This involves two indexes for the quarter and the year, which sometimes can make the resolution algorithm less efficient if the problem is large. In this paper we propose a method of indexing quarterly variables based on an isomorphic transformation of a two-index program into a one-index program, in order to minimize the cost of the algorithm of resolution. This method of continuous indexing of variables, applied to national accounts, shows that the algorithm with a single index is more efficient than the algorithm with two indexes when solving the optimization program of the quarterly disaggregation.</p> 2019-10-12T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## On Quasi-Hemi-Slant Riemannian Submersion 2019-10-19T12:34:04+00:00 S. Longwap F. Massamba N. E. Homti <p>We recall the notions of invariant, anti-invarian, semi-invariant, slant, semi-slant, quasi-slant and hemi-slant Riemannian submersions from almost Hermitian manifolds to a Riemannian manifolds. In this paper we contruct a Riemannian submersion which generalizes hemi-slant, semi-slant and semi-invariant Riemanian submersions from almost Hermitian manifold to a Riemannian manifold and study its geometry.</p> 2019-10-19T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Secure Electronic Voting Using a Hybrid Cryptosystem and Steganography 2019-10-19T12:34:04+00:00 Oladotun O. Okediran Adeyemi A. Sijuade Wajeed B. Wahab <p>Conventional voting techniques have been employed over the years in most elections. However, each of these techniques has attendant short comings. The existing conventional voting systems have been subjected to gross abuse and irregularities. Electronic voting (e-voting) which is emerging as an alternative to these conventional voting systems, though highly promising, is not also totally free of flaws; information security issues bordering on privacy, integrity and verifiability of the electronic ballots casted are still significant in most implementations of e-voting systems. In this paper, we developed a security scheme that was based on a hybrid Rivest-Sharma-Adleman (RSA) algorithm and Advance Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm with <em>Least Significant Bit</em> (LSB) replacement algorithm for securing ballot information in an e-voting system. An e-voting system with multiple voting channels which includes poll site voting, mobile voting and remote internet voting was developed in the contextual Nigerian scenario. The electronic ballots casted via the system during experimental usage were encrypted using the hybrid RSA-AES algorithm to circumvent the problems of privacy, integrity and verifiability associated with many e-voting systems. The encrypted ballots were then hidden using LSB replacement algorithm to improve their integrity. The image quality of the cover image used and stego image obtained from the security scheme developed was quantitatively assessed using Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR), Mean Square Error (MSE) and Correlation. Furthermore, a performance evaluation based on users' perception of the developed e-voting system showed that the system satisfied most of the generic security requirements for electronic voting.</p> 2019-10-19T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
