Towards a sovereign bankruptcy procedure and greater restraint in IMF crisis lending. An interim assessmen
Curzio Giannini
PSL Quarterly Review , 2003,
Abstract: The paper reviews the area of the international financial architecture relating tosovereign crisis resolution. It is argued that shifting part of the burden of crisisresolution onto creditors may encourage debtor countries to take early action to counter an unsustainable debt path. Collective action clauses, the sovereign debt restructuring mechanism, and ceilings on IMF loans, are all necessary components of a new and better crisis resolution framework.

Neuropathological Changes in Hydrocephalus—A Comprehensive Review  [PDF]
Domenico L. Di Curzio
Open Journal of Modern Neurosurgery (OJMN) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojmn.2018.81001
Abstract: Hydrocephalus is a heterogeneous, neurological condition characterized by altered flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that can occur at any age. Neuropathological changes associated with hydrocephalus are dependent on the age of onset, rate of ventricular enlargement, and the etiology. Hydrocephalic brain damage is also influenced by contributions from both mechanical forces and metabolic changes, which increases the heterogeneity of the condition. However, as ventriculomegaly progresses, the surrounding brain tissue is compressed within the cranial vault, elevating intracranial pressure and eventually leading to severe brain damage. From this perspective, it makes sense that periventricular brain regions are the initial sites of damage as ventricular dilatation occurs. The following review of neuropathological changes in hydrocephalus will first discuss cellular and region specific damage from the ventricles and outward towards the cortex and brainstem. This will be followed by vascular and hypoxic changes associated with the condition. Both types of brain impairments are dependent on the severity of the condition, and they will be described accordingly.
Animal Models of Hydrocephalus  [PDF]
Domenico L. Di Curzio
Open Journal of Modern Neurosurgery (OJMN) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojmn.2018.81004
Abstract:

Hydrocephalus is a neurological condition characterized by altered cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow leading to an accumulation of CSF inside the cranial vault. Neuropathogenesis associated with hydrocephalus has been elucidated by pathological studies of human brains and through experimental and genetic animal models. Experimental animal models have been developed in numerous species using a variety of methods and agents to induce hydrocephalus or through genetic mutations in rodents. Each of these animal models has been described briefly in this review, along with the basic strengths and weaknesses of each model. Although none of these models can fully mimic the human condition, they each provide fundamental knowledge contributing to understanding more about the pathogenesis of hydrocephalus and its underlying causes.

Fitting 3D morphable models using implicit representations
Curzio Basso,Alessandro Verri
Journal of Virtual Reality and Broadcasting , 2008,
Abstract: We consider the problem of approximating the 3D scan of a real object through an affine combination of examples. Common approaches depend either on the explicit estimation of point-to-point correspondences or on 2-dimensional projections of the target mesh; both present drawbacks. We follow an approach similar to [ IF03 ] by representing the target via an implicit function, whose values at the vertices of the approximation are used to define a robust cost function. The problem is approached in two steps, by approximating first a coarse implicit representation of the whole target, and then finer, local ones; the local approximations are then merged together with a Poisson-based method. We report the results of applying our method on a subset of 3D scans from the Face Recognition Grand Challenge v.1.0.
Governability in Contemporary Mexico
Leonardo Curzio Gutiérrez
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 1998,
Abstract: Given the difficulties to establish a concept of governability and the frequent ideological usage of the term, it is much more operative to turn to the principle of governability, in the broad sense, which supports itself on five pillars: the political legitimacy of the government, the governmental efficiency to attend to the demands of society, the existence of shared social project, the agreement with the principle special interest groups, and international viability. The analysis of the structure and relevance of these five points during the long period of political transition that Mexico underwent between 1988 and 1997 shows how it was possible for this country to play off certain factors against each other in order to secure governability and safeguard against the consequences of any resultant imbalances. Between 1998-1993, the government of Salinas de Gotari based itself on the viability of a neoliberal project within an international context, and on this projectís attention to domestic demands as well as on the governmentís pact with elites. Institutional integration and legitimacy made up, then, for a process of discreet liberalization and the lack of democratic electoral commitment, which culminated in the PRI’s 1994 elections victory.The assassination of Colosia, though, and the appearance of the EZLN and the subsequent crisis surrounding the peso’s devaluation that accompanied Ernesto Zedilloís rise to power soon led to the collapse of those pillars of support. Crowning the process of the silenttransition were the elections of 1997, which makes it possible to say that in Mexico today there are now smooth elections, but that reform of the State is still unresolved —a subject that includes the reduction of the president’s competence. Seen in the short term, the most direct threats to Mexico’s governability will come as a result of the lack of attention to those demands of society’s underprivileged and the ill-mannered distribution of income. The State’s capacity to negotiate with the favored class is fundamental for the effective application of the policies of social integration. In foreign affairs aspects, the asymmetrical integration with the EE.UU. turns this northern neighbor into a kind of special interest group which, in its totality of influence, limits the range of possibilities for Mexico’s development.
La crisi: aspetti economici e sociali
ALBERTO QUADRIO CURZIO
Moneta e Credito , 2010,
Abstract: The article contains the introduction to the meeting on the financial crisis held in February at the Accademia dei Lincei, by Alberto Quadro Curzio, president of the division of Moral Sciences of the Accademia. The introduction deals with three main topics: a brief account of the crisis, the relevance of a distinctively European and Italian approach to political economy, the historical development within the Accademia of a critical and constructive thought in the field of the socio-economic sciences.
Economie in crisi: Eurolandia dalla resistenza alla ricostruzione
ALBERTO QUADRIO CURZIO
Moneta e Credito , 2011,
Abstract: In this article we underline the effects of the crisis that erupted in the U.S. in 2008, due to financial hazard, and then spread everywhere, to assess how the euro zone (EMU) and its countries have acted. We will consider two periods that the EMU has passed through, each characterized by a different attitude towards the crisis: diversified resistance (with more deficits and higher debt, that in many countries was due to bail out banks); unified resistance (intergovernmental coordination, with a common special vehicle (EFSF), ratified by Ecofin and the European Council). We conclude with references to 2011 when the òregulation with actions for growthó might begin.

Registration of Expressions Data using a 3D Morphable Model
Curzio Basso,Thomas Vetter
Journal of Multimedia , 2006, DOI: 10.4304/jmm.1.4.37-45
Abstract: The registration of 3D scans of faces is a key step for many applications, in particular for building 3D Morphable Models. Although a number of algorithms are already available for registering data with neutral expression, the registration of scans with arbitrary expressions is typically performed under the assumption of a known, fixed identity. We present a novel algorithm which breaks this restriction, allowing to register 3D scans of faces with arbitrary identity and expression. Furthermore, our algorithm can process incomplete data, yielding results which are both continuous and with low reconstruction error. Even in the case of complete, expression-less data, our method can yield better results than previous algorithms, due to an adaptive smoothing, which regularizes the results surface only where the estimated correspondence is unreliable.
