Nearexact nonrelativistic ionization energies for manyelectron atoms
(The Royal Society, 20220323)Electron–electron interactions and correlations form the basis of difficulties encountered in the theoretical solution of problems dealing with multielectron systems. Accurate treatment of the electron–electron problem ... 
Need for and use of contraception by women before and during COVID19 in four subSaharan African geographies: results from populationbased national or regional cohort surveys
(Elsevier, 2021)Background Although hindrances to the sexual and reproductive health of women are expected because of COVID19, the actual effect of the pandemic on contraceptive use and unintended pregnancy risk in women, particularly ... 
NEXTGENERATION CATALOGUES: HOW ARE THE ACADEMIC LIBRARIES IN KENYA FARING?
(SABINET, 2014)The library catalogue has changed over the years from a card catalogue to its electronic successor, the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC), to what is called the nextgeneration library catalogue, sometimes referred ... 
NonEconomic Factors Associated with Adoption of Sprinkler Irrigation among Farmers in Kariandusi Location of Nakuru County, Kenya
(International Journal of Agriculture Innovations and Research, 20160812)As the country embraces irrigation farming to mitigate the effects of unreliable rainfall, sprinkler irrigation is perhaps the most appropriate technology for agricultural areas with sloppy terrain. The ministries of ... 
THE NUMBER OF DISTINCT FUZZY SUBGROUPS OF THE GROUP r p q Z n × Z m × Z FOR DISTINCT PRIMES p, q, r AND m, n ∈ Z+
(2022)The equivalence relation ‘~’ defined by Murali and Makamba is used to find the number of the distinct fuzzy subgroups of the group r , p q Z n × Z m × Z where p, q, r are distinct primes with m and n as Received: ... 
A NUMERICAL STUDY OF TURBULENT NATURAL CONVECTION IN A RECTANGULAR ENCLOSURE USING A TWOEQUATION TURBULENCE MODEL
(Asian Journal of Mathematics and Computer Research, 2017)Turbulent natural convection has been studied both numerically and theoretically. This work numerically studies turbulent natural convection in a rectangular enclosure with varying aspect ratios of 0.5, 1 and 2. The vertical ... 
The Occurrence of Glucose 6 Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency amongst Blood Donors at the Regional Blood Transfusion CentreMombasa, Kenya
(Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya, 201809)Glucose6phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PDd) is an Xlinked hereditary genetic defect that is estimated to affect 400 million people worldwide. This deficiency is associated with hemolytic disorders that may manifest ... 
Occurrence of red blood cell abnormalities in donor blood donated at the regional blood transfusion centre, Mombasa, Kenya
(202301)During transfusion, components of blood including red blood cells, platelets and plasma are directly administered into the recipient to treat conditions such as anaemia and haemostatic deficiencies. In most cases, effective ... 
ON THE CYCLE INDICES OF FROBENIOUS GROUPS
(2010)There are several very useful formulas, which give the cycle indices of the binary operation of the sum, product, composition and power group of M and H in terms of cycle indices of M and H. One very useful binary operation ... 
Online Competency Based Education Framework using Moodle LMS: A Case of HEIs in Kenya
(International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology (IJEDICT), 2021,, 2021)The purpose of this study was to develop a Framework that can be used to implement an online Competencybased education (CBE) program using a Learning Management system such as Moodle. CBE refers to a system of instruction, ... 
Open access and open source
(Sokoine University of Agriculture, 2006)This paper discusses how the open access (OA) and open source technology can be utilized by the African agricultural academic libraries to improve the collaboration and sharing of information and knowledge among agricultural ... 
Operator Equations, Operator Inequalities and Power Bounded Operators in Hilbert Spaces
(International Journal of Applied Science and Mathematics, 201711)This is a study on some operator equations, operator inequalities and power bounded operators in Hilbert spaces. Looking at the operator equation TW = WS various properties on T, W and S such as; quasinormal, posinormal, ... 
Opportunities to improve postpartum care for mothers and infants: design of contextspecific packages of postpartum interventions in rural districts in four subSaharan African countries
(BioMed Central, 2015)Background: Postpartum maternal and infant mortality is high in subSaharan Africa and improving postpartum care as a strategy to enhance maternal and infant health has been neglected. We describe the design and selection ...
