Cet article porte sur les cours de Roland Barthes au Collège de France (1976-1980) et notamment sur un projet de séminaire sur des photographies chères à Marcel Proust et à Barthes lui-même. Cette étude vise à démontrer que le projet de ce séminaire est exemplaire des derniers choix épistémologiques de Roland Barthes : l’éloignement du structuralisme et la tentative de constitution d’une « science du singulier ». La relecture des cours et séminaires de Barthes est d’autant plus importante aujourd’hui que la sémiotique de tradition structuraliste est en train de s’interroger sur ses fondements et sur son destin et – comme Barthes l’avait très bien montré – elle a besoin de coupler l’immanentisme textuel à l’analyse des pratiques interprétatives et expérientielles.

Since the topic emerged several years ago, work on regular model checking has mostly been devoted to the verification of state reachability and safety properties. Though it was known that liveness properties could also be checked within this framework, little has been done about working out the corresponding details, and experimentally evaluating the approach. This paper addresses these issues in the context of regular model checking based on the encoding of states by finite or infinite words. It works out the exact constructions to be used in both cases, and solves the problem resulting from the fact that infinite computations of unbounded configurations might never contain the same configuration twice, thus making cycle detection problematic. Several experiments showing the applicability of the approach were successfully conducted. [less ▲]

The present work is devoted to an observational multiwavelength study of the non-thermal emission of O-type stars. The non-thermal radio emission is believed to be synchrotron radiation, therefore requiring the existence of a magnetic field as well as of a population of relativistic electrons. The physical circumstances responsible for the acceleration of electrons up to relativistic velocities are not yet completely elucidated, but such an acceleration most probably occurs through the first order Fermi mechanism in the presence of hydrodynamic shocks, also called the Diffusive Shock Acceleration (DSA) mechanism. In the context of massive stars, the shocks responsible for this acceleration process may be intrinsic to their stellar winds, or arise from the collision between stellar winds in binary systems. In addition, the existence of non-thermal emission processes such as inverse Compton scattering suggests the possibility to detect a high-energy counterpart to the non-thermal emission observed in the radio domain. The objectives of this work are to (1) study the impact of the multiplicity on the non-thermal emission, (2) investigate the issue of the non-thermal emission of massive stars in the high-energy domain, and (3) discuss the possibility to constrain physical quantities such as the magnetic field strength through the study of these non-thermal emission processes. We investigate in detail several non-thermal emitting O-type stars, namely HD168112, HD167971, Cyg OB2 #8A, Cyg OB2 #9, and HD15558. For most of these targets, high quality XMM-Newton data are used in order to study their X-ray properties. In most case, the question of the multiplicity is also addressed through optical studies performed on the basis of data obtained with ground-based telescopes. The most intensive study is carried out on the Cyg OB2 region, for which we also obtained and analysed INTEGRAL data, in order to investigate the possible relation between the massive stars in Cyg OB2 and the unidentified EGRET source 3EG J2033+4118. In addition, high quality XMM-Newton data of the close massive binary HD159176 are also studied. Even though this latter target does not belong to the category of non-thermal radio emitters, its study unexpectedly turns out to be crucial in the context of this campaign as it might be the first O + O system likely to be classified as an n! on-thermal X-ray emitter. Considering our observational results, along with results from radio observations mainly coordinated by colleagues from the Royal Observatory of Belgium, we propose a general qualitative schematic view of the non-thermal emission from massive stars. First, it seems that the multiplicity plays a crucial role in the non-thermal emission processes. Second, we have found that the simultaneous detection of non-thermal radiation in the radio and X-ray (below 10.0 keV) domains is unlikely. Non-thermal radio emitters are indeed most probably binaries with periods longer than a few weeks, whilst only close binaries with periods of at most a few days may be non-thermal emitters in the soft X-ray domain. However, such a simultaneous detection is possible if the very hard X-rays or soft gamma-rays are considered, i.e. in a domain where the thermal emission from the colliding winds does not overwhelm the non-thermal emission. Moreover, it appears that the existence of non-thermal X-ray emitters without a non-thermal radio counterpart should be envisaged. Finally, the simultaneous detection of radio and high-energy non-thermal emissions is likely to lead to an indirect method to estimate the local magnetic field strength in the colliding-wind region of massive binaries.

The cold-active phosphoglycerate kinase from the Antarctic bacterium Pseudomonas sp. TACII18 exhibits two distinct stability domains in the free, open conformation. It is shown that these stability domains do not match the structural N- and C-domains as the heat-stable domain corresponds to about 80 residues of the C-domain, including the nucleotide binding site, whereas the remaining of the protein contributes to the main heat-labile domain. This was demonstrated by spectroscopic and microcalorimetric analyses of the native enzyme, of its mutants, and of the isolated recombinant structural domains. It is proposed that the heat-stable domain provides a compact structure improving the binding affinity of the nucleotide, therefore increasing the catalytic efficiency at low temperatures. Upon substrate binding, the enzyme adopts a uniformly more stable closed conformation. Substrate-induced stability changes suggest that the free energy of ligand binding is converted into an increased conformational stability used to drive the hinge-bending motions and domain closure.

The masses of the positive parity [70, 0(+)] and [70, 2(+)] non-strange baryons are calculated in large N-c QCD by considering the most dominant operators in an 1/N-c expansion. The approach is based on the introduction of an excited core, obtained after the last particle (an excited quark) has been removed. Configuration mixing is neglected, for simplicity. Although being a sub-leading 1/Nc order, we find that the spin-spin interaction plays a dominant role in describing the data. The role of No operators is also pointed out. We show how the contribution of the linear term in Nc, of the spin-spin and of the spin-orbit terms vary with the excitation energy. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

New spectra of the PMS eclipsing binary RS Cha obtained with the GIRAFFE spectrograph at the SAAO, allowed us to measure the metallicity and new masses of both components of RS Cha. The system is therefore observationally well constrained, and modelling both stars (both with masses around 1.8 M[SUB]o[/SUB]) at the same (young) age is a severe challenge for stellar evolutionary codes. We find no evidence that our models are deficient. However accurate detection of modes and measurements of periods of the recently discovered pulsations in both components are required to constrain more severely the physical description of PMS stellar models.

The aim of our study was to evaluate the effects of thromboxane A(2) (TXA(2)) agonist, U-46619, on systemic circulatory parameters in the pigs before and after administration of a novel TXA(2) receptor antagonist and synthase inhibitor (BM-573). Twelve anesthetized pigs were randomly assigned in two groups: in Ago group (n=6), the animals received six consecutive injections of U-46619 at 30 min interval, while in Anta group (n = 6) they received an increasing dosage regimen of BM-573 10 min before each U-46619 injection. The effects of each dose of BM-573 on ex vivo platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid, collagen or ADP were also evaluated. Vascular properties such as characteristic impedance, peripheral resistance, compliance, arterial elastance were estimated using a windkessel model. Intravenous injections of 0.500 mg/ml of BM-573 and higher doses resulted in a complete inhibition of platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid. In the same conditions, BM-573 completely blocked the increase of arterial elastance, and stabilized both mean aortic blood pressure and mean systemic blood flow. In conclusion, BM-573 could therefore be a promising therapeutic approach in pathophysiological states where TXA(2) plays it main role in the increase of vascular resistance like in pathologies such as systemic hypertension.
