Scanning Brillouin microscopy visualizes the temporal evolution of a heterogeneous hypersonic profile during chemical reactions and transport processes around a planar phase boundary between an epoxy resin and hardener. The hypersonic investigations are interpreted in terms of structural formation and annihilation in the layered sample and are compared to results obtained for a well mixed bulk sample of the same composition of reactants. Chaotic transport channels are made responsible for the creation of local glassy heterogeneities not observable in the bulk material on a macroscopic level. [less ▲]

Numerical and spatial abilities have been correlated on many occasions. People who tend to be more proficient at spatial tasks also tend to be more proficient at mathematical operations and understanding of numbers. The current work takes several approaches to describe this relationship in further detail by investigating the role of attentional systems and executive control with regards to the processing of numbers and quantities. In a first attempt to do so we provide two studies whose goal it was to replicate the classical association between Arabic digits and response modality (SNARC-effect) and the association between Arabic digits and attentional shifts (Attentional SNARC-effect). In two further studies, we investigated the role of the Attentional SNARC-effect with regards to visual processing and consciousness. In the first of these studies, we made use of a backwards-mask to obscure a single Arabic digit from conscious processing, resulting in the loss of its spatial association in a line-bisection task. Secondly, we used a novel binocular rivalry paradigm to suppress two lateral stimuli from conscious perception and found that the duration of suppression was influenced by the numerical magnitude of a single presented Arabic digit. Specifically, we found that a stimulus on the left side of space would return faster when the Arabic digit was lower than five and that the right side of space would exhibit the same effect when the Arabic digit was higher than five. A crucial manipulation in these last two experiments was an adaptation to the original paradigm for measuring the attentional SNARC-effect. By adding a control-question on the magnitude or parity at the end of each trial, we ensured that the spatial effects would occur during these experiments. Furthermore, this effectively turned the experiments into working-memory tasks. Finally, we tested the influence of a visuo-spatial working-memory task and an addition-task on fronto-parietal network associated with mathematical operations in an event-related fMRI-experiment. This experiment included members of three populations with different levels of mathematical proficiency (Children with Developmental Dyscalculia, Typically developing children and Typical Adults). We found that brain-areas associated with executive control and basic visual processing were affected differently for children with developmental dyscalculia, hinting at a deficiency in visuo-spatial processing in this particular group.

As the subject of earnest discussion, the meaning of space reaches far beyond the horizon of a single discipline. Lukas Feiriss has assembled a collection of international contributions for Space Matters, a publication of the space & design strategies study program of the Univeristy of Art and Design, Linz, Austria to create an inspiring expansion of the contemporary discourse on space. The publication addresses cultural resarchers and readers in creative professions – architects, artists, curators, scientists and students in all the related fields as well as those members of a broader audience that are interested in the incorporation of space and the pratices with which it is designed in cultural, social and humanities-oriented contexts.

The increasing interest in extracting natural resources from celestial bodies raises many issues, among which guaranteeing environmental standards is paramount. There is more than a reasonable concern that industrial exploitation of the outer space lead to similar or even greater disasters than the ones already afflicting Earth. There is a consensus among the legal community that international law does provide environmental protection through the Outer Space Treaty in its Article IX; it prevents harmful contamination, mandates due regard and recommends consultation. However, this provision, applicable to all space activities, is too general. It precludes the agreement from effectively protecting the outer space’s environment in the context of specific activities. The contribution aims at exploring appropriate legal responses. It is often proposed that such a response should be to prepare a new international agreement. However, treaty-making process involves a long time. Not even considering the reluctance of States to adopt binding international documents limiting their freedom in space, there is a high chance that space mining activities will have started by the time there is any kind of international agreement. This is why another approach must be envisaged; one which takes into account the analysis of existing environmental standards that could be leveraged to answer the challenges of space mining activities. Special attention will be paid to the enforcement of the Outer Space Treaty and how it should be combined with what is usually referred to as “soft laws”—such as the work of the international Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) on planetary protection policies. As a conclusion, the contribution attempts to answer the question of the transforming role of States in complementing existing international standards for the protection of the outer space environment.

In this paper, we critically investigate policy strategies that attempt to control spaces (housing) and flows (mobility) through so called integrative approaches, hypothesizing that they are flawed in design and ineffective in implementation. The research looks at processes in the small state of Luxembourg, which has pursued a niche strategy of national sovereignty development through a highly successful transition from an industrial based economy to one that rests on financial services, and a high degree of internationalization. This development trajectory, however, has created a set of deeply fragmented office-archipelagos that squeeze out housing, and generate massive commuter traffic. In response to these pressures, planning officials formulated a set of spatially integrative sustainable development guidelines that postulated sector integration, drawing upon normative orientations (central place theory), and prioritizing international objectives of European consolidation over local integration. Yet, they are flawed. A constructivist method was undertaken including document surveys, conversational interviews, and participant observation. Our results show that this centralist approach fails in meeting its mark, because instead of addressing problems of uncoordinated and conflicting authorities within and beyond the nation, they assume a clean system-wide durable “Russian Doll” architecture of state and institution. The result is further fragmentation through integration. [less ▲]

We present a theoretical model of residential growth that emphasises the path-dependent nature of urban sprawl patterns. The model is founded on the monocentric urban economic model and uses a cellular automata (CA) approach to introduce endogenous neighbourhood effects. Households are assumed both to like and to dislike the density of their neighbourhood, and are assumed to trade-off this density with housing space consumption and commuting costs. Discontinuous spatial patterns emerge from that trade-off, with the size of suburban clusters varying with time and distance to the centre. We use space – time diagrams inspired from 1D elementary CA to visualise changes in spatial patterns through time and space, and undertake sensitivity analyses to show how the pattern and timing of sprawl are affected by neighbourhood preferences, income level, commuting costs, or by imposing a green belt.
