With this article we want to illustrate how the central publications of the European Union legitimate a role of Career Guidance Services (CGS) that help in establishing a desired form of social order. Using the Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse, we reconstructed four typical metaphorical conceptualisations of CGS that go along with desirable and taken-for-granted subject positions. The results reveal the assigned active role of CGS in establishing a specific vision of and in transforming the European society. We conclude by outlining the ways in which critique is expressed within the discourse and by highlighting the inherent ambivalences of these practices of critique. [less ▲]

MOTIVATION: Flux balance analysis, and its variants, are widely used methods for predicting steady-state reaction rates in biochemical reaction networks. The exploration of high dimensional networks with such methods is currently hampered by software performance limitations. RESULTS: DistributedFBA.jl is a high-level, high-performance, open-source implementation of flux balance analysis in Julia. It is tailored to solve multiple flux balance analyses on a subset or all the reactions of large and huge-scale networks, on any number of threads or nodes. AVAILABILITY: The code is freely available on github.com/opencobra/COBRA.jl. The documentation can be found at opencobra.github.io/COBRA.jl. [less ▲]

This paper investigates a self-organized critical approach for dynamically load-balancing computational workloads. The proposed model is based on the Bak-Tang-Wiesenfeld sandpile: a cellular automaton that works in a critical regime at the edge of chaos. In analogy to grains of sand, tasks arrive, pile up and slip through the different processing elements or sites of the system. When a pile exceeds a certain threshold, it collapses and initiates an avalanche of migrating tasks, i.e. producing load-balancing. We show that the frequency of such avalanches is in power-law relation with their sizes, a scale-invariant fingerprint of self-organized criticality that emerges without any tuning of parameters. Such an emergent pattern has organic properties such as the self-organization of tasks into resources or the self-optimization of the computing performance. The conducted experimentation also reveals that the system is in balanced (i.e. not driving to overloaded or underutilized resources) as long as the arrival rate of tasks equals the processing power of the system. Taking advantage of this fact, we hypothesize that the processing elements can be turned on and off depending on the state of the workload as to maximize the utilization of resources. An interesting side-effect is that the overall energy consumption of the system is minimized without compromising the quality of service. [less ▲]

Strain gradient plasticity theories are being widely used for fracture assessment, as they provide a richer description of crack tip fields by incorporating the influence of geometrically necessary dislocations. Characterizing the behavior at the small scales involved in crack tip deformation requires, however, the use of a very refined mesh within microns to the crack. In this work a novel and efficient gradient-enhanced numerical framework is developed by means of the extended finite element method (X-FEM). A mechanism-based gradient plasticity model is employed and the approximation of the displacement field is enriched with the stress singularity of the gradient-dominated solution. Results reveal that the proposed numerical methodology largely outperforms the standard finite element approach. The present work could have important implications on the use of microstructurally-motivated models in large scale applications. The non-linear X-FEM code developed in MATLAB can be downloaded from www.empaneda.com/codes. [less ▲]
