The Palm measure and the Voronoi tessellation for the Ginibre process
André Goldman
Mathematics , 2006, DOI: 10.1214/09-AAP620
Abstract: We prove that the Palm measure of the Ginibre process is obtained by removing a Gaussian distributed point from the process and adding the origin. We obtain also precise formulas describing the law of the typical cell of Ginibre--Voronoi tessellation. We show that near the germs of the cells a more important part of the area is captured in the Ginibre--Voronoi tessellation than in the Poisson--Voronoi tessellation. Moment areas of corresponding subdomains of the cells are explicitly evaluated.
Genetic Relationships in Advanced Generation Hybrids Derived from Crosses between Texas (Poa arachnifera) and Kentucky (Poa pratensis) Bluegrass Using ISSR Markers  [PDF]
Jason Goldman
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2013.412303

Fertile, advanced generation hybrids derived from crosses between Texas (Poa arachnifera Torr.) and Kentucky (Poa pratensis L.) bluegrass have been selected. The hybrids are currently being evaluated for low-input turf potential. Since they are derived from hand-harvested seed from first-generation hybrids located in field nurseries their exact genetic origin is unknown. This experiment was conducted to determine if there are still genetic relationships among the advanced generation hybrids and some of the Texas and Kentucky parents in their pedigrees. Four Inter Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) primer combinations resolved on 6% nondenaturing polyacrylamide gels resulted in 179 polymorphic bands that were scored to create a genetic similarity matrix and dendrogram based on Jaccard’s coefficient. The clustering of the advanced generation hybrids was generally in agreement with what would be expected based on their pedigrees and indicated it was more likely to select a fertile hybrid from an advanced generation, rather than the F1 generation.

Uso referido de medicamentos e suplementos alimentares nos atletas selecionados para controle de doping nos Jogos Sul-Americanos
De Rose, Eduardo Henrique;Feder, Marta Goldman;Pedroso, Paulo Rodrigo;Guimar?es, André Zanette;
Revista Brasileira de Medicina do Esporte , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-86922006000500003
Abstract: the objective of the present study was to describe the prevalence of medicine and dietary supplements use in athlete who participated in the mandatory doping controls of the vii south american sports games, which took place in four brazilian cities. one issue considering the doping control and relative to substances used in the days that preceded the competition was statistically analyzed. the authors analyzed data collected from 234 athletes of 25 sports participating in the games, being these athletes 136 males and 98 females, distributed among the 13 participating countries. according to the questionnaire conducted in the doping control, 44% athletes informed some substances used up to three days before the competition. the medications were classified into non-steroidal anti inflammatory (nsai) (24.8%), analgesics (15.9%), antibiotics (4.3%), cold medicine (3%) and other medicines (19.3%). moreover, 50% of athletes reported the use of dietetic supplements, being this group divided into vitamins (39.7%), minerals (21.9%), amino acids (18.9%) and other substances (13.3%). the authors concluded that there was an overuse of antiinflammatory and analgesic medication in many sports modalities, which raises a concern in terms of control of symptoms of the athletes in competitions. besides that, there was an important use of dietary supplements without specific indication. such fact may cause an eventual adverse analytical finding in the control of doping by contamination or manipulation.
Alteridade e experiência: Antropologia e teoria etnográfica
Etnográfica , 2006,
Abstract: starting from the concept of experience, as proposed by godfrey lienhardt in the beginning of the sixties, this paper intends to discuss the singularity of the anthropological perspective. this is done by confronting the nature of the knowledges the anthropologist applies with those hold by the people she or he works with. the main point is to demonstrate that the singularity of the anthropological work lies is the construction of ethnographic theories that cannot be assimilated to native theories or to possible scientific theories.
O dom e a inicia??o revisitados: o dado e o feito em religi?es de matriz africana no brasil
Goldman, Marcio;
Mana , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132012000200002
Abstract: beginning with the known opposition between that which derives from the "gift" and that which derives from "initiation" in african-oriented religions in brazil, this work aims to ethnographically demonstrate that said dualism actually conceals a triadism. the unfolding of ethnographic analysis in the article will, however, lead us to replace this triadism with a model that is simultaneously unified and multiple. in this, "participation" (in its multiple meanings) should have a place next to the "gift" and "initiation" and the three categories should be construed as updates of a single under-lying principle.

Mana , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132001000200003
Abstract: assuming that processes of segmentation are not necessarily opposed to those linked to the state, this article seeks to explore the ways through which the segmentary divisions characteristic of black movement groups in ilhéus can function simultaneously as forms of resistance and as nodal points for mechanisms which are dependent on a state logic. it is a matter of emphasising both the processes of "capture" used by the state and the resistances mobilized by the segmentary formations. from a theoretical perspective, the aim of the article is to show that the application to our own society of categories traditionally developed to account for other cultures should cease to be a simple metaphor or stylistic resource and become an instrument of observation and interpretation. for this to be achieved, these categories must be transformed and made flexible, which also produces effects on the analysis of these "other cultures"
Poder e resistência: um ensaio sobre a dimens?o conceitual do "Império"
Goldman, Marcio;
Mana , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132003000200006
Abstract: this essay explores the conceptual dimensions of empire by michael hardt and antonio negri. in basic terms, it takes the authors seriously when they claim the notion is not a metaphor nor a description, but a concept. linking this claim to the constructivist philosophy of gilles deleuze and félix guattari, it argues that the book is an attempt to transpose a series of new conceptions of power developed over the 1960s and 70s onto the plane of concrete political, historical and ethnographic analysis. the essay also aims to show in the process that the concept of 'empire' only really becomes operative when accompanied by its correlate 'multitude' - like the former, a conceptual entity that not only enables us to analyze the present but also to discern lines of action in the spaces it traces.
Histórias, devires e fetiches das religi?es afro-brasileiras: ensaio de simetriza??o antropológica
Análise Social , 2009,
Abstract: starting out from discussion of the current state of afro-brazilian studies, this article addresses the recently revived debate over formerly widely disseminated ideas concerning "the fetish" and "fetishism". it first examines how that debate has been conducted in studies of afro-brazilian religions, using bibliographical and field-work data on one of those religions - candomblé - to describe the native theory of the creation process which underlies that which outsiders have labelled "fetish" and "fetishism". briefly, the theory holds that process of creation actualizes existing virtualities rather than producing, out of nothing, our judaeo-christian and capitalist cosmology.
Lévi-Strauss e os sentidos da História
Goldman, Marcio;
Revista de Antropologia , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-77011999000100012
Abstract: this text explores various aspects of claude lévi-strauss's thought concerning history. starting out from a critique of reductionist readings of his work, the paper aims to demonstrate two points. firstly that, even though the reflection on history occupies an apparently secondary dimension in the author's work, it is precisely this deliberation which allows us to touch on important and marginalized aspects of so-called structuralism. secondly, the paper aims to show that lévi-strauss's reflections allowed the development of a truly anthropological, rather than ethnocentric, perspective on the history and historicity of human societies.
Os tambores dos mortos e os tambores dos vivos. Etnografia, antropologia e política em Ilhéus, Bahia
Goldman, Marcio;
Revista de Antropologia , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-77012003000200012
Abstract: this paper questions whether it is possible holding on to a traditional anthropological point of view when the phenomenon observed lies at the heart of the observer's society. for this purpose, i assess various classical contributions to the debate on anthropological observation with relation to my own fieldwork experience, drawn from my study of political participation and elections amongst black movement activists in ilhéus, southern bahia, brazil. leaving aside any normative intentions, i lay out some critical issues to current anthropology, such as the following: is it effectively possible to adopt "a view from afar" when facing something as central to the observer's society as representative democracy? if so, in which way and following which procedures? what is the difference, if any, between the study of a group of "believers" (for instance, in candomblé) by a "skeptical" observer, and the study of "skepticals" (for instance, in politics) by a "believer" observer? do differences of scale between objects of study, groups or societies inevitably affect research procedures?
