Paiements extérieurs et crises de dette : Vers un nouvel ordre monétaire international?

Zio, Adonija ; Bradley, Xavier (Dir.) ; Cencini, Alvaro (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020ECO013.

La crise de la dette souveraine constitue l'une des crises les plus récurrentes du système capitaliste. Ces crises apparaissent après une forte accumulation de dette par les pays. Le paiement de cette dette provoque le plus souvent des déséquilibres internes et des instabilités financières. Les études menées sur la question privilégient l'approche microéconomique et expliquent que le...

Framing sustainability in public procurement by typologizing sustainability indicators : the case of Switzerland

Knebel, Sebastian ; Seele, Peter

In: Journal of public procurement, 2021, p. 22 p

Purpose: Sustainable public procurement (SPP) lacks common means for its operationalization within legislative latitudes. Through the translation of sustainability indicators (SIs) from CSR and corporate sustainability reporting into the needs of SPP, this paper aims to support the framing process of sustainability in public procurement. This paper does so along with the case of Switzerland....

Furtum sacrilegum : the "Holy Heads" of Peter and Paul and their reliquaries in the Lateran

Mondini, Daniela

In: The Basilica of Saint John Lateran to 1600, 2020, p. 345-378

The “Holy Heads” of Peter and Paul, attested in the 11th century within a secondary altar of the Laurentius-Oratory in the Patriarchium Lateranense and later on inside the main altar of the Sancta Sanctorum, increased their status exponentially after having been transferred by Pope Urban V (1368-70) into the Lateran Basilica. Embedded in two huge, lavishly decorated anthropomorphic...

Analyzing system performance with probabilistic performance annotations

Rogora, Daniele ; Carzaniga, Antonio (Dir.) ; Soulé, Robert (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO024.

Understanding the performance of software is complicated. For several performance metrics, in addition to the algorithmic complexity, one must also consider the dynamics of running a program within different combinations of hardware and software environments. Such dynamical aspects are not visible from the code alone, and any kind of static analysis falls short. For example, in reality, the...

Approximation algorithms for survivable network design

Jabal Ameli, Afrouz ; Grandoni, Fabrizio (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021INFO005.

Many relevant discrete optimization problems are believed to be hard to solve efficiently (i.e. they cannot be solved in polynomial time unless P=NP). An approximation algorithm is one of the ways to tackle these hard optimization problems. These algorithms have polynomial running time and compute a feasible solution whose value is within a proven factor (approximation factor) of the optimal...

Vitamin D status among male late adolescents living in southern Switzerland : role of body composition and lifestyle

Rabufetti, Andrea ; Milani, Gregorio P. ; Lava, Sebastiano A. G. ; Edefonti, Valeria ; Bianchetti, Mario G. ; Stettbacher, Andreas ; Muggli, Franco ; Simonetti, Giacomo

In: Nutrients, 2019, vol. 11, no. 11, p. 2727

Background: Poor vitamin D status is a worldwide health problem. Yet, knowledge about vitamin D status among adolescents in Southern Europe is limited. This study investigated concentrations and modulating factors of vitamin D in a healthy population of male late adolescents living in Southern Switzerland. Methods: All apparently healthy subjects attending for the medical evaluation before the...

The inferential configuration of arguments : the Argumentum Model of Topics

Greco, Sara ; Rigotti, Eddo

In: Inference in argumentation: a topics-based approach to argument schemes, 2019, vol. 34, p. 207-245

In this chapter, our proposal for the analysis of argument schemes as based on the tradition of topoi-loci called the Argumentum Model of Topics (AMT) is presented (first introduced in Rigotti and Greco 2006). We explain how the AMT represents the inferential configuration of arguments and discuss innovative aspects of the model in relation to other contemporary accounts. After having outlined...

Towards an integrated argumentative approach to multimodal critical discourse analysis : Evidence from the portrayal of refugees and immigrants in Greek newspapers

Serafis, Dimitris ; Greco, Sara ; Pollaroli, Chiara ; Jermini Martinez Soria, Chiara

In: Critical discourse studies, 2020, vol. 17, no. 5, p. 545-565

This paper proposes a methodological synthesis in order to study multimodal media discourse and argumentation in the context of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ in Greece. It follows the framework of Multimodal Critical Discourse Analysis, integrating this with argumentation studies, with a particular emphasis on the analysis of inference. Our data come from the Greek newspapers Kathimerini...
