Grâce à l’étude des matériaux parfois insolites du droit constitutionnel luxembourgeois, droit peu connu en-dehors des frontières de cet État, cet article invite à renouveler l’analyse scientifique de deux concepts-clés du droit constitutionnel : celui de dissolution du parlement et de coutume constitutionnelle. Suite à l’allégation, en 2013, par le Conseil d’État luxembourgeois, de l’existence d’une « coutume constitutionnelle » relative à la dissolution, la présente étude s’interroge non seulement sur le sens possible de cette formule ambiguë (en distinguant entre un sens fort et un sens faible de « coutume constitutionnelle »), mais aussi — ce qui est plus rarement fait — sur le fondement normatif qui puisse autoriser un acteur juridique à émettre une telle allégation. La recherche d’une norme « supérieure », fondant la coutume, explore quatre perspectives, parmi lesquelles il y a lieu de souligner le concept de « rule of recognition » défini par Hart. La controverse de 2013 a également mis en exergue le caractère faussement évident du concept de « dissolution ». Ses angles morts et incertitudes se révèlent une fois que l’on essaie de l’appliquer à la pratique, ici à la pratique historique du Luxembourg. Ainsi, une « dissolution de plein droit » est-elle, au sens strict du terme, une dissolution ? En quoi celle-ci se distingue-t-elle de la fin usuelle des mandats qu’est l’échéance du terme ? La cessation des mandats parlementaires peut-elle être due à deux causes juridiques : dissolution et échéance ? La distinction entre terme précis et terme imprécis, connue en droit privé, est-elle également opératoire en droit constitutionnel ? Est dégagée ainsi, au fil de l’analyse des cas originaux observables dans l’histoire luxembourgeoise, une vision théorique plus fine des divers types de fin collective des mandats parlementaires.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is quickly and steadily gaining importance for a wide range of applications. In this paper we investigate the potential of BLE in a vehicular context. By means of experiments, we first evaluate the characteristics of the wireless channel, then we define a set of driving scenarios to analyze how BLE is affected by varying speed, distance and traffic conditions. We that found the maximum communication range between two devices can go beyond 100 meters and that a robust connection can be achieved up to a distance of 50 meters even for varying traffic and driving conditions. Next, we present a proof-of-concept mobile application for off-the-shelf smartphones that can be used to transmit data over multiple hops. Finally we discuss the advantages and limitations of BLE for Inter-Vehicular Communications (IVC) and propose potential applications. [less ▲]

This paper proposes an H-infinity dynamic observer (DO) for a class of linear time invariant (LTI) systems in the presence of disturbances. It generalizes the existing results on the proportional observer (PO), the proportional integral observer (PIO) and the DO. The design method is derived from a new formulation of linear matrix inequality (LMI), based on the solutions of the algebraic constraints obtained from the unbiasedness conditions of the estimation error. A numerical example is provided to show the applicability and performances of our observer. [less ▲]

In order to check the reliability of man-made vibration prediction methods, vibration tests were performed on one of polders in the North-West of the Netherlands. The polder was chosen because it has a rather homogenous, thick and soft peat top layer. Here sufficient harmonical vibrations could be generated by a rather small shaker. The shaker was designed and manufactured in order to produce harmonical vibrations at the soil surface. It consists of two counter rotating electric vibrators (with rotating eccentric masses) in order to produce a vertically oscillating force. For the recordings of the vibrations, six 2D or 3D geophones were placed on the soil surface and one 2D geophone was placed on top of the shaker. The measured vibration amplitudes of the vertically oscillating shaker were compared with 1. Two different analytical methods used for the design of vibrating machine foundations, 2. The Confined Elasticity approach and 3. The Finite Element Method, for which Plaxis 2D software was used. Also the measured vibration amplitudes at the soil surface were compared with Barkan-Bornitz’s solution and Finite Element Modeling. [less ▲]

This is the second in a series of research briefs in the STAR project. STAR stands for “Sociolinguistic trajectories and repertoires: Luso-Luxo-African identifications, interactions and imaginations”, and is a three-year CORE research project funded by FNR, Luxembourg. This multi-sited project contributes to the field of sociolinguistics of globalization by investigating language and migration between the global South (Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau) and the global North (Luxembourg) from the perspective of both accomplished and aspiring migrants. In this second research brief we outline sociolinguistic aspects of migration into Luxembourg, with a focus on its Lusophone population. [less ▲]

This work reviews the monograph titled Private International Law in Commonwealth Africa. The reviewer considers the work to be very significant. The work builds on the previous works of the author (of the monograph) principally aimed at the development of private international law (PIL) in Africa. The reviewer situates the work in a larger context by interpreting the work and previous works of the author (of the monograph) as seeds for the development of a future African Union (AU) PIL. In this regard, the reviewer is able to select four major themes that justify the significance of the work in relation to a future AU PIL. These themes concern limitations on previous works on African PIL, the significance of PIL to AU economic integration, the impact of human rights and constitutional law on PIL in Africa, and a plea for cooperation as it relates to a future AU PIL. However, the reviewer exposes the scepticism as to a future AU PIL, and concludes that despite this scepticism, the work is significant enough to sow the seeds of a possible AU PIL. [less ▲]

Obesity is an ever-growing epidemic where tissue homeostasis is influenced by the differentiation of adipocytes that function in lipid metabolism, endocrine and inflammatory processes. While this differentiation process has been well-characterized in mice, limited data is available from human cells. Applying microarray expression profiling in the human SGBS pre-adipocyte cell line, we identified genes with differential expression during differentiation in combination with constraint-based modeling of metabolic pathway activity. Here we describe the experimental design and quality controls in detail for the gene expression and related results published by Galhardo et al. in Nucleic Acids Research 2014 associated with the data uploaded to NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus ().

Path planning in unstructured area while dealing with narrow spaces is an area of research which is receiving extensive interest. Many existing algorithms are able to produce safe paths but the presented concepts are either not adapted to narrow spaces or they are unable to learn from the past experience to improve repeated movements from the same agent or followed trajectories by other agents. This paper introduces an original concept based on Ant-Air phenomenon for safe path planning in a cluttered environment where narrow passages are treated. The algorithm presented is able to learn from the past experience and hence improve the already generated trajectory further by using some lessons learned from the past experience. The concept is applicable in various domains such as mobile robot path planning, manipulator trajectory generation and part movement in narrow passages in real or virtual assembly/disassembly process.

Transcription factors (TFs) represent key factors to establish a cellular phenotype. It is known that several TFs could play a role in disease, yet less is known so far how their targets overlap. We focused here on identifying the most highly induced TFs and their putative targets during human adipogenesis. Applying chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled with deep sequencing (ChIP-Seq) in the human SGBS pre-adipocyte cell line, we identified genes with binding sites in their vicinity for the three TFs studied, PPARγ, CEBPα and LXR. Here we describe the experimental design and quality controls in detail for the deep sequencing data and related results published by Galhardo et al. in Nucleic Acids Research 2014 [1] associated with the data uploaded to NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus ().
