Astrakhan State University is a university located in Astrakhan, Russian Federation. It was founded in 1932.The traditional functions of Astrakhan State University include training specialists and fundamental researches; but ASU also works actively to export its educational services and to share new technologies with the industry and the business.ASU in figures:6 Institutions;21 Departments;82 Chairs;More than 40 research institutions, centers, and laboratories;More than 100 specialties to train students;57 research specialties for PhD courses;11 thesis councils;More than 16, 000 students ;600 postgraduate students ;10 university buildings for studies;6 comfortable hostels;37 computer centers with Internet access.ASU actively develops its international links. Jointly with its partners from Finland, Italy, Japan, Germany, France, China, Iran, Egypt, United States, Uzbekistan, and from other countries, Astrakhan State University carries out the following programs: short-term language courses, student exchanges, joint research and innovative projects, joint courses for students, international conferences.ASU successfully realizes its agreements on “double diplomas” signed with Université de Sophia Antipolis and with Clark University . The agreements concern joint Masters’ programs.ASU has been chosen by Harvard University as a pilot site in Russia to organize an educational program in international competitiveness.The two-year experience gained by ASU’s Russian Language Summer School for American students has made it possible for the parties to sign a cooperation agreement till 2012.ASU has become one of 16 basic Russian Universities to form the University of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.A UNESCO Chair operates at ASU; this Chair contributes to setting a systematic international cooperation and to enhancing international relations between universities and other organizations.Teaching students at ASU is carried out in accordance with up-to-date educational programs, which imply not only fundamental special training, but also studying one or two foreign languages. ASU’s students can study the main European and Eastern languages.Students’ life includes not only attending lessons. A lot of attention is paid to their leisure activities. Our students demonstrate their talents at various festivals and in sporting competitions. Wikipedia.

Numerical simulations by means of Monte Carlo method and finite-size scaling analysis have been performed to study the percolation behavior of linear k-mers (also denoted in publications as rigid rods, needles, sticks) on two-dimensional square lattices L×L with periodic boundary conditions. Percolation phenomena are investigated for anisotropic relaxation random sequential adsorption of linear k-mers. Especially, effect of anisotropic placement of the objects on the percolation threshold has been investigated. A detailed study of the behavior of percolation probability RL(p) that a lattice of size L percolates at concentration p in dependence on k, anisotropy, and lattice size L has been performed. A nonmonotonic size dependence for the percolation threshold has been confirmed in the isotropic case. We propose a fitting formula for percolation threshold, p c=a/kα+blog10k+c, where a, b, c, and α are the fitting parameters depending on anisotropy. We predict that for large k-mers (kâ†1.2×104) isotropically placed at the lattice, percolation cannot occur, even at jamming concentration. © 2012 American Physical Society. Source

Modern humans feel great influence under developing electronic culture that absorb the self within important spheres of life: communication, education, game, creation. This article considers the base existential problem of personhood under the influence of virtualization and human transforming technologies. The author proves that electronic status of human form new possibilities and risks in ontological, values and ethical aspects, new form of freedom, necessity's and addictives. The aim of the article is philosophical analysis of existential challenges, occurring under the development of e-culture. E-culture as the world of virtual phenomena that became unique synthesis of consciousness and information technologies is studied from the point of existential and axiological approach. Under condition of development of e-culture formed a new freedom, new dependences and new risks for modern person. Copyright © 2014, IGI Global. Source

The shift of the real communication to the virtual sphere has influenced the nature of interpersonal relations. The article focuses on the characterization of the phenomenon 'virtual communication', playing the dominating role in the electronic world culture. Drawing from a socio-cultural analysis and the theory of simulacra by J. Baudrillard, the article proposes the classification of the virtual communication types in terms of the nature of human relations and illustrates their peculiarities and features. Using the axiological approach, the author characterizes the phenomenon of the virtual communication and the existential and ethical aspects of the interpersonal relation transfer to the sphere of the information contact. The research resulted in revealing the features and peculiarities of the virtual communication and the benefits and risks for human beings and society. Copyright © 2016, IGI Global. Source

The effect of defects on the percolation of linear k-mers (particles occupying k adjacent sites) on a square lattice is studied by means of Monte Carlo simulation. The k-mers are deposited using a random sequential adsorption mechanism. Two models Ld and Kd are analyzed. In the Ld model it is assumed that the initial square lattice is nonideal and some fraction of sites d is occupied by nonconducting point defects (impurities). In the Kd model the initial square lattice is perfect. However, it is assumed that some fraction of the sites in the k-mers d consists of defects, i.e., is nonconducting. The length of the k-mers k varies from 2 to 256. Periodic boundary conditions are applied to the square lattice. The dependences of the percolation threshold concentration of the conducting sites pc vs the concentration of defects d are analyzed for different values of k. Above some critical concentration of defects dm, percolation is blocked in both models, even at the jamming concentration of k-mers. For long k-mers, the values of dm are well fitted by the functions dm ∞ km - k-α (α = 1.28 ± 0.01 and km = 5900 ± 500) and dm ∞ log10(km/k) (km = 4700 ± 1000) for the Ld and Kd models, respectively. Thus, our estimation indicates that the percolation of k-mers on a square lattice is impossible even for a lattice without any defects if k >≈ 6 × 103. © 2015 American Physical Society. Source
