In models with flavor symmetries in the leptonic sector leptogenesis can take place in a very different way compared to the standard leptogenesis scenario. We study the generation of a B−L asymmetry in these kind of models in the flavor symmetric phase pointing out that successful leptogenesis requires (i) the right-handed neutrinos to lie in different irreducible representations of the flavor group; (ii) the flavons to be lighter at least that one of the right-handed neutrino representations. When these conditions are satisfied leptogenesis proceeds due to new contributions to the CP violating asymmetry and — depending on the specific model — in several stages. We demonstrate the validity of these arguments by studying in detail the generation of the B − L asymmetry in a scenario of a concrete A 4 flavor model realization. [less ▲]

L'article examine brièvement comment la théorie de la modernité réflexive de Giddens, appliquée au domaine de l'intime et de la construction du soi, conduit à sa construction politique de la "troisième voie". Le texte défend que, y compris pour les critiques "de gauche" de Giddens, son analyse de la modernité est utile, parce qu'elle décrit - en creux - les limites de la portée émancipatrice de la réflexivité.

Background: Several studies have suggested that the main features of preeclampsia (PE) are consequences of endothelial dysfunction related to excess circulating anti-angiogenic factors, most notably, soluble sVEGFR-1 (also known as sFlt-1) and soluble endoglin (sEng), as well as to decreased PlGF. Recently, soluble VEGF type 2 receptor (sVEGFR-2) has emerged as a crucial regulator of lymphangiogenesis. To date, however, there is a paucity of information on the changes of VEGFR-2 that occur during the clinical onset of PE. Therefore, the aim of our study was to characterize the plasma levels of VEGFR-2 in PE patients and to perform VEGFR-2 immunolocalization in placenta. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: By ELISA, we observed that the VEGFR-2 plasma levels were reduced during PE compared with normal gestational age matched pregnancies, whereas the VEGFR-1 and Eng plasma levels were increased. The dramatic drop in the VEGFR-1 levels shortly after delivery confirmed its placental origin. In contrast, the plasma levels of Eng and VEGFR-2 decreased only moderately during the early postpartum period. An RT-PCR analysis showed that the relative levels of VEGFR-1, sVEGFR-1 and Eng mRNA were increased in the placentas of women with severe PE. The relative levels of VEGFR-2 mRNA as well as expressing cells, were similar in both groups. We also made the novel finding that a recently described alternatively spliced VEGFR-2 mRNA variant was present at lower relative levels in the preeclamptic placentas. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Our results indicate that the plasma levels of anti-angiogenic factors, particularly VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2, behave in different ways after delivery. The rapid decrease in plasma VEGFR-1 levels appears to be a consequence of the delivery of the placenta. The persistent circulating levels of VEGFR-2 suggest a maternal endothelial origin of this peptide. The decreased VEGFR-2 plasma levels in preeclamptic women may serve as a marker of endothelial dysfunction. [less ▲]

Non-linear elements are present in practically all spacecraft structures. When such non-linear effects are important linear modal analysis can no longer be applied. The development of a non-linear analogue of linear modal analysis is therefore an important endeavor. The objective of this paper is to show that nonlinear normal modes (NNMs) represent a useful and practical tool in this context. A full-scale spacecraft structure is considered and is modeled using the finite element method. Its NNMs are computed using advanced numerical algorithms, and the resulting dynamics is then carefully analyzed. Nonlinear phenomena with no linear counterpart including nonlinear modal interactions are also highlighted. [less ▲]

Since the end of the eighties, the globalization and development of new information and communication technologies have played a great part in complicating exchanges between companies and their various stakeholders (staff, customers/users and business partners). New forms of organization of work result in more and more relationships between people of different nationalities and cultures. Thanks to virtuality, a lot of companies can develop connections with people from various cultural backgrounds which can be co-located or distributed (with partners situated abroad, including in different time zones). But to maximize this potential, organization must overcome different complexifications levels of virtual communication and multicultural. So, we suggest studying the impact of cultural diversity on the quality and efficiency of virtual communications. There are already many studies about the impact of diversity on non-virtual context but very little about the impact of diversity on virtual exchanges. The originality of this article is to focus on the influence of intercultural and virtuality. [less ▲]

As network link rates are being pushed beyond 40 Gbps, IP lookup in high-speed routers is moving to hardware. The TCAM (Ternary Content Addressable Memory)-based IP lookup engine and the SRAM (Static Random Access Memory)- based IP lookup pipeline are the two most common ways to achieve high throughput. However, route updates in both engines degrade lookup performance and may lead to packet drops. Moreover, there is a growing interest in virtual IP routers where more frequent updates happen. Finding solutions that achieve both fast lookup and low update overhead becomes critical. In this paper, we propose a hybrid IP lookup architecture to address this challenge. The architecture is based on an efficient trie partitioning scheme that divides the Forwarding Information Base (FIB) into two prefix sets: a large disjoint leaf prefix set mapped into an external TCAM-based lookup engine and a small overlapping prefix set mapped into an on-chip SRAM-based lookup pipeline. Critical optimizations are developed on both IP lookup engines to reduce the update overhead. We show how to extend the proposed hybrid architecture to support virtual routers. Our implementation shows a throughput of 250 million lookups per second (MLPS). The update overhead is significantly lower than that of previous work and the utilization ratio of most external TCAMs is up to 100%. [less ▲]
