Ce recueil est une "saga poétique" évoquant un peuple premier qui voit avec tristesse et quelque peu de crainte, son monde connu peu à peu s'effacer ou se transformer avec l'irruption puis la présence d'un autre venu le dominer. Ces textes abordent les thèmes de l'incompréhension, de la domination et de la prédation. Mais surtout, ils parlent du temps, l'usure du temps et encore plus de la mort.
Philosophie, poésie, mystique : entre ces champs divers de la connaissance et de l'action, le présent ouvrage, en décrivant l'efflorescence des formes montre l'implication de l'esthétique littéraire dans la philosophie d'aujourd'hui.

Pour l'observateur occasionnel, cela ressemble à un voyage de rêve. Pour Tate O'Reilly, c'est tout sauf ça. C'est un homme en mission qui doit réparer une grave erreur, et rien ne le retiendra - certainement pas ses amis ou sa famille. Pour lui, tout se résume à une chose simple : il doit réparer ce qu'il a cassé.
Ce sur quoi il ne compte pas, c'est de rencontrer Gabriel Carillo. Gabriel est gentil, mystérieux et semble avoir pour mission de veiller à ce que leurs chemins continuent de se croiser. Mais Tate cache un très grand secret - un secret qu'il est certain que même Gabriel ne peut pas pardonner.
Le passé d'un homme doit-il déterminer son avenir ? Au milieu de villes chargées d'histoire, Tate va le découvrir.
Le numéro d'automne de TicArtToc explore la question de l'exil des artistes et plonge au coeur de trajectoires souvent forcées. L'exil peut prendre différentes formes et être vécu par chacun de façon différente. Les collaborateurs de TicArtToc, Pierre Ansay, Catherine Barnabé, Hanieh Ziaei et Jacques-Bernard Roumanes, réfléchissent sur les diverses facettes et impacts de l'exil, tantôt vu comme une expérience positive, comme une renaissance ou un nouveau départ, tantôt vu dans une conception négative, davantage comme une déchirure ou avec frustration. Comment les artistes définissent-ils l'exil, de quelle manière le vivent-ils au quotidien ? De quelle manière l'exil teinte-t-il leurs pratiques? Trouvez réponse à ces questions en lisant les portraits des artistes Yazan Charif par Fanny Guérin, Quinten Sheriff par Tessy Jean-Paul, Adriana Garcia-Cruz par Mylène de Repentigny-Corbeil et Farooq Fazeli par Héloïse Landry.

La última década del siglo debía significar para América Latina la consolidación democrática y la inserción en la nueva economía-mundo. Pero en un contexto de crisis económica y ajuste neoliberal, el proceso resultó mucho más complejo de lo esperado. Nuevos problemas y nuevos actores cuestionaron los marcos que parecían definitivos. Nuestro continente, y dentro de él los países andinos, se encuentran así en una situación difícil pero fértil en nuevas posibilidades. El presente volumen contiene una selección de las ponencias presentadas a las Primeras Jornadas de Politología: "Las formas políticas de la democracia en los países andinos" convocadas por el Instituto Francés de Estudios Andinos (IFEA). El texto se divide en cuatro secciones que abordan temas cruciales para el futuro de nuestros países: Democracia y partidos políticos; democracia y etnicidad; problemas de la transición democrática; democracia y violencia.

Wheat researchers have made unique contributions and excellent progress to the production increase over the past several decades, mainly in the less developed countries; however, there are many challenges that still lie ahead to make food more accessible than ever before in a sustainable manner and to meet the needs of a global growing population. Numerous biotic and abiotic stresses affect wheat in major production areas and its future growth will most likely come from marginal envir- ments where such stresses play even more important role. Developing countries are becoming increasingly urbanized. As urban populations grow, productive land disappears and this implies the need for more intensive cropping to keep pace. Water utilization for agriculture is also facing more competition from uses in urban areas. Focused efforts to improve wheat water-use efficiency are crucial to ensure sustainability of food production in water-constrained regions. Current crop management systems such as reduced or zero tillage, stubble retention and precision agriculture are vital to satisfy the increasing needs of food and maintain at the same time the sustainability of natural resources. The widespread adoption of conservation farming techniques requires the introduction of changes to wheat varieties in disease resistance, particularly stubble-born diseases.

Muscle contraction has been the focus of scientific investigation for more than two centuries, and major discoveries have changed the field over the years. Early in the twentieth century, Fenn (1924, 1923) showed that the total energy liberated during a contraction (heat + work) was increased when the muscle was allowed to shorten and perform work. The result implied that chemical reactions during contractions were load-dependent. The observation underlying the "Fenn effect" was taken to a greater extent when Hill (1938) published a pivotal study showing in details the relation between heat production and the amount of muscle shortening, providing investigators with the force-velocity relation for skeletal muscles. Subsequently, two papers paved the way for the current paradigm in the field of muscle contraction. Huxley and Niedergerke (1954), and Huxley and Hanson (1954) showed that the width of the A-bands did not change during muscle stretch or activation. Contraction, previously believed to be caused by shortening of muscle filaments, was associated with sliding of the thick and thin filaments. These studies were followed by the classic paper by Huxley (1957), in which he conceptualized for the first time the cross-bridge theory; filament sliding was driven by the cyclical interactions of myosin heads (cross-bridges) with actin. The original cross-bridge theory has been revised over the years but the basic features have remained mostly intact. It now influences studies performed with molecular motors responsible for tasks as diverse as muscle contraction, cell division and vesicle transport.

This book discusses the rapidly developing subject of mathematical analysis that deals primarily with stability of functional equations in generalized spaces. The fundamental problem in this subject was proposed by Stan M. Ulam in 1940 for approximate homomorphisms. The seminal work of Donald H. Hyers in 1941 and that of Themistocles M. Rassias in 1978 have provided a great deal of inspiration and guidance for mathematicians worldwide to investigate this extensive domain of research.The book presents a self-contained survey of recent and new results on topics including basic theory of random normed spaces and related spaces; stability theory for new function equations in random normed spaces via fixed point method, under both special and arbitrary t-norms; stability theory of well-known new functional equations in non-Archimedean random normed spaces; and applications in the class of fuzzy normed spaces. It contains valuable results on stability in random normed spaces, and is geared toward both graduate students and research mathematicians and engineers in a broad area of interdisciplinary research.
The integrated theory of dynamic interpretation set out here will be a surprise to advanced researchers in linguistics. It combines classical formal semantics and modern dynamic semantics without altering the fundamental paradigm. At the book's core lies a pragmatically motivated notion of a dynamic conjunction of meanings, an idea that is worked out in full formal detail. This is applied to linguistic phenomena that involve anaphora, quantification and modality. The author demonstrates that in each area of application existing data can be neatly combined with new dynamic insights, but more importantly, there is a genuine further pay-off: the work generates treatments of phenomena that were not initially intended, with functional readings of pronouns and quantifiers, `Hob-Nob' sentences, and insights into what we now call `Pierce's Puzzle'.
The outcome of a decade of work by the Amsterdam School of dynamic semantics, this volume condenses and reflects upon a vital body of research.
