Stability of Synchronization Clusters and Seizurability in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
Agostina Palmigiano, Jesús Pastor, Rafael García de Sola, Guillermo J. Ortega
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0041799
Abstract: Purpose Identification of critical areas in presurgical evaluations of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy is the most important step prior to resection. According to the “epileptic focus model”, localization of seizure onset zones is the main task to be accomplished. Nevertheless, a significant minority of epileptic patients continue to experience seizures after surgery (even when the focus is correctly located), an observation that is difficult to explain under this approach. However, if attention is shifted from a specific cortical location toward the network properties themselves, then the epileptic network model does allow us to explain unsuccessful surgical outcomes. Methods The intraoperative electrocorticography records of 20 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy were analyzed in search of interictal synchronization clusters. Synchronization was analyzed, and the stability of highly synchronized areas was quantified. Surrogate data were constructed and used to statistically validate the results. Our results show the existence of highly localized and stable synchronization areas in both the lateral and the mesial areas of the temporal lobe ipsilateral to the clinical seizures. Synchronization areas seem to play a central role in the capacity of the epileptic network to generate clinical seizures. Resection of stable synchronization areas is associated with elimination of seizures; nonresection of synchronization clusters is associated with the persistence of seizures after surgery. Discussion We suggest that synchronization clusters and their stability play a central role in the epileptic network, favoring seizure onset and propagation. We further speculate that the stability distribution of these synchronization areas would differentiate normal from pathologic cases.
Groupoid Quantales: a non étale setting
Alessandra Palmigiano,Riccardo Re
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: It is well known that if G is an \'etale topological groupoid then its topology can be recovered as the sup-lattice generated by G-sets, i.e. by the images of local bisections. This topology has a natural structure of unital involutive quantale. We present the analogous construction for any non \'etale groupoid with sober unit space G_0. We associate a canonical unital involutive quantale with any inverse semigroup of G-sets which is also a sheaf over G_0. We introduce axiomatically the class of quantales so obtained, and revert the construction mentioned above by proving a representability theorem for this class of quantales, under a natural spatiality condition.
El Mercosur agrario: Integración para quién?
Agostina Costantino,Francisco Cantamutto
Iconos : Revista de Ciencias Sociales , 2010,
Abstract: Se estudian en este trabajo los efectos sobre la estructura agraria de la formación del Mercado Común del Sur (Mercosur). Este proceso de integración regional fue guiado por la perspectiva política del realismo periférico y dentro de un marco de regionalismo abierto, lo que consagró la apertura comercial como el aspecto más desarrollado del nuevo bloque. Este proceso tendió a favorecer a los grandes capitales. En el agro, en cambio, la agricultura familiar empezó a ser desplazar y a reforzarse un modelo concentrador y latifundista caracterizado por los monocultivos orientados a la exportación, organizado sobre relaciones capitalistas de producción.AbstractIn this work, we study the effect of the formation of the Southern Common Market (Mercosur) on the agrarian structure. This process of regional integration was guided by the peripheral realism political perspective and within the framework of open regionalism which consecrated open markets as the most developed aspect of the new block. This process tended to favor large capital. In the countryside, on the other hand, family farms began to be displaced and the large landholding model to be reinforced, characterized by monocultures oriented to export, a model organized according to capitalist production relations.
Fractal and euclidean interaction in some transmission problems FRACTAL AND EUCLIDEAN INTERACTION IN SOME TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS
Maria Agostina Vivaldi
Le Matematiche , 2007,
Abstract: In this talk some model examples of second order elliptic transmission problems with highly conductive layers will be described. Regularity and numerical results for solutions of transmission problems across fractal layers imbedded in Euclidean domains will be presented in the aim of better understanding the analytical problems which arise when fractal and Euclidean structures mutually interact.

Epistemic Updates on Algebras
Alexander A Kurz,Alessandra A Palmigiano
Computer Science , 2013, DOI: 10.2168/LMCS-9(4:17)2013
Abstract: We develop the mathematical theory of epistemic updates with the tools of duality theory. We focus on the Logic of Epistemic Actions and Knowledge (EAK), introduced by Baltag-Moss- Solecki, without the common knowledge operator. We dually characterize the product update construction of EAK as a certain construction transforming the complex algebras associated with the given model into the complex algebra associated with the updated model. This dual characterization naturally generalizes to much wider classes of algebras, which include, but are not limited to, arbitrary BAOs and arbitrary modal expansions of Heyting algebras (HAOs). As an application of this dual characterization, we axiomatize the intuitionistic analogue of the logic of epistemic knowledge and actions, which we refer to as IEAK, prove soundness and completeness of IEAK w.r.t. both algebraic and relational models, and illustrate how IEAK encodes the reasoning of agents in a concrete epistemic scenario.
Dual characterizations for finite lattices via correspondence theory for monotone modal logic
Sabine Frittella,Alessandra Palmigiano,Luigi Santocanale
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: We establish a formal connection between algorithmic correspondence theory and certain dual characterization results for finite lattices, similar to Nation's characterization of a hierarchy of pseudovarieties of finite lattices, progressively generalizing finite distributive lattices. This formal connection is mediated through monotone modal logic. Indeed, we adapt the correspondence algorithm ALBA to the setting of monotone modal logic, and we use a certain duality-induced encoding of finite lattices as monotone neighbourhood frames to translate lattice terms into formulas in monotone modal logic.
Gold(I) and gold(III) complexes with anionic oxygen donor ligands: hydroxo, oxo and alkoxo complexes
Maria Agostina Cinellu,Giovanni Minghetti
Gold Bulletin , 2002, DOI: 10.1007/BF03214832
Abstract: The chemistry of gold(I) and gold(III) hydroxo, oxo and alkoxo complexes containing organic co-ligands is reviewed. Due to the high reactivity of the gold-oxygen bond most of these species can be employed as useful intermediates in many important processes. Alkoxides are by far the most numerous class among these species, and both gold(I) and gold(III) complexes are known with a variety of alkoxides. The recent discovery of the catalytic activity of some gold(I) and gold(III) fluoroalkoxides has enlivened the interest towards this class of compounds leading to new applications for previously known complexes, as is the case for a gold(III) siloxo complex which has found use as a precursor for CVD, as well as for the synthesis of new alkoxo derivatives. Another well represented and well known class of compounds are the gold(I) oxo complexes [O(AuPR3)3]+ which are the most effective aurating reagents. Gold(III) oxo complexes have been synthesized only recently and much of their chemistry is still largely to be explored. Preliminary studies suggest their potential in the transfer of oxygen atoms. Finally, some cationic gold(III) hydroxo complexes are found to display significant,and in some cases relevant, cytotoxic effects on cancer cell lines.
Canonicity and Relativized Canonicity via Pseudo-Correspondence: an Application of ALBA
Willem Conradie,Alessandra Palmigiano,Sumit Sourabh,Zhiguang Zhao
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: We generalize Venema's result on the canonicity of the additivity of positive terms, from classical modal logic to a vast class of logics the algebraic semantics of which is given by varieties of normal distributive lattice expansions (normal DLEs), aka `distributive lattices with operators'. We provide two contrasting proofs for this result: the first is along the lines of Venema's pseudo-correspondence argument but using the insights and tools of unified correspondence theory, and in particular the algorithm ALBA; the second closer to the style of J\'onsson. Using insights gleaned from the second proof, we define a suitable enhancement of the algorithm ALBA, which we use prove the canonicity of certain syntactically defined classes of DLE-inequalities (called the meta-inductive inequalities), relative to the structures in which the formulas asserting the additivity of some given terms are valid.
