Abstract:
In this study, punching force, stress, and energy of Yalova 12 and Banko onion varieties were examined. These varieties are grown in Bursa region and having an important place for exporting in our country. The effects of storage (right after harvest and after one month of storage) and the position of onion (radial and axial) along with the variety of onion were examined for punching the onions. According to the results, the variety had no effects on punching, but the position of onion was found important statistically. It was found that axial punching requires more force, stress and energy than radial punching.

Abstract:
We study the relative position of three subspaces in a separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space. In the finite-dimensional case, Brenner described the general position of three subspaces completely. We extend it to a certain class of three subspaces in an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space. We also give a partial result which gives a condition on a system to have a (dense) decomposition containing a pentagon.

Abstract:
The relative position of one subfactor of a factor has been proved quite rich since the work of Jones. We shall show that the theory of relative position of several subspaces of a separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space is also rich. In finite-dimensonal case, Gelfand and Ponomarev gave a complete classification of indecomposable systems of four subspaces. We construct exotic examples of indecomposable systems of four subspaces in infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. We extend their Coxeter functors and defect using Fredholm index. There exist close connections with strongly irreducible operators and transitive lattices.

Abstract:
Context. We detected in 2009 a giant, close-by planet orbiting {\beta} Pic, a young star surrounded with a disk, extensively studied for more than 20 years. We showed that if located on an inclined orbit, the planet could explain several peculiarities of {\beta} Pictoris system. However, the available data did not permit to measure the inclination of {\beta} Pic b with respect to the disk, and in particular to establish in which component of the disk - the main, extended disk or the inner inclined component/disk-, the planet was located. Comparison between the observed planet position and the disk orientation measured on previous imaging data was not an option because of potential biases in the measurements. Aims. Our aim is to measure precisely the planet location with respect to the dust disk using a single high resolution image, and correcting for systematics or errors that degrades the precision of the disk and planet relative position measurements. Methods. We gathered new NaCo data at Ks band, with a set-up optimized to derive simultaneously the orientation(s) of the disk(s) and that of the planet. Results. We show that the projected position of {\beta} Pic b is above the midplane of the main disk. With the current data and knowledge on the system, this implies that {\beta} Pic b cannot be located in the main disk. The data rather suggest the planet being located in the inclined component.

Abstract:
Okra is a plant rich in nutrients and is very well
consumed in Côte d’Ivoire. Despite its many benefits, the production
of this vegetable is still weak in our country. The reasons for this include
the inadequate selection of varieties, the high cost of inputs and the poverty
of the soil for its cultivation. One of the alternatives for sustained
production is to solve the problem of soil fertility. In the case of our work,
the aim is to improve the yield of okra. To achieve this goal, experiments were
undertaken to evaluate the impact of activated charcoal on morphological
parameters of a local okra variety. For this purpose, the charcoal used was
activated in three different times (activation time equal to 0 days, 15 days
and 30 days). The experimental device used is a split-plot with three repetitions,
each comprising 12 elementary plots. The various charcoals were buried the same
day. Then, the seedling was done with two positions including outside position
and inside position. Observations were made on 360 plants. An analysis of the
variances was carried out on the morphological parameters. Fruit mass is the
variable most influenced by activated charcoal. Thus, the greatest value of the
mass was obtained with the charcoal CA0, with outside position.

Abstract:
We revisit the back-action of emitted photons on the motion of the relative position of two cold atoms. We show that photon recoil resulting from the spontaneous emission can induce the localization of the relative position of the two atoms through the entanglement between the spatial motion of individual atoms and their emitted photons. The result provides a more realistic model for the analysis of the environment-induced localization of a macroscopic object.

Abstract:
Localization is a fundamental challenge for any wireless network of nodes, in particular when the nodes are mobile. We present an extension of the classical Multidimensional scaling (MDS) for an anchorless network of mobile nodes, wherein the solutions to the time-varying relative node positions are shown to lie in the derivatives of the time-varying inter-nodal pairwise distances. Moreover, we show that the relative position of a mobile node at each time instance is only dependent on the initial relative position, relative velocity and a common rotation matrix of the respective node, which are estimated using MDS-like and least squares estimators. Simulations are conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed solutions and the results are presented.

Abstract:
This editorial describes the process of periodic evaluation by CAPES, based on commercial indices proposed by companies such as the ISI FI by Thomson Reuters and SCImago by Scopus and public indices as proposed by SciELO and other freely calculated indices based on Google Scholar and investigates the impact position of the journal Ambiente & Agua compared with journals from the SciELO base. Results show that Ambiente & Agua is in the right path in the search for quality. Its editorial board strongly recommends that Brazilian public scientific agencies consider tools that are cost free and have large coverage for impact evaluation to allow the impact assessment of a range of emerging journals in a common and wide basis for all scientific journals.

Abstract:
We introduce the notion of Artin motives and cohomological motives over a scheme X. Given a cohomological motive M over X, we construct its punctual weight zero part $\omega^0_X(M)$ as the universal Artin motive mapping to M. We use this to define a motive E_X over X which is an invariant of the singularities of X. The first half of the paper is devoted to the study of the functors $\omega^0_X$ and the computation of the motives E_X. In the second half of the paper, we develop the application to locally symmetric varieties. Specifically, let Y be a locally symmetric variety and denote by p:W-->Z the projection of its reductive Borel-Serre compactification W onto its Baily-Borel Satake compactification Z. We show that $Rp_*(\Q_W)$ is naturally isomorphic to the Betti realization of the motive E_Z, where Z is viewed as a scheme. In particular, the direct image of E_Z along the projection of Z to Spec(C) gives a motive whose Betti realization is naturally isomorphic to the cohomology of W.

Abstract:
Nucleon recoil polarization in electromagnetic reactions with two-nucleon emission is discussed for both (${\vec e},e'{\vec N}N$) and (${\vec \gamma},{\vec N}N$). Numerical results are given for exclusive two-nucleon knockout reactions from $^{16}$O in a theoretical model where final-state interactions, one-body and two-body currents, and the effect of correlations in the initial pair wave function are included.
