En Europe, comme sur d’autres continents, le régime démocratique s’est progressivement développé depuis le 19e siècle. Le droit électoral assure désormais assez largement aux gouvernés la possibilité de participer égalitairement au choix de leurs représentants politiques. Certaines règles électorales produisent toutefois encore des inégalités qui sont contestables et qui sont régulièrement mises en cause devant les plus hautes juridictions, telle que la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme et les cours constitutionnelles nationales. La conférence visera à synthétiser la jurisprudence pertinente et à esquisser la conception de la démocratie qui en ressort. Elle mettra notamment l’accent sur la tendance des juridictions à admettre les règles électorales qui favorisent l’accès au parlement des seuls partis considérés comme « suffisamment représentatifs », au détriment des formations politiques nouvelles ou plus marginales.

The use of crop biotechnology is steadily increasing in the agrosystems of industrialized countries. Recent advances in genome editing are anticipated to further accentuate this trend. Given its potential for low input agriculture, there is a need to bring the benefits of crop biotechnology to developing and emerging countries. The challenge goes beyond the mere generation of transgenic crops because development and deployment of genetically engineered crops require local capacities and support from the authorities. In the recent years, we have used biotechnological approaches to improve cassava, the most important root crop in the tropics. Cassava production and processing suffer from several constraints, including viral diseases, drought and post-harvest deterioration. A better understanding of crop responses to biotic and abiotic stresses combined with genetic engineering approaches can be particularly instrumental to generate plants with improved traits. We have used Omics approaches to characterize cassava response to stresses and to subsequently implement biotechnological approaches for trait improvement. Smallholders and industries in cassava growing regions need traits such as resistance against cassava mosaic and brown streak diseases, prolonged shelf-life, drought tolerance, modified starch and improved nutritional content. Importantly those technologies should be implemented in local germplasm to secure impact for the local value chains. We actively collaborate with local institutions for technology transfer and assessment of cassava technologies in the field. [less ▲]

Les techniques d'information et de communication permettent aujourd'hui de concevoir des façons de faire de la recherche beaucoup plus efficaces, plus rapides, plus fondamentalement généreuses et désintéressées qu'auparavant. Cependant, l'évolution s'avère beaucoup plus lente qu'on ne pourrait s'y attendre. Elle est même frileuse. La cause de ce quasi immobilisme réside dans le conservatisme des procédures d'évaluation de la recherche et des chercheurs. Tant que celles-ci en resteront aux principes qui prévalaient au siècle dernier, il ne faut pas s'attendre à de vrais progrès. Pourquoi tant d'immobilisme dans un univers qui se dit progressiste, inventif, créatif et ouvert ? Un dégel n'est-il pas inévitable ? souhaitable ? Les pratiques traditionnelles ne sont-elles pas devenues moralement indéfendables en regard des moyens disponibles ? Est-ce une fatalité que la Science se montre aussi progressiste dans sa recherche et conservatrice pour son évaluation ? La Science Ouverte crée une brèche dans cette muraille d'un autre temps.

Observation of solar radiation in the infrared have been performed since the mid-fifties at the International Scientific Station of the Jungfraujoch (ISSJ, Swiss Alps, 46.5°N, 8.0°E, 3580 m a.s.l.), in the framework of the Network for Detection of Atmospheric Change (NDACC, www.ndacc.org). Systematic monitoring of the chemical composition of the Earth's atmosphere started in 1984 by using two state-of-the‐art Fourier Transform InfraRed (FTIR) instruments, while grating spectrometers were used previously in the early 1950s, and from the mid-1970s onwards, covering 40 years of quasi-continuous solar observations. In this framework, I will discuss optimization of retrieval strategies from infrared solar observations and methane trend analysis. [less ▲]

Eigentlich liegt der Fall klar: nach der Befreiung im Herbst 1944 wurde das kleine Grenzgebiet von Eupen-Malmedy, das im Mai 1940 vom „Großdeutschen Reich“ annektiert worden war, wieder belgisch. Der deutsch-belgische Ausgleichsvertrag vom September 1956 bekräftigte dies nochmals. Doch wurde diese offizielle Position zwar im Bonner Auswärtigen Amt vertreten, jedoch nicht von allen Ministerien geteilt. Vor allem durch das Bundesministerium für Gesamtdeutsche Fragen erfolgte nach 1949 eine „Betreuung“ für die Minderheit, die Fragen nach den Kontinuitäten zur Vorkriegszeit aufwirft. Wenn auch die belgische Souveränität in den „Ostkantonen“ nicht mehr offen infrage gestellt wurde, fand dort in kleinem Umfang eine geheim gehaltene „Förderung“ kulturpolitischer Tätigkeiten statt – auch weil der belgische Staat nur wenige finanzielle Mittel bereitstellte. Erst mit der sich anbahnenden Schaffung einer „deutschen Kulturgemeinschaft“ im Zuge der ersten Verfassungsrevision in Belgien und nach dem Eintritt der SPD in die Bundesregierung wurde diese finanzielle Hilfe Ende der 1960er Jahre eingestellt. An ihre Stelle traten nunmehr deutsche Stiftungen, was Ende der 1980er Jahre zu einem politischen Skandal in der heutigen Deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft führte. Der Vortrag fragt nach der Bedeutung von „Eupen-Malmedy“ für das deutsch-belgische Verhältnis seit 1945 und zeigt die Schwierigkeiten für die westdeutschen Akteure, eine auswärtige Kulturpolitik zu konzipieren und dabei die Fallen der Vergangenheit zu vermeiden.

Il presente contributo intende approfondire i caratteri iconografici delle realtà paesaggistiche urbane e naturali rappresentate nei disegni di alcune personalità della cultura belga di fine Ottocento. In particolare le immagini presenti nei tre volumi di Emile Bruylant, (La Belgique illustrée, editi nel 1892) – hanno registrato quei caratteri urbani e naturali che il Belgio vedeva dissolversi in favore di un preteso sviluppo politico ed economico del periodo di Leopoldo II. Nell’ultimo decennio del XIX secolo una grande opera di sensibilizzazione nei confronti della tutela del paesaggio belga urbano e naturale fu portata avanti in Belgio da numerosi artisti, i quali furono tra i primi a nutrire spiccata sensibilità verso i temi della conservazione e delle testimonianze storiche. Il contributo intende dunque analizzare il legame tra le immagini riportate nei volumi e lo sviluppo di talune posizioni conservative che nell’ambito belga è possibile riscontrare in alcune figure, tra cui quella di Charles Buls) e nell’ azione della Société Nationale pour la protection des sites et des monuments.

Coining the concept of ‘graphiation’ to theorize the narrative functions of drawing in comics, Philippe Marion’s Traces en cases has become a seminal text in comics studies due to its further theorizations by, among, others, Jan Baetens, Jared Gardner, and Simon Grennan. This presentation hopes to make an original contribution to these discussions by focusing on the issue of quotation and redrawing in graphic narratives, practices that interrogate how the ‘graphic trace’ relates to the drawing subject. I will compare and contrast two culture-specific terms: ‘case mémorable’ in the context of Franco-Belgian comics and ‘swiping’ in the context of American comic books. Both terms point at how comics images circulate across the borders of their original formats trough different technicalities of reproduction (mechanical or hand-crafted) that split them from both their immediate and larger contexts. While these terms are frequently used by creators, fans and readers alike, they have gained no currency in comics theory. My attempt, however, is not to argue for their inclusion within that vocabulary but rather to understand how these terms articulate, within the comics world, debates about quotation and redrawing. I will briefly retrace the genealogy of these terms in fan discourses to finally show how two contemporary cartoonists–Charles Burns and Olivier Josso Hamel–revisit them in ways that foreground the cultural and narrative stakes of reusing ‘old’ comics. Comparing these two terms will shed light on distinct conceptions of copying, originality and quotation, hopefully providing fresh perspectives on the theory of graphiation [less ▲]

Induced anisotropy is a constitutive feature of clays that can be numerically introduced through a proper "Rotational Hardening Rule" allowing the rotation of the yield and the potential plastic surfaces in the stress space. In this presentation, rotational hardening rule of yield surface for clays are first reviewed. Then, two typical rotational hardening rules are selected and compared through simulating drained triaxial tests of two Finnish clays. Furthermore, finite element simulations of a strip rigid footing considering different rotational hardening rules together with the case of isotropic yield surface without rotation are carried out in order to study the consequences of the isotropy assumption and the influence of the rotational hardening rule on the behavior of shallow foundation.

This research contributes to the current efforts for developing probabilistic methods in structural fire engineering (SFE) to foster the shift towards performance-based design in the field. A methodology is presented to assess the risk related to structural failure due to fire in multi-story buildings. At the core of this methodology is the concept of fragility functions, which allows quantifying in a systematic way the effects of the uncertainties in both demand and capacity parameters on the reliability level. The fragility functions, adopted here for the purpose of SFE, yield the conditional probability to reach predefined damage states as a function of an intensity measure of the fire. The damage states are grouped in categories such as ‘slight’, ‘moderate’, ‘extensive’, and ‘complete’, for estimating the magnitude of the damage. The fragility functions are defined for an entire building and depend on parameters such as the structural type and the fire resistance rating of the structural components. As the functions give conditional probabilities, they are completed with probabilistic models for the occurrence of a fire in the building (i.e. likelihood of the hazard) and the expected value of the fire load density (i.e. intensity of the hazard). These models depend on the building occupancy type, surface area, and active fire protection measures. Finally, one can obtain the (total) probability to reach different levels of potential damage for buildings of different typologies, structural design, size and occupancy. In addition, similar to earthquake engineering, one can also estimate the probability of reaching a certain damage state for a given probability of fire hazard. The methodology is illustrated for prototype multi-story steel buildings. An important contribution is the quantification of the safety level at the building scale, as opposed to an individual component. The results provide an insight for the discussion about the evolution of the design codes for a better standardization of this safety level. [less ▲]

From the second half of the last century ecology has been recognized as one of the most important value in landscape design, together with aesthetics and social involvement (Ian H. Thompson). After a period dominated by the prevalence of the aesthetical values in landscape/gardens conception a new perspective arose: the global growth and the effects of exploitation of natural resources have generated an increasing awareness about the impacts of human life on environment and a reflection on new possible way of living balancing the quality of life and the respect for nature in our territories. The ecological approach has developed thanks to some landscape architects contributions, based on their researches on: the displacement from a more anthropocentric to a more ecocentric view in landscape planning (Ian McHarg) and the introduction of the principles of balance, diversity, sustainability in order to learn to perceive and to design healty landscapes. Working with nature, in landscape urbanism, means to activate processes involving plants, animals and people, with the aim of improving the quality of life in urban environment. Therefore ecology is strictly linked to aesthetical and social aspects: landscape design must relate spatial values, by reinterpreting and enhancing the characters of the places, with social values, by introducing activities to strengthen social interactions. In contemporary landscape design, ecology is interpreted as a key approach, concerning mostly regenerative design (J.T Lyle). This innovative concept considers design as the cultural instrument accompanying and orienting ecological processes. In fact landscape design deals with urban development strategies, interventions on urban fringes, reclamation of waste lands: in all cases arise the necessity to rethink the territories starting from the restoration of an interrupted balance between natural resources and anthropic actions. The ecological approach is based on the use of natural elements and dynamics as a means for transformation of the territories. One powerful effect of these interventions is the capacity to recover the relationship between people and the spirit of the places and sometimes, the possibility to build a new identity, especially in rejected areas, and this is a “catalyst act”, involving society in regenerative design programs. New green structures enhancing environmental qualities and protecting biodiversity, agricultural technologies remediating soils and water are only few of the potentials of landscape ecology. Another important consequence of this innovative approach is the rise of a new aesthetics, as “nature is perceived as a process, not as a scenary” (R.Smithson). Recognizing change and uncertainty as the basic dynamics of landscape (M.Antrop), designers methods and sensitivity appear more effective if based on predicting different and open scenarios. But ecology is not a panacea itself: the risks in ecosystem service approach are several. First, specially in public spaces design, there is the risk of confusing the primary values of the action of planting trees and greenery: some aesthetical choices could not represent the ecological efficiency. This happens very often because the client’s will is more oriented to achieve an immediate effect, where vegetation’s use is equated to a decorative device, instead of a new balance generator one. Similarly, choices based on low maintenance perspective are not always synonymous of ecology. Furthermore, in Urban Planning, prescriptions about greenery and trees plantation follow some quantitative parameters instead of qualitative ones. The contribution of landscape design to Urbanism is based on a multidisciplinary approach which tends to detect and enhance those hidden and overwritten features characterizing the “genius loci”. Thus, ecology represents a site specific aspect and its introduction in landscape urbanism supposes a deep knowledge of the process and its effects on environment and on society. [less ▲]

The multiplicity of systems, forms, categories, and practices of kinship has drawn the attention of anthropologists as central for the ways individuals and human groups think and experience their relationships with themselves, others, their society and the world they live in. Transformations – demographic, political, socio-cultural, economic, juridical, scientific, medical, or those related to age or gender – have contributed to constantly (re)define kinship. In particular, recent innovations regarding, among others, Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) and surrogacy, and the debates around same-sex couple marriage and adoption, have been understood as deep breaking points in relation to more "traditional" conceptions of kinship, appearing as yet unprecedented and controversial. From an anthropological point of view, such (re)configurations of kinship testify to a variety of articulation between the social, the cultural and the biological, society and nature, the constructed and the innate – categories central for definitions of kinship. This suggests a need to rethink kinship in all its dimensions, from public to intimate ones. Drawing from anthropology and intending to widen the field of empirical, theoretical and epistemological reflections, this conference invites a crossing of perspectives on contemporary (re)configurations of kinship within the human and social sciences with a focus on ethnographic approaches. It is organized around two main, yet non-exclusive lines of research. The first one wishes to interrogate the ways contemporary (re)configurations of kinship take place in different public and intimate entangled spaces. The second one opens up a debate on epistemology when it comes to crossed and comparative perspectives between contexts, themes or disciplines in order to analyse issues, contributions and limits of such field of research.

A study in Côte d'Ivoire entitled "artisanal and industrial valorization of native cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) and yam (Dioscorea sp)" starches showed that the film produced with starch cassava and vegetable oil showed the most promising coatings capabilities. This film was designed without plasticizer and showed mechanical limits. So, the presence of plasticizer could overcome the fragility of the film, with a commonly used slurry of 15-40/g of glycerol in 100 g of starch. The properties of starch films can be further improved by producing composite films with incorporation of functional additives. Thus, in this present study, starch-based films have been strengthened with addition of a plasticizer (glycerol), an emulsifier (soy lecithin) and a preservative (potassium sorbate). Films were prepared with 5 % oil, 25 and 30 % glycerol, 0 and 5 % soy lecithin and 0.2 g potassium sorbate. Mechanical (Tensile strength and Elongation at break) and water vapor properties of native cassava starch improved variety Olekanga films were determined. Increasing glycerol concentration and soy lecithin addition had no significant effect on water vapor permeability of all films. In opposite significant difference (p <0.05) of glycerol concentration was observed on tensile strength and elongation at break of films. Which was not the case when soy lecithin concentration is increased from 0 to 5 %. Tensile strength decreased with increase in glycerol concentration. Opposite behavior was observed for elongation at break. Films on native starch from improved cassava variety Olekanga in Côte d’Ivoire were less resistant, very elongable with acceptable water vapor permeability. [less ▲]

Actualmente las universidades estructuran sus perfiles de egreso, programas y cursos aplicando dos principios esenciales: (1) el Aprendizaje Basado en Competencias o ABC y (2) el Enfoque Programa. En la presente ponencia se analiza las significaciones e implicaciones de estas expresiones, así como el impacto que tienen sobre las evaluaciones en estos tres niveles. Además se presentan algunas preguntas clave que los docentes pueden (deben) hacerse para autoevaluar sus logros en cada nivel; proceso permanente porque los currículos viven y se trasforman para adaptarse a los cambios en el mundo o para inducirlos. Cada una de las preguntas de autoevaluación se explican en detalle, con conceptos y ejemplos, en el libro Ideas e Innovaciones, Dispositivos de Evaluación de los Aprendizajes en la Educación, o IDEAS (Leclercq y Cabrera, 2014), escrito con la contribución de 16 autores. Para ilustrar lo que se puede hacer al evaluar, en el capítulo 3 de IDEAS, se usa una rosa de los vientos —motivo de la línea gráfica de este encuentro—, la cual describe lo existente o aquello que podría ser. Entre todas estas posibilidades, esta ponencia, presenta aquello que, desde mi punto de vista, se debe hacer. Las preguntas servirán para abordar sucesivamente la estructura de un currículo, la cual puede concebirse como un cubo, que en su cara frontal (dimensión horizontal), contiene a los tres pilares de la formación, siendo el pilar central el de los objetivos o del perfil de egreso, el cual puede articularse en cuatro pisos (dimensión vertical) llamados DIME (competencias Dinámicas, Instrumentales, Metacognitivas y Específicas); el pilar izquierdo representa los métodos y el derecho, las evaluaciones. En este esquema, las evaluaciones a las que puede someterse una propuesta curricular, se sitúan en cuatro niveles de profundidad o de amplitud temporal. El ABC implica que son los docentes, trabajando en equipos, los que deben concebir instrumentos para evaluar desempeños complejos. Se explicará por qué un Enfoque Programa es imprescindible para (1) Concebir situaciones reales o simuladas que agrupen saberes, destrezas y actitudes, (desarrollados en varios cursos), y cómo los docentes, sin perder de vista las competencias (concordancia vertical), pueden preparar a los estudiantes para esto. (2) Que cada curso (o cada actividad de enseñanza-aprendizaje) evidencie la Triple Concordancia entre Objetivos, Métodos y Evaluaciones (concordancia horizontal). Aquí, los criterios de calidad de las evaluaciones serán sólo mencionados, porque los ejemplos de sus aplicaciones a casos concretos se darán en la ponencia de Álvaro Cabrera. Finalmente, expondré lo que es el currículo oculto y cómo combatirlo. Ver documento atado. [less ▲]

A l’instar de la révolution induite par la disponibilité du temps pour chaque individu de la société, la possibilité de connaître sa position géographique conduit à de nouveaux challenges. Actuellement, il est possible de se géolocaliser à n’importe quel endroit du globe. Connaître sa position à l’intérieur d'un bâtiment, d'un centre commercial, voir au sein même d’un rayonnage n’est plus une utopie. Cette disponibilité de géolocalisation conduit d’une part à des changements importants dans la manière d’appréhender l’espace, et d’autre part, à la création de nouveaux services basé sur la connaissance de sa position en temps réel. A cours de cette conférence, nous aborderons les principes et systèmes permettant de collecter et de traiter cette information de position acquise en temps réel. Nous verrons ensuite quelques exemples d’utilisations de cette masse d’information collectée, notamment via l’utilisation de réseaux sociaux. L’exposé proposera volontairement une vision pragmatique de la question de la géolocalisation de la société sans se positionner, a priori, sur ses bienfaits ou ses dérives. [less ▲]

In the vision of educational organisations as loosely coupled systems already depicted by Weick in 1976, the need for a global and integrated management system allowing to optimise dynamically the use of scarce resources in an environment characterized by an increasing pressure to comply to the multiple requirements imposed by the numerous internal and external stakeholders of (Public) Universities is growing. In this context, this study relies on an analysis of the recent literature about risk management in complex organizations and on the first lessons drawn from a first one-year experiment in the implementation of an ERM approach in a Public University context to discuss the interest of developing an effective University Risk Management methodology and protocol in a University and to identify the benefits of ERM for universities.

La rééducation orthophonique des troubles de la voix est un vaste sujet. Mon intention n’est pas de vous exposer des séries d’exercices consacrées à la coordination pneumo-phonique, à la qualité de l’accolement cordal, au placement de la voix dans les résonateurs ou encore à la posture. De nombreux ouvrages orthophoniques expliquent ces pratiques et peuvent aisément enrichir vos connaissances sur le sujet. Après une brève introduction, j’ai choisi de vous présenter une démarche thérapeutique concrète qui repose sur une pratique basée sur les preuves (Evidence Based Practice, EBP). Autrement dit, comment un thérapeute de la voix peut-il implémenter dans sa pratique les bases de l’EBP afin d’assurer le meilleur traitement à son patient. Aussi, pour illustrer mon propos, j’ai opté pour une technique très discutée : la thérapie manuelle. Nous débattrons donc de l’efficacité thérapeutique sachant que les études de niveau 1A ou 1B sur le classement des niveaux de preuves sont rares dans le domaine de la vocologie. Ensuite, je ferai entendre une série de voix pré et post traitements. Cette étape, je l’espère, vous réconciliera avec le concept d’efficacité parfois si compliqué à démontrer. Je clôturerai la séance par une capsule vidéo illustrant des morceaux choisis de la thérapie vocale de trois patientes. Ces patientes et leur thérapeute, Catherine Jansen, ont aimablement accepté de livrer leur voix face caméra. Et enfin, si le temps nous le permet, je vous inviterai à pratiquer deux ou trois exercices vus dans la vidéo. [less ▲]

Background In recent years, the dietary pattern approach has been used extensively to describe overall eating profiles in populations. In the literature, dietary patterns are often computed by cluster analysis and principal component analysis (PCA). However, PCA does not create distinct groups of individuals with different dietary habits; moreover the choice of the clustering method and of the number of clusters in cluster analysis remains difficult. On the other hand, finite mixture models (FMM) do not have those limitations and have many other advantages. However, they have been rarely used in dietary pattern analysis. Objective The objective of this study was to use FMM to compute dietary patterns based on data from the NESCaV survey (Nutrition, Environment and Cardiovascular Health), a large population-based study carried out between 2007 and 2011among the Greater Region population (N=2298 subjects). Methods A 134-food frequency questionnaire was used to assess dietary intakes. The most appropriate parameterization of the covariance matrix and number of clusters was chosen on the basis of the Bayesian information criterion (BIC). Results Four dietary patterns were determined. A ”non-prudent” and a “prudent” patterns were characterized respectively by non-healthy and healthy food choices. A “breakfast/low alcohol” pattern was characterized by high intakes of food items usually consumed at breakfast. Finally, a “vegetables/dairy products/low carbohydrate” pattern was characterized by low intakes of carbohydrates but high intakes of vegetables, pulses, fruits, animal protein and fat mostly from dairy products. The “non-prudent” pattern was the most prevalent with 34% of the population assigned to this cluster. The “prudent”, “breakfast/low alcohol” and “vegetables/dairy products/low carbohydrate” patterns accounted respectively for 25%, 29% and 19% of the population, respectively. Women, older people and non-smokers followed the “prudent” and “breakfast/low alcohol”, whereas the “non-prudent” and “vegetables/dairy products/low carbohydrate” were more adopted by men and smokers. In addition, the “non-prudent” pattern was associated with higher cardiovascular risk. Conclusion FMM should be considered more often as they do not have limitations encountered with other methods and are not restrictive on cluster geometry. Moreover, this study highlights the need for targeted health promotion campaigns focussing on the benefits of healthy dietary patterns. [less ▲]

Agriculture is the first anthropogenic source of N2O, notably through fertilized croplands. Though, few publications have studied through continuous measurement the N2O emissions in cultivated lands. We conducted this study to assess the effect of farming practices and climate on N2O emissions from a winter wheat crop. The experiment was held in an experimental field in the loamy region in Belgium from March 2016 till crop harvest in August 2016. The N2O fluxes are measured on two nearby parcels in a winter wheat field with restitution of the residues from previous crop. For the past 8 years, one parcel was subjected to a reduced tillage (RT, 10 cm depth) and the other one to a conventional tillage (CT, 25 cm depth). On each parcel, the N2O emissions were assessed with homemade automated closed chambers. Measurement continuity and good temporal resolution (one mean flux every 4 hours) of the system allowed a fine detection and quantification of the emission peaks which usually represent the major part of N2O fluxes. In addition to gas fluxes, soil water content at various depths and surface temperature were measured continuously. Soil samples were taken regularly to determine soil pH, soil organic carbon and nitrogen pools (total, NO3- and NH4+) and study microbial diversity and nitrification/denitrification gene expression. Measurements are still in progress. First results suggested that fluxes were about 3 times larger in the RT parcel than in the CT parcel. Several emissions peaks were observed during the measurement period. The peaks occurred after fertilization events and seemed to be triggered by an elevation of soil water content. A comparison of the emissions between RT and CT and a discussion on peak temporal dynamics, focusing on their intensity, duration and starting time will be presented. [less ▲]

Recent experimental and theoretical calculations point to a complex interplay between the electron and phonon baths in a wide variety of materials [1,2]. We propose a method of coupling the Boltzmann equations for the electron and phonon baths within the relaxation time approximation which we use to calculate the thermoelectric transport coefficients. Our model for the coupled Boltzmann Equation solver includes analytic models, including ${\bf k \cdot p}$ Hamiltonians and tight-binding Hamiltonians, for both the electron and phonon energies and analytic models for the electron and phonon relaxation mechanisms. From these calculations we hope to better understand the role and interplay of electron-phonon and phonon-phonon interactions on the thermoelectric transport coefficients. [1] - Phys. Rev.

Le coefficient binomial (u,v) de deux mots u et v est défini comme le nombre de fois que v apparaît comme sous-suite du mot u. Par exemple, (abbab,ab)=4. Il étend de manière naturelle le coefficient binomial de deux entiers. Ce concept a été largement étudié depuis plus d'une trentaine d'années (cf. par exemple, Simon et Sakarovitch). Dans cet exposé, je passerai tout d'abord en revue quelques résultats combinatoires classiques pour ensuite m'attarder sur l'équivalence k-binomiale. A l'instar de l'équivalence k-abélienne étudiée par Karhumäki et al., deux mots x et y sont k-binomialement équivalents si leurs coefficients binomiaux (x,v) et (y,v) coïncident pour les mots v de longueur au plus k. En fin d'exposé, j'évoquerai l'extension récente des triangles de Pascal et de Sierpinski à ces coefficients. [less ▲]

This work addresses the problem of jointly designing and pricing intermodal freight services during a medium-term planning horizon. Given the innate hierarchy in the problem, a bilevel program is considered where, at the upper level, an intermodal service provider seeks to maximize his profit through selecting the frequencies of his services and their associated prices, while at the lower level, target shipper firms choose to send their demands among the offered intermodal itineraries and the always available trucking competition.

La décentralisation politique, poussée à l'extrême dans le cadre du fédéralisme, amène souvent une complexification de la mise en œuvre des mécanismes de démocratie directe (référendum, consultation populaire) car elle implique la participation des citoyens qui relèvent d’entités subétatiques différentes. Or, dans un contexte parfois multinational et multi-identitaire, la décentralisation poussée – fédéralisme, régionalisme – rentre bien souvent en contradiction avec la dynamique majoritaire pure et simple. La recherche entend s'intéresser, par le droit comparé, à la prise en compte des phénomènes régionaux dans le recours aux instruments référendaires. [less ▲]

Calculations of the vibrational properties of the transition-metal dichalcoginides depend critically on the lattice parameters, symmetries of the underlying system, and the non-local dispersive interaction. Here we present phonon band structure calculations, dielectric tensors, elastic tensors, and Born Effective Charges for the transition-metal dichalcogenides $MoS_2$, $MoSe_2$, $MoTe_2$, $WS_2$, $WSe_2$, $NbS_2$, and $NbSe_2$. We systematically investigate the role of the long-range $e^⁻$-$e^⁻$ interaction, spin-orbit coupling, and pseudo-potential approximation, and highlight their importance on the TMD structural and vibrational properties. We find that the phonon spectrum, calculated with the help of a Grimme's D3 non-local Van der Waals interaction depends strongly on the accuracy of the lattice parameters and slightly on the addition of the non-local Van der Waals interaction in the phonon frequency itself. We also find that the sign of the Born Effective Charges on each atom in the Hexagonal TMDs are the opposite of similarly structured compounds. We explore reasons as to why this occurs. Additionally, our calculation of the dielectric tensor and elastic tensor allow us to describe the mechanical properties of the system which are necessary to know for future device applications.

Gostaria, nesta palestra, de referir-me à maneira como se foram tecendo, no discurso do saber, os laços entre cinema e literatura, propondo certas pistas de reflexão a fim de desatar e reatar esses laços. Para tanto, pode ser tomada, como ponto de partida, uma resposta dada pela escritora e cineasta Marguerite Duras durante uma entrevista na televisão em 1966: "Em geral, sou contra a adaptação do romance para o cinema, principalmente dos romances clássicos. (...) Imaginemos um jovem que nunca leu Moby Dick e que o leia depois de ter visto o filme. Para ele, o filme será um estorvo, sua relação com a narrativa será forçosamente impura, desde o início. É por isso que sou contra a adaptação das obras-primas para o cinema. Ela destrói, afasta, corrompe o fenômeno da leitura, que é um fenômeno importantíssimo, quando não o mais importante". [less ▲]

This paper presents different extensions of the classical GTN damage model implemented in a finite element code. The goal of this study is to assess these extensions for the numerical prediction of failure of a DC01 steel sheet during a single point incremental forming process, after a proper identification of the material parameters. It is shown that the prediction of failure appears too early compared to experimental results. Though, the use of the Thomason criterion permitted to delay the onset of coalescence and consequently the final failure. [less ▲]
