Abstract

Ce que la mort a de monumental, d’inattendu et de collectif, tel est le sujet de cet ouvrage. Il aborde les morts collectives à travers un regard sociologique, la question centrale étant : la mort d’un collectif d’hommes, outre les traitements habituels, ne suscite-t-elle pas des réactions et pratiques spécifiques en lien avec le caractère collectif de ces morts ? De ce point de vue, cette mort serait collective parce qu’elle génère un traitement original différent des décès “ ordinaires ”. C...

Abstract

Aux yeux du monde, le Nicaragua échappe rarement à son image de petit pays pauvre de l'isthme centraméricain, destiné à ne faire la « Une » des journaux qu'en cas de révolution ou de catastrophe naturelle, comme l'a montré le passage du cyclone Mitch en octobre 1998. Pourtant, son histoire héroïque et tragique, mais aussi la force et la richesse de ses courants littéraires, font que l'ancienne « terre des lacs et des volcans » occupe une place à part dans l'imaginaire des Européens. C'est po...

Abstract

It is an unusual book in many respects. It is a specific study based on original and in most cases unedited sources, but it can also be read as a general introduction. It crosses boundaries between different fields of learning and traditionally accepted time periods of history. Even if it is essentially a book on medieval man, it stretches far beyond the middle ages as conventionally understood. The final chapter traces the slow disappearance of the medieval mentality until the early nineteenth century.

Abstract

Minas de Riotinto, 4 février 1888 : des milliers de mineurs et d’habitants des villages alentour manifestent contre les calcinations de pyrites à l’air libre pratiquées par la Rio Tinto Company, dont les fumées toxiques affectent gravement la santé publique, l’agriculture, l’environnement. Placée au milieu d’une foule pacifique, l’armée tire sans sommation, faisant près de 200 morts, bilan travesti par les autorités, sans équivalent dans l’Europe du temps. À partir de centaines de documents d’archives inédits, cet ouvrage inscrit le drame de « el año de los tiros » dans une décennie de luttes locales tout en décryptant les stratégies et responsabilités des différents pouvoirs, compagnie minière, politiques, experts. Le conflit et le massacre conduisent à une réflexion sur le fonctionnement même du régime de la Restauration et, au-delà de l’Espagne, sur les comportements des populations et de l’ensemble des acteurs devant une catastrophe environnementale.

Abstract

Stochastic processes have wide relevance in mathematics both for theoretical aspects and for their numerous real-world applications in various domains. They represent a very active research field which is attracting the growing interest of scientists from a range of disciplines.This Special Issue aims to present a collection of current contributions concerning various topics related to stochastic processes and their applications. In particular, the focus here is on applications of stochastic processes as models of dynamic phenomena in research areas certain to be of interest, such as economics, statistical physics, queuing theory, biology, theoretical neurobiology, and reliability theory. Various contributions dealing with theoretical issues on stochastic processes are also included.
