Problems in economy and finance have started to attract the interest of statistical physicists. Fundamental problems pertain to the existence or not of long-, medium-, short-range power-law correlations in economic systems as well as to the presence of financial cycles. Methods like the extended detrented fluctuation analysis, and the multi-affine analysis are recalled emphasizing their value in sorting out correlation ranges and predictability. Among spectacular results, the possibility of crash predictions is indicated. The well known financial analyst technique, the so-called moving average, is shown to raise questions about fractional Brownian motion properties. Finally, the (m,k)-Zipf method and the i-variability diagram technique are presented for sorting out short range correlations. Analogies with other fields of modem applied statistical physics are also presented in view of some universal openess. [less ▲]

The random response of civil engineering structures to the buffeting action of wind loads is typically composed of several components, usually referred to as the background component, in the low fre- quency zone and the resonant component(s) in the neighborhood of modal natural frequencies. It has become customary to study separately and add the contributions of these components to the total response, at least as far as the second order response (variance of structural responses) is concerned. Such a decomposition exists but is less usual for the computation of covariances of modal coordinates or of structural displacements, which are in turn necessary for the determination of internal stresses. The question of such a decomposition also holds for nonlinear systems, or even for the higher statistical moments of a linear structural system, should the response be non Gaussian. With very wide ranges of applicability, the Multiple Timescale Spectral Analysis summarizes under a unified framework recent works aiming at the development of such decompositions. This paper briefly pictures this particular theory based on perturbation methods, and provides illustrations of its applicability to the problems cited above. [less ▲]

The new geological cartography campaign of the Walloon Region, which has begun in 1990, is mainly based on recent field data. Each map is published on 1:25,000 scale and is accompanied by a explanatory booklet where lithostratigraphy, tectonics, hydrogeology and mineral resources are described. These maps are very useful in every human activity involving the knowledge of the underground such as mining, management of dumpsites, civil engineering, etc. [less ▲]

In his talk, Dr. Georges will present some applications using inorganic photorefractive materials that present potentialities in various fields. He will focus particularly on recent works that gave birth to commercial systems and those that were granted "Best applications of photorefractive materials" in OSA sponsored or co-sponsored Topical Meetings on Photorefractive Effects, Materials and Devices like: - Holographic filtering in telecoms and laser mode filtering. - Dynamic hologram recording: laser ultrasound non-destructive testing. - Holographic interferometry for metrology and non-destructive testing. Dr. Georges will discuss the figures of merit of recording materials and try to initiate a debate for new application potentialities related to new photorefractive or photosensitive materials.

Cette étude présente la difficile mission des inspecteurs du travail du Burkina Faso devant appliquer la loi afin de protéger les enfants travailleurs. Dans un pays où 45% de la population vit sous le seuil de pauvreté, les inspecteurs font face à des nombreuses obstacles dans leurs pratiques. Ils doivent en permanence gérer la marge du risque entre, d’une part, appliquer la loi sur la protection de l’enfance et, d’autre part, reconnaître les réalités de vie des personnes. La conclusion montre que les inspecteurs font face à une mission impossible et que la politique de protection de l’enfance ne peut être efficace sans moyens de sa mise en œuvre. [less ▲]
