The observation of Jupiter's x-ray auroral emission during the Cassini Jupiter flyby has brought information of prime interest. The High Resolution Camera onboard the Chandra satellite has a pixel size of ~.13 arcsec, which makes it possible to discriminate emission features inside the Jovian polar regions. A ten-hour (one full Jovian rotation) light curve of the northern polar cap region (i.e. a region enclosed by System-3 longitude 160-180° and latitude 60-70°) clearly shows a forty-minute oscillation. This oscillation is shown to be independent of the viewing geometry. Such an oscillation is more speculative for the southern polar cap for which the S/N is much lower than in the North. However, if statistically significant, the fluctuation observed in the southern cap may be in close anticorrelation with the northern cap light curve. This would suggest a bouncing motion of the impinging particles, presumably sulfur and oxygen ions, between the polar cap mirror points. Comparison with HST-STIS far ultraviolet (FUV) observations taken during this Jovian rotation allows us to correlate the x-ray emission with a persistent FUV feature mapping to ~30 RJ in the dayside magnetosphere. This feature shows significant local time variations. However, the sampling of the STIS observations does not permit us to highlight a forty-minute oscillation in the corresponding ultraviolet light curve. Previous STIS spectra favor a high FUV color ratio for the polar cap emission, which is consistent with precipitation of high energy sulfur and oxygen ions. [less ▲]

This chapter gives an overview of the legal regime pertaining to choice of court clauses. The focus is on the regime applicable within the EU, in the light in particular of Article 23 of the Brussels I Regulation (although reference is also made to the Belgian Code of Private International Law and the Hague Choice of Court Convention). The contribution aims to provide guidelines for contract drafters. The chapter starts with a general description of the role of choice of court clauses before analysing in depth the validity requirements for such clauses. The contribution provides numerous examples of choice of court clauses, which are commented. [less ▲]

Mitochondrial Complex I is the largest multimeric enzyme of the respiratory chain. The lack of a model system with facile genetics has limited the molecular dissection of Complex I assembly. Using Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as an experimental system to screen for Complex I defects, we isolated, via forward genetics, amc1 to 7 nuclear mutants (for assembly of mitochondrial complex I) displaying reduced or no Complex I activity. BN-PAGE and immunoblot analyses revealed that amc3 and amc4 accumulate reduced levels of the Complex I holoenzyme (950 kDa) while all other amc mutants fail to accumulate a mature complex. In amc1, 2, 5, 6, 7, the detection of a 700 kDa subcomplex retaining NADH dehydrogenase activity indicates an arrest in the assembly process. Genetic analyses established that amc5 and amc7 are alleles of the same locus while amc1 to 4 and amc6 define distinct complementation groups. The locus defined by the amc5 and amc7 alleles corresponds to the NUOB10 gene, encoding PDSW, a subunit of the membrane arm of Complex I. This is the first report of a forward genetic screen yielding the isolation of Complex I mutants. This work illustrates the potential of using Chlamydomonas as a genetically-tractable organism to decipher Complex I manufacture. [less ▲]

The book Statistical Parametric Mapping: The Analysis of Functional Brain Images (2007) provides the background and methodology for the analysis of all types of brain imaging data, from functional magnetic resonance imaging to magnetoencephalography. Critically, "Statistical Parametric Mapping" provides a widely accepted conceptual framework which allows treatment of all these different modalities. The book takes the reader from the basic concepts underlying the analysis of neuroimaging data to cutting edge approaches that would be difficult to find in any other source. The material is presented in an incremental way so that the reader can understand the precedents for each new development. This book will be particularly useful to neuroscientists engaged in any form of brain mapping; who have to contend with the real-world problems of data analysis and understanding the techniques they are using. It is primarily a scientific treatment and a didactic introduction to the analysis of brain imaging data. It can be used as both a textbook for students and scientists starting to use the techniques, as well as a reference for practicing neuroscientists. [less ▲]

We present predictions on the total cross sections and on the ratio of the real part to the imaginary part of the elastic amplitude (rho parameter) for present and future pp and pbar p colliders, and on total cross sections for gamma p -> hadrons at cosmic-ray energies and for gamma gamma -> hadrons up to sqrt(s)=1 TeV. These predictions are based on a study of many possible analytic parametrisations and invoke the current hadronic dataset at t=0. The uncertainties on total cross sections, including the systematic theoretical errors, reach 1% at RHIC, 3% at the Tevatron, and 10% at the LHC, whereas those on the rho parameter are respectively 10%, 17%, and 26%.

An extension of the (nonexact-perturbed) forward-backward method for finding a zero of a sum of two maximal monotone operators is proposed, using a nonlinear metric, tied to Bregman functions. Results of weak and strong convergence for a sequence generated by such a method are established, under similar assumptions to those appearing in the context of the proximal point algorithm.

Multi-core CPUs, along with recent advances in memory and buses, render commodity hardware a strong candidate for building fexible and high-performance software routers. With a forwarding plane physically composed of many packet processing components and operations, resource allocation in multi-core systems is not trivial. Indeed, packets crossing cache hierarchies degrade forwarding performance, since the bottleneck is main memory access. Therefore, forwarding path allocation and input/output processing become challenging, especially when states and data structures have to be shared among multiple cores. In this context, we investigate a set of input/output processing architectures, as well as resource allocation strategies for forwarding paths. For each packet processing operation, we uncover the gains and possible implications by either running different components concurrently or replicating the same components across different cores.

We investigated the expression of Fos, the protein product of the immediate early gene c-fos in the brain of male Japanese quail after they engaged in either appetitive or consummatory sexual behavior (i. e., copulation). For 1 h, castrated males treated with testosterone were either allowed to copulate with a female or to exhibit a learned social proximity response indicative of appetitive sexual behavior. Control birds were either left in their home cage or placed in the experimental chamber but did not exhibit the appetitive sexual behavior because they had never learned it. Fos expression was studied with an immunocytochemical procedure in two sets of adjacent sections through the entire forebrain. These sections were immunolabelled with 2 different antibodies raised against a synthetic fragment corresponding to the 21 carboxy-terminal residues of the chicken Fos sequence. Contrary to the results of a previous study in which gonadally intact birds were used, Fos induction was observed neither in the medial preoptic nucleus nor in the nucleus intercollicularis in birds that had interacted for 1 h with a female. This may be related to a lower frequency of copulation in the testosterone-implanted birds than in intact birds, or to differences in the time the brains were collected after the birds engaged in sexual behavior between the two studies (60 min in this study, 120 min in the previous study). The performance of copulation and/or appetitive sexual behavior increased the number of Fos-immunoreactive cells in the ventral hyperstriatum, medial archistriatum, and nucleus striae terminalis. These increases were observed using both antibodies, although each antibody produced minor differences in the number of Fos-immunoreactive cells observed. Using one of the antibodies, but not the other, increases in Fos immunoreactivity were also observed in the nucleus accumbens and hyperstriatum after either copulation or appetitive sexual behavior. These differences illustrate how minor technical variations in the Fos immunocytochemical procedure influence the results obtained. These differences also show that Fos induction in a number of brain regions is observed after performance of consummatory (copulation) as well as appetitive (looking at the female) sexual behavior. This induction is, therefore, not related solely to the control of copulatory acts but, presumably, also to the processing in a variety of telencephalic association areas of stimuli originating from the female. The observation that increased Fos immunoreactivity is present in birds that had learned the response indicative of appetitive sexual behavior, and not in those that had not learned the behavior, further indicates that it is not simply the sight of the female that results in this Fos induction, but the analysis of the relevant stimuli in a sexually explicit context. Conditioned neural activity resulting from a learned association between the stimulus female and the performance of copulatory behavior may also explain some aspects of the brain activation observed in birds viewing, but not allowed to interact with, the female.
