GEASI : Geodesic-based earliest activation sites identification in cardiac models

Grandits, Thomas ; Effland, Alexander ; Pock, Thomas ; Krause, Rolf ; Plank, Gernot ; Pezzuto, Simone

In: International journal for numerical methods in biomedical engineering, 2021, vol. 37, no. 8, p. 30

The identification of the initial ventricular activation sequence is a critical step for the correct personalization of patient- specific cardiac models. In healthy conditions, the Purkinje network is the main source of the electrical activation, but under pathological conditions the so-called earliest activation sites (EASs) are possibly sparser and more localized. Yet, their number, location...

The importance of assessing positive and beneficial impacts of alien species

Vimercati, Giovanni ; Kumschick, Sabrina ; Probert, Anna F. ; Volery, Lara ; Bacher, Sven

In: NeoBiota, 2020, vol. 62, p. 525–545

Extensive literature is available on the diversity and magnitude of impacts that alien species cause on recipient systems. Alien species may decrease or increase attributes of ecosystems (e.g. total biomass or species diversity), thus causing negative and positive environmental impacts. Alien species may also negatively or positively impact attributes linked to local human communities (e.g....

Decent Work for All : Rethinking Decent Work in the Context of South Africa

Ludwig, Carmen ; Webster, Edward

In: sozialpolitik.ch, 2020, vol. 2, no. 3, p. Article: 2.3

The authors argue that there is a need to rethink what a commitment to decent work would mean in the context of South Africa, a country with a large number of long term unemployed. Drawing on their experience of researching work in South Africa, they highlight the relevance of the agency of workers for the progressive realisation of a decent work agenda. The lukewarm response of the government to...

Perspectives on the measurement problem : perspectives from the measurement problem

Hansen, Arne ; Wolf, Stefan (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO008.

In quantum mechanics, the measurement problem is commonly regarded as reason for deep concern. It seems that, either, the problem can be solved and there is hope for quantum mechanics, or the theory better be left behind in search of another one. We investigate the prospect of finding a solution to the measurement problem—within quantum mechanics, as well as in theoretical frameworks beyond...

Palynological study of carbonated mounds during the holocene along the atlantic and mediterranean moroccan margins

Rachid, Jihad ; Hssaida, Touria ; Hamoumi, Naima ; Terhzaz, Loubna ; Spezzaferri, Silvia ; Frank, Norbert ; Daghor, Lamia

In: Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology, 2020, vol. 278, p. 104213

A palynological study of carbonate mounds of Atlantic and Mediterranean Moroccan margins was conducted on sediment boxcores MD13-3441, MD13-3456, MD13-3461, MD13-3465, MD13-3468 collected during the oceanographic cruise MD 194/Eurofleet - GATEWAY, which took place on June 2013.The organic remaining revealed a dominance of dinoflagellate cysts over the continental fraction, which showed very...
