Abstract

Si l'effondrement des régimes communistes a permis aux peuples de l'Europe centrale-orientale de recouvrer leur identité européenne, il a aussi favorisé la résurgence d'anciens conflits ethniques et culturels propres à la région danubienne. Le problème des minorités figure en bonne place parmi les causes de la dissolution de la monarchie austro-hongroise. Il est aussi largement responsable de ses mauvais rapports inter-étatiques de la période entre les deux guerres. Les politiques adoptées e...

Abstract

Investigating the microbiome is on the frontier of science. It has the potential to resolve many issues in the realms of energy, food, human health, the environment, and biotechnology. Scientists are trying to understand, in a fundamental way, how microbes influence each other and how they organize into interaction networks. These are the keys to predicting and engineering community function and properties of the microbiome. In this regard, mathematical modeling and computational analysis play an increasing role. This book is a collection of contributions from lead scientists in the field. It provides innovative approaches and fresh perspectives for modeling environmental communities and engineered microbial consortia. Reading this book will give researchers a solid look at cutting-edge science in microbial community modeling, and at the remaining challenges such modeling poses.

Abstract

This collective work explores the themes of religious coexistence and the broaching of religious frontiers in Europe during the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries. It intends to open new areas for discussion on a European level through the bias of a dia-logue between researchers subscribing to highly different national traditions (France, Netherlands, Switzerland, and Germany). It acts through the contributions gathered here to analyse the possibilities and different methods of interfaith con-tact by using as a departure point the experience of religious differences: The ex-perience garnered by diverse social actors – ecclesiastical, magisterial, academics and nobility.

Abstract

Wir werden immer älter. Gleichzeitig gibt es zunehmend Menschen, die mit Demenz altern und nur noch versorgt werden. Klar ist: Wir brauchen Alternativen zu den eingefahrenen Umgangsweisen. Was tun wir, um Orte zu schaffen, an denen wir Leben bleiben können - statt nur Leben? Wie können wir das Lebensumfeld von Menschen mit und ohne Demenz zu "menschenwärmenden Orten" machen? In Deutschland sind zahlreiche Initiativen im Aufbruch: Engagierte Menschen aus Politik, Kultur und Kirche sind auf kreative Weise unterwegs zu Demenzfreundlichen Kommunen. Die drei Autor/innen, eng vertraut mit dem Thema, zeigen Suchbewegungen, Stolpersteine und erste Lösungsansätze auf.

Abstract

In order to re-consider the relationship between migration and society, Marc Hill and Erol Yildiz turn established certainties over and include the experience of migration. Their focus is on shared stories that show the versatility of urban community life. By doing so, they make migration the starting point of other analyses of society. Postmigrant visions serve as categories of the analysis of social situations of mobility and diversity, make ambiguities and marginalized memories that articulate social conditions visible. Contrasting ideas are put in the focus without overlooking conditions of dominance and structural barriers.

Abstract

Despite the significant decrease in bullying that has been reported in many countries during the last two decades, bullying continues to be a significant problem among young people. Given the increase of internet use among youth, researchers have started to pay attention to cyberspace, understanding that it may be a fertile ground for bullying behaviors, specifically, what is known as cyberbullying. “Family, Bullying and Cyberbullying” examines the association of several family variables with bullying in offline and online environments during childhood and adolescence. Contributors from the Americas, Canada, Asia, and Europe offer cutting-edge research on family dynamics, bystander behaviors, parents’ and educators’ perceptions, and bullying and cyberbullying prevention and intervention strategies of bullying for school and home. This book also provides an analysis of the current research on the influence of family in the electronic bullying. Research topics included in the book: 1) Parental education and bullying and cyberbullying; 2) Parental monitoring and cyberbullying; 3) Parental communication and feelings of affiliation; 4) Student and educator perspective on cyberbullying; 5) Parents’ responses to bullying; 6) Parental mediation and bystander behaviors; 7) Development of scales to measure cyberbullying and high internet risks. “Family, Bullying and Cyberbullying” is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, families, and practitioners in social education, social work, teacher education, and psychology.

Abstract

In recent years, entropy has been used as a measure of the degree of chaos in dynamical systems. Thus, it is important to study entropy in nonlinear systems. Moreover, there has been increasing interest in the last few years regarding the novel classification of nonlinear dynamical systems including two kinds of attractors: self-excited attractors and hidden attractors. The localization of self-excited attractors by applying a standard computational procedure is straightforward. In systems with hidden attractors, however, a specific computational procedure must be developed, since equilibrium points do not help in the localization of hidden attractors. Some examples of this kind of system are chaotic dynamical systems with no equilibrium points; with only stable equilibria, curves of equilibria, and surfaces of equilibria; and with non-hyperbolic equilibria. There is evidence that hidden attractors play a vital role in various fields ranging from phase-locked loops, oscillators, describing convective fluid motion, drilling systems, information theory, cryptography, and multilevel DC/DC converters. This Special Issue is a collection of the latest scientific trends on the advanced topics of dynamics, entropy, fractional order calculus, and applications in complex systems with self-excited attractors and hidden attractors.
