These models are compared with observational results by regulating the values of the parameters. Our investigations indicated that the model $Lambda sim (frac{dot{a}}{a})^{2}$ is generally attractive in nature while the other model $Lambda sim frac{ddot{a}}{a}$ coincides to repulsive situation and consequently match with the current scenario of the accelerating universe. We calculated the variation of G(t) which showed that it changes rapidly when the value of $omega$ is taken between the limit $-1.33 <omega< -0.79 $. It is viewed that due to the composite influence of time-variable $Lambda$ and G(t), the universe expanded with acceleration. Further, it is estimated that the range for variation of G(t) with proper tuning of parameters $alpha$ and $beta$ is given as $-(1.89pm 0.10)times 10^{-11}yr^{-1}<frac{dot{G}}{G}<0$ which match with Ia type supernova.Two dark energy models $Lambda sim (frac{dot{a}}{a})^{2}$ and $Lambda sim frac{ddot{a}}{a}$ are studied by taking into account the gravitational constant G is a time-dependent parameter in the framework of Chern-Simons modified gravity.

Precise modification of inputs, applying one common library in the two approaches, correcting spatial nodes, and employing more energy groups in the deterministic approach are performed. It is determined that the effect of the spatial nodes is much more important than the other parameters in the deterministic method. Finally, results of two approaches are found to be satisfactory as discrepancy is less than 11%.http://ijpr.iut.ac.ir/article_1730_c32b7f52243b353e47cd6d2039d44066.pdfhttps://www.psi.ir/physics_society_iran_1_homeIranian Journal of Physics Research1682-695721320211122Optical Nonlinearity and Optical Limiting Performance of Disperse Blue 1/Dioxane via Z-Scan TechniqueOptical Nonlinearity and Optical Limiting Performance of Disperse Blue 1/Dioxane via Z-Scan Technique137143174510.47176/ijpr.21.3.39741 FAB JAbbasPhysics Department, Atomic Energy Commission of Syria, Damascus, SyriaMAlshikh KhalilPhysics Department, Atomic Energy Commission of Syria, Damascus, SyriaJournal Article20191201The absorption performance and evolution of the organic dye disperse blue 1 (DB1) in dioxane at different concentrations was investigated.

IranJournal Article20201024The violation of Bell’s inequality in quantum mechanics implies that there exist nonlocality and entanglement. When the density matrix of a composite system cannot be written as a convex combination of the product of the density matrices of its subsystems, we say there exists entanglement. For pure states, the existence of entanglement always leads to the violation of Bell’s inequality. However, in the case of the mixed states, there may be entanglement, but Bell's inequality is not violated and in other words, the nonlocality is not manifested. In addition to Bell's inequality, quantum teleportation is also a manifestation of nonlocality. Quantum teleportation using entangled states is more successful than quantum teleportation with separable states. Therefore, the corresponding fidelity of teleported state with the initial state (in short, the fidelity) of the former is always greater than the fidelity of the latter. In this paper, for Werner's state, we will show that in a range of the related parameter, while the CHSH inequality is violated, the fidelity, which indicates the amount of success of quantum teleportation, is lower than the upper bound of the corresponding fidelity for states that can be simulated with a local hidden variable theory. Meanwhile, we will see that for Gisin's state with hidden nonlocality, filtering, which leads to the appearance of nonlocality and more specifically leads to the violation of the CHSH inequality, also increases the fidelity.The violation of Bell’s inequality in quantum mechanics implies that there exist nonlocality and entanglement.
