We study the cohomology of complexes of ordinary (non- decorated) graphs, introduced by M. Kontsevich. We construct spectral sequences converging to zero whose first page contains the graph cohomology. In particular, these spectral sequences may be used to show the existence of an infinite series of previously unknown and provably non-trivial cohomology classes, and put constraints on the structure of the graph cohomology as a whole.

Design of high bandwidth and reliable feeder links is central towards provisioning new services on the user link of a multibeam satellite communication (SatCom) system. Towards this, utilization of the Q/V band and an exploitation of multiple gateways (GW) as a transmit diversity measure for overcoming severe propagation effects are being considered. In this context, this contribution deals with the design of a feeder link comprising N + P GWs (N active and P redundant GWs). Towards provisioning the desired availability, a novel switching scheme is analysed and practical aspects such as prediction based switching and switching rate are discussed. Unlike most relevant works, a dynamic rain attenuation model is used to derive analytically average outage probability in the fundamental 1 + 1 gateway case. Building on this result, an analysis for the N +P scenario leading to a quantification of the end􀀀to􀀀end performance is provided. This analysis aids system sizing by illustrating the interplay between the number of active and redundant gateways on the chosen metrics : average outage and average switching rate. [less ▲]

This contribution demonstrates how child-centred research on day-care childhoods could benefit from ethnographic research strategies that include a wider and more fluid understanding of the field. This topic is discussed on the basis of the on-going research project CHILD that is currently conducted at the University of Luxembourg. The article presents the context and objectives of the study and shows how the research questions are transformed into a multi-sited research design that investigates the genesis, conditions, and everyday conduct of the care arrangements for 2-4-year-olds as an interplay of certain time-space geographies of early childhood education and care. Those time-space geographies represent a methodical and analytical construct, which helps to reveal how child-care policies, local structures and affordances, parents’ beliefs and choices, institutional orders and children’s activities interplay and assemble in the everyday making of their day-care childhoods. This particular assemblage is how we understand care arrangements. How this conception on practiced care arrangements is worked out gets demonstrated on examples from the on-going field research. According to results from three ethnographic case studies, the diverse places and spaces which come into play in the localised interconnections of day-care practices of 2-4-year-olds are highlighted and discussed with regard to the question of how such multi-sited ethnographic research strategies can help to overcome the traditional notion of children as ‘colonisers of small places’.

This article presents the research program "Theory of Motivational Action Conflicts", which addresses situations in which persons aim at achieving more than one important goal. The theory was studied with students striving simultaneously to reach academic and nonacademic goals. When students experience goal conflicts, incentives attached to options not chosen may interfere with the execution of the chosen action. Cross-sectional, longitudinal, experience-sampling, and experimental studies show that, depending on its strength, motivational interference can impair the achievements as well as the well-being of students. The article provides hints on how students can minimize goal conflicts in order to experience a better balance across developmental contexts. [less ▲]

In this paper, we report a detailed analysis of the impaired performance of a dysgraphic individual, AD, who produced similar rates of letter-level errors in written spelling, oral spelling, and typing. We found that the distribution of various letter error types displayed a distinct pattern in written spelling on the one hand and in oral spelling and typing on the other. In particular, noncontextual letter substitution errors (i.e., errors in which the erroneous letter that replaces the target letter does not occur elsewhere within the word) were virtually absent in oral spelling and typing and mainly found in written spelling. In contrast, letter deletion errors and multiple-letter errors were typically found in oral spelling and very exceptional in written spelling. Only contextual letter substitution errors (i.e., errors in which the erroneous letter that replaces the target letter is identical to a letter occurring earlier or later in the word) were found in similar proportions in the three tasks. We argue that these contrasting patterns of letter error distribution result from damage to two distinct levels of letter representation and processing within the spelling system, namely, the amodal graphemic representation held in the graphemic buffer and the letter form representation computed by subsequent writing-specific processes. Then, we examined the relationship between error and target in the letter substitution errors produced in written and oral spelling and found evidence that distinct types of letter representation are processed at each of the hypothetized levels of damage: symbolic letter representation at the graphemic level and representation of the component graphic strokes at the letter form processing level.

IL-6-type cytokines play an important role during inflammation and the immune response. In addition, they are involved in haematopoiesis, liver and neuronal regeneration, embryonic development and fertility. We found that IL-6-type cytokine stimulation of cell lines and primary human macrophages results in a different distribution of the DNA-binding competent STAT dimer species in the cytosol and nucleus as demonstrated by electrophoretic mobility shift assays. In the absence of detergent, STAT3/STAT3, STAT1/STAT3 were the predominant species in the cytoplasm while STAT3/STAT3 was predominant in the nucleus. However, in detergent containing total cellular lysates and nuclear fractions prepared with detergent containing buffers, the STAT1/STAT1 homodimer was as prominent or even more prominent than STAT3/STAT3 and STAT1/STAT3. We were interested in the cause of this discrepancy since STAT1-regulated genes have not been described to be expressed upon IL-6-type cytokine stimulation. In addition to the more transient STAT1 activation, IL-6-type cytokines such as IL-6 and OSM lead to a much less efficient STAT1 activation compared to the potent STAT1 activators IFNgamma and IFNalpha. Studies with STAT1-deficient cells revealed that STAT1 activation does not seem to be an important competitive process to STAT3 activation arguing again for a very inefficient STAT1 activation upon IL-6-type cytokine stimulation. We also describe that pY-STAT3 is much more efficiently shuttled into the nucleus than pY-STAT1. [less ▲]

On a generic metric measured space, we introduce a notion of improved concentration of measure that takes into account the parallel enlargement of k distinct sets. We show that the k-th eigenvalues of the metric Laplacian gives exponential improved concentration with k sets. On compact Riemannian manifolds, this allows us to recover estimates on the eigenvalues of the Laplace-Beltrami operator in the spirit of an inequality of Chung, Grigor’yan & Yau, Upper bounds for eigenvalues of the discrete and continuous Laplace operators.

Whereas it is often stated that aging might have more negative consequences for the evaluation of women compared to men, evidence for this assumption is mixed. We took a differentiated look at age stereotypes of men and women, assuming that the life domain in which older persons are rated moderates gender differences in age stereotypes. A sample of 298 participants aged 20-92 rated 65-year-old men and women on evaluative statements in eight different life domains. Furthermore, perceptions of gender-and domain-specific age-related changes were assessed by comparing the older targets to 45-year-old men and women, respectively. The results speak in favor of the domain specificity of evaluative asymmetries in age stereotypes for men and women, and imply that an understanding of gendered perceptions of aging requires taking into account the complexities of domain-specific views on aging.

Strain effects on epitaxial thin films of LaNiO3 grown on different single crystalline substrates are studied by Raman scattering and first-principles simulation. New Raman modes, not present in bulk or fully relaxed films, appear under both compressive and tensile strains indicating symmetry reductions. Interestingly, the Raman spectra and the underlying crystal symmetry for tensile and compressively strained films are different. Extensive mapping of LaNiO3 phase stability is addressed by simulations, showing that a variety of crystalline phases are indeed stabilized under strain. The calculated Raman frequencies reproduce the principal features of the experimental spectra, supporting the validity of the multiple strain-driven structural transitions predicted by the simulations.
