Given a linear numeration system U and a set X (include in N) such that repU(X) is recognized by a (deterministic) finite automaton. Is it decidable whether or not X is ultimately periodic, i.e., whether or not X is a finite union of arithmetic progressions? Honkala showed that this problem turns out to be decidable for the usual b-ary numeration system (b greater than 2) defined by U_n = bU_{n-1} for n greater than 1 and U_0 = 1. In this work, we give a decision procedure for this problem for a large class of linear numeration systems. [less ▲]

The flow properties of powders are mainly due to the interplay of cohesive forces and intergrain frictional forces. We have experimentally investigated a "smart granular system" for which the interparticle cohesion can be tuned by a magnetic field B. We show that the rheological features of such a system can be controlled. Indeed, the granular flow can be controlled or even stopped by the magnetic field. Depending on the orientation of B, different dynamical regimes can be obtained like a "dry liquid state" forming conical droplets as well as a "layered soft state". Scaling lows are given for the flow rate outside a funnel as a function of B and for the stopping threshold of the flow as a function of the funnel output diameter D. From this analysis, it appears that the flowing properties are related to the dimensionality of the magnetic aggregates. [less ▲]

Bainite formation from intercritical austenite is of great practical importance for the production of TRIP-assisted steels. Silicon and aluminium play important roles during this transformation by delaying carbide precipitation, thus favouring the carbon enrichment of untransformed austenite, which makes its stabilisation down to room temperature possible. Previous studies have shown a strong dependence of bainite formation kinetics on both chemical composition and transformation temperature. In the present work, the effect of silicon and aluminium contents on bainite formation kinetics is investigated experimentally using dilatometry combined with microscopical observations. The experimental results are analysed by comparison with thermodynamic parameters, such as the activation energy G* for nucleation of bainite and the carbon content CT0 corresponding to the T0-curve. It is shown that the faster transformation kinetics induced by the substitution of silicon by aluminium can be ascribed (i) to a higher driving force for nucleation, (ii) to a higher carbon content CT0 at the T0-curve and (iii) to the precipitation of carbide in austenite in steels with a low Al content.

Most Aphidinae species produce and use (E)-ß-farnesene (Eßf) as an alarm pheromone. This sesquiterpene is released by individuals under attack by a predator, and nearby aphids exhibit a variety of alarm behaviours. This PhD thesis aims to better understand how aphids manage their production and emission of alarm pheromone (Chapter IV). We also wanted, in a second step, to improve our knowledge on the roles that Eßf could play in the relationships that aphids have with their predators (Chapter V) and tending ants (Chapter VI), in order to better pinpoint the problem in this very tough context. The aphid predators have indeed a real advantage to be able to use the odorant cues emitted by their prey, to locate them and to select an adequate oviposition site. Ants establish with certain aphid species mutualistic relationships, which occurrence could be facilitated by the use of aphids’ odours. In Chapter IV, we have highlighted that aphid colonies non subjected to attack by predators release constantly small quantities of Eßf in their headspace, which means that this molecule could have additional roles than just acting as an alarm pheromone. In a second study, we demonstrated that the release of Eßf was not contagious, and therefore that a non stressed aphid receiving the alarm signal does not release additional Eßf. Since the production of alarm pheromone is likely to entail physiological cost, we tested and validated the hypothesis that aphids regulate their Eßf production according to their social environment. In Chapter V, we studied the ability of the hoverfly predator Episyrphus balteatus (Diptera, Syrphidae) to be used as biological control agent against aphids infesting tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum). After identifying the odours emitted by aphid infested plants, we have demonstrated that although this Diptera is able to perceive all the odours released by the system, it mainly uses Eßf to select its oviposition site. However, the E. balteatus larvae are not adapted to the architecture of tomato plants. We also showed that the Asian ladybeetle Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae) olfaction was adapted to the perception of Eßf and that this beetle is also attracted by this sesquiterpene. Finally, in Chapter VI, we characterized the benefits accruing to aphid populations that have established mutualistic relationships with Lasius niger (Hymenoptera, Formicidae), and have demonstrated the role of Eßf and honeydew, respectively in locating aphid colonies and in the persistence of the mutualism.

Since their discovery eleven years ago, short-period pulsating sdB stars have proved their potential for quantitative asteroseismological studies. We have recently updated our astero- seismic diagnostic tools in order to incorporate the effects of stellar rotation on pulsations, assuming various internal rotation laws. It is possible, with these new tools, to determine the internal rotation profile of two short-period pulsating sdB stars residing in close binary systems, namely Feige 48 and PG 1336 -018. They exhibit orbital periods of 9.024 h and 2.424 h respectively, as measured from spectroscopy. For the two stars, we show that spin-orbit synchronism is reached from the surface down to ˜ 0.22 R∗ and 0.55 RxE2x88x97 , respectively. The rotation of deeper layers cannot be inferred with the type of modes p-modes observed in short-period pulsating sdB stars. These results can potentially provide new elements to test tidal friction theories, particularly the angular momentum transport, in close binary systems. [less ▲]
