Nights of the Dispossesed: Riots Unbound
Gal Kirn, niloufar tajeri, Natasha Ginwala, 2020, professional monograph

Abstract: SHARE PUB DATE: October 2020 ISBN: 9781941332634 256 pages FORMAT: Paperback LIST PRICE: $25.00£22.00 ADD TO CART Nights of the Dispossessed Riots Unbound Edited by Natasha Ginwala, Gal Kirn, and Niloufar Tajeri Columbia Books on Architecture and the City MAIN REVIEWS CONTENTS EXCERPT LINKS AWARDS Riots are extraordinary events that have been recurring with increasing frequency and that occupy a highly controversial space in the political imagination. Despite their often negative portrayals, it is undeniable that riots have played a pivotal role in the confrontation between authority and dissent. Recently, with the deepening crises of capitalism, racial violence, and communal tension, an “age of riots” has powerfully begun. As master fictions of the sovereign nation-state implode and the hegemonic silencing of the dispossessed reveals the cracks in governability, Nights of the Dispossessed brings together artistic works, political texts, critical urban analyses, and research projects from across the world in an endeavor to “sense,” chronicle, and think through recent riots and uprisings—evoking a phenomenology of the multitude and surplus population.
Keywords: riots, uprisings, dissent, impossible memory on riots, form of riots, riotous art, art on riots, political theory of riots, surplus population, crowd

Engaging Bodies Through Expanded Art Practice
Asja Apolonia Trost, 2020, master's thesis

Abstract: The master thesis entitled “Engaging Bodies Through Expanded Art Practice” is divided in two parts: the first one is the theoretical part which places socially engaged arts in the time-line of contemporary art, followed by an overview of my practical work entitled “Obsolete Properties”. The central aim of the theoretical part is to determine the structures of socially engaged art projects, with all their ambiguities, caused by the inherent connection between the social and the artistic. Topics of such process-based interdisciplinary and participatory art projects reflect at the same time on cultural traditions as well as on current social issues. The second part is an analysis of the artwork I created and set in different contexts. It consists of common materials that arrived into my hands after their previous owners moved their homes. The artwork celebrates artistic process and environmental sustainability while on the other side serves as an agent on the discourse of values.

Search for Physics beyond the Standard Model with the CRESST Experiment
2017, master's thesis

Abstract: In spite of the successes of observational astro- and particle physics and cosmology very much of the universe remains unknown. The Standard Model of particle physics is a theory describing the electromagnetic, weak, and strong nuclear interactions, as well as classifying all the subatomic particles known. But there is overwhelming evidence, that all the known particles, the ordinary (baryonic) matter, the building blocks of planets, stars and ourselves, only make up about 4.9% of the energy content of the universe. The standard model of cosmology (CDM) indicates that the total mass-energy of the universe contains beside the 4.9% ordinary matter two other components: 26.8% dark matter and 68.3% dark energy. The accelerating expansion of the Universe is the result of the effect of the dark energy with its most simple form given by a cosmological constant in Einstein's Equation. Dark matter is an unidentified type of matter that is not accounted for by dark energy and neutrinos and is generally believed to be a non-relativistic, charge neutral and non-baryonic new form of matter. Although dark matter has not been directly observed yet, its existence and properties are inferred from its gravitational effects such as the motions of visible matter, gravitational lensing, its influence on the universe's large-scale structure, and its effects in the cosmic microwave background. Thus the search for Dark Matter is the search for physics beyond the standard model. Although the nature of dark matter is yet unknown, its presence is crucial to understanding the future of the universe. The CRESST experiment is searching for direct evidence in the form of a nuclear recoil induced on a scintillating CaWO4 crystal by a dark matter particle, and is installed and taking data underground at Laboratory Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) in Italy. While both, dark energy and dark matter, have not been detected directly, a class of dark matter particles that interact only via gravity and the weak force, referred to asWeakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), has been established as the leading candidate among the dark matter community. For this thesis a special model of dark matter was studied, namely the dark photon. This thesis provides a detailed description of the calculation of the 90% upper limit on the dark photon kinetic mixing based on data from the second phase of the CRESST experiment. The analysis was carried out in a frequentist approach based on the (unbinned) maximum-likelihood method and likelihood ratios. To make a statement about the calculated result and its quality, the used algorithm had to be tested, what was done with Monte Carlo simulations (pseudo data).

Agreement errors and structural distance: A corpus study of Bulgarian
Penka Stateva, Arthur Stepanov, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: In this work we address the phenomenon of substitution of the special “count form” suffix of masculine non-person nouns in Bulgarian numeral phrases for a simple plural morpheme. This substitution phenomenon is observed in everyday speech and writing and is noted by traditional Bulgarian grammarians. We propose to treat this phenomenon on a par with agreement errors previously investigated in the language production literature on English (e.g. “The editor of the books are...”) and on the Romance languages. We conducted a corpus study of agreement substitution errors in Bulgarian, the results of which support the psycholinguistic theories maintaining, in particular, that structural hierarchy is relevant for the computation of agreement in language production.
Keywords: agreement, error, count form, feature, distance, Bulgarian
