European eels (Anguilla Anguilla), an endangered species with high economic value, exhibit very unusual features in their multistage catadromous life cycle at different life stages. The reproduction of eel takes place in the Sargasso Sea. Leptocephalus larvae use ocean currents (mainly the Gulf Stream) to migrate to European coastal areas, and then metamorphose into glass eels probably as they reach the continental shelf. Glass eel then, enter estuaries to join the fresh waters network. Knowledge about glass eel biology and migration has mainly increased in the eighties, and it is now well established that the activity during the estuary migration depends mainly on tidal cycle, even if lunar and circadian rhythms and/or direct influence of light and tidal coefficient may interact. Different migratory tactics are suspected on the basis of recent laboratory experiments (Bolliet & Labonne, 2008; Bureau du Colombier et al., 2009), notably the existence of individuals swimming only with the current, others swimming with and against the current, and others presenting a weak degree of activity. The propensity to migrate and glass eels energy content would be linked and may result in different migratory behaviours possibly leading to estuarine settlement (Bureau du Colombier et al., 2007; 2009). Unfortunately, few are known about the glass eel swimming behaviours in estuaries, a crucial point to better understand their estuarine migration: such knowledge would help to characterize the migratory tactics and to better understand the link with energy status. The videotracking system [EthoVision Color-Pro 3.1 (Noldus Information Technology)] which allows to measure automatically the movements of individuals represents an interesting tool to progress in this questioning. Nowadays, video tracking to measure fish behaviours is relatively frequent, but is rather rare in the ecological studies. Moreover, tracking a transparent animal, under water current conditions is a real challenge, particularly at night. To detect the individuals, several eels are marked by a fluorescent VIE tag (Visible Implant Elastomer, Northwest Marine Technology Inc.). VIE do no affect growth, survival and behaviour of tagged glass eels. Initially developed to improve the identification of individual tags in mark-recapture studies of aquatic animals, VIE tags are used here for a new extreme application in ethometry: the study of behaviours of transparent animals in weaker luminosity and in the dark by automatic tracking technology. The individual identification is based on the fluorescent color (red, blue, yellow and green) emitted by the VIE tag injected in the muscle mass on the basis of dorsal fin. The detection of the four marks is excellent. It allows measuring the activity (notably path and speed) of each tagged individuals as a function of tidal and nycthemeral rhythms in the same chronotron (circular aquarium simulating the estuarine conditions) and spatial use at a wide time scale from second to week. Another advantage is the possibility of tracked animals to go out the analysed arena without error of identification when it appears again in the analysed zone. This multitracking method by fluorescent VIE tags could be applied to a large number of species (crustaceans, fish, holothurians, amphibians, …).

The development of high-order computational methods for solving partial differen- tial equations on unstructured grids has been underway for many years. Such meth- ods critically depend on the availability of high-quality curvilinear meshes, as one badly-shaped element can degrade the solution in the whole domain (J. Shewchuk, “What Is a Good Linear Finite Element? Interpolation, Conditioning, Anisotropy, and Quality Measures”, Preprint, 2002). The usual way of generating curved meshes is to first generate a straight sided mesh and to curve mesh entities that are classified on the boundaries of the domain. The latter operation introduces a “shape-distortion” that should be controlled if we suppose that the straight sided mesh is composed of well-shaped elements. Quality measures allow to quantify to which point an element is well-shaped. They also provide tools to improve the quality of meshes through optimization opera- tions. Many quality measures has been proposed for quadratic triangular finite element. Recently, X. Roca et al. (“Defining Quality Measures for High-Order Planar Triangles and Curved Mesh Generation”, Proceedings of the 20th Interna- tional Meshing Roundtable, 2011) proposed a technique that allows extending any Jacobian based quality measure for linear elements to high-order iso-parametric planar triangles of any interpolation degree. In this work we propose an efficient method to provide accurate bounds on the mag- nitude of the shape distortion of any triangular and quadrangular curved element. The shape distortion is measured with respect to an ideal element, which can e.g. be an equilateral triangle or the element from the original straight-sided mesh. The key feature of the method is that we can adaptively expand functions based on the Jacobian matrix and its determinant in terms of Be ́zier functions. Be ́zier functions have both properties of boundedness and positivity, which allow sharp computation of minimum or maximum of the interpolated functions. [less ▲]

This paper considers the problem of computing the real convex hull of a finite set of n-dimensional integer vectors. The starting point is a finite-automaton representation of the initial set of vectors. The proposed method consists in computing a sequence of automata representing approximations of the convex hull and using extrapolation techniques to compute the limit of this sequence. The convex hull can then be directly computed from this limit in the form of an automaton-based representation of the corresponding set of real vectors. The technique is quite general and has been implemented. [less ▲]

In this talk, I will first recall basic results on binomial coefficients of words, then review the connections and differences with Parikh matrices. As a generalization of abelian equivalence, two words u and v are k-binomially equivalent if every word of length at most k appears as a subword of u exactly as many times as it appears as a subword of v. So a k-binomial square is a word uv where u and v are k-binomially equivalent. We will discuss avoidance of squares and cubes in infinite words (this is a joint word with M. Rao). Finally, I will consider the question of deciding whether or not two finite words are k-binomially equivalent. This problem has recently been shown to be decidable in polynomial time by Freydenberger, Gawrychowski et al. [less ▲]

It is known that the Barlow-Proschan index of a system with i.i.d. component lifetimes coincides with the Shapley value, a concept introduced earlier in cooperative game theory. Due to a result by Owen, this index can be computed efficiently by integrating the first derivatives of the reliability function of the system along the main diagonal of the unit hypercube. The Samaniego signature of such a system is another important index that can be computed for instance by Boland's formula, which requires the knowledge of every value of the associated structure function. We show how the signature can be computed more efficiently from the diagonal section of the reliability function via derivatives. We then apply our method to the computation of signatures for systems partitioned into disjoint modules with known signatures. [less ▲]
