The Liège Intra-Nuclear Cascade model (INCL4) has been shown to be quite successful for the description of spallation reactions. However its validity domain is limited to an upper incident energy of ~2 GeV, because inelastic elementary processes are restricted to the excitation and de-excitation of the Delta resonance. In this thesis, the INCL4 model is extended to higher incident energy. This is realised by including other inelastic elementary collisions, direct multipion production in elementary nucleon-nucleon and pion-nucleon collisions. This is somehow opposite to the usual extension to high energy of such models, as it is usually realised by including excitation of heavier baryonic resonances. Experimental data and isospin symmetry have been exploited in the implementation of multipion channels, but we could not avoid to introduce specific models for the energy-momentum and charge repartition on the final pions. The predictions of the modified model for production of protons, neutrons and charged pions by proton and pion beams off nuclei are compared with experimental data. A short study on nuclear fragmentation is also presented. [less ▲]

Methane (CH4) is one of the most abundant greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere, with current mean volume mixing ratio close to 1800 ppb. Since methane has a global warming potential of 25 (100-yr horizon) and an atmospheric lifetime of 12 years, the Kyoto Protocol has included it among the species to be regulated to limit global warming. Anthropogenic sources of methane are mainly energy production (coal and leaks) and agriculture while main natural sources are swamps and biomass waste. The main sink of methane is oxidation in the troposphere, primarily by reaction with the hydroxyl radical. Methane trends have exhibited significant changes during the last twenty-five years. For instance, long-term monitoring of its vertical total column above the high-altitude station of the Jungfraujoch (46.5°N, 8°E, 3580 m asl) has indeed allowed to derive column changes ranging from +0.72% in 1987-1988 to +0.14% in 1999-2000 (Zander et al., 2002), relative to 1988 and 2000, respectively. More recently and for the same site, Duchatelet et al. (2010) have even reported a significant slowdown of -0.02%/yr between years 2000 and 2005. This study also showed that since then, CH4 is on the rise again, at a rate close to +0.30%/yr. While the numbers reported here above have been derived from the Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) data set starting in 1984, earlier pioneering observations have been collected at the Jungfraujoch since 1950, using grating spectrometers. During the 1958-1975 period, the main objectives has been the study of the solar photosphere in the visible and the near infrared and the publication of high-resolution solar atlases. From 1976 to 1989, narrow-band IR solar absorption observations achieving a spectral resolution of about 0.02 cm-1 have been recorded with the high-performance double-pass grating spectrometer. Analysis of these historical spectra provides a unique opportunity to extend the Jungfraujoch’s total column time series of important atmospheric gases, including methane, by nearly 10 years. The aim of this contribution is to present the inversion strategy adopted to derive CH4 from the grating spectra, using the SFIT-2 algorithm (v3.91) We will evaluate the impact of resolution, spectroscopic parameters (from the EU HYMN project -see www.knmi.nl/samen/hymn-, and from HITRAN 2004), atmospheric pressure and temperature profiles on the error budget. The 1976-1989 total column time series produced will be presented and critically discussed. In particular, we will identify and correct for possible biases between double-pass grating spectrometer measurements and more recent FTIR total columns. The harmonized and consolidated time series will be investigated to characterize the long-term trend of methane for the 1976-2010 time period. Comparisons with synthetic data produced by the CHASER 3-dimensional chemical transport model will also be presented and analyzed. [less ▲]

This paper deals with unified elasto-plastic and elastic-visco-plastic constitutive equations for metals submitted to large deformations. We present here a newly developed time integration algorithm which is an extension to the visco-plastic range of the classical radial return algorithm for plasticity. The resulting implicit algorithm is both efficient and very inexpensive. This algorithm is also subsequently extended to frictional problems where it allows a generalisation of the classical Coulomb dry friction criterion to a criterion depending on the relative slip velocity such as those encountered in the hydrodynamic regime.

PEGASE (Planification Et Gestion de l’ASsainissement des Eaux) is an integrated model “basin/river” which makes possible to calculate in a deterministic way the water quality of rivers according to pollutant contributions and releases, for various stationary hydrological situations (see http://hdl.handle.net/2268/35224 for more information). In the scope of the Water Framework Directive international coordination, the transnational surface water quality model PEGASE is already in use (since 2005) for the Southern part of the Meuse basin (France, Luxemburg, Wallonia and a small part of Flanders). It was thus of great interest to extend this surface water quality application to the Northern part of the Meuse basin, i.e. the German, Flemish and Dutch downstream parts of the basin, in order to cover the entire district. This document describes the tasks which were devoted to the Research & Development Unit of the Aquapôle of the University of Liège (Aquapôle-ULg) in order to realize the extension of the Pegase database to the German Maas basin and to run the model on the German watershed.

We consider extensions and restrictions of Wythoff's game having exactly the same set of P positions as the original game. No strict subset of rules give the same set of P positions. On the other hand, we characterize all moves that can be adjoined while preserving the original set of P positions. Testing if a move belongs to such an extended set of rules is shown to be doable in polynomial time. Many arguments rely on the infinite Fibonacci word, automatic sequences and the corresponding number system. With these tools, we provide new two-dimensional morphisms generating an infinite picture encoding respectively P positions of Wythoff's game and moves that can be adjoined. [less ▲]

Wythoff's game is a century old classical two players combinatorial game. When studying this game, Beatty sequences associated with the Golden Ratio, syntactical properties of the representations of integers in the Fibonacci or Zeckendorf numeration system and the morphic Fibonacci word appear naturally in characterizations of its P-positions. Recall that whatever is the move played from a P-position, the other player has a winning strategy. Contrarily to the usual approach where one defines a new game by a set of rules and then tries to characterize the corresponding set of P-positions, our motivations are to proceed the other way around: keep the original set of P-positons while changing the rules. We consider extensions and restrictions of Wythoff's game having exactly the same set of P-positions as the original game. Our results are the following one: no strict subset of rules gives the same set of P-positions. On the other hand, we characterize all moves that can be adjoined while preserving the original set of P-positions. Testing if a move belongs to such an extended set of rules is shown to be done in polynomial time. In this talk, we won't consider many game theoretical aspects (but we will recall some basic facts on combinatorial games). We focus mainly on the role played by numeration systems, regular languages and bidimensional words generated by substitutions/morphisms. Indeed, games like this one provide nice interaction between combinatorics on words and combinatorial game theory. For instance, the set of P-positions of Wythoff's game are "coded" by the infinite Fibonacci word. Therefore, many arguments rely on this word, on automatic sequences and on the corresponding numeration systems. With these tools, we provide new bidimensional (shape-symmetric in the sense of Arnaud Maes) morphisms generating an infinite picture encoding respectively P-positions of Wythoff's game and moves that can be adjoined preserving the same set of P-positions.
