Since the late 1960s, The Sahel of West Africa is affected by a long-term drought and increasing human pressure on the environment leading to desertification processes. The Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), calculated from satellite imagery, is a reliable index of the vegetation status as the vegetation response to rainfall is very strong in semiarid environments. This article presents the NDVI and rainfall evolution from 1981 to 1999 in nine locations along a north-south transect from north-western Niger to north-eastern Benin. These two parameters are then statistically analysed to identify breaks in the trends within the datasets. Over the 19 years analysed, it appears that five out of the nine locations have recorded a significant increase of rainfall, while only two presented a significant increase in NDVI. This dichotomy in observed trends may highlight the on-going slow processes of environmental degradation. [less ▲]

Inelastic neutron scattering measurements on several Tl filled skutterudites (Tl0.5Co3.5Fe0.5Sb12, Tl0.8Co3FeSb12, and Tl0.8Co4Sb11Sn) all show a sharp peak in the vibrational density of states at 57 +/- 2 K, which is absent in the unfilled skutterudite CoSb3. Heat capacity measurements on Tl0.8Co4Sb11Sn as compared to CoSb3 are consistent with the presence of a localized vibrational mode associated with the "rattling" thallium atoms in this filled skutterudite compound. Both results are well described by a localized Einstein mode model with an Einstein temperature Theta(E) of 53 +/- 1 K. These data provide perhaps the clearest example of local mode behavior in a concentrated metallic system. [less ▲]

The structural and magnetic properties of the granular iron nitride-alumina composite materials: (FexN)(0.2)(Al2O3)(0.8) and (FexN)(0.6)(Al2O3)(0.4), fabricated using high-energy ball milling have been determined by using X-ray diffraction, Mossbauer spectroscopy, and magnetization measurements. The Mossbauer spectra, fit with a distribution of hyperfine fields between zero and 40 T. indicate that the weighted average field decreases with increasing milling time. The isomer shift increases with milling time because of a reduced iron 4s-electron density at the grain boundaries. Coercive fields as high as 325 and 110 Oe are obtained for (FexN)(0.2)(Al2O3)(0.8) at 5 and 300 K, respectively; the increase in the coercive field upon cooling indicates the presence of superparamagnetic particles. The coercive field increases with milling time because of the reduced particle size. The decrease in the magnetization results from the increase in both the superparamagnetic fraction and the concentration of surface defects with increased milling time. [less ▲]

Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are involved in the regulation of transcription and their inhibitors are a promising class of new anticancer drugs. We have previously reported Boc(Ac)Lys-AMC, also termed MAL, as a fluorescent substrate for HDACs. Now we present a modification of MAL called Z-MAL that is characterized by an increased rate of conversion by histone deacetylases of classes I and II and the recently discovered sirtuins (histone deacetylases class III). MAL and Z-MAL are the first nonradioactive substrates for class III enzymes. The new substrate Z-MAL allows for shorter assay times in inhibitor screening and is applicable to diverse sources of deacetylase activity even with completely different catalytic mechanisms. Interestingly, MAL shows some relative preference toward class II, indicating that subtype selectivity in small-molecule HDAC substrates might be obtained. [less ▲]

This paper reports on preliminary results of parameter identification problems in finite element non-linear analyses such as metal forming simulations. Two approaches are compared. The first one is the classic Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. The second one is a trust-region algorithm based on a quadratic model. The two algorithms are compared on two cases, one of them being an actuel experiment. [less ▲]

The antagonist activity of two yeast strains (Pichia anomala K strain and Candida oleophila O strain) against the parasitic complex responsible for crowns rot of banana has been evaluated. Their efficiency has been tested on three separated fungi : Colletotrichum musae, Fusarium moiliforme, Cephalosporium sp. and on a parasitic complex formed by the association of these three fungi. Antagonist effects have been observed both on the two first fungi and on the complex. Strain O added at 108 ufc/ml on crowns which were previously inoculated with the complex showed the highest protection (56,0 %). This protection was superior to those observed against the fungi inoculated separately. The influence of the time between the addition of the O strain (108 ufc/ml) and the inoculation of the pathogens on the level of protection has also been measured. It appeared that protection by the O strain was remarkably reinforced when the strain was added 24 hours before the complex (57,0 %). This, in comparison with the additions performed 15 minutes or 3 hours after the pathogens inoculation. The utilisation of the O strain at 108 ufc/ml has been combined with the utilisation of 50μm polybags. These latter allow the formation of a modified atmosphere during the length of the bunches transfer. The protection level was at 61,0% when both methods were combined whereas protection by the yeast alone was of 41,0%. A strict correlation between the severity of the symptoms and the protection by the yeast has been highlighted. When the severity of the disease increases, protection by the yeast decreases.

Cette recherche s’inscrit dans le prolongement de l’étude 2002 initiée par la Communauté française ayant pour objectif la constitution d’un outil centralisé permettant d’apprécier les directions que prennent les thématiques de recherches scientifiques récentes concernant le jeune en Communauté française de Belgique et de les comparer avec les thématiques abordées ailleurs au niveau européen. Une base de données bibliographiques a, pour ce faire, été développée afin de rassembler les publications scientifiques récentes (publiées à partir de 1990) relatives aux jeunes âgés de 12 à 25-30 ans, réalisées en Communauté française de Belgique et, pour comparaison, dans l'Union européenne et en particulier en Communauté flamande de Belgique. L’objectif poursuivi par la seconde partie de la recherche était d’une part, de procéder à l’actualisation des données 2002 et de présenter, d’autre part, via cet apport et via une analyse comparative des résultats 2002-2003, les grandes lignes de l’évolution des thématiques liées à la problématique de la jeunesse.

It has been known for a long time that the sets of integer vectors that are recognizable by finite-state automata are those that can be defined in an extension of Presburger arithmetic. In this paper, we address the problem of deciding whether the closure of a linear transformation preserves the recognizable nature of sets of integer vectors. We solve this problem by introducing an original extension of the concept of recognizability to sets of vectors with complex components. This generalization allows to obtain a simple necessary and sufficient condition over linear transformations, in terms of the eigenvalues of the transformation matrix. We then show that these eigenvalues do not need to be computed explicitly in order to evaluate the condition, and we give a full decision procedure based on simple integer arithmetic. The proof of this result is constructive, and can be turned into an algorithm for applying the closure of a linear transformation that satisfies the condition to a finite-state representation of a set. Finally, we show that the necessary and sufficient condition that we have obtained can straightforwardly be turned into a sufficient condition for linear transformations with linear guards. [less ▲]
