We consider nonparametric density estimation for interarrival times density of a renewal process. If it is possible to get continuous observation of the process, then a projection estimator in an orthonormal functional basis can be built; we choose to work on R+ with the Laguerre basis. Nonstandard decompositions can lead to bounds on the mean inte...

This paper studies the boundary behaviour at mechanical equilibrium at the ends of a finite interval of a class of systems of interacting particles with monotone decreasing repulsive force. Our setting covers pileups of dislocations, dislocation dipoles and dislocation walls. The main challenge is to control the nonlocal nature of the pairwise part...

We approximate an elliptic problem with oscillatory coefficients using a problem of the same type, but with constant coefficients. We deliberately take an engineering perspective, where the information on the oscillatory coefficients in the equation can be incomplete. A theoretical foundation of the approach in the limit of infinitely small oscilla...

This paper is a companion to a series of papers devoted to the study of the spectral distribution of the free Jacobi process associated with a single projection. Actually, we notice that the flow solves a radial L\"owner equation and as such, the general theory of L\"owner equations implies that it is univalent in some connected region in the open ...

Results from the LHC put severe constraints on models of new physics. This includes constraints on the Higgs sector from the precise measurement of the mass and couplings of the 125~GeV Higgs boson, as well as limits from searches for other new particles. We present the procedure to use these constraints in micrOMEGAs by interfacing it to the exter...

We prove existence and regularity of optimal shapes for the problem$$\min\Big\{P(\Omega)+\mathcal{G}(\Omega):\ \Omega\subset D,\ |\Omega|=m\Big\},$$where $P$ denotes the perimeter, $|\cdot|$ is the volume, and the functional $\mathcal{G}$ is either one of the following:

- the Dirichlet energy $E_f$, with respect to a (possibly sign-changing) function...

Outer automorphism groups of RAAGs, denoted $Out(A_\Gamma)$, interpolate between $Out(F_n)$ and $GL_n(\mathbb{Z})$. We consider several vastness properties for which $Out(F_n)$ behaves very differently from $GL_n(\mathbb{Z})$: virtually mapping onto all finite groups, SQ-universality, virtually having an infinite dimensional space of homogeneous qu...

The paleogeographic reconstruction of the Variscan Mountains during late Carboniferous-Permian post-orogenic extension remains poorly understood, owing to the subsequent erosion and/or burial of most associated sedimentary basins during the Mesozoic. The Graissessac-Lodève Basin (southern France) preserves a thick and exceptionally complete record ...

Many disciplines, from human genetics and oncology to plant breeding, microbiology and virology, commonly face the challenge of analyzing rapidly increasing numbers of genomes. In case of Homo sapiens, the number of sequenced genomes will approach hundreds of thousands in the next few years. Simply scaling up established bioinformatics pipelines wi...

Zero-inated regression models for count data are often used in health economics to analyse demand for medical care. Indeed, excess of zeros often aects health-care utilization data. Much of the recent econometric literature on the topic has focused on univariate health-care utilization measures, such as the number of doctor visits. However, health ...
