Abstract

L'espace méditerranéen n'a pas seulement été « inventé » depuis les trois derniers siècles : il a été aussi construit - ou reconstruit - dans le cadre de mutations qui ont affecté le politique, l'économie, le social et le culturel et dans lesquelles les élites ont toujours joué un rôle moteur. Cet ouvrage poursuit deux objectifs. Le premier consiste à prendre en considération l'ensemble du processus avec ses différences de formes et de niveaux. Le deuxième porte sur les stratégies des acteur...

Abstract

This book allows the reader to understand the fundamentals of polarization phenomena in a general spin system, showing the polarizations to be indispensable information source of spin-dependent interactions. Particularly, the book describes polarization phenomena in nuclear scattering and reactions in detail, and explains how they provide information concerning spin-dependent interactions between the related particles. The concepts of polarization observables are explained, explicitly in the scattering of protons, deuterons and 7Li nuclei. In looking at deuteron and 7Li scattering, interactions induced by the virtual excitation of projectiles are examined in detail. Resonance reactions are investigated, focusing attention on the polarization of observables, which suggests that polarization phenomena can be used to determine the spin parity of the resonance. It is noted that in few-nucleon systems, the discrepancy between the values of polarization observables based on theoretical models and the corresponding values obtained through experimental data, is an important problem to be solved in the future. Solving this problem should provide new knowledge concerning the nuclear forces between nucleons.The author has chosen open-access publishing for this book to allow any interested person to study this branch of nuclear physics.

Abstract

This book seeks to bridge the gap between leading edge scholarship about the nature of the physical, tangible Universe and the nature of the life process on Earth on the one hand, and on the other hand challenges facing human society as to the current revolution in energy sources, national and international levels of political and economic organization, and humanity`s impacts upon the global ecosystem which have given rise to the depiction of a new era in earthlife termed the anthropocene.The author`s public career included responsibilities for economic policy formulation and implementation at the United States Department of Justice, the United States Agency for International Development, and a White House Office of Consumer Affairs. This provided an elevated overview of many current economic and political issues.These responsibilities stimulated a multi-decade exploration of leading academics` insights into the relational structuring of the Universe, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, complexity in the universe, and the structure of the life process. This book applies such fundamental insights to the question whether humanity will succeed or fail in its ambitious but uncertain quest.

Abstract

Die Studie arbeitet den musterhaften Sprachgebrauch in wissenschaftlichen Texten heraus und beschreibt auf der Basis einer datengeleiteten Korpusanalyse den Wissenschaftsstil auf formaler und pragmatischer Ebene. Mit der theoretischen Einbettung in mehrere linguistische Teildisziplinen leistet das Buch einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Textsortenforschung, zur Normendiskussion und zur Schreibforschung.

Abstract

Society is never just a localized aggregate of people but exists by virtue of its members’ narrative and conceptual awareness of other times and places. In Jukka Siikala’s work this idea evolves into a broad ethnographic and theoretical interest in worlds beyond the horizon, in the double sense of “past” and “abroad.” This book is a tribute to Jukka’s contributions to anthropology by his colleagues and students and marks his 60th birthday in January 2007. By exploring the near, distant, inward and outward horizons towards which societies project their reality, the authors aim at developing a new, productive language for addressing culture as a way of experiencing and engaging the world.

Abstract

In the last two decades, the reliability of small electronic devices used in automotive or consumer electronics gained researchers attention. Thus, there is the need to understand the fatigue properties and damage mechanisms of thin films. In this thesis a novel high-throughput testing method for thin films on Si substrate is presented. The specialty of this method is to test one sample at different strain amplitudes at the same time and measure an entire lifetime curve with only one experiment.

Abstract

Bringing together sign language linguistics and the semantics-pragmatics interface, this book focuses on the use of signing space in Catalan Sign Language (LSC). On the basis of small-scale corpus data, it provides an exhaustive description of referential devices dependent on space. The book provides insight into the study of meaning in the visual-spatial modality and into our understanding of the discourse behavior of spatial locations.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage étudie la différenciation sociale considérée comme un processus économique, politique, culturel et normatif qui fonde les catégories sociales liées au sexe, à l’ethnicité, à la « race », à l’âge et à la région. Le premier chapitre, signé par Danielle Juteau, constitue une introduction à la différenciation sociale. Les autres chapitres examinent successivement : la différence sexuelle et le monde du travail : emplois standard/non standard ; la différenciation en fonction de l’âge dans la population active ; les minorités visibles et la diversité « raciale » ; les Autochtones et les politiques sociales ; la différenciation sociale selon les régions, urbaines ou rurales ; la politique sociale et les droits de la citoyenneté. Ce livre, signé par des spécialistes de la question, invite les lecteurs à une prise de conscience des facteurs de différenciation sociale et de leurs effets dans la vie quotidienne des individus et sur l’avenir des collectivités.

Abstract

Pour André Burguière, « les idées politiques ne flottent pas au-dessus des corps ». C’est dans cette ligne que s’est construit ce volume d’hommage à l’historien. Suivant une démarche qui est celle de l’École des Annales, André Burguière a exploré les diverses dimensions du double lien, de parenté et national, sur qui se fonde la cohésion des sociétés d’Ancien Régime, peut-être aussi celle des sociétés contemporaines. La parenté apparaît alors comme une situation héritée ou comme un choix volontaire, et ses formes répondent à des constructions de l’esprit et à des élans affectifs autant qu’à des contraintes et des conjonctures. Les multiples facettes du mariage ou de la famille ici analysées témoignent de la faculté d’adaptation des communautés humaines. Les connivences entre l’imaginaire de la parenté et celui de la nation peuvent alors être interrogées à partir des pratiques de la citoyenneté et de la société politique, C’est donc une réflexion sur les corps physiques et les groupements familiaux, les contraintes qui pèsent sur eux et les conduites qui tentent de conjurer leurs diktats ou leurs menaces ; sur le genre, catégorie nouvelle apte à penser l’ordre social et ses partages ; sur le lien social, l’État, les pouvoirs, qui anime cet essai collectif en fidélité aux travaux d’André Burguière.
