  • Lauréat du prix Raymond Devos Où est Caen " Un cimetière, c'est plein d'amour en retard. Je le sais parce que c'est là que j'ai appris que ma mère, elle aimait mon père. Même elle, ça se trouve, c'est là qu'elle l'a appris. Mon père, il était marin et il s'est noyé quand j'avais huit ans, mais on l'a jamais retrouvé. Quand on me l'a appris, j'ai rempli un verre d'eau salée et je l'ai laissé fondre au soleil. Y a pas de petite vengeance. Quand j'étais petite petite, je pleurais en fermant mes poings dans mes yeux comme pour frapper des images qu'avaient rien à faire là. Je pleure plus comme ça maintenant, mais je pleure toujours. Mon problème, c'est que quand je pense à la mer, je pleure, et que quand je pleure, je pense à la mer. Moi je crois que c'est pas un hasard si ça a le même goût. " Plaidoyer poétique et surréaliste pour les figures du fou et de l'enfant, ce petit conte philosophique fragmenté est une ode autant qu'une critique aux débordements (in)contrôlés de l'imagination.

  • Qui est donc ce mystérieux street artist qui signe D.O.W. et aide la police à combattre le crime ?

Aliocha va entraîner la jeune femme au coeur d'une terrible vengeance. De révélations en rebondissements, de manigances en trahisons, la mise en scène musclée dynamise une intrigue à suspense où l'ombre des tsars de l'ancienne Russie plane encore sur la mafia russe moderne. Le mystérieux D.O.W. devra affronter d'impitoyables adversaires pour défendre son nom, son passé et son avenir.

  • Japon, 1192. Sept ans après la bataille de Dan-no-ura qui ouvrit le bal de l'ère féodale. Sept années qu'Isabellae Ashiwara arpente les routes du pays en compagnie du fantôme de son père, gagnant sa vie à la pointe de son sabre. Sept années passées à rechercher sa soeur Siuko, disparue.
    Le temps est finalement venu pour la chasseuse de primes de se confronter à son passé et de prendre les rênes de son destin...

  • Changement de décor total pour la sabreuse rouquine ! A présent qu'une Suiko mourante a révélé à Isabellae la véritable nature de leur destin familial, l'épéiste a fait voile vers la terre originelle, l'Irlande. Ses parents celtes lui réservent un excellent accueil : en effet, quoi de mieux qu'une combattante émérite à l'heure où tous les peuples s'affrontent pour le contrôle de l'île ? Mais rien n'aurait pu la préparer à l'ennemi qui dort sous le tombeau de 500 rois...

  • La bataille entre les dieux et les mortels touche à sa fin.
    Avant l'aube, le destin de tous sera scellé sur la colline Tara.
    Dans l'ardeur du combat, Isabellae a donné sa propre vie pour la liberté des Celtes, et ses amis s'apprêtent à sacrifier la leur.
    Sang, courage et magie ancestrale sont réunis pour la plus épique et la plus décisive nuit de tous les temps !

  • Toujours à la recherche de sa soeur, Isabellae Ashiwara a pris le large, à la poursuite du bateau sur lequel est supposée se trouver Siuko. Mais, entre les dangers bien réels du présent et des fantômes de plus en plus oppressants, la jeune femme voit ses dernières certitudes s'effondrer. Il est sans doute temps que les morts le redeviennent une bonne fois pour toutes !

  • Si Isabellae a entamé son voyage pour retrouver sa soeur Suiko, cette quête est maintenant d'une urgence pressante. En effet, elle est la seule à pouvoir guérir Jinku, mordu par un des zombies invoqués en mer de Chine. Et la sabreuse rousse ne connaît qu'un moyen de financer rapidement ses recherches : chasser des primes ! Prête à écrire l'histoire en idéogrammes de sang, elle ignore encore que la réunion de famille aura lieu plus tôt que prévu...

  • Isabellae s'apprête à livrer bataille aux côtés de ses parents celtes. Face à eux, ce ne sont pas les Normands qui apparaissent, mais des monstres par centaines, tout droit sortis de terre : les dieux Formoires, ces premiers habitants de l'île d'Émeraude, qui y ont semé la terreur pendant des siècles avant d'être renvoyés d'où ils venaient. Les Celtes vont devoir choisir : esclave des Normands, vassaux des dieux ou... hommes libres.

  • Une personne peut-elle réellement mourir de solitude?  Y a-t-il un lien entre la capacité à exprimer des émotions et la maladie d'Alzheimer? Les gens ayant une certaine personnalité sont-ils prédisposés à développer un cancer? En somme, le stress et les émotions peuvent-ils contribuer à l'apparition de diverses maladies?

    S'appuyant sur des décennies de pratique de la médecine, l'auteur résume les découvertes scientifiques et explique l'effet du lien entre le corps et l'esprit sur la santé. Si la médecine occidentale obtient des résultats spectaculaires lorsqu'elle traite des problèmes comme des fractures ou des infections, elle est cependant moins efficace lorsqu'il s'agit de troubles qui ne répondent pas à des interventions rapides comme la chirurgie ou l'administration d'un médicament. Gabor Maté soutient que la maladie est souvent le moyen dont l'organisme dispose pour se rebeller contre ce que l'esprit ne reconnaît pas. Selon lui, la connaissance du mécanisme de cette relation causale est essentielle à la guérison. Il démythifie la médecine avec érudition et compassion, et nous invite tous à défendre notre propre santé!

  • Comment l'authenticité et la vraisemblance historiques sont-elles construites ? Dans cet essai, qui introduit un nouveau domaine scientifique, la sociologie du cinéma historique, l'auteur étudie les stratégies tant sociales qu'esthétiques visant à faire adhérer le public aux nécessaires anachronismes. Du péplum aux films sur l'Holocauste, de Jules et Jim à Lacombe Lucien, c'est une nouvelle analyse cinématographique qui se développe dans cet ouvrage.

  • Eager to present their cultural assets, most nations in Eastern Europe, while ruled by foreign empires, were setting up museums from the 19th century on. With many of them attaining national sovereignty in the 20th century only, the museum expansion in this region has been taking new twists and turns to date. Much of this development has relied on private initiatives, even under Communism when defiant cohorts of the suppressed civil society helped art patronage survive. By spanning two-hundred years and integrating numerous case studies, this volume examines public institutions and private collections in their historical progress and in a coherent, unified approach, as equal pillars of national heritage as much as of contemporary art.

  • In vivo explore des questions fondamentales et des moments cruciaux de l'existence humaine - l'entrée en interaction avec une culture étrangère, la décision de se sortir d'une condition de vie routinière ou malheureuse, une action généreuse posée dans un contexte quotidien ordinaire - en fonction de leur potentiel de transformation de l'existence. En recourant à des illustrations tirées de la vie réelle et d'oeuvres de fiction, Gabor Csepregi révèle le rôle primordial des sentiments personnels dans le façonnement de la vie humaine et démontre le pouvoir formateur de la spontanéité en dehors du contexte traditionnel de l'éducation formelle. Ces moments, et notamment la façon dont ils perturbent l'ordre temporel ordinaire constituent des expériences vécues de notre vitalité.
    «?Recourant à un langage clair et précis, In vivo captivera les philosophes et les intellectuels. Csepregi engage un dialogue entre diverses traditions, faisant appel aux meilleurs courants de plusieurs philosophies pour développer un point de vue unique?».

  • Approaches to the recovery of three-dimensional information on a biological object, which are often formulated or implemented initially in an intuitive way, are concisely described here based on physical models of the object and the image-formation process. Both three-dimensional electron microscopy and X-ray tomography can be captured in the same mathematical framework, leading to closely-related computational approaches, but the methodologies differ in detail and hence pose different challenges. The editors of this volume, Gabor T. Herman and Joachim Frank, are experts in the respective methodologies and present research at the forefront of biological imaging and structural biology.Computational Methods for Three-Dimensional Microscopy Reconstruction will serve as a useful resource for scholars interested in the development of computational methods for structural biology and cell biology, particularly in the area of 3D imaging and modeling.

  • The new edition of this book provides an easily accessible introduction to the statistical analysis of network data using R. It has been fully revised and can be used as a stand-alone resource in which multiple R packages are used to illustrate how to conduct a wide range of network analyses, from basic manipulation and visualization, to summary and characterization, to modeling of network data. The central package is igraph, which provides extensive capabilities for studying network graphs in R. The new edition of this book includes an overhaul to recent changes in igraph. The material in this book is organized to flow from descriptive statistical methods to topics centered on modeling and inference with networks, with the latter separated into two sub-areas, corresponding first to the modeling and inference of networks themselves, and then, to processes on networks. The book begins by covering tools for the manipulation of network data. Next, it addresses visualization and characterization of networks. The book then examines mathematical and statistical network modeling. This is followed by a special case of network modeling wherein the network topology must be inferred. Network processes, both static and dynamic are addressed in the subsequent chapters. The book concludes by featuring chapters on network flows, dynamic networks, and networked experiments. Statistical Analysis of Network Data with R, 2nd Ed. has been written at a level aimed at graduate students and researchers in quantitative disciplines engaged in the statistical analysis of network data, although advanced undergraduates already comfortable with R should find the book fairly accessible as well.

  • This book collects research papers on the philosophical foundations of probability, causality, spacetime and quantum theory. The papers are related to talks presented in six subsequent workshops organized by The Budapest-Kraków Research Group on Probability, Causality and Determinism. Coverage consists of three parts. Part I focuses on the notion of probability from a general philosophical and formal epistemological perspective. Part II applies probabilistic considerations to address causal questions in the foundations of quantum mechanics. Part III investigates the question of indeterminism in spacetime theories. It also explores some related questions, such as decidability and observation. The contributing authors are all philosophers of science with a strong background in mathematics or physics. They believe that paying attention to the finer formal details often helps avoiding pitfalls that exacerbate the philosophical problems that are in the center of focus of contemporary research.The papers presented here help make explicit the mathematical-structural assumptions that underlie key philosophical argumentations. This formally rigorous and conceptually precise approach will appeal to researchers and philosophers as well as mathematicians and statisticians.

  • Flood damages are increasing as a result of frequent occurrence of large floods in many parts of the world, existing and continuing encroachment of development onto flood plains and aging flood protection structures. Under such circumstances, there is an ongoing search for better ways of protecting human life, land, property and the environment by improved flood management. Many flood management measures have been practiced in various jurisdictions, including living with floods, non-structural measures (e.g., regulations, flood defence by flood forecasting and warning, evacuations, and flood insurance), and structural measures (e.g., land drainage modifications, reservoirs, dykes and polders). Such flood management is difficult in river basins controlled by a single authority, and becomes even more challenging when dealing with transboundary floods, which may originate in one country or jurisdiction and then propagate downstream to another country, or jurisdiction. Under such circumstances, the demands on communications, information and data sharing, compatibility of forecasting methodologies, and close collaboration in all aspects of flood management are particularly strong and important. These issues are addressed in the edited proceedings of this NATO Advanced Research Workshop.

  • ?This book summarizes the results of research the authors have pursued in the past years on the problem of implementing Bell's notion of local causality in local physical theories and relating it to other important concepts and principles in the foundations of physics such as the Common Cause Principle, Bell's inequalities, the EPR (Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen) scenario, and various other locality and causality concepts. The book is intended for philosophers of science with an interest in the formal background of sciences, philosophers of physics and physicists working in foundation of physics.

  • Every cataract surgeon is afraid of complications, but while complications cannot be entirely avoided, it is possible to learn to master them. This practical handbook clearly explains how to manage the various complications that may arise during cataract surgery, from a subluxated intraocular lens to a dropped nucleus. It provides the surgeon with clear instructions on how best to proceed in the manner of a cookbook, by first describing the ingredients (equipment) and preparation (planning) and then providing step by step descriptions of technique with the aid of numerous helpful color illustrations and several accompanying surgical videos. Surgical pearls and tips and tricks are highlighted. Using this book, the reader will become a better and more complete cataract surgeon, well equipped to cope with the full range of potential complications.

  • The present volume is a collection of survey papers in the ?elds given in the title. They summarize the latest developments in their respective areas. More than half of the papers belong to search theory which lies on the borderline of mathematics and computer science, information theory and combinatorics, respectively. The volume is slightly related to the twin conferences "Search And Communication Complexity" and "Information Theory In Mathematics" held at Balatonlelle, Hungary in 2000. These conferences led us to believe that there is a need for such a collection of papers. The paper written by Martin Aigner starts with the following relatively new search problem. Given n boolean variables as input one has to ?nd one of them whose value is in majority. The goal is to minimize the number of tests needed for this where one test is to compare two input variables for equality. The paper surveys the large set of problems and results which grew out of this one. In the traditional search model an unknown element is sought in a ?nite set, based on the information that the unknown element is or is not in some (asked) subsets. A variant is when a 0,1 function is given on the underlying set, and only the values of this function at the unknown element x is sought rather than x itself. This is called the recognition problem.

  • This book covers advances made since the 2004 Springer volume "Polarized Light in Animal Vision" edited by Horvath and Varju, but also provides reviews and synopses of some areas. Part I examines polarization sensitivity across many animal taxa including vertebrates and invertebrates and details both terrestrial and aquatic life. Part II is devoted to the description of polarized light in nature and explores how the physics of light must be taken into account when understanding how polarized light is detected by the visual system. This includes underwater polarization due to scattering; polarization patterns reflected from freshwater bodies; polarization characteristics of forest canopies; normal and anomalous polarization patterns of the skies; skylight polarization transmitted through Snell's window and both linearly and circularly polarized signals produced by terrestrial and aquatic animals. This Part also examines polarized "light pollution" induced by anthropogenic factors such as reflection off asphalt surfaces, glass panes, car bodies, and other man-made structures that are now known to form ecological traps for polarotactic insects. Part III surveys some of the practical applications of polarization vision including polarization-based traps for biting insects, ground-based polarimetric cloud detectors and an historical examination of the navigational abilities of Viking seafarers using the sky polarization compass. The deterrent qualities of ungulate pelage to polarization-sensitive biting insects is also examined in this section.

  • This volume contains original research articles, survey articles and lecture notes related to the Computations with Modular Forms 2011 Summer School and Conference, held at the University of Heidelberg. A key theme of the Conference and Summer School was the interplay between theory, algorithms and experiment.The 14 papers offer readers both, instructional courses on the latest algorithms for computing modular and automorphic forms, as well as original research articles reporting on the latest developments in the field.The three Summer School lectures provide an introduction to modern algorithms together with some theoretical background for computations of and with modular forms, including computing cohomology of arithmetic groups, algebraic automorphic forms, and overconvergent modular symbols.The 11 Conference papers cover a wide range of themes related to computations with modular forms, including lattice methods for algebraic modular forms on classical groups, a generalization of the Maeda conjecture, an efficient algorithm for special values of p-adic Rankin triple product L-functions, arithmetic aspects and experimental data of Bianchi groups, a theoretical study of the real Jacobian of modular curves, results on computing weight one modular forms, and more.

  • This book gives a concise overview of the mathematical foundations of kinetics used in chemistry and systems biology. The analytical and numerical methods used to solve complex rate equations with the widely used deterministic approach will be described, with primary focus on practical aspects important in designing experimental studies and the evaluation of data. The introduction of personal computers transformed scientific attitudes in the last two decades considerably as computational power ceased to be a limiting factor. Despite this improvement, certain time-honored approximations in solving rate equations such as the pre-equilibrium or the steady-state approach are still valid and necessary as they concern the information content of measured kinetic traces. The book shows the role of these approximations in modern kinetics and will also describe some common misconceptions in this field.
