Die Kunst des Glasmachens gehört seit dem Beginn des 15. Jahrhunderts zu den wichtigsten und erfolgreichsten Industriezweigen der Großregion. Die für die Glasherstellung benötigten Rohstoffe waren im Überfluss vorhanden, die jeweiligen Landesherren förderten die Ansiedlung der Glasmacher. Von Südlothringen aus verbreitete sich die Kunst des Glasmachens in Richtung Norden, an die Saar und nach Wallonien. Eine besondere Herausforderung für Regierende, Unternehmer (Investoren) und Arbeiter bedeutet(e) die geopolitische Lage der Glashütten im Herzen Europas, zwischen deutschem und französischem Einflussbereich. Trotz der durch zahlreiche Kriege und Grenzverschiebungen erschwerten Bedingungen entstanden am Westrand der Vogesen, im Bitscher Land, an der Saar und in Wallonien ab dem 18. Jahrhundert einige der wichtigsten, größten und innovativsten Glas- und Kristallglashütten Europas. Einige von ihnen setzen bis heute weltweit Qualitätsmaßstäbe in Handwerk und Design. [less ▲]

Since the beginning of the 15th century, glassmaking has been one of the most important and dynamic production sectors in the Greater Region. Located in the heart of Europe and divided between German and French influences, the glassworks represented (and still represent today) a major geopolitical stake. Despite conditions made difficult by successive wars and border shifts, some of the most important glass and crystal factories in Europe in terms of size, activity and innovation were created from the 18th century onwards.

The map shows the distribution of the surname Glesener / Glaser / Glasmacher in the Greater Region SaarLorLux. It is an example of the results of the FNR project "Luxemburgischer Familiennamenatlas". The Lorraine region has not yet been studied. The aim of the "Luxemburgischer Familiennamenatlas" (LFA) is to document the distribution of surnames in Luxembourg and neighbouring regions, in order to draw possible conclusions about the history of language and settlement and about historical language contact phenomena. The study also attempts to determine which surnames are typical for Luxembourg and, if applicable, how these names differ from those of the other regions studied. [less ▲]

Founded on the initiative of Father Brocquart, with the support of Governor Berlaymont, the chapel of Our Lady, Consoler of the Afflicted, became in the space of only a few years, the shrine of the Lady, Consoler of the Afflicted, has become, in the space of a few years, the most visited shrine in the the most visited shrine in the region. Its influence was such that the cult was exported to the regions bordering the duchy. In 1626, the miraculous healing of Jacques Brocquart, who was suffering from the plague, caused such a stir that pilgrims flocked from the four corners of the duchy to ask for a divine favour, even before the chapel was completed. The aim of the map is to highlight the spatial dimension of the reports on the miracles of Notre Dame de Luxembourg during the first half of the 17th century. [less ▲]

We present a theoretical model of residential growth that emphasizes 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 to both like and dislike the density of their neighbourhood, and 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 visualize 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.

The current shape of the Earth's surface is the result of a complex synergy of different factors. In addition to abiotic factors such as relief, climate, water, soil and geological texture, biotic factors such as vegetation formations, flora and fauna, and especially the influence of humans, are crucial to the appearance of the Earth's surface.

This paper presents a microeconomic model of residential location that explores the emergence of a mixed belt where residents and farmers coexist beyond a city. The model is based on integrating urban economics with cellular automata in order to simulate equilibrium patterns in 2D and through time. Households commute to a CBD and enjoy neighbourhood externalities that are a function of both local residential density and farmland, or open space. They bid on the competitive land market and locate so as to maximize utility. Incremental population growth changes the neighbourhood and leads to rent adaptations. With appropriate parameter values a mixed belt may emerge between the urban and agricultural specialized areas. Settlements within this mixed area are more or less clustered or scattered depending on preferences and neighbourhood size. [less ▲]

This article proposes a methodology for the construction and the calibration of a micro-economic urban land-use model within an extended Cellular Automata (CA) framework. The methodology is applied to processes of residential spread in a part of the commuting periphery of Brussels. The model hypothesizes that households effect on urban development, through their valuation of neighbourhood externalities. A coarse sensitivity analysis is undertaken in order to explore the relationship between household neighbourhood preferences and emerging spatial morphologies. These macro-structures are measured with different indices in order to parameterize the model. [less ▲]
