We generalise the standard joy-of-giving bequest motive by including inter-vivos gifts. Within a life-cycle framework, we analyse the implications of the choice of different discount factors for the utility of gifts and bequests. For a linear utility of giving, we characterise the gift and bequest pattern of a liquidity constrained individual over the life-cycle. We find that discounting at the interest rate is very convenient as the linear utility parameter can be interpreted as a summary measure for the strength of the motive of giving, net of all gift and bequest timing issues over the life-cycle.

Recent studies have shown that the T 2 control chart with variable sampling intervals (VSI) and/or variable sample sizes (VSS) detects process shitis faster than the traditional T 2 chart. This article extends these studies for processes that are monitored with VSI and VSS using double warning lines ( T 2 - DWL ). It is assumed that the length of time the process remains in control has exponential distribution. The properties of T 2- DWL chart are obtained using Markov chains. The results show that the T 2 - DWL chart is quicker than VSI and/or VSS charts in detecting almost all shifts in the process mean. [less ▲]

Computer simulations of metal forming processes using the finite element method (FEM) are, today, well established. This form of simulation uses an increasing number of sophisticated geometrical and material models, relying on a certain number of input data, which are not always readily available. The aim of inverse problems, which will be considered here, is to determine one or more of the input data relating to these forming process simulations, thereby leading to a desired result. In this paper, we will focus on two categories of such inverse problems. The first category consists of parameter identification inverse problems. These involve evaluating the material parameters for material constitutive models that would lead to the most accurate results with respect to physical experiments, i.e. minimizing the difference between experimental results and FEM simulations. The second category consists of shape/process optimization inverse problems. These involve determining the initial geometry of the specimen and/or the shape of the forming tools, as well as some parameters of the process itself, in order to provide the desired final geometry after the forming process. These two categories of inverse problems can be formulated as optimization problems in a similar way, i.e. by using identical optimization algorithms. In this paper, we intend firstly to solve these two types of optimization problems by using different non-linear gradient based optimization methods and secondly to compare their efficiency and robustness in a variety of numerical applications.

This paper is the basis for a course dedicated to geomechanics for energy production. A number of different coupling are discussed, with respectively the fluid flow (saturated and unsaturated) and the thermal transfers in deformable porous media. Eventually some aspects on the numerical modelling with the finite element method are discussed. [less ▲]

The University of Liège Museum of Zoology holds some large and not well-known insect collections, which are still very well preserved, due to the work of famous entomologists and curators such as Fritz Carpentier and Noël Magis. Insects from tropical areas are very well presented in these collections and were collected all around the world. The expedition of Edouard van Beneden in Brazil (in company of two entomologists) provided numerous specimens, mainly Coleoptera. More than 8,500 insects were sent from Paraguay by the Estacion Entomologica ‘FABRE’ and are still preserved in the original mailing boxes. Due to investment of the University in cooperation projects with some African countries, numerous insects (mainly Lepidoptera and Coleoptera) were collected there between 1900 and 1990. The main source of exotic insect specimens is the “Léon Candèze’s collection of Lepidoptera from around the world”, which comprimes more than 9,500 specimens. A first inventory, which digitized all genera and families present in this collection, showed it contains at least five systematic types. However, the aforesaid collections need an in depth study from researchers interested in the genera and species they concern. Even though not every insect specimen is recorded in the handwritten registers or the collection database, the well- organised depositories allow finding them easy, and any request of study would be welcome.
