Een spiraal van rechthoeken rond een vierkant
Een spiraal van rechthoeken rond een vierkant
Sinds enkele jaren ben ik op zoek naar eenvoudige wiskundige en fysische problemen die onverwacht gerelateerd zijn met het getal \(\pi\). In The bouncing balls and pi beschreef ik eerder al hoe de opeenvolgende decimalen van \(\pi\) kunnen berekend worden door twee ballen volledig elastisch tegen elkaar en tegen een muur te laten botsen. In dit artikel zal ik aantonen hoe het getal \(\pi\) tevoorschijn komt door een oneindige serie rechthoeken met oppervlakte 1 spiraalsgewijze aan elkaar te kleven. In een veralgemening van dit probleem duikt op een natuurlijke wijze de gammafunctie en de formule van Stirling op.

In most corruption scandals, the use of front companies for money laundering is almost ubiquitous. This work proposes to apply image classification to detect such organizations, through the use of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), namely the AlexNet architecture. The images are obtained by address search in Google Street View API, and the resulting classification will be further used along with other features to detect front com- panies in order to help the auditors from the Ministry of Transparency and Office of the Comptroller General (CGU, in Portuguese). To this moment, we applied classification to almost 15 thousand suppliers scenes with active contracts with the Brazilian Government until September 2016, obtained through data matching between the Government Purchases database and the Brazilian Federal Revenue Office database (more recent scenes should be added as this work progresses). Preliminary results with a pre-trained AlexNet CNN show the need for developing new scene classes more suited to the Brazilian context. In order to do this, we propose to apply clustering algorithms in features extracted from the last fully-connected layer of this net. The classes obtained will be used to fine-tune the AlexNet CNN for future classification, through the use of training from scratch or fine tuning techniques.

Bitume ou Bocage? Zone à Défendre ! L'Histoire d'un Territoire en Lutte
Ce livret retrace l'histoire de la lutte contre le projet de l'aéroport international du Grand Ouest, à Notre-Dame-Des-Landes à une vingtaine de kilomètres au nord de Nantes, en apportant des arguments pour expliquer les raisons d'être et les motivations du mouvement de la résistance. Il est rédigé à l'origine pour accompagner le jeu de plateau coopératif "Zone à Défendre" .

Analyzing elliptically polarized light using Fresnel Rhomb
Analyzing elliptically polarized light using Fresnel Rhomb
The aim of the experiment is to study elliptically polarized light using a Fresnel rhomb and to determine the ratio of semi major axis to the semi minor axis of the various elliptically polarised light forms for different angles of plane polarised incidence at the rhomb

POSTER SOCHIAS 2017: Blazars study with the 40m telescope
POSTER SOCHIAS 2017: Blazars study with the 40m telescope
Blazars are a type of Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN), characterized by the emission of a relativistic jet that points close to our line of sight. They are extremely powerful, variable emitters from radio to gamma-ray wavelengths. By cross-correlating light-curves from different energies, it is possible to determine the physical condition of the blazar emitting region, i.e. mechanism, morphology, distance from block hole to the actual emission, etc. In 2007, the 40m telescope at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO) embarked on a new research campaign. In support of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, the OVRO 40m telescope is monitoring more than 1800 blazars twice per week. In 2014, a new Ku-band spectropolarimeter receiver, KuPol, was installed on the 40m telescope with the aim of elucidating about potential spectral fluctuations that may arise during the flaring events. In this poster, we will present relevant information and preliminar results from KuPol and the actual status of its calibration, and also as well as the current state of the PSD analysis, where we are applying Fourier Transform to the signals.
