[more ▼]« This document was produced under the Agrometeorological component of the “EC/FAO Programme on Information Systems to Improve Food Security Decision-Making in ENP East Area” in Armenia. The objective of the Programme in Armenia is to support government’s priorities to reduce food insecurity and poverty by improving the quality and sharing of information across institutions, and promoting evidence-based analyses and assessments. This User Manual of Crop Yield Forecasting System used in Armenia may be used as a reference document for the future calculation of yield forecasts that HYDROMET will use in the coming years.

[more ▼]This communication presents a quantitative-qualitative research conducted among 225 teachers and teaching assistants who have benefited from the education technologies training program provided by our eCampus department at IFRES (University of Liege, Belgium) since 2011. The data collected are used to a) describe and characterize the public who attended these training sessions, b) identify the types of training programs chosen by the attendees, and c) to explore the influence of those sessions on the techno-pedagogical development of teachers. That effect is manifested by a change of mental representations or by "acting out" in terms of integrating technology into teaching practices.

[more ▼]The annual variation in neustonic plastic particles and zooplankton was studied in the Bay of Calvi 23 (Corsica) between 30 August 2011 and 7 August 2012. Plastic particles were classified into three size classes, small microplastics (0.2–2 mm), large microplastics (2–5 mm) and mesoplastics (5–10 mm). 74% of the 38 samples contained plastic particles of varying composition: e.g. filaments, polystyrene, thin plastic films. An average concentration of 6.2 particles/100 m2 was observed. The highest abundance values (69 particles/100 m2) observed occurred during periods of low offshore wind conditions. These values rose in the same order of magnitude as in previous studies in the North Western Mediterranean. The relationships between the abundance values of the size classes between zooplankton and plastic particles were then examined. The ratio for the intermediate size class (2–5 mm) reached 2.73. This would suggest a potential confusion for predators regarding planktonic prey of this size class.

[more ▼]In this paper, we investigate the empirical relationship between corporate governance and information asymmetry across a range of French firms. Based on a cross-sectional analysis, our study of the empirical relationship between corporate governance and information asymmetry involved 160 companies over the years 2008-2010. Mechanisms of corporate governance include the characteristics of the board of directors. Our results seem to indicate a significant relationship between certain mechanisms of corporate governance and the information asymmetry of the French market. These mechanisms can reduce adverse selection costs, and make exchanges more transparent. These results suggest that firms with efficient corporate governance mechanisms may reduce informative asymmetry and improve transparency between investors.

[more ▼]Little is presently known about the hot (>300 K) dust component of debris disks surrounding main sequence stars, similar to the zodiacal dust cloud found in the inner solar system.While extensive surveys have been carried out from space, the majority of detections have surprisingly come from the ground, where near infrared interferometric observations have recently revealed small (∼1%) resolved excesses around a dozen nearby main sequence stars. Most of these results have come from the CHARA array “FLUOR” instrument (Mt. Wilson, CA), which has demonstrated the best sensitivity worldwide so far for this type of studies, and has carried out an initial survey of ∼40 stars. In order to further understand the origin of this “hot dust phenomenon”, we will extend this initial survey to a larger number of stars and lower excess detection limits, i.e. higher visibility accuracy providing higher contrast measurements. To this end, two major instrumental developments are underway at CHARA. The first one aims at improving FLUOR’s sensitivity to a median K-band magnitude limit of 5 (making 200 targets available). The second development is based on a method that we recently developed for accurate (better than 0.1%) null depth measurements of stars, and that can be extended to regular interferometric visibility measurements.

For a pseudo-Boolean function $f(x)$ on $\{0,1 ... [more ▼]A pseudo-Boolean function is a real-valued function$f(x)=f(x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_n)$of$n$binary variables; that is, a mapping from$\{0,1\}^n$to${\bbr}$. For a pseudo-Boolean function$f(x)$on$\{0,1\}^n$, we say that$g(x,y)$is a quadratization of$f$if$g(x,y)$is a quadratic polynomial depending on$x$and on$m$auxiliary binary variables$y_1,y_2,\ldots,y_m$such that$f(x)= \min \{ g(x,y) : y \in \{0,1\}^m \} $for all$x \in \{0,1\}^n$. By means of quadratizations, minimization of$f$is reduced to minimization (over its extended set of variables) of the quadratic function$g(x,y)$. This is of some practical interest because minimization of quadratic functions has been thoroughly studied for the last few decades, and much progress has been made in solving such problems exactly or heuristically. A related paper initiated a systematic study of the minimum number of auxiliary$y$-variables required in a quadratization of an arbitrary function$f$(a natural question, since the complexity of minimizing the quadratic function$g(x,y)$depends, among other factors, on the number of binary variables). In this paper, we determine more precisely the number of auxiliary variables required by quadratizations of \emph{symmetric} pseudo-Boolean functions$f(x)$, those functions whose value depends only on the Hamming weight of the input$x\$ (the number of variables equal to 1).

[more ▼]CoRoT and Kepler observations of red giants reveal rich spectra of non-radial solar-like oscillations allowing to probe their internal structure. An important question comes from the observation of mixed modes : When during the star’s ascension on the RGB are mixed-modes more likely to be detectable ? We follow the evolution of a star on the RGB and investigate the eﬀect of its ascension on theoretical power spectrum. Equilibrium models (computed with the code ATON) represent four diﬀerent stages of a star on the RGB. The mass of the star (1.5M") is in the typical mass range of stars observed by CoRoT and Kepler. We used a non-radial non-adiabatic code to compute the theoretical solar-like oscillations of these models. An important output of these calculations is the theoretical lifetimes of the modes. Then we computed the oscillation amplitudes through a stochastic excitation model. These computations allow us to draw theoretical power spectrum and discuss the possibility to observe mixed-modes at diﬀerent evolutionary stages on the RGB. We found that structure modiﬁcations in a star ascending the RGB have an important impact on theoretical power spectrum of solar-like oscillations. Eﬃciencies of trapping and lifetimes of mixed modes are indeed strongly aﬀected by this evolution. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 8 (2 ULg) Des prix littéraires.
