"High-energy observations of our Galaxy offer a good, albeit not complete, picture of the X-ray source populations, in particular the accreting binary sources. Recent ability to study accreting binaries in nearby galaxies has shown that we would be short-sighted if we restricted ourselves to our Galaxy or to a few nearby ones. I propose an ambitious project that involves a comprehensive study of a ...

Although the Internet is a great technological achievement, more than 40 years after its creation some of its original security and reliability problems remain unsolved. The root cause of these problems is the rigidity of the Internet architecture or in other words the Internet ossification problem, i.e., the basic architectural components of the Internet are set to stone and cannot be changed. Th ...

Polaritons are quantum superpositions of light and matter which combine appealing properties of both: the high coherence of photons and the strong interaction (non-linearities) of electrons. With the report of their Bose-Einstein condensation in 2006, they stand as one of the most exciting semiconductor-optical system of today. Given their peculiar character, they encompass different interdiscipli ...
