Internationally recognised researchers look at developing trends in combinatorics with applications in the study of words and in symbolic dynamics. They explain the important concepts, providing a clear exposition of some recent results, and emphasise the emerging connections between these different fields. Topics include combinatorics on words, pattern avoidance, graph theory, tilings and theory of computation, multidimensional subshifts, discrete dynamical systems, ergodic theory, numeration systems, dynamical arithmetics, automata theory and synchronised words, analytic combinatorics, continued fractions and probabilistic models. Each topic is presented in a way that links it to the main themes, but then they are also extended to repetitions in words, similarity relations, cellular automata, friezes and Dynkin diagrams. The book will appeal to graduate students, research mathematicians and computer scientists working in combinatorics, theory of computation, number theory, symbolic dynamics, tilings and stringology. It will also interest biologists using text algorithms. [less ▲]

Dans cette proposition d'article, il sera question de mettre en avant l’originalité et la pertinence de l’approche de Cuesta en tant que lieu de recherche non-institutionnalisé, à partir d’une expérimentation actuellement menée sur le territoire rennais. Cuesta est une structure coopérative récemment formée par une urbaniste et une productrice, et dont l'objectif est de faire intervenir les processus artistiques en amont des projets d'aménagement, pour leur permettre d'impacter sur ceux-ci. Cet article proposera alors une « relecture » des intentions de Cuesta à partir de la théorie politique du philosophe américain, John Dewey, afin de voir comment considérer ce type de travail comme la mise en place de dispositifs d'enquête visant à reconstruire un cadre spécifique d'expérience pour qu'un public puisse s'auto-constituer autour de problématiques situées. De ce croisement entre théorie et pratique, le but sera d'interroger les logiques de constitution du laboratoire au regard de cette approche innovante considérée comme nouveau type de recherche territoriale.

Comment observer le monde en transformation ; comment représenter et se représenter le monde toujours déjà pris dans sa transformation ? Il ne s'agira pas ici de répondre à ces questions, mais de travailler avec elles. Pas de solution inéluctable ni d'annonce de savoirs inédits, juste une déclinaison de ces questions à travers différents champs et pratiques de pensées. Si ces questions de représentation se sont déjà engagées dans le domaine des savoirs cartographiques, il y a à présent lieu de forcer pour d'autres leur traduction, d'abord artistique et ensuite, peut-être, architecturale.

One of the questions raised by the meeting of these two practices is about the nature of this interaction soccer-advertising. When scrutinizes closely, one realizes that advertising discourse that unfolds on the football field seems to strive to incorporate into its narrative codes of this discipline, it tries to reshape at will to fulfill its own pragmatic goals, which are registered in an argumentative persuasive Contract type opposite to those of football, which basically works based on a dichotomous rhetoric and diagram of the test. This can be seen especially through the exploitation by advertisers of functional units of the footballing universe, such players, the ball, the view of the stadium, etc., which they associate with their products. Our work intend to identify and describe the semiotic structures through which football-advertising encounter takes place, so to realize this duplication. We focus on football stadiums. [less ▲]

Previously, long-term effects on body weight and reproductive performance have been demonstrated in the chicken model of prenatal protein undernutrition by albumen removal. Introduction of such persistent alterations in phenotype suggests stable changes in gene expression. Therefore, a genomewide screening of the hepatic transcriptome by RNA-Seq was performed in adult hens. The albumendeprived hens were created by partial removal of the albumen from eggs and replacement with saline early during embryonic development. Results were compared to sham-manipulated hens and non-manipulated hens. Grouping of the differentially expressed (DE) genes according to biological functions revealed the involvement of processes such as 'embryonic and organismal development' and 'reproductive system development and function'. Molecular pathways that were altered were 'amino acid metabolism', 'carbohydrate metabolism' and 'protein synthesis'. Three key central genes interacting with many DE genes were identified: UBC, NR3C1, and ELAVL1. The DNA methylation of 9 DE genes and 3 key central genes was examined by MeDIP-qPCR. The DNA methylation of a fragment (UBC-3) of the UBC gene was increased in the albumen-deprived hens compared to the nonmanipulated hens. In conclusion, these results demonstrated that prenatal protein undernutrition by albumen removal leads to long-term alterations of the hepatic transcriptome in the chicken. [less ▲]

Summary: The aim of this experiment was to investigate the effect of n-3 fatty acid (FA) supplemented diets on breeder performance, productivity and egg quality. Breeders (n = 480) were fed the supplemented diet from 18 weeks onwards; the inclusion level of n-3 FA was increased from 1.5% to 3.0% from 34 weeks of age onwards until 48 weeks of age. Ross-308 broiler breeders (n = 480) were fed one of four different diets: a basal diet rich in n-6 FA (control diet) or one of three diets rich in n-3 FA. For the n-3 FA diets, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5 n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6 n-3) were fed to the broiler breeders at different ratios formulated to obtain EPA/DHA ratios of 1/1, 1/2 or 2/1. Differences in performance, reproduction and egg quality parameters due to n-3 supplementation were noted more for the 1.5% followed by the 3.0% fed broilers than their 1.5% supplemented counterparts. Egg weight (p < 0.001) and egg mass (p = 0.003) were significantly lower and feed conversion (p = 0.008) significantly higher for the n-3 FA (at 3.0% inclusion level) fed broilers compared to the control group. For the EPA- and DHA-fed breeders, a higher proportional abdominal fat percentage (p = 0.025) and proportional albumen weight (%) (p = 0.041) were found respectively. Dietary treatments did not affect reproduction. It can be concluded that the results of the present experiment indicate no significant differences between treatments at 1.5% inclusion levels. However, increasing this level to 3.0% is not recommended due to the rather negative effects on the measured parameters. It should be further investigated whether these adverse effects were obtained due to (i) the higher supplementation level, (ii) combining a supplementation level of 1.5% with 3% or (iii) the duration of supplementation. © 2016 Blackwell Verlag GmbH.

Les migrations font aujourd’hui partie du quotidien de toutes les grandes métropoles. Par les mouvements qu’elles impriment, elles rapprochent des territoires éloignés et finissent par former des espaces sociaux transnationaux connectant pays d’origine et de destination. Les villes post-migratoires sont à bien des égards des lieux de connexion et d’expérimentation. Elles sont le lieu où se tissent des liens complexes entre acteurs et territoires en apparence éloignés. Les pratiques sociales liées à la mobilité humaine s’inscrivent dans la ville, la modifient et façonnent les contours d’une globalisation par le bas. Cet ouvrage rassemble une série de contributions scientifiques originales qui visent à mieux comprendre comment les migrations internationales transforment tant les sociétés d’origine au Sud que les sociétés d’arrivée au Nord. Les différentes recherches présentées ici invitent à se prémunir contre une idée reçue : celle selon laquelle le contact interculturel que produisent la rencontre et la coexistence de populations migrantes et non-migrantes se jouerait uniformément sur le mode de la conflictualité et du rejet. A bien des égards, il se joue aussi sur le mode de la création et du partage, du rapprochement et de l’éloignement. C’est précisément l’une des originalités de cette publication que de considérer les migrants comme des acteurs inventifs et créatifs. En ouvrant une perspective large sur les migrations, le transnationalisme et les identités, l’ouvrage apporte un regard original et ouvre la voie à une meilleure compréhension de ce phénomène contemporain qu’est la construction d’une urbanité transnationale, mobile et diverse.

L'évaluation permet aux parties prenantes – parlementaires, administration, partenaires ou simples citoyens – de se forger un jugement sur l'action des pouvoirs publics dont la complexité tend à rendre la gestion publique de plus en plus opaque. Elle consiste à mesurer les effets propres d'une politique : l’action des pouvoirs publics a-t-elle ou non contribué à atteindre l’objectif fixé, en tout ou partie ? À quel prix ? Des méthodologies ont été développées et expérimentées par des chercheurs spécialisés et la mobilisation de ces méthodes scientifiquement validées permet de professionnaliser et de préciser l’évaluation. Quand une évaluation est menée de façon pluraliste, transparente et reproductible, la discussion publique de ses résultats ne peut qu'améliorer le fonctionnement de notre système démocratique.

Bentonite-based materials have been studied as potential barriers for the geological disposal of radioactive waste. In this context, the hydro-mechanical behaviour of the engineered barrier is first characterized by free swelling conditions (as a consequence of the progressive filling of technological gaps) followed by constant volume conditions. This paper presents an experimental study conducted in order to characterize the water retention behaviour of a compacted MX-80 bentonite/sand mixture. The water retention properties upon wetting were investigated under both free swelling and constant volume conditions. In the high suction range, the water content was not influenced by the imposed volume constraints. On the contrary, swelling significantly affected the water retention behaviour at low suctions, and the quantity of water stored was higher under free swelling conditions than it was under prevented swelling. In this case, competing effects between bentonite swelling and water uptake did not lead to an increase of the degree of saturation upon wetting, as it was observed for samples wetted under constant volume conditions. The influence of the very strong hydro-mechanical coupling is further discussed. [less ▲]
