Proprietes combinatoires de certaines familles d'automates cellulaires

Rossin, Dominique 18 December 2000 (has links) (PDF)
L'etude et la comprehension de phenomenes naturels qu'il<br />semble difficile de predire, tels les<br />tremblements de terre et les raz de maree intriguent depuis quelques<br />temps un certain nombre de physiciens. En effet, il semble que les<br />modeles classiques bases sur des fonctions d'etat continues<br />peuvent difficilement expliquer les phenomenes observes.<br /><br />En 1987, Bak, Tang et Wiesenfeld introduisent un modele base<br /> sur un automate particulier dont l'etude experimentale montre<br /> des caracteristiques proches de celles observees pour des<br /> tremblements de terre. Cet automate est appele automate du tas de sable.<br /><br /> En 1990, Dhar, Ruelle, Sen et<br />Verma etudient les proprietes mathematiques<br />de l'automate du tas de sable. Cet article jette les bases d'une théorie algebrique et combinatoire des<br />etats critiques du systeme en montrant que ceux-ci forment un<br />groupe abelien fini.<br /><br />Cette these porte essentiellement sur l'etude de ce groupe d'un<br />point de vue algorithmique, combinatoire et algebrique. Nous<br />etudions dans un premier temps la complexite de l'operateur de<br />groupe. Puis nous etudions le groupe sur quelques familles de<br />graphes connues avant de montrer que le groupe d'un graphe planaire<br />est isomorphe au groupe de chacun de ses duaux geometriques.<br /><br />Nous montrons comment associer à un groupe abelien fini un<br />idéal de polynomes et dans le cas du groupe du Tas de Sable, nous<br />donnerons une caracterisation de l'operateur de groupe en terme de<br />reduction de polynome.

Perfil bioquímico, metabolismo oxidativo e qualidade da carne de cordeiros submetidos ao transporte rodoviário tratados com vitamina E / Biochemical profile, oxidative metabolism and meat quality of lambs subjected to road and treated with vitamin E

Giovanna Rocha Nunes 02 August 2013 (has links)
O presente estudo teve por objetivo avaliar os efeitos da administração intramuscular de alfa-tocoferol (vitamina E) sobre marcadores de estresse fisiológico e oxidativo, além de características relacionadas à qualidade da carne de cordeiros submetidos a transporte rodoviário de curta duração. Vinte e quatro cordeiros, mestiços das raças Santa Inês e Dorper, com idade e peso vivo médios ao abate de 138 dias e 43,6 kg, respectivamente, foram distribuídos em três grupos experimentais nos quais receberam, aos seis e três dias antes do transporte, pela via intramuscular, uma aplicação de solução fisiológica; 10 UI; ou 20 UI de acetato de DL-alfa-tocoferol, por quilo de peso metabólico. O transporte teve duração de quatro horas e na chegada ao abatedouro, os cordeiros desembarcaram em curral de espera, onde permaneceram por 19 horas até o momento do abate. Nos momentos T0 (imediatamente antes do embarque e transporte); T1 (imediatamente após transporte e desembarque); T2 (três horas após transporte e desembarque) e T3 (imediatamente antes do abate) foi aferida a temperatura retal e coletadas amostras de sangue por punção da veia jugular para determinação das concentrações séricas de ureia, creatinina, albumina, proteína total, colesterol e cortisol; concentrações plasmáticas de glicose, beta-hidroxibutirato (BHB), lactato e ácidos graxos não esterificados (AGNE); atividade sérica da creatinofosfoquinase (CK); contagem de hemácias e leucócitos totais; relação neutrófilos:linfócitos; volume globular (VG); atividades eritrocitárias da superóxido dismutase (SOD), glutationa peroxidase (GPx) e glutationa redutase (GR); concentração de glutationa reduzida (GSH); status antioxidante total do soro (TAS) e concentração de substâncias reativas ao ácido tiobarbitúrico (TBARS). Após o abate, as carcaças foram mantidas por 24 horas sob refrigeração a 2°C para que pudessem ser determinados o pH (pH24h) e coloração (L*, a*, b*) do músculo Longissimus dorsi, além de coletadas amostras para posterior avaliação da força de cisalhamento (FC), perdas de peso por cozimento (PPC) e produtos da oxidação lipídica após 30 dias de congelamento (TBARS 30). Houve efeito de interação entre momento e tratamento para lactato, sendo observado efeito linear de tratamento no momento T2, com maiores (P= 0,0111) valores dessa variável nos animais que receberam 20 UI de vitamina E. Ocorreu efeito linear de tratamento (P=0,0149) sobre os valores de TAS. Foi observado efeito de desvio da linearidade para albumina, L* e b*. Animais que receberam 10 UI de vitamina E apresentaram menores concentrações de albumina (P= 0,0447) e maiores valores (P=0,0042 e P=0,0082) de L* e b*. Com exceção da temperatura retal e GR, foi observado efeito de momento para todos os outros marcadores de estresse fisiológico e oxidativo. O transporte rodoviário de curta duração, mesmo quando realizado de maneira adequada, gera estresse nos animais. Estímulos potencialmente nocivos no momento prévio ao abate levaram a estresse de maior intensidade que aquele oriundo do transporte. A administração intramuscular de alfa-tocoferol aumentou o status antioxidante total do soro de cordeiros submetidos a transporte rodoviário de curta duração, entretanto não foi capaz de minimizar as alterações decorrentes do estresse fisiológico e oxidativo e de melhorar a qualidade da carne destes animais. / The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of intramuscular alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) administration on markers of oxidative and physiological stress, as well characteristics related to meat quality of lambs subjected to road short transport. Twenty-four lambs, Santa Inês and Dorper crossbred, age and average live weight at slaughter of 138 days and 43.6 kg, respectively, were divided into three experimental groups. Each group received an intramuscular application of saline solution or 10 IU or 20 IU of DL-alpha-tocopherol per kg of metabolic body weight at six and three days before transportation. The transportation lasted four hours until the slaughterhouse. After unloading, lambs rested in pen for 19 hours until the time of slaughter. At T0 (immediately prior to boarding and transportation), T1 (immediately after transport and unloading), T2 (three hours after transporting and landing) and T3 (immediately before slaughter) rectal temperature was measured and blood samples were collected by jugular vein puncture for determination of serum urea, creatinine, albumin, total protein, cholesterol and cortisol; plasma concentrations of glucose, beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), lactate and non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA); serum activities of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) and creatine kinase (CK), erythrocyte and total leukocyte count, ratio neutrophil: lymphocytes, packed cell volume (PCV), erythrocyte activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and glutathione reductase (GR), concentration of reduced glutathione (GSH), serum total antioxidant status (TAS) and the concentration of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS). After slaughter, carcasses were kept for 24 hours under refrigeration at 2 °C and were analyzed for Longissimus Dorsi pH (pH24h) and color (L *, a *, b *), and collected samples for subsequent evaluation of shear force (SF), cooking weight loss (CWL) and products of lipid oxidation after 30 days of freezing (TBARS 30). There was an interaction between time and treatment for lactate and was observed a linear effect at the time T2, with increased (P = 0.0111) values of this variable in the animals receiving 20 IU of vitamin E. A linear effect of treatment (P = 0.0149) on the TAS values was observed. Deviation from linearity effect for albumin, L * and b * were seen. Animals that received 10 IU of vitamin E showed lower concentrations of albumin (P = 0.0447) and higher (P = 0.0042 and P = 0.0082) L * and b * values. Except for rectal temperature and GR, moment effect was observed for all other markers of oxidative and physiological stress. The short road transportation, even when done properly, produces stress in animals. Potentially harmful stimuli at the time prior to slaughter led to higher stress intensity than that coming from the transport. Intramuscular administration of alpha-tocopherol increased serum total antioxidant status of lambs subjected to short duration road transport, however was not able to minimize changes arising from physiological and oxidative stress and improve the meat quality of these animals.

Spectrum-efficient cognitive MIMO relaying : a practical design perspective / Le relayage MIMO cognitif à grande efficacité spectrale : une perspective de design pratique

El moutaouakkil, Zakaria 12 October 2018 (has links)
Le relayage cognitif multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) hérite l’efficacité spectrale de la radiocognitive et les systèmes de relayage MIMO, apportant ainsi des gains prometteurs en termes de débit dedonnées et de fiabilité pour les futures communications sans fil et mobiles. Dans cette thèse, nous concevons et évaluons des schémas pratiques d’émetteurs et de récepteurs pour des systèmes de relayage MIMO cognitifs qui peuvent être mis en oeuvre à moindre coût. Tout d'abord, nous réduisons l'affaiblissement du débit du mode half-duplex du relayage MIMO amplify-and-forward non-orthogonale(NAF) large bande avec demande de répétition automatique (ARQ). Différemment des travaux de recherche existants, le protocole de relayage proposé ne nécessite que la durée de transmission d’un seul paquet sur des canaux sélectifs en fréquence. De plus, nous proposons une conception de réception itérative à complexité réduite pour cette classe de protocoles, entraînant ainsi une amélioration significative des performances de transmission de bout-en-bout. Deuxièmement, nous nous concentrons sur les systèmes de relayage cognitive de partage du spectre single-input multiple-output (SIMO) et évaluons l’impact des contraintes d’interférence instantanée et statistique sur la qualité de leur probabilité de coupure. Nos résultats révèlent que l’imposition d’une contrainte statistique sur la puissance d’émission du système secondaire est plus favorable que son adversaire consommatrice de spectre. Troisièmement, nous capitalisons sur notre deuxième contribution pour étudier les systèmes de relayage MIMO decode-and-forward (DF) cognitifs utilisant la sélection d'antenne à l’émission (TAS) ainsi que le maximum-ratio combining (MRC) à la réception. Basés sur la maximisation du rapport signal-sur-bruit (SNR) ou du rapport signal-sur-interférence-plus-bruit (SINR), nos résultats de probabilité de coupure nouvellement dérivés pour les deux stratégies proposées de TAS démontre l’optimalité du système de sélection d’antenne basé sur le SINR par rapport aux effets néfastes d’interférence mutuelle dans les systèmes de relayage MIMO DF cognitifs. / Cognitive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relaying inherits the spectrum usage efficiency from both cognitive radio and MIMO relay systems, thereby bearing promising gains in terms of data rate and reliability for future wireless and mobile communications. In this dissertation, we design and evaluate practical transmitter and receiver schemes for cognitive MIMO relay systems that can readily be implemented at a lower cost. First, we reduce the multiplexing loss due the half-duplex operation in non orthogonal amplify-and-forward (NAF) MIMO relay broadband transmissions with automatic repeat request(ARQ). Different from existing research works, the proposed relaying protocol requires only one packet duration to operate over frequency-selective block-fading relay channels. Further, we propose a low complexityiterative receiver design for this class of protocols which results in significant enhancement of the end-to-end transmission performance. Second, we focus on cognitive underlay single-input multiple-output (SIMO) relay systems and evaluate the impact of instantaneous and statistical interference constraints on their outage performance. Our results reveal that imposing a statistical interference constraint on the secondary system transmit power is most favored than its spectrum-consuming counter part. Third, we capitalize on our second contribution to investigate cost-effective transmission schemes for cognitive MIMO decode-and-forward (DF) relaying systems employing transmit-antenna selection (TAS) along with maximum-ratio combining (MRC) at the transmitter and receiver sides, respectively. Driven by maximizing either the received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) or signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR), our newly derived outage performance results pertaining to both proposed TAS strategies are shown to entail an involved derivation roadmap yet demonstrate the optimality of the SINR-driven TAS against the detrimental effect of mutual interference incognitive MIMO DF relay systems.
