À la Renaissance, le trésor ne disparaît pas au profit de la collection, telle qu’elle se (re)déploie à partir de la seconde moitié du XIVe siècle. En témoigne le trésor que les rois de France ont détenu au XVIe siècle. Sous le règne de François Ier, les pièces précieuses et coûteuses sont conservées dans le château de Blois, puis dans la chambre du trésor des bagues de Fontainebleau. Sous Charles IX, quand sévissent les guerres de religion, le trésor est mis à l’abri dans la forteresse de la Bastille. Il n’en n’est pas pour autant progressivement démembré : donnés ou envoyés à la fonte, de nombreux objets quittent alors le domaine royal. Quand Henri IV monte sur le trône de France, le trésor des rois Valois a pratiquement disparu. Pour le reconstituer, le premier Bourbon puise dans le trésor des rois de Navarre, qui devient ainsi le trésor des rois de France. Comme auparavant, tout en donnant à voir le faste de la cour et sa puissance, le trésor constitue donc une réserve de matières précieuses que l’on peut, au besoin, monnayer, offrir, fondre ou mettre en gage. Progressivement toutefois, il convient de démontrer aussi son savoir culturel. Dès lors, d’autres objets forcent l’admiration. Il s’agit de petites antiquités, de naturalia, d’objets exotiques, mais aussi de tableaux et de sculptures, c’est-à-dire des pièces dont la valeur est désormais plutôt déterminée par l’esthétique ou par l’origine lointaine et mystérieuse que par la préciosité du matériau utilisé pour sa confection.

Different chemical reagents (phosphoric acid, boric acid, ammonium citrate, sodium dihydrogen phosphate, potassium dihydrogen phosphate, disodium hydrogen phosphate and trisodium phosphate) were employed to develop activated carbon cloths (ACC) by chemical activation of a lyocell precursor, in an attempt to explore their effect on main physico-chemical characteristics and electrical behaviour of the resulting ACC. The activating agent markedly influenced yield, elemental composition, and textural properties of the ACC. The ACC obtained with phosphoric and boric acids were essentially microporous, whereas those developed with the other reagents presented mesoporosity development. Phosphoric acid-derived samples showed the highest specific surface area (976 m2/g). The results also highlight the relevance of correcting the external surface adsorption in order to obtain reliable estimates of micropore volume. All the ACC were electrically conductive, their resistivity being also strongly dependent on the nature of the activating agent. The electrical resistivity of the ACC obtained with all the phosphorous compounds was successfully correlated with their C/H ratio and micropore volume [less ▲]

The known Gly56Ala mutation in the serotonin transporter SERT (or 5-HTT), encoded by the SLC6A4 gene, causes increased serotonin reuptake and has been associated with autism and rigid-compulsive behavior. We report a patient with macrocephaly from birth, followed by hypotonia, developmental delay, ataxia and a diagnosis of atypical autism (PDD-NOS) in retrospect at the age of 4(1/2)years. Low levels of the serotonin end-metabolite 5-hydroxyindolacetic acid (5HIAA) in CSF were detected, and SLC6A4 gene analysis revealed the heterozygous Gly56Ala alteration and the homozygous 5-HTTLPR L/L promoter variant. These changes are reported to be responsible for elevated SERT activity and expression, suggesting that these alterations were responsible in our patient for low serotonin turnover in the central nervous system (CNS). Daily treatment with 5-hydroxytryptophan (and carbidopa) led to clinical improvement and normalization of 5HIAA, implying that brain serotonin turnover normalized. We speculate that the mutated 56Ala SERT transporter with elevated expression and basal activity for serotonin re-uptake is accompanied with serotonin accumulation within pre-synaptic axons and their vesicles in the CNS, resulting in a steady-state of lowered serotonin turnover and degradation by monoamine-oxidase (MAO) enzymes in pre-synaptic or neighboring cells.

The aim of this master thesis is to study the interactions between western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla Savage & Wyman) and timber exploitation in a forest of Central Gabon. The research work has been organized around tree main axis: (i) The determination of the impact of timber exploitation on gorilla density. Gorillas’ densities have been estimated in unlogged forest and in logged forest by pedestrian inventories of nesting sites. They are respectively equal to 3.7 and 1.7 weaned gorillas per km². Nevertheless these values are based upon small size samplings and it is not possible to assess if the difference between them is significant. (ii) The characterization of nesting habitat. We brought to light gorillas’ preference for relatively open sites for nesting. Particularly swamps and open terra firme forest are appreciated by gorillas for the construction of the nests. The vegetation type in which the nesting site is located has an influence on the structure and the composition of the nest. Plants of the Marantaceae and Zingiberaceae families are the most frequently used for nest construction. Moreover, we noticed the use of the old road logging network for nesting and feeding. (iii)The determination of the effect of endozoochory on seeds germination. The effect of endozoochory depends upon the botanical species of the seed. Too few results have been obtained in order to allow a reliable comparison of germination rates between ingested seeds and seeds extracted from fruits. However, the germination rate of the species Santiria trimera (Oliv.) Aubrév. (Burseraceae) seems to be enhanced by endozoochory, in particular by the removal of the pulp surrounding the seeds. This study demonstrates that western lowland gorilla is a species that adapts relatively well to timber exploitation. Besides thanks to its highly frugivorous diet and its nesting behavior, the gorilla is an effective seeds disperser. The role of the gorilla in forest regeneration seems to be inconsiderable. Complementary studies, particularly a long term study, would be necessary in order to examine thoroughly into the conclusions brought by this work. [less ▲]

La littérature concernant la consommation énergétique du broyage dans les industries minières montre que cette problématique a été, et est encore, étudiée par de nombreux auteurs. Différents modèles de broyage sont donc disponibles pour ces industries, en particulier pour le broyage des minerais. Les principaux modèles et certaines de leurs évolutions sont repris dans la présente revue. Le broyage de la biomasse quant à lui a été bien moins étudié. Quelques études ont néanmoins porté sur la mesure des consommations énergétiques engendrées par le broyage de biomasses particulières, dans des systèmes particuliers. Rares sont celles qui prennent en compte suffisamment de paramètres relatifs à la matière entrante et sortante (granulométrie, humidité, origine, etc.) ou les caractéristiques du système de broyage. Pratiquement, aucun modèle de broyage de la biomasse n’a donc été proposé. Concernant le broyage des produits densifiés, aucune donnée ne semble disponible. À la lueur des théories de broyage de l’industrie minière, cette étude propose donc les paramètres à prendre en compte pour une éventuelle modélisation du broyage de la biomasse et des produits densifiés.

In the frame of the present study, the influence of liquid viscosity on liquid holdup distribution in a packed column equipped with the modular catalytic packing Katapak-SP 11 is measured. Water and an aqueous solution of glycerine, the viscosity of which equals 10 cP, are used as feed liquids. The estimation of liquid holdup is of great interest due to its strong influence on pressure drop, on solid wetting and on heat and mass transfer coefficients. The experimental technique used is high energy X-ray tomography, which is a unique technique to visualize the local liquid distribution inside the complex structure of packings and to quantify the liquid holdup at different scales.

We study the maximum weighted independent-set problem on interval graphs with uncertainty on the vertex weights. We use the absolute robustness criterion and the min-max regret criterion to evaluate solutions. For a discrete scenario set, we nd that the problem is NP-hard for each of the robustness criteria; we also provide pseudo-polynomial time algorithms when there is a constant number of scenarios and show that the problem is strongly NP-hard when the set of scenarios is unbounded. When the scenario set is a Cartesian product, we prove that the problem is equivalent to a maximum weighted independent-set problem on the same interval graph but without uncertainty for the rst objective function and that the scenario set can be reduced for the second objective function.

Classic financial agency theory recommends compensation through stock options rather than shares to induce risk neutrality in otherwise risk averse agents. In an experiment, we find that subjects acting as executives do also take risks that are excessive from the perspective of shareholders if compensated through options. Compensation through restricted company stock reduces the uptake of excessive risks. Even under stock-ownership, however, experimental executives continue to take excessive risks—a result that cannot be accounted for by classic incentive theory. We develop a basic model in which such risk-taking behavior is explained based on a richer array of risk attitudes derived from Prospect Theory. We use the model to derive hypotheses on what may be driving excessive risk taking in the experiment. Testing those hypotheses, we find that most of them are indeed borne out by the data. We thus conclude that a prospect-theory-based model is more apt at explaining risk attitudes under different compensation regimes than traditional principal-agent models grounded in expected utility theory.
