Le chapitre 1 Législations, partis et campagne électorale au Luxembourg retrace d’une part les transformations du système politique luxembourgeois (avec la modification de la loi électorale, la promulgation de loi sur le financement des partis politiques et les évènements qui ont marqué la législature 2004-2009) et, d’autre part analyse les enjeux et challenges de la législature 2004-2009. Il se focalise sur la campagne électorale de septembre 2008 à juin 2009 (aussi bien à travers les sondages que par un dépouillement exhaustif de la presse quotidienne et hebdomadaire luxembourgeoise de langue allemande et française à caractère politique). Le chapitre 2 Formation de l’opinion et candidats aux législatives et européennes a pour objet les conditions de la formation de l’opinion, de la représentation et de la médiation en politique au Grand-Duché. Ce chapitre informe particulièrement sur comment les citoyens forment leurs intentions de vote, les stratégies des partis tant dans le choix des candidatures que dans la mise en forme de leurs identités politiques et leurs relations avec les autres acteurs du système politique, communément appelés la « société civile ». Le chapitre 3 Résultats des élections législatives et européennes introduit non seulement de nouveaux modes de calculs pour la présentation des résultats, mais établit aussi des corrélations entre des caractéristiques socio-démographiques, tirées des données du recensement de 2001, des données statistiques sur la population en 2008 et en 2009 du STATEC et de l’IGSS de 2009 et des résultats des partis au niveau des 116 communes du Luxembourg. Les chapitre 4 et 5 Électorats dans les sondages pré & post-électoral visent, quant à eux, à établir le portrait sociologique des électorats des partis et leurs valeurs à travers tant les classiques déterminants du vote, comme la structure par âge, par genre, par niveau d’instruction et par situation face à l’emploi que par l’échelle des valeurs « matérialistes »/ »post-matérialistes » conceptualisée par Ronald Inglehart et ses disciples. En plus de l’étude des Luxembourgeois, pour la première fois, nous analysons aussi les étrangers résidents au Luxembourg. Le chapitre 6 Étude des bulletins marque la continuité avec les études précédentes sur les élections législatives et européennes, puisque c’est la huitième fois qu’il est procédé à un échantillonnage des bulletins réels pour les élections législatives. Cette analyse permet, d’une part, d’évaluer les proximités entre les partis eux-mêmes et, d’autre part, de mesurer les performances des politiques électorales personnelles des candidats, indépendamment de leurs affiliations personnelles. Nouveauté en 2009, il a été étudié également les bulletins pour les élections européennes. [less ▲]

This paper investigates how technological distance between firms affects their network of R\&D alliances. Our theoretic model assumes that the benefit of an alliance between two firms is given by their technological distance. This benefit-distance relationship determines the ego-network of each firm as well as the overall network structure. Empirical relevance is confirmed for the bio-pharmaceutical industry. Although we find that the network structure is largely explained by firm size, technological distance determines the positioning of firms in the network. [less ▲]

This publication attempts to draw a portrait of young people living in Europe. ‘Youth in Europe’ is based on data available at EU level, using mainly a broad selection of harmonised data sources available at Eurostat. The reader will find statistical information on a wide range of topics relating to youth in Europe, including demographic aspects (ageing of the population, founding a family), health and living conditions, education and starting out in working life, and participation in cultural and social activities. The data presented in ‘Youth in Europe’ show that the situation of young people differs considerably from one country to another, which can be explained by a range of cultural, social and economic factors. This publication aims to encourage further interest and research into the fascinating world of young people in order to better understand the Europe of today and of tomorrow. [less ▲]

Switch equivalence for transformation systems has been successfully used in many domains for the analysis of concurrent behaviour. When using graph transformation as modelling framework for these systems the concept of negative application conditions (NACs) is widely used -- in particular for the specification of operational semantics. In this paper we show that switch equivalence can be improved essentially for the analysis of systems with NACs by our new concept of permutation equivalence. Two derivations respecting all NACs are called permutation-equivalent if they are switch-equivalent disregarding the NACs. In fact, there are permutation-equivalent derivations which are not switch-equivalent with NACs. As main result of the paper, we solve the following problem: Given a derivation with NACs, we can efficiently derive all permutation-equivalent derivations to the given one by static analysis. The results are based on extended techniques for subobject transformation systems which have been introduced recently. [less ▲]

Work is a source of income, professional satisfaction and social contact. However, work is not always easy to combine with family life and other private activities, especially for parents. Reconciling both demands is an important issue for many citizens in the European Union. This publication looks at various aspects of the issue of reconciliation of work with family life. It features discussions of the data sources used and gives an overview of the differences in the relevant legal arrangements in the Member States. The report starts with a description of the labour market situation, including developments in part-time work, fixed-term contracts and household composition. The following chapters cover working hours with special attention to unpaid family work, childcare and other care services, maternity and parental leave and flexibility in working time arrangements, including atypical working times such as working at night or at the weekend.

Triple graph grammars (TGGs) are a formal and intuitive concept for the specification of model transformations. Their main advantage is an automatic derivation of operational rules for bidirectional model transformations, which simplifies specification and enhances usability as well as consistency. In this paper we continue previous work on the formal definition of model transformations based on triple graph rules with negative application conditions (NACs). The new notion of partial source consistency enables us to construct consistent model transformations on-the-fly instead of analyzing consistency of completed model transformations. We show the crucial properties termination, correctness and completeness (including NAC-consistency) for the model transformations resulting from our construction. Moreover we define parallel independence for model transformation steps which allows us to perform partial-order reduction in order to improve efficiency. The results are applicable to several relevant model transformations and in particular to our example transformation from class diagrams to database models. [less ▲]

Model transformations are a key concept for modular and distributed model driven development. In this context, triple graph grammars have been investigated and applied to several case studies and they show a convenient combination of formal and intuitive specification abilities. Especially the automatic derivation of forward and backward transformations out of just one specified set of rules for the integrated model simplifies the specification and enhances usability as well as consistency. Since negative application conditions (NACs) are key ingredient for many model transformations based on graph transformation we embed them in the concept of triple graph grammars. As a first main result we can extend the composition/decomposition result for triple graph grammars to the case with NACs. This allows us to show completeness and correctness of model transformations based on rules with NACs and furthermore, we can extend the characterization of information preserving model transformations to the case with NACs. The presented results are applicable to several model transformations and in particular to the well known model transformation from class diagrams to relational data bases, which we present as running example with NACs.

Success and efficiency of software and system design fundamentally relies on its models. The more they are based on formal methods the more they can be automatically transformed to execution models and finally to implementation code. This paper presents model transformation and model integration as specific problem within bidirectional model transformation, which has shown to support various purposes, such as analysis, optimization, and code generation. The main purpose of model integration is to establish correspondence between various models, especially between source and target models. From the analysis point of view, model integration supports correctness checks of syntactical dependencies between different views and models. The overall concept is based on the algebraic approach to triple graph grammars, which are widely used for model transformation. The main result shows the close relationship between model transformation and model integration. For each model transformation sequence there is a unique model integration sequence and vice versa. This is demonstrated by a quasi-standard example for model transformation between class models and relational data base models. [less ▲]

This paper develops a new open-economy endogenous growth model where technology diffusion allows for a stable and non-degenerate world income distribution. In accordance with the empirical literature, I find that country characteristics such as the social infrastructure, the degree of openness, the investment rate, population growth, the level of human capital, or growth policies such as subsidies to innovation investments explain a country’s position in the eventual world income distribution. Club convergence in growth rates can be traced back to a country’s openness and to a minimum required level of human capital. [less ▲]

E-government services usually process large amounts of confidential data. Therefore, security requirements for the communication between components have to be adhered in a strict way. Hence, it is of main interest that developers can analyze their modularized models of actual systems and that they can detect critical patterns. For this purpose, we present a general and formal framework for critical pattern detection and user-driven correction as well as possibilities for automatic analysis and verification at meta-model level. The technique is based on the formal theory of graph transformation, which we extend to transformations of type graphs with inheritance within a type graph hierarchy. We apply the framework to specify relevant security requirements. The extended theory is shown to fulfil the conditions of a weak adhesive HLR category allowing us to transfer analysis techniques and results shown for this abstract framework of graph transformation. In particular, we discuss how confluence analysis and parallelization can be used to enable parallel critical pattern detection and elimination. [less ▲]

Process models of graph transformation systems are based on the concept of occurrence grammars, which are a generalization of Petri net processes given by occurrence nets. Recently, subobject transformation systems were proposed as an abstract framework for occurrence grammars in adhesive categories, but they are restricted to monomorphic matches for transformation steps. In this paper we review the construction of STSs as processes for plain graph grammars and present an extension to weak adhesive HLR categories with non-monomorphic matching, such that e.g. attributed graph grammars are included.

Triple graph grammars have been applied and implemented as a formal basis for model transformations in a variety of application areas. They convince by special abilities in automatic derivation of forward backward and several other transformations out of just one specified set of rules for the integrated model defined by a triple of graphs. While many case studies and all implementations, which state that they are using triple graph grammars, do not use triples of graphs this paper presents the justification for many of them. It shows a one to one correspondence between triple graph grammars and suitable plain graph grammars, thus results and benefits of the triple case can be transferred to the plain case. Main results show the relationship between both graph transformation approaches, syntactical correctness of model transformations based on triple graph grammars and a sound and complete condition for functional behaviour. Theoretical results are elaborated on an intuitive case study for a model transformation from class diagrams to database models. [less ▲]

Marginal income taxes may have an insurance effect by decreasing the effective fluctuations of after-tax individual income. By compressing the idiosyncratic component of personal income fluctuations, higher marginal taxes should be negatively correlated with the dispersion of consumption across households, a necessary implication of an insurance effect of taxation. Our study empirically examines this negative correlation, exploiting the ample variation of state taxes across US states. We show that taxes are negatively correlated with the consumption dispersion of the within-state distribution of non-durable consumption and that this correlation is robust. [less ▲]

The present Anglo-American system of corporate control is said to be a random result of market forces, the strong influence of which resulted from a weak state, and undefined principles in the state's economic policy until the 1930s. In contrast, in Continental Europe, strong states with a tendency to interfere with market forces were established. The events resulting in these two divergent systems must be analysed in order to understand what predominant factors catalyzed the development of the current corporate governance structures. Though values other than religious principles are likely to prevail today, this paper posits that religious foundations provide a sound explanation for the developmental path of corporate governance in Anglo-America and Continental Europe. Further, it assesses the impact of such an ethical theory of corporate governance history on contemporary convergence debate. In particular, it asserts that ethical restraints may explain path dependency, and that such an ethical path dependency is more likely in times of economic decline than in times of economic growth. Finally, it holds that, in homogeneous societies, ethics can in many respects substitute for good law. [less ▲]
