We analyze the Schelling model of segregation in which a society of n individuals live in a ring. Each individual is one of two races and is only satisfied with his location so long as at least half his 2w nearest neighbors are of the same race as him. In the dynamics, randomly-chosen unhappy individuals successively swap locations. We consider the average(More)
A harmonized sampling approach in combination with spatial modelling is required to update current knowledge of fasciolosis in dairy cattle in Europe. Within the scope of the EU project GLOWORM, samples from 3,359 randomly selected farms in 849 municipalities in Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Poland and Sweden were collected and their infection status assessed(More)
The Plynlimon headwater catchments in mid-Wales have been a landmark study of water resources in the UK uplands for over 30 years. The main physical features of the catchments have been digitised as the basis for linking new model developments and process understanding. Examples are given of how the main physical attributes are related to land management,(More)
In this paper, I focus on Hans-Jörg Rheinberger's notion of "historiality", which provides a specific epistemology of time that abandons ideas of 'origin', 'influence or of history as a continuous and cumulative development. It is used here to frame a brief historical analysis of the coexistence and interference of different concepts of cloning and related(More)
Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is an emerging medical imaging modality which is based on the non-linear response of magnetic nanoparticles to an applied magnetic field. It is an important feature of MPI that even fast dynamic processes can be captured for 3D volumes. The high temporal resolution in turn leads to large amounts of data which have to be(More)
We study the medium-induced energy loss −∆E0(Lp) suffered by a heavy quark produced at initial time in a quark-gluon plasma, and escaping the plasma after travelling the distance Lp. The heavy quark is treated classically, and within the same framework −∆E0(Lp) consistently includes: the loss from standard collisional processes, initial bremsstrahlung due(More)
Optical grade plastics are increasingly being used as magnifiers in Ophthalmic Optical Instrumentation applications. In its effort to develop indigenously aspheric technology-based Ophthalmic Optical aids, the Aspheric Group at CSIO has studied the machining and surface characteristics of optical grade plastics. Generally, PMMA and polycarbonate considered(More)
