professor Dr. Mrs. Vasantha Kandasamy who has been the victim of injustice in the Chennai IIT for long years—any amount of praise of the Chief Minister and his Government will be worthy for this deed. Professor Vasantha Kandasamy is a fighter who has written more than 150 research papers in International journals, and has been the Ph.D guide of numerous students, and written several books, and she has got acclaim the world over. Dravidar Kazhagam President Dr.K. Veeramani’s Press Release in the Viduthalai, 13 August 2006, Vol. 71, No.74 251 ―There are more than 480 faculty members in Madras I.I.T. The number of faculty members belonging to downtrodden section is miserably low. Dauntlessly and relentlessly but single handedly she has been agitating for the cause of social justice in the institutions of national importance like I.I.T. Marxist Periyarist Communist Party congratulates Prof.Vasantha Kandasamy on this memorable occasion.‖ Periyar Era, September 2006, Vol.12, No.12 252 ―I would not have been consoled if I had been given this award in recognition of my mathematical contributions. I would not have become so happy. In this country, nobody recognizes a person who is a ‗fighter‘. They will merely move away from them. But Kalaignar has pushed aside all that, and has given this award to me by breaking the convention. When I think of that I whole heartedly praise that honourable man. […] Her father W. Balasubramaniam served as the headmaster of the Thondaimandala Thulluva Vellala Higher Secondary School in north Madras. She has 4 brothers and 5 sisters, 2 of them are not alive now. The rest of them made inter-caste marriages. Her husband Dr.Kandasamy has obtained five M.A. degrees in Tamil, History, Political Science, Saiva Siddhanta and Defence Studies. He has also obtained an M.Ed, M.Phil and Ph.D. Further, he has even got a D.Litt degree. […] It seems Vasantha madam has not gone to any temple, nor have they followed rituals like ear-piercing and tonsuring. She says that I still have the hair I was born with. […] Though she has risen to this greatness, she says, ―Students and faculty from the backward classes who are talented do not get the rightful share in employment in educational institutions, so they are pushed back. I have been fighting for the past 18 years in the IIT demanding that they should get the 27% reservation for Backward classes. Devi, 23.08.2006, Vol.28, No.19 253 ―Sanskrit was her second language in college. When we asked her about the Kalpana Chawla Award, she happily says, ―I am glad that I have been accepted as a fighter. It makes me more mentally strong to know that I have been recognized for my courage in an unconventional manner.‖ Kungumam, 20.08.2006, Vol. 29, No.35 254 “Have any of your students who obtained Ph.D. under your guidance received a honour at the national level? In the year 1997, a Dalit student named Kannan had come from Virudhunagar for pursuing his Ph.D. in Mathematics. After a major struggle, he could get a seat in IIT. Three years later, that Dalit student Kannan was called as an invitee to a scientific conference that took place in New Delhi. That was a major conference: the Indian National Science Congress and it took place at the national capital. That year, 38 people submitted their research papers. The Dalit student Kannan‘s research paper was selected for the first prize for the Best Paper Award. The other 37 people who participated were Professors from reputed educational institutions—this is the most notable point! Majority of the students who obtained Ph.D. under my guidance are first generation learners. “Are all the books that you have written related to your mathematical field?” Majority of the books are mathematical. That too, they are books that make use of mathematics to benefit the other walks of life. Mathematics can be used to control satellites, it can also be used to tell to the world the feelings of the people affected by AIDS. “Please tell us about the books on AIDS that have been authored by you?” With the support of the Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society, I have authored two research books in English on AIDS. The book Love.Life.Lust.Loss dealt with the life-stories of the migrant workers who were affected by AIDS. In this book the emotions of 101 migrant labourers who are living with AIDS has been captured. Another book is about women who are affected by AIDS. It is titled Women. Work. Worth. Womb. Even in this book the feelings of these women has been recorded in a mathematical way. Feelings cannot be recorded in mere numbers. When they came to know that they had been affected by the disease… When they were taking treatment for the disease… When they were ostracized by the society… To know their feelings at such various points of time, this book will be helpful. Out of numerous questions, we asked only the necessary questions to the patients and we listed out their reactions to our questions: silence, anger, frustration—this will help the medical research into AIDS. This method of mathematics is called Fuzzy theory. 255 “You would have done a lot of fieldwork for these two books. What are the facets that you could uncover because of your research?” Majority of the migrant workers who are infected by AIDS are men. That too, a vast majority of these migrant workers are drivers and those involved in heavy, manual labour. Many men are over-confident about their masculinity. They had the faith that no matter what they did, no matter how many illicit affairs they had, nothing would harm them. When we interviewed these AIDS patients we could observe that they had such feelings. Likewise, majority of them don‘t have great concern about their families. They have the arrogance that they are the bread-winners of the family. They are irresponsible towards their families; they keep bad company and consequently develop several bad habits; poverty—these are the major reasons that lead them to acquire AIDS. Majority of those who were affected belong to the 31-34 age group. That is, they would have had illicit sexual relations in the age of 21-24. That is the reason why they are now disease-ridden. As far as women are concerned 90% of them have been infected with this disease by their husbands. “How to understand fuzzy theory easily? To what other research topics are you using Fuzzy theory?” One can say that fuzzy theory is a generalization of the probability theory that you learnt in ninth or tenth standards. If you toss a coin it can either be ‗head‘ or ‗tail‘ in probability. But in rare cases, the coin might roll and go on and stand without falling either way. That is fuzzy logic. My books related to mathematics, can be freely downloaded from the site www.vasantha.net Dinamani Kathir, 20.08.2006, Vol.73, No.240 256 Vasantha Kandasamy! An Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the IIT madras. She has written 26 research books, published 632 research papers, she has guided 15 students for the Ph.D. degree, and 51 students for post-graduate research projects. To such an extraordinary mathematician, there‘s another feather in her cap: she has been awarded the Kalpana Chawla Award by the Tamil Nadu Government. In what manner does Dr.Vasantha deserve it? Dr.Priyakumar is an Associate Professor in the Tharangampadi Bishop Manickam Luther College. He obtained his doctoral degree under the guidance of Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy. ―I was born in an ordinary agricultural family. IIT is a new world that shocks rural and Dalit students. The situation prevailing there will take these students to develop inferiority complex and will affect them psychologically. Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy provides self-confidence to such people. She has written more than 10 books on the modern concept of Fuzzy theory. She is a world-renowned mathematician, but she has not been given due recognition in India. When there were expectations that she will receive the Bhatnagar award, which is India‘s biggest scientific honour, it was given to an unqualified person at the last minute. It was a major shock. Though she has been affected by mental tension, she has been bravely working for the weaker sections of society. It is absolutely right that she has been given the Kalpana Chawla award,‖ says Priyakumar. ―I studied ‗Coding Theory‘ for my Ph.D. degree. There are very few teachers like Dr.Vasantha madam who teaches everything very patiently. She has a daring personality, but at the same time she has a mind that is as calm as the deep seas. Once, Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy carried out research for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). At first the help from ISRO was on a small scale, later they had the intention of giving a major grant, so they sent their experts to IIT. But IIT refused the support from ISRO questioning the connection between Mathematics and Space Research. Though she is completely qualified to become a Professor, they still retain her as an Assistant Professor. We have not given her the due recognition. She fights with an exemplary courage for all the attacks that are made upon her. Several more awards await her,‖ says Dr.Selvaraj who is a lecturer in the SSN Engineering College and Dr.Rajadurai, a lecturer in the Vellore Institute of Technology who spoke to us next are students of Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy. ―Vasantha Kandasamy works in full vigour to ensure that everybody gets all the rights, and that equality must prevail. Though she is a world-renowned mathematician, she is very humble. Her only wealth is her great intellect. Her daring and her tireless struggle are worthy of praise. If another person had been in her position, they would have gone to foreign universities to increase the weight of their purses. She has ignored offers abroad and continues to work here, because of her attachment to poor and rural students. The IIT administration should honour 257 her. She struggles continuously without being affected by anything. This award will further sharpen her struggle and enthuse her,‖ says Rajadurai. Kalki, 10.09.2006, Vol.65, No.6 258 ―The struggle for social justice waged in the IIT Madras by Dr.Vasantha Kandasamy are moving. Not only those who know her, but even those who do not know her, would have known about her struggle. Vasantha Kandasamy raised questions with plenty of evidence—even the last fool would have come to know how many Dalits or BC community people worked as Professors in the IIT Madras. This is the question she asked 15 years back when she joined IIT Madras as an Assistant Professor unable to bear it. It was not a question she asked, it was a fire she set ablaze. The Institute did not have any reply to her questions. Though she has been insulted and disregarded by the IIT administration, she continues to work for the oppressed sections of society. If she wants she can leave abroad next month to a rich, foreign country. She firmly says, ―But why should I run abroad leaving my country, and people like me, because of fear due to them, or for the sake of money? If I do like that in a manner which gives happiness to the enemies of the majority of people in this country, how will the struggle of Periyar and Ambedkar and others be strengthened? That is why I keep waging a struggle at my level.‖ Several leaders in Tamil Nadu strongly support her struggle for social justice and reservation in the IITs. In these circumstances, the Tamil Nadu government bestowed the Kalpana Chawla award to her in recognition of her tireless struggle for social justice, to appreciate her mathematical talent that has surprised the world, and to praise her for preparing backward class students to become experts in research. As far as Vasantha Kandasamy is concerned, it can be said that this award is not just a recognition for her work, but a medicine for her long-standing wounds.‖ Penne Nee, September 2006, Vol.5, No.8 259 Vasantha Kandasamy could not bear to see this injustice take place in front of her eyes. She resolved to fight for social justice. So, she had to suffer several sorrows. ―In 1990, when everybody got promotion, even I became an Assistant Professor. After that 16 years have passed, but I remain in the same post. In the interim period, I was given the post of Associate Professor. Because of a case that I filed against the IIT Madras, they don‘t address me as an Associate Professor even for namesake,‖ says Dr.Vasantha. She has been insulted during official meetings. At times people have barged into her office room and shown lewd gestures, or talked vulgarly and ran off. The grill-gates that are normally used for fear of theft have been put up in her room to protect her. Today, it remains as an inerasable symbol in her quest for social justice. But Vasantha adds with passion, ―No matter how many obstacles come, nothing can stop my journey to establish social justice.‖ In the midst of all this torture she has authored 632 research papers, 26 books. According to the American Mathematical Reviews which publishes compiled lists of research articles in Mathematics, Dr.Vasantha has the highest number of papers. What does she say about getting the Kalpana Chawla award? ―In general, no government will recognize a fighter. But Kalaignar‘s government has recognized me. To have given me the award is an unconventional act. I express my gratitude. I would not have become so happy even if I had received the award for mathematical research. I am proud that my struggle has been rewarded. I will fight even more daringly,‖ says Dr.Vasantha in a resolute voice. Though she was promoted to the post of Associate Professor, she is given only the salary of an Assistant Professor, stays not in a quarters for the faculty, but only in the D-type staff quarters.‖ Dinakaran, 13 August 2006, Tamil Nadu’s largest selling daily newspaper with a circulation of 10 million copies. 260 ―What connection can be there between a professor and an award for courage and daring enterprise?‖ so we met Vasantha madam. ―I am a very strict teacher, discipline is very important to me. But the amount of strictness I show when I deal with students, the same amount of enthusiasm I will show in fighting for their problems. I have fought and got admission for several meritorious students who keep yearning to join IIT. They have gone to several foreign countries: America, Germany, Japan, France and they are well-settled. Can a teacher ask for greater happiness?‖ says Dr.Vasantha who has undertaken another major struggle: teachers must be appointed in IITs on the basis of social justice. It is 17 years since Dr.Vasantha joined IIT Madras. Her struggle for rights in the IIT Madras is also 17 years old. ―Yes, when I joined IIT, all the cuckoos in the campus were going to be shot dead because the director found it a disturbance. At that time itself, I fought against it and prevented it. That was the day when all this started! After that the problems for social welfare started coming to me, I thought that it was my duty to fight,‖ says Dr.Vasantha. Aval Vikatan, 1 September 2006, Vol.8, No.24 261 ―There are six IITs in India. One of them is the IIT Madras. The Central Government sets apart a sum of Rs.1000 crores for these Institutions. The Chennai IIT is situated in the heart of the city in an area of 300 acres. It was the then Chief Minister Kamaraj who ensured that this IIT came to Chennai through his great efforts. With what lofty intentions he brought this Institute to Chennai, all those intentions have been smashed. This institute functions under the Ministry of Human Resources Development of the Central Government, but nobody can question it.‖ Two years after I joined IIT, in 1990, all the lecturers in the Indian Institute of Technology were promoted to the post of Assistant Professor by a government order. At that time, even I became an Assistant Professor. That is the first and last promotion that I have received in the IITs. Even in this promotion, none of the increments that I had earned earlier were joined to my salary. I submitted an interesting mathematical project to the Indian Space Research Organization about satellite communication and coding theory. I had asked for a grant of Rs.7.77 lakhs. After a lot of delay, the IIT allotted only 1 lakh from the said amount for me to continue my research. They did not give an extension, or remainder of the amount granted to me by ISRO. Next, I submitted a proposal to a team of space scientists about mathematically formulating a technique that will enable us to have a system of coding theory on par with NASA. But the then Director prevented me from discussing it before the committee. Not only was I subjected to this harassment, but several more. All IIT faculty members are given telephone connections to their residences and office by the IIT administration itself. But the telephone instruments placed in my residence and office were removed and taken away by the institute. Till today, I have not been given a phone. But wantonly they have published two fake numbers under my name in the Chennai City Telephone Directory and the IIT Phonebook. Likewise, the employees of IIT are allotted quarters on the basis of their seniority. But discrimination against me has taken place even in this. The reservation policy must be implemented. They have boycotted me and not given me any promotion for the past 18 years for the sole reason that I voiced my support to the demand that Backward and Dalit students and faculty must be admitted to the IIT. That boycott continues even today. But still, I am not afraid. I do not lose faith. I keep fighting continuously. This is not a struggle that takes place for a promotion, or for my individual benefit or for my salary hike. I don‘t need any of that. A particular caste alone experiences the privileges of IIT, as if they have taken it on a complete lease. They enjoy 100% reservation. This is my struggle for social justice against that. I am fighting as an individual woman ever since the day I joined the Institute. 262 I will not say that I have attained complete victory in my struggle. But I will say that I have achieved victory to some level. I have taken up the cause for justice in my hands. If we demand justice itself, we will only get into difficulties. I keep suffering. But I will struggle to the end. I will fight till the day of my retirement. My fighting spirit will never stop. But no matter how many hindrances I face, I can bear it all. They gave us many problems. I bore everything. Even now they continue to harass me. These difficulties will not do anything to me. The difficulties that they give me are my stepping stones. I will not fear anything,‖ as she says this we can understand her fighting spirit. Because of such troubles, sorrows and threats, I am unable to send my girl children to college, and I am making them study through correspondence. ―I have written more than 70 letters about the injustice that is meted out to me addressed right from then President Shankar Dayal Sharma and then Prime Minister P.V.Narasimha Rao to current President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. But no reply has come about leave alone the solution. Today, the demand for 27% reservation in Institutions of higher learning has become strong. The Central Government must reserve this 27% of seats to the Backward classes. This is the need of the hour and it is inevitable,‖ says this woman fighter who struggles for social justice. Devi, 30.08.2006, Vol.28, No.20 263
