CONCLUSION : My intention has been to go beyond a general description and formulate precise proposals based on practical exp.eriments in initial and continued training. My first concern was to avoid utopianism. The educational forms of the forthcoming decades are becoming fairly clear. Following the recent example of medicine, educational science will speedily gain in rigour and efficacy. In fact, our theoretical and experimental knowledge is already in a position to introduce considerable improvements in the education system. One essential condition (though there are others) is to ensure permanent communication between practice and research. Most countries are still far from having reached this stage. As I said at the ouniet. education (like medicine) cannot be a dry science and even less a technocratic one. Man's infinite complexity precludes an exhaustive knowledge of his nature and. behaviour; his extreme sensitivity makes any mechanisation of human relations unbearable. Perhaps, however, we are entitled. for the moment at least. to grant a certain preponderance to scientific pedagogy, because it is entering on its first great period of expansion after thousands of years during which the art and the craft of teaching reigned supreme. Introducing teachers to practical research seems an excellent method of scientific training. But I certainly would not •give it exclusive importance in teacher training. I believe equally in the gradual development of a sense of "caring" in a Hippocratic, practitioner-patient sense. [less ▲]

The most widely used time integration algorithms for finite-element, based on the Newmark family, are numerically stable only for linear models. Using a variational formulation of elasto-plastic updates for which the stress tensor always derives from an incremental potential, even when plastic behavior is considered, a new Energy-Dissipative Momentum Conserving time integration algorithms can easily be developed. Indeed, the incremental potential guarantees the verification of the numerical dissipation of energy for non-linear elasto-plastic dynamics. [less ▲]

EPCs in their actual form, calculated with a standardized approach which purposefully (and understandably), gets human factor out of the equations, do not allow appropriation of the results by potential buyers or tenants. Often distant from reality, overestimating consumption, they usually result in a general misunderstanding and misuse of the document. This study aims at verifying that the actual calculation method used in certification could approach the objectives it has been designed for, by using additional data on occupants’ behaviour and household characteristics.

Consider the regression model Y = m(X) + σ(X) Ɛ where m(X) = E[Y|X] and σ²(X)=Var[Y|X] are unknown smooth functions and the error Ɛ , with unknown distribution, is independent of the covariate X. The pair (X;Y) is subject to generalized bias selection and the response to right censoring. We construct a new estimator for the cumulative distribution function of the error Ɛ , where the estimators of m(.) and σ²(.) are obtained by extending the conditional estimation methods introduced in de Uña-Alvarez and Iglesias-Perez (2008). The asymptotic properties of the functions m(.) and σ(.) are obtained. A bootstrap technique is proposed to select the smoothing parameter involved in the procedure. This method is studied via extended simulations and applied to real unemployment data. [less ▲]

Nous aurions pu nous limiter dans cette introduction à présenter la méthodologie du séminaire. Mais celle-ci contient un trompe-l’oeil : en réalité, le séminaire constitua le moment fort d’un processus complexe qui inscrit dans le temps un rapprochement improbable entre deux groupes, celui des coopérateurs de Lucéole et des ornithologues de la région. C’est pourquoi cette introduction prend le temps de refaire ce cheminement : du premier cadrage opéré en préambule, justification d’une expertise citoyenne aux côtés de l’étude d’incidence jusqu’au processus de rapprochement entre les deux groupes locaux : Lucéole et ornithologues [less ▲]

Abstract numeration systems were introduced in 2001 by P. Lecomte and M. Rigo. This new way to represent numbers generalizes that of usual positional numeration systems such as integer base numeration systems and linear numeration systems. Some standard properties are preserved in this wider framework though some others are not. Yet, the advantages of these systems stem from their great generality: current research on this subject strives to highlight the properties that are independent of the target numeration system, such as properties related to the complexity of the numeration language. In this talk I will introduce this topic. In particular, I will present many open questions in the area and highlight the connections with combinatorics on words. [less ▲]

This paper is dedicated to the physical understanding of electrostatic forces with a one-dimensional reference problem. First a non-dimensional analysis prescribes the kind of assumptions to consider for the electric field model. An analytical study of electro-mechanical coupling is then performed to understand the type of non-linearity added by electrostatic forces, and static and dynamic analysis are used to define new characteristic parameters. To come closer to more realistic problems, cubic mechanical stiffness is added to account for the large displacement hypothesis prescribed for certain types of MEMS and damping effects are studied.
