Abstract

The enormous effect of wrongly computed student results in student academic career and the university as a whole demands that the task be perform meticulously using automated system. Student result computation literatures show that most universities in Nigeria still engage manual processing despite the proliferation of vendor results computation systems. Slow adoption of technology and innovation can be traceable to some factors such as, high cost of acquisition/licenses, maintenance, support, new infrastructures involved and security treats. This paper therefore, adopt cloud computing model in its proposed student result computation system design, thereby eliminating the above factors mentioned. The proposed system enable universities use student result computation service just like using an email service without taken cognizance of its IT infrastructure cost and complexity.

Abstract

Paraconsistent logic admits that the contradiction can be true. Let p be the truth values and P be a proposition. In paraconsistent logic the truth values of contradiction is . This equation has no real roots but admits complex roots . This is the result which leads to develop a multivalued logic to complex truth values. The sum of truth values being isomorphic to the vector of the plane, it is natural to relate the function V to the metric of the vector space R2. We will adopt as valuations the norms of vectors. The main objective of this paper is to establish a theory of truth-value evaluation for paraconsistent logics with the goal of using in analyzing ideological, mythical, religious and mystic belief systems.
