A multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock (MCDF) technique has been used for computing the wavelengths and transition probabilities for lines in the X-ray spectra of the gallium-like ions from Yb XL to U LXII. Results are presented for the 4s(2)4p-4s(2)4d and 4s(2)4p-4s4p(2) allowed transitions (E1) as well as for the forbidden transitions (M1 and E2) within the ground configuration 4s(2)4p. A comparison of the calculated wavelengths with the few experimental results available is also presented. (c) 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

The main objective of the present study is to introduce a rational method of aiding to design the envelope of a building, during the sketch design. The design method has for both objectives the respect of building costs (for the construction itself and in use), and the improvement of the energy performance. In the multicriteria and multiactors context, this interactive tool is using decision-making aids, in order to improve the architectural response to the client’s and regulations requirements, while aiding: - the project authors in their conception tasks, by making up the project architectural forces, in accordance with the actors’ objectives; - and the client in his participation in the multiple partners negotiation.

The present study explores a Multiple Criteria Decision Aid (MCDA) procedure, an aid to help project authors optimise the building envelope during the sketch design, where a significant number of choices are fixed, having a determining impact on the future building cost and use. The objective of the design method is the respect of building costs – for the building construction and use – and the energy performance improvement. An interactive tool has been developed within multicriteria and multiactors context. In order to improve the architectural response to the client’s and regulation requirements, it gives decision-making aids to: - the project authors: in making up the project architectural forces, in accordance with the actors’ objectives; - the client: in reaching his objectives of costs, building duration, comfort and functionality, while serenely assuming his responsibilities related to his building energy and environment performances. The design tool is organised in two linked modules, any actor may go in any module in any time: - the first one manages parameters describing the project requirements; - the graphic module allows to draw the sketch; it calculates geometric parameter values that it puts back in the first module. Permanently informed on cost and energy performances, the user can any time search for optimal scenario giving best satisfaction or compromise: he has at his disposal at lot of graphs illustrating the performance sensitivity to parameter variation, as well as an optimisation procedure using a genetic algorithm to find the most efficient parameter set. The software is organised to manage new building projects of housings, schools and offices (small to medium size projects). [less ▲]

The PC software AMCE is proposing building actors (owner, project authors… ) a Multiple Criteria Decision Aid procedure (MCDA) to optimise the building envelope about cost and energy performances, during the sketch design. Two main modules are linked, where the user interactively goes: - the first one managers parameters describing the project requirements; - the graphic pen-based module allows to draw the sketch; it calculates geometric parameter values and put them back in the first module. Permanently informed on foreseeable performances, the user can any time search for optimal scenario giving best satisfaction (manoactor optimisation) or most preferred compromise (multiactors optimisation).

In the scantling design of a passenger ship, minimum production cost, minimum weight and maximum moment of inertia (stiffness) are conflicting objectives. For that purpose, recent improvements were made to the LBR-5 software (French acronym of “Stiffened Panels Software”, version 5.0) to optimize the scantling of ship sections by considering production cost, weight and moment of inertia in the optimization objective function. Moreover, IACS requirements regarding bending, shearing and buckling strength are currently available in LBR-5. Until now, only raw scantling optimizations were performed with LBR-5. Thanks to new developments using heuristics, it is now possible to realize discrete optimization so that a standardized and “ready to use” set of optimum scantlings can be obtained. [less ▲]

Loss of VHR phosphatase causes cell cycle arrest in HeLa carcinoma cells, suggesting that VHR inhibition may be a useful approach to halt the growth of cancer cells. We recently reported that VHR is upregulated in several cervix cancer cell lines as well as in carcinomas of the uterine cervix. Here we report the development of multidentate small-molecule inhibitors of VHR that inhibit its enzymatic activity at nanomolar concentrations and exhibit antiproliferative effects on cervix cancer cells. Chemical library screening was used to identify hit compounds, which were further prioritized in profiling and kinetic experiments. SAR analysis was applied in the search for analogs with improved potency and selectivity, resulting in the discovery of novel inhibitors that are able to interact with both the phosphate-binding pocket and several distinct hydrophobic regions within VHR’s active site. This multidentate binding mode was confirmed by X-ray crystallography. The inhibitors decreased the proliferation of cervix cancer cells, while growth of primary normal keratinocytes was not affected. These compounds may be a starting point to develop drugs for the treatment of cervical cancer. [less ▲]

The use of tools like multimensional scaling help to calculate "proximities" between all feelings of belonging and help design a global map of identities. [less ▲]

Nivat's conjecture is about the link between the pure periodicity of a subset M of Z^2, i.e., invariance under translation by a fixed vector, and some upper bound on the function counting the number of different rectangular blocks occurring in $M$. Attempts to solve this conjecture have been considered during the last fifteen years. Let d>1. A legitimate extension to a multidimensional setting of the notion of periodicity is to consider sets of Z^d definable by a first order formula in the Presburger arithmetic <Z;<,+>. With this latter notion and using a powerful criterion due to Muchnik, we solve an analogue of Nivat's conjecture and characterize sets of Z^d definable in <Z;<,+> in terms of some functions counting recurrent blocks, that is, blocks occurring infinitely often.

Frequently, candidates at aptitude multiple choice test miss attention, motivation or preparation and show underachievement or overachievement. Similarly, at surveys respondents show frequently misfitting patterns of responses. Their result does not correspond any more to their true aptitude or attitude, an inappropriate response pattern being obtained. New multidimensional models specific to polytomous responses circumvent these situations and diminish considerably the associated person bias. Multidimensional polytomous item response models adding new person parameters to the trait of the candidate are proposed. In the spirit of previous Raiche’s dichotomous responses IRT propositions, like the discrimination and don’t know item parameters, these models offer fluctuation and don’t know person parameters. Estimation methods, results from simulation showing the efficacy of these models and recommendations for the design of testing situations will be presented. [less ▲]
