Although they are the most widely used time integration algorithms for finite-element discretizations, algorithms based on the Newmark family are numerically stable only for linear models. To overcome that drawback, researches have recently focused on time integration algorithms stable in the non-linear range, leading to the development of Energy Momentum Conserving Algorithms or EMCA. A new Energy Momentum Conserving Algorithm was recently presented by the authors for elasto-plastic material models. This algorithm is based on a variational formulation of elasto-plastic updates for which the stress tensor always derives from an incremental potential, even when plastic behavior is considered. In this work this formalism is used to develop Energy-Dissipative Momentum-Conserving time integration algorithms, which have property of being stable in non-linear range, but also dissipate high-frequency numerical modes to improve the convergence properties. Using the potential existence of the variational updates framework, the verification of the numerical dissipation of energy in the non-linear range can easily be demonstrated. [less ▲]

In the past ten years, rapid technological developments in the field of neuroimaging have produced a cornucopia of new techniques for examining both the structure and function of the human brain in vivo. In specialized centers, many of these methods are now being employed routinely in the assessment of patients diagnosed with disorders of consciousness, mapping patterns of residual function and dysfunction and helping to reduce diagnostic errors between related conditions such as the vegetative and minimally conscious states. Moreover, such efforts are beginning to provide important new prognostic indicators, helping to disentangle differences in outcome on the basis of a greater understanding of the underlying mechanisms responsible and providing information that will undoubtedly contribute to improved therapeutic choices in these challenging populations. Of course, these emerging technologies and the new information that they provide will bring new ethical challenges to this area and will have profound implications for clinical care and medical-legal decision-making in this population of patients. We review the most recent work in this area and suggest that the future integration of emerging neuroimaging techniques with existing clinical and behavioral methods of assessment will pave the way for new and innovative applications, both in basic neuroscience and in clinical practice.

This article presents an analysis of the literature of the last 2 years on the treatment of sepsis and septic shock. It appears that most of the antimediator therapies applied in phase II or III clinical trials yielded disappointing results. But, many other therapeutic approaches are proposed or are ongoing, and many papers report critical analysis of the reasons for the lack of success of past clinical trials. [less ▲]

The most luminous stars are our first probes for exploring the stellar content of distant galaxies. They have also been used as standard candles for extragalactic distance determinations. The authors show that Sk -66°41, one of the brightest stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), is a multiple system consisting of at least six components. This result has important consequences for the understanding of star formation mechanisms, especially the upper limit to stellar masses. Moreover, when primary distance indicators are not available, care should be taken in using the brightest blue stars. The derived distances, depending on the number of cluster members, can easily be underestimated by more than a factor 2, leading to larger values for the Hubble constant. [less ▲]

This paper presents an account of observations of the 1984 July 22 appulse of Neptune to SAO 186001. An occultation of 0.8 s duration (FWHM) was detected from La Silla at 05:40:08.6 UTC by two telescopes operating in I and K bands. This, combined with earlier observations led to the recognition of the existence of an irregular ring around Neptune. [less ▲]

In the last decade, the myth of the pristine tropical forest has been seriously challenged. In central Africa, there is a growing body of evidence for past human settlements along the Atlantic forests, but very little information is available about human activities further inland. In this study, we aimed at determining the temporal and spatial patterns of human activities in an archaeologically unexplored area of 110,000 km² located in the northern Congo Basin and currently covered by dense forest. Fieldwork involving archaeology as well as archaeobotany was undertaken in 36 sites located in southeastern Cameroon and in the northern Republic of Congo. Evidence of past human activities through either artifacts or charred botanical remains was observed in all excavated test pits across the study area. The set of 43 radiocarbon dates extending from 15,000 BP to the present time showed a bimodal distribution in the Late Holocene which was interpreted as two phases of human expansion with an intermediate phase of depopulation. The 2300–1300 BP phase is correlated with the migrations of supposed farming populations from northwestern Cameroon. Between 1300 and 670 BP, less material could be dated. This is in agreement with the population collapse already reported for central Africa. Following this, the 670–20 BP phase corresponds to a new period of human expansion known as the Late Iron Age. These results bring new and extensive evidence of human activities in the northern Congo Basin and support the established chronology for human history in central Africa. [less ▲]

Based on a comprehensive sample of 170 securities traded continuously on the Brussels Stock Exchange from December 1966 to December 1983 this paper presents evidence which indicates that the stationarity of beta-coefficients is not as strong as reported in previous studies which were based on smaller samples. It is shown, however, that beta forecast can be generally improved using an adjustment method and that the improvement is highest for portfolios of increasing size. [less ▲]

Controversies about the safety of different postmenopausal hormone therapies (HTs) started 30 years ago and reached a peak in 2003 after the publication of the results from the Women Health Initiative (WHI) trial and the Million Women Study (MWS) [Writing group for the women's health initiative investigations. Risks and benefits of estrogen plus progestin in healthy postmenopausal women. JAMA 2002;288:321–33; Million women study collaborators. Breast cancer and hormone-replacement therapy in the million women study. Lancet 2003;362:419–27]. The single HT formulation used in the WHI trial for non hysterectomized women—an association of oral conjugated equine estrogens (CEE–0.625 mg/day) and a synthetic progestin, medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA–2.5 mg/day)—increases the risks of venous thromboembolism, cardiovascular disease, stroke and breast cancer. The MWS, an observational study, showed an increased breast cancer risk in users of estrogens combined with either medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA), norethisterone, or norgestrel. It is unclear and questionable to what extent these results might be extrapolated to other HRT regimens, that differ in their doses, compositions and administration routes, and that were not assessed in the WHI trial and the MWS. Significant results were achieved with the publication of the WHI estrogen-only arm study [Anderson GL, Limacher M, Assaf AR, et al. Effects of conjugated equine estrogen in postmenopausal women with hysterectomy: the Women's Health Initiative randomized controlled trial. JAMA 2004;291:1701–1712] in which hormone therapy was reserved to women who had carried out hysterectomy. What emerged from this study will allow us to have some important argument to develop.
