Coevolutionary algorithms search for test cases as part of the search process. The resulting adaptive evaluation function takes away the need to define a fixed evaluation function, but may also be unstable and thereby prevent reliable progress. Recent work in coevolution has therefore focused on algorithms that guarantee progress with respect to a given solution concept. The Nash Memory archive guarantees monotonicity with respect to the game-theoretic solution concept of the Nash equilibrium, but is limited to symmetric games. We present an extension of the Nash Memory that guarantees monotonicity for asymmetric games. The Parallel Nash Memory is demonstrated in experiments, and its performance on general sum games is discussed. [less ▲]

This paper addresses the problem of computing optimal structured treatment interruption strategies for HIV infected patients. We show that reinforcement learning may be useful to extract such strategies directly from clinical data, without the need of an accurate mathematical model of HIV infection dynamics. To support our claims, we report simulation results obtained by running a recently proposed batch-mode reinforcement learning algorithm, known as fitted Q iteration, on numerically generated data.

The social inequalities of health are observed in the field of illness and death. What about the inequalities with a handicap?. The studies and surveys that highlight the relationship between handicap and social health inequalities are cruelly lacking. It is for this reason that we tried to explore this relationship in the scope of a survey carried out in France on the social and family repercussions of a cerebral vascular attack. The method used, a significant national survey in France (1000 people questioned in 260 families where a stroke took place in the previous year), carried out in 2004/2005 taking into account the family repercussion of a cerebral vascular attack, we tried to highlight the differences and the social inequalities that exist as much in the frequency and the gravity of deficiencies due to a stroke, as in the effects produced on the family life, in particular to the spouse. This survey, conducted in the home, is made up of three questionnaires, one of which is the main one( particularly the spouse’s) takes into account all the aspects of family life and the social relationships whilst trying to highlight the repercussions following the stroke. The results. The results show the extent of the impact on the family, especially in the relationship of the couple. On the whole, they confirm the assumption of social inequalities between social groups defined according to the income, the educational level and the profession, in particular with regards to the gravity of deficiencies, progress of rehabilitation, the quality of the financial responsibility, the standard of living and in several dimensions of social life (leisure and cultural activities). However it is necessary to underline the difficulty in isolating the social inequalities which are expressed apart from the situation due to the stroke; inequalities which can be enhanced or which take on a particular character because of this accident. Conclusion We can hold on to the hypothesis that the stroke represents an event that can be considered as an indicator of the previous social state and relationship, bringing on in some way aggravating effects that can be as positive as they can be negative. Social health inequalities must be analyses whilst taking this hypothesis into account. [less ▲]

In this paper we are interested in non-monotonic extensions of Bengt Hansson’s standard dyadic deontic logic 3, known as DSDL3. We study specificity principles for DSDL3 with both controllable and uncontrollable propositions. We introduce an algorithm for minimal specificity which not only covers obligations but also permissions, and we discuss the distinction between weak and strong permissions. Moreover, we introduce ways to combine algorithms for minimal and maximal specificity for DSDL3 with controllable and uncontrollable propositions, based on ‘optimistic’ and ‘pessimistic’ reasoning respectively.

An increased RF-Performance of heterojunction field-effect transistor was found to be due to passivation and in addition a SiO2 insulation underneath the gate metallization. This leads to an increase of cutoff frequency from 17 GHz up to 24 GHz for devices with 500 nm gate length. The RF output power increased from 4.1 to 6.7 W/mm at 7 GHz. RF simulation based on measured S-parameter showed a decrease of gate-source-capacitance and transconductance for devices with a dielectric layer underneath the gate metallization. The increase of the ratio gm/Cgs of about 25% is in agreement with the measured cutoff frequency ft. [less ▲]

The application of mathematical programming methodologies to biochemical systems is demonstrated with the presentation of a linear programming (LP) algorithm for calculating minimal pathway distances in biochemical networks. Minimal pathway distances are identified as the smallest number of steps separating two nodes in the network. Two case studies are examined: 1) the minimal distances for Escherichia coli Small Molecule Metabolism (SMM) enzymes are calculated and their correlations with genome distance and enzyme function are considered; 2) a study of the p53 cell cycle and apoptosis control network is performed in order to assess the survivability of the network to both random node failures and a directed assault, by studying the modification of the network’s diameter for successive protein knockouts. The results verify the applicability of the algorithm to problems of biochemical nature. [less ▲]

‘Exigence de qualité’ et ‘vin’ sont devenus presque des synonymes pour quiconque veut acheter une bouteille. Peu d’autres composants que le vin ne sont convoqués pour juger de la qualité d’ensemble d’un repas, indiquant un statut similaire du commentaire sur la ‘qualité individuelle’ du vin servi et sur le ‘talent d’ensemble’ de la personne qui a conçu et préparé le repas. Mais qui dit ‘juger’, dit ‘communiquer’, ‘donner un avis’ tant soit peu argumenté – chose délicate, étant donné que les discours sur le vin se sont peu à peu complexifiés et multipliés . D’où le succès public des cours du soir en œnologie, censés enseigner le discernement sur la qualité, si utile lors de la consommation du vin. Mais peut-on parler d’apprentissage de la qualité ? La consommation de vin peut être schématisée en trois étapes actives – en omettant ici l’étape passive de l’encavement domestique : l’achat après une sélection, le service (en général combiné à un repas), et le fait de boire le vin. Quand la filière professionnelle parle de la nécessité d’ « éducation du consommateur », elle fait référence surtout à un aiguisement sensoriel, permettant d’affiner la perception au nez et en bouche de ce produit très nuancé, dans le double but de faire valoir la qualité intrinsèque de vins élaborés dans cet esprit et, en conséquence, d’infléchir les comportements de consommation, plus conscients car formés et informés, dans cette direction . Or, dans la verbalisation de personnes fréquentant des cours du soir en œnologie, c’est précisément cette troisième étape de la consommation qui est majoritairement présentée comme non problématisée. Ce n’est pas la perception sensorielle de la qualité qui soulève des questions aux yeux des buveurs, mais la sélection lors de l’achat, ainsi que le service de vins de qualité, combinés de manière avantageuse à un plat – c’est-à-dire de sorte que la qualité initiale du vin soit manifeste à tous les convives. De plus, le service devient seulement « difficile » quand il a lieu dans une situation publique : avec des invités ou au restaurant – alors que le choix du vin à apprécier en famille se fait « juste comme ça », de lui-même, sans élaboration de discours. Paraît ainsi une distinction opératoire entre ‘qualité en sphère privée’ et ‘qualité en sphère publique’, plus normée et du coup plus subtile à mettre en œuvre. En conformité avec les attentes générales de la filière professionnelle, les œnologues chargé(e)s des cours du soir en œnologie, se positionnant « dans le sens du terroir », entendent – chacun dans son style d’enseignement individuel – à la fois construire et consolider des compétences cognitives et développer des savoir-faire sensoriels. Afin d’atteindre l’objectif consensuel d’une plus grande autonomie « du consommateur », capable de juger et de départir sans aide extérieure, ce sont les capacités de perception et d’évaluation sensorielle de la qualité qui constituent l’outil ultime. Tandis que les connaissances sur le contexte et le mode de production du vin, constituent un savoir en toile de fond, utile seulement dans ses combinaisons pratiques avec des expériences gustatives directes. Mais les personnes fréquentant ces cours sont surtout attentives à l’exposé oral fait par l’œnologue et voient la dégustation (composée de vins aux propriétés sensorielles ‘didactiques’ et ‘démonstratives’, car toujours « typiques » de leur origine) comme un simple agrément. Les questions qui reviennent le plus souvent sont celles de ‘recettes’ toutes faites sur l’achat et le service des vins, dans un désir de transposabilité à l’identique. Les œnologues résistent à ces pressions en prônant l’entraînement sensoriel (« l’on ne peut que recommander aux gens de goûter »), aboutissant à des opinions individuelles – ce dans un cadre qualitatif maîtrisé, tel qu’il a été présenté dans le cours : « après le cours, les gens ont une possibilité de trouver si un vin est bon ou pas bon ». Au terme de cette interaction entre ‘consommateur apprenant’, désireux de se retrouver dans la jungle des vins espérés de qualité, et les chargé(e)s de cours, on pourrait parler de « malentendu culturel » (Pedler, 2004 : 127) diffus. Comme dans d’autres domaines culturels, effectivement « rien n’indique qu’il existe une adéquation entre offres et réceptions cultivées » (idem : 130). Entre le fait d’entendre ‘dire la qualité’ (par l’œnologue) et l’apprendre dans un cours (pour soi), les médiations semblent incertaines, et les inhibitions ne se lèvent qu’à des conditions individuelles particulières. Notamment la famille et la curiosité affranchie sont des incitateurs puissants pour dépasser la renonciation majoritaire d’aller au bout du voyage entamé. Ces facteurs permettent d’aboutir du « j’aime » ou « je n’aime pas » vers un plaisir de découverte, d’expérimentation et d’énonciation du ‘pourquoi’ de la qualité. [less ▲]

Complex fault-tolerant distributed systems have a growing need of new functional and quality requirements. An immediate consequence of this is an increasing need of new methods for developing complex fault-tolerant distributed applications. Coordinated Atomic Actions (CAAs), making use of exception handling mechanism, offer an approach to ensure the needed requirements of reliability, availability and fault tolerance. Unfortunately, there is currently no method for the high-level modeling of such systems. In this paper, in order to offer an instrument for modeling exception handling, we propose a UML2.0 Platform Independent Profile for CAAs that allows designers to describe complex systems separating the specification from the implementation on a specific technology platform.

More than two years of data of the champ satellite mission is available and the usage of the energy balance approach for global gravity field recovery has been successfully implemented by several groups around the world. This paper addresses two important aspects of the data processing. First, high-quality gravity recovery requires numerical differentiation of kinematic positions. Two methods are investigated using simulated and real dynamic data. It is shown that a third order Taylor differentiator is sufficient to reach good results. Second drift due to the accelerometer bias has to be corrected. Two possible approaches are discussed: cross-over calibration on the one hand calibration w.r.t. a reference model on the other hand. Currently the crossover calibration fails due to the insufficient accuracy of the crossover determination whereas the calibration w.r.t. a reference model gives good results. [less ▲]

We define an aggregation function to be (at most) k-intolerant if it is bounded from above by its kth lowest input value. Applying this definition to the discrete Choquet integral and its underlying capacity, we introduce the concept of k-intolerant capacities which, when varying k from 1 to n, cover all the possible capacities on n objects. Just as the concepts of k-additive capacities and p-symmetric capacities have been previously introduced essentially to overcome the problem of computational complexity of capacities, k-intolerant capacities are proposed here for the same purpose but also for dealing with intolerant or tolerant behaviors of aggregation. We also introduce axiomatically indices to appraise the extent to which a given capacity is k-intolerant and we apply them on a particular recruiting problem. [less ▲]

Aujourd'hui l'analyse sociologique permet d'envisager la consommation de psychotropes par les seniors comme une caractéristique de nos sociétés modernes contemporaines. Le recours à ces médicaments est devenu l'une des clefs de la compréhension des comportements occidentaux où la recherche de bien-être physique, mental et social à tout prix est ressentie comme une nécessité avérée.Comment les consommateurs parviennent-ils à gérer leur consommation au point de la considérer comme non problématique ? Quelles attitudes pratiques et symboliques mettent-ils en œuvre pour y parvenir ? Est-il réellement possible de gérer son rapport à des produits intrinsèquement générateurs de dépendance ? Existe-t-il vraiment des personnes capables de contrôler leur consommation de psychotropes au point de la rendre compatible avec un mode de vie détaché de la dépendance à ce produit ? Existe-t-il une consommation invisible en raison même de son caractère non problématique pour les seniors ? Avec l'aide du psychotrope ne s'agit-il donc pas de rendre supportable et acceptable les effets du stigmate vécus par les seniors qui glissent peu à peu hors de la sphère productive ? La prescription de ces médicaments n'amène-t-elle pas à traduire des défaillances personnelles, des problèmes d'ordre social en besoin de solutions biomédicales ? Au-delà de cette médicalisation, ne doit-on pas également voir ces substances comme des moyens permettant de mieux répondre à la demande de performance définissant la normativité contemporaine ? Cette consommation ne révèle-t-elle pas une attitude de démission thérapeutique de la part des professionnels de la santé ? Les objectifs de ce travail ont été d’analyser les valeurs attribuées aux psychotropes, à la dépendance et le sens que les consommateurs et les consommatrices ayant une trajectoire continue ou occasionnelle donnent aux recours à ces médicaments.

Hence the success of adult evening classes in wine tasting for beginners. In Luxembourg, they are organised by oenologists who use varying methodological approaches, which all share the development of consumer autonomy via cognition and especially sensorial training.

Comme dans tous les pays européens, un grand nombre de mesures à destination des jeunes sortis du système scolaire sans qualification ont été mises en place au Luxembourg. Une étude systématique par interview semi-dirigée a été réalisée auprès des responsables formation de l'ensemble des 32 dispositifs répertoriés au Luxembourg, en distinguant les mesures spécifiquement destinées aux jeunes et celles destinées pour tout âge, jeunes compris. L'enquête visait surtout à déterminer les caractéristiques des pratiques pédagogiques mises en oeuvre avec les publics concernés. A partir du dépouillement du matériel recueilli, une typologie en trois catégories a été élaborée. Celle-ci est construite sur 10 indicateurs importants : pré-requis, statut de l'apprenant, profil de l'apprenant, activités de remotivation, description de la formation (contenus et méthodes), suivi, stages, formateurs, qualification/certification, débouchés. Elle distingue les formations par le travail (formation "sur le tas" permettant d'apprendre des tâches professionnelles spécifiques ainsi que des compétences sociales de base), les formations d'insertion socio-professionnelle (formations se basant sur un programme de formation défini et donnent droit à une attestation en fonction d'une évaluation) et les formations qualifiantes (formations permettant d'obtenir un diplôme ou un certificat officiel du ministère et donnant droit à un barème salarial légal). Chacun de ces dispositifs a une logique de fonctionnement propre, une certaine cohérence en fonction du profil du groupe cible, des objectifs visés et de la démarche socio-pédagogique adoptée. Chacun de ces dispositifs correspond à des possibilités de travail avec une certaine partie du groupe cible. Situées à des distances spécifiques sur l'axe de transition entre la formation initiale et la vie active, ces types de mesures combinent de façon variable des caractéristiques spécifiques du champ scolaire et du champ professionnel.

L’internationalisation des rapports juridiques conduit de plus en plus à une imbrication des systèmes juridiques et à la nécessité de reconnaître des institutions juridiques venus d’ailleurs. L’une de ces institutions, le trust, né dans le système de la common law, s’exporte de plus en plus dans les pays de tradition civiliste. Pour faciliter son acclimatation, la Convention de la Haye relative à la loi applicable au trust et à sa reconnaissance a été adoptée le 1er juillet 1985. Cette Convention entend à la fois permettre la reconnaissance de cette institution par des ordres juridiques qui ne la connaissent pas et fixer à l'égard des pays signataires la loi applicable au trust. A l’aube de sa ratification par la Suisse, des experts venus de différents pays se sont réunis à l’Institut suisse de droit comparé (Lausanne) le 18 mars 2005 pour partager les expériences nationales. Le présent ouvrage publie les rapports exposés à cette occasion. [less ▲]

Design flaws often become apparent at a time when the product is already in use and its development process, which in many cases includes extensive testing of parts, components and prototypes, is considered complete. Such flaws may reach from poor ergonomics to the total failure of the product. Often, especially when user safety is at risk, design flaws are so severe that companies are forced to announce a product callback. Petroski suggests that many (if not most) products, which we are familiar with today, have a long history of previously flawed designs [3]. This implies that designers did indeed learn from design flaws in both senses of the word “learn”: discovering the flaw and utilizing the knowledge gained about it to find a solution. As far as discovering a design flaw is concerned, it can be assumed that the feedback from those who interact with the physical products in practice – the individuals who maintain, repair, recycle but essentially use the products – plays an important role. In their previous work, the authors pointed out hat this feedback information could not only be vital for identifying potential product hazards but helps designers to review the effects of their design measures and therefore to improve their products from generation to generation [4]. In order to obtain a better understanding of how designers learn from design flaws, a mail survey was conducted that aimed at investigating company-, process- and product-related factors of this phenomenon and to answer (among others) the following research questions: • To what extent are design flaws of a company’s (or a competitor’s) product a driving force in the development of new products? • How do the designers of a company become aware of design flaws of their products? • How successful are companies in correcting design flaws? • How do successful and unsuccessful companies differ in terms of size, activity profile of their designers and characteristics of their products? • What are possible factors that influence the success in correcting a design fault?

We present a simple randomized POMDP al gorithm for planning with continuous actions in partially observable environments. Our algorithm operates on a set of reachable belief points, sampled by letting the robot interact randomly with the environment. We perform value iteration steps, ensuring that in each step the value of all sampled belief points is improved. The idea here is that by sampling actions from a continuous action space we can quickly improve the value of all belief points in the set. We demonstrate the viability of our algorithm on two sets of experiments: one involving an active localization task and one concerning robot navigation in a perceptually aliased of fice environment.

An autonomous system able to construct its own navigation strategy for mobile robots is proposed. The navigation strategy is molded from navigation experiences (succeeding as the robot navigates) according to a classical reinforcement learning procedure. The autonomous system is based on modular hierarchical neural networks. Initially the navigation performance is poor (many collisions occur). Computer simulations show that after a period of learning the autonomous system generates efficient obstacle avoidance and target seeking behaviors. Experiments also offer support for concluding that the autonomous system develops a variety of object discrimination capability and of spatial concepts. [less ▲]

Specification and testing activities are key phases in embedded systems development life cycles. In specification-based testing approaches, test cases are solely generated from the system specification. Test cases are often too numerous to be executed exhaustively. In practice, test engineers often select test cases based on informal approximations. We aim at improving these activities by formulating abstraction hypotheses on system specifications, to reduce generated test sets. Our general application framework is the automotive industry, and we aim the specific domain of small-sized real-time embedded systems that must be highly reliable. The main result presented in this paper is a model transformation language that helps test engineers to select test cases based on system specifications. [less ▲]

We describe Utile Coordination, an algorithm that allows a multiagent system to learn where and how to coordinate. The method starts with uncoordinated learners and maintains statistics on expected returns. Coordination dependencies are dynamically added if the statistics indicate a statistically significant benefit. This results in a compact state representation because only necessary coordination is modeled. We apply our method within the framework of coordination graphs in which value rules represent the coordination dependencies between the agents for a specific context. The algorithm is first applied on a small illustrative problem, and next on a large predator-prey problem in which two predators have to capture a single prey. [less ▲]

We propose a gossip-based distributed algorithm for Gaussian mixture learning, Newscast EM. The algorithm operates on network topologies where each node observes a local quantity and can communicate with other nodes in an arbitrary point-to-point fashion. The main difference between Newscast EM and the standard EM algorithm is that the M-step in our case is implemented in a decentralized manner: (random) pairs of nodes repeatedly exchange their local parameter estimates and combine them by (weighted) averaging. We provide theoretical evidence and demonstrate experimentally that, under this protocol, nodes converge exponentially fast to the correct estimates in each M-step of the EM algorithm. [less ▲]

In den letzen Jahrzehnten ist eine Vielzahl von Modellen zur methodischen Unterstützung des Produktentwicklungsprozesses (PEP) entstanden. Diese präskriptiven Modelle beinhalten oft den impliziten Anspruch, in jeder Branche und auf die Entwicklung jeder Art von Produkten anwendbar zu sein. Um dem gerecht zu werden, beschreiben die Modelle den PEP auf einem relativ abstrakten Niveau. Eine Anpassung an den Kontext der Produktentwicklung erfolgt in der Regel nicht. Existierende Ansätze ermöglichen eine Analyse des Kontexts aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln, bieten jedoch keine konkreten Vorschläge, wie diese Analyse in den Prozess der Produktentwicklung einfließen kann. Welche Auswirkungen ausgewählte Kontextfaktoren auf tatsächliche PEP haben, geht aus einer schriftlichen Befragung von 1000 deutschen Unternehmen des produzierenden Gewerbes hervor. Es werden die Grundlagen einer Vorgehensweise beschrieben, welche basierend auf dem Kontext der Produktentwicklung die Gestaltung effektiver, effizienter, transparenter und methodisch unterstützter Produktentwicklungsprozesse ermöglichen soll.

Un nombre considérable d’études menées dans différents champs de la psychologie ou en ergonomie ont permis de mettre en évidence le caractère spécifique et contextualisé de l’activité professionnelle et de la compétence. Toutefois, cette notion de contexte de travail, largement présente dans la littérature, demeure encore largement absente des pratiques de mobilité professionnelle. Le travail présenté s’appuie sur l’hypothèse générale selon laquelle l’analyse et la prise en compte des contextes de travail peut améliorer l’efficacité des démarches d’aide à la mobilité professionnelle. Cette recherche a commencé par la mise au point, à partir de l’analyse de différents types d’emplois, d’une première typologie d’éléments de contexte susceptibles de jouer un rôle dans la mobilité. Ensuite, ces éléments de contexte ont été intégrés dans une méthodologie « systématique » d’aide à la mobilité intégrant la prise en compte du contexte dans l’analyse de l’expérience. Une étude de validation a été menée auprès de 68 personnes salariées d’entreprises de travail temporaire, 39 personnes suivies par divers centres de bilan et d’orientation et 10 personnes salariées d’une grande entreprise industrielle ; un suivi de ces personnes est effectué. Les données fournies par cette étude confirment l’intérêt qu’il y a à prendre en compte l’expérience du contexte pour la construction de parcours professionnels. [less ▲]

We present a value iteration algorithm for learning to act in Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs) with continuous state spaces. Mainstream POMDP research focuses on the discrete case and this complicates its application to, e.g., robotic problems that are naturally modeled using continuous state spaces. The main difficulty in defining a (belief-based) POMDP in a continuous state space is that expected values over states must be defined using integrals that, in general, cannot be computed in closed from. In this paper, we first show that the optimal finite-horizon value function over the continuous infinite-dimensional POMDP belief space is piecewise linear and convex, and is defined by a finite set of supporting α-functions that are analogous to the α-vectors (hyperplanes) defining the value function of a discrete-state POMDP. Second, we show that, for a fairly general class of POMDP models in which all functions of interest are modeled by Gaussian mixtures, all belief updates and value iteration backups can be carried out analytically and exact. A crucial difference with respect to the α-vectors of the discrete case is that, in the continuous case, the α-functions will typically grow in complexity (e.g., in the number of components) in each value iteration. Finally, we demonstrate PERSEUS, our previously proposed randomized point-based value iteration algorithm, in a simple robot planning problem with a continuous domain, where encouraging results are observed.

Our paper presents some results from a research on women's entrepreneurship in Belgium, which is part of a wider project called “Diane”, which took place within the framework of an equal opportunity action. We choose to expose one of the most interesting aspects of this research on women’s entrepreneurship : financing. The main question of our research was to enquire whether there are any specificities in the women’s entrepreneurship in Belgium as regards the financing of their firms. First, we investigated the amounts that female entrepreneurs invested for the start-up and development of their firms. Second, we aimed to determine which financing sources were used by female entrepreneurs. Finally, we enquired whether they had access to external financing, and more specifically to bank loans. Our results show that female entrepreneurs have mainly recourse to their personal savings or to family and friends’ loans to finance the company start-up and development. But they use also bank loans in a great extent for their firm launching. Nevertheless, it seems that they apply for bank loans only if they have no other choice, due to their strong risk-aversion and their lack of trust toward bankers. These reasons also lead them to invest lower amounts in the start-up and development of their companies. Female entrepreneurs face a lot of barriers to bank financing. There are several specific financing problems for female entrepreneurs, related to some of their firm’s characteristics, especially the field of activity and the size. Some gender characteristics can also be barriers to financing. On the basis of our results, we draw some recommendations for public authorities. [less ▲]

In the framework of cooperative game theory and multicriteria decision making, the concept of interaction index, which can be regarded as an extension of that of value, has been recently proposed to measure the interaction phenomena among players or criteria. Axiomatizations of two classes of interaction indices, namely probabilistic interaction indices and cardinal-probabilistic interaction indices, generalizing probabilistic values and semivalues, respectively, are first proposed. Three existing instances of cardinal-probabilistic interaction indices encountered thus far in the literature are also axiomatized. [less ▲]

We give an interpretation of order invariant functions as scale independent functions for the aggregation on finite ordinal scales. More precisely, we show how order invariant functions can act, through discrete representatives, on ordinal scales represented by finite chains. In particular, this interpretation allows us to justify the continuity property for certain order invariant functions in a natural way. [less ▲]

We define an aggregation function to be (at most) k-intolerant if it is bounded from above by its kth lowest input value. Applying this definition to the discrete Choquet integral and its underlying capacity, we introduce the concept of k-intolerant capacities which, when varying k from 1 to n, cover all the possible capacities on n objects. Just as the concepts of k-additive capacities and p-symmetric capacities have been previously introduced essentially to overcome the problem of computational complexity of capacities, k-intolerant capacities are proposed here for the same purpose but also for dealing with intolerant or tolerant behaviors of aggregation. We also introduce axiomatically indices to appraise the extent to which a given capacity is k-intolerant. [less ▲]

In this communication we propose two logically sound fuzzification and defuzzifi- cation techniques for implementing a credibility calculus on a set of propositional expressions. Both rely on a credibility evaluation domain using the rational in- terval [−1, 1] where the sign carries a split truth/falseness denotation. The first technique implements the classic min and max operators where as the second technique implements Bochvar-like operators. Main interest in the communica- tion is given to the concept of natural fuzzification of a propositional calculus. A formal definition is proposed and the demonstration that both fuzzification techniques indeed verify this definition is provided. [less ▲]

This paper presents a formal approach for the specification and the verification of UML diagrams against a set of structural properties. This work is part of the E-fficient research project, aiming at building correct e-business processes. An e-business process is described using class and activity diagrams. The verification of structural properties gives a degree of confidence regarding the correctness of the related business process. Our proposal is based on the formal approach promoted by the USE tool. The USE approach aims at validating a particular state of an object model against properties described in OCL. The contributions of this paper are: the introduction of meta-model based on class diagrams for UML diagrams to be verified, rules for the translation of the class, object and activity diagrams into USE specifications, and the specification of structural properties in OCL.
