We revisit the problem of obtaining uniform gradient estimates for Dirichlet and Neumann heat semigroups on Riemannian manifolds with boundary. As applications, we obtain isoperimetric inequalities, using Ledoux's argument, and uniform quantitative gradient estimates, firstly for bounded C^2 functions with boundary conditions and then for the unit spectral projection operators of Dirichlet and Neumann Laplacians.

We study stability properties of a proximal point algorithm for solving the inclusion 0∈T(x) when T is a set-valued mapping that is not necessarily monotone. More precisely we show that the convergence of our algorithm is uniform, in the sense that it is stable under small perturbations whenever the set-valued mapping T is metrically regular at a given solution. We present also an inexact proximal point method for strongly metrically subregular mappings and show that it is super-linearly convergent to a solution to the inclusion 0∈T(x). [less ▲]

We present an approach for computing long-range van der Waals (vdW) interactions between complex molecular systems and arbitrarily shaped macroscopic bodies, melding atomistic treatments of electronic fluctuations based on density functional theory in the former with continuum descriptions of strongly shape dependent electromagnetic fields in the latter, thus capturing many-body and multiple scattering effects to all orders. Such a theory is especially important when considering vdW interactions at mesoscopic scales, i.e., between molecules and structured surfaces with features on the scale of molecular sizes, in which case the finite sizes, complex shapes, and resulting nonlocal electronic excitations of molecules are strongly influenced by electromagnetic retardation and wave effects that depend crucially on the shapes of surrounding macroscopic bodies. We show that these effects together can modify vdW interaction energies and forces, as well as molecular shapes deformed by vdW interactions, by orders of magnitude compared to previous treatments based on Casimir-Polder, nonretarded, or pairwise approximations, which are valid only at macroscopically large or atomic-scale separations or in dilute insulating media, respectively.

The authors describe a 58-year-old man with sudden onset of a unilateral tremor caused by a midbrain lesion that affected the substantia nigra and the cerebellothalamic pathway. There were also clinical and neuroimaging signs of a communicating chronic hydrocephalus. The patient was severely handicapped by this tremor, which was a typical Holmes tremor with rest, posture, and intention components. Parkinson disease or multiple-system atrophy as causes for the tremor could be ruled out by DaTSCAN and 123I iodobenzamide and single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT), respectively. The tremor was completely supressed by temporary and permanent cerebrospinal fluid release after ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement, without any additional medication, for a period of 6 months. Afterward, the tremor returned, and the patient had to be treated by a stereotactic electrode implantation in the contralateral ventralis intermedius nucleus, which led to complete tremor suppression during the 1.5-year follow-up period. In this case report, the authors present the clinical description and the electrophysiological, SPECT, and magnetic resonance imaging data of a rare combination of symptoms and their surgical treatment.

In meiner Dissertation untersuche ich die implizite Ästhetik im Werk Hannah Arendts. Ich gehe von der These aus, dass Ästhetik und Humanität in ihrem Werk eng miteinander verknüpft sind, da die Ausbildung einer ästhetischen (Denk-)Haltung eine Kultivierung des Geistes impliziert, die das Denken erst für den öffentlichen Raum vorbereitet. Wesentlich an der Kultivierung des Geistes ist für Arendt dabei die Ausbildung des Geschmacks. Überraschenderweise liest Arendt die Kritik der Urteilskraft als Referenztheorie und findet dort Kants ›wahre‹ politische Theorie vor: Der Geschmack als Inbegriff der Humanitas avanciert bei ihr zur conditio sine qua non des Politischen. Er ermöglicht es, Menschen qua ästhetischer Haltung als ›Zweck-in-sich-selbst‹ zu betrachten. Es wird daher deutlich, dass für Arendt das Ästhetische als Inbegriff des Politischen zu verstehen ist.

L'Union européenne est l'objet de multiples idées reçues, préjugés et autres clichés. Ceux-ci émanent aussi bien des eurosceptiques, qui cherchent à discréditer le projet européen, que des fédéralistes, déçus par le manque d'ambition de l'Europe actuelle. Toutes ces caricatures dessinent une Europe imaginaire. Dans cet essai clair, didactique, actualisé, et spécialement destiné aux candidats des concours de la fonction publique, les auteurs, spécialistes des affaires européennes, s'attachent à faire mieux connaître l'Union européenne, qui est une structure éminemment complexe. Confrontant à la réalité des faits le "prêt-à-penser-l'Europe" qui ressort des 50 idées les plus communément reçues, ils ménagent une place aux différents courants de pensée, avec l'ambition de donner le goût de cette "idée neuve", l'Europe.

The European Union crisis responses and the Efficient Capital Markets Hypothesis (ECMH) : The hypothesis that capital markets naturally function in an efficient way - possibly one of the widest accepted dogmas of contemporary liberalism - has for many years encouraged politicians and regulators in the US and in Europe to refrain from regulating too strictly or even to deregulate the financial industry. Moreover, by leaving the final responsibility of the soundness of their public finances to the individual Member States, the Efficient Capital Markets Hypothesis (ECMH) underpins the constitutional framework of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). The recent financial and sovereign debts crises, however, have highlighted the limits of the ECMH and the dangers for market actors, financial institutions, regulators and politicians of relying on the efficiency of financial markets without any qualification. In reaction to the financial and sovereign debts crises the European Union and its Member States have thus adopted or proposed a vast set of measures, stretching from new mechanisms of solidarity within the euro-zone to a banking union. While the overarching goal is to release the stress that financial markets continue to exercise both on the stability of the financial system and the EMU, these measures have been designed in urgency and tend to focus on specific issues. The overall vision and coherence of these measures are far from obvious. The present paper proposes to assess to what extent the European Union has learned the lessons about the ECMH and its impact on regulation that the crises taught us. [less ▲]

New generation of free trade agreements (CETA, TTIP, agreements with Singapore, China, Vietnam, Japan i.e.) are the expression of the objective of making the European Union a global international actor. The external action of the Union is however dependent on the principle of conferral and the division of competences with its Member States. It results from Opinion 2/15 of the Court of Justice that the EU competence to conclude the free trade agreement with Singapore is not exclusive, as long as provisions concerning non-direct investments and dispute settlement fall under the shared competence of the Union and its Member States. The limits of the Union’s external competence and the conclusion of a mixed agreement jeopardise the effectiveness of the Union’s external action. However, the objective of an efficient external action allows a novel interpretation of the scope of the Union’s competence in the field of common commercial policy, comprising sustainable development provisions, as well as of the conditions of exercise of shared external competences.

Economic geography models predict the agglomeration of manufacturing activies only if the workforce is mobile. Still, as the E.U.’s experience shows, core–periphery patterns exist even though the workforce is rather immobile. The paper provides a theoretical explanation for such core–periphery patterns through the effect that unions have on firms’ incentive to agglomerate in a region. The paper offers fully analytical results about location equilibria and some interesting welfare properties. [less ▲]

A partial function f on a k-element set Ek is a partial Sheffer function if every partial function on Ek is definable in terms of f. Since this holds if and only if f belongs to no maximal partial clone on Ek, a characterization of partial Sheffer functions reduces to finding families of minimal coverings of maximal partial clones on Ek. We show that for each k ≥ 2, there exists a unique minimal covering. [less ▲]
