Campaigns and Treatment on Alcohol Abuse in Kenya
(Kenyatta University, 2021)Alcoholism is a serious problem in Kenya today and many adults are addicted to alcohol. The harmful use of alcohol causes a large burden concerning diseases, social and economic problems to the society. Mass media campaigns ... 
Study of Projective Curvature Tensor, 𝑾𝒋𝒌𝒉𝒊(𝒙,𝒙̇) in BiRecurrent Finsler Space, 𝟐𝑹−𝑭𝒏
(Kenyatta University, 2021)The Weyl (W) projective curvature tensor, 𝑊𝑗𝑘ℎ𝑖(𝑥,𝑥̇) has properties that have a wide range of applications in various fields but are still not easy to understand in a fundamental way since 𝑊𝑗𝑘ℎ𝑖(𝑥,𝑥̇) is a ...

Heat and mass transfer past a semi  infinite vertical porous Plate in MHD flows in turbulent boundary layer
(2019)Turbulent flows in electrically conducting media (MHD) remains one of the last unresolved problems in engineering industry and classical physics, but has general importance for the evolution of astro and geophysical ... 
Quantile Autoregression and its application to Financial Risk Management and Portfolio Optimization
(20140901)Increasing globalization, complexity of capital markets and the expanding range of exotic financial instruments have made financial risk management difficult to evaluate. As a consequence, a rise in use of more sophisticated ... 
An analysis of international tourism demand for Kenya
(20140818)Tourism sector in Kenya plays an important role in the national economy and has been identified as one of the six priority sectors in vision 2030 meant to drive the economy to attain 10 percent economic growth. International ... 
Investigating Sedenion Extension Loops and Frames of General Hypercomplex Numbers
(20130321)A sequence of algebras over the field of real numbers can be constructed, each with twice the dimension of the previous one. The algebra constructed by doubling complex numbers is the 22  dimensional quaternions. Next ... 
Robust variance estimation for finite population sampling
(20120608)After a sample has been obtained the statistic of interest can be computed. The next step (and a ore formidable one) is the assessment of the accuracy (precision) of the resulting statistic. The most commonly used measure ...
