This work is done in collaboration with Emmanuel Leveque from the ENS Lyon. Our first steps in this field were initiated thanks to an original idea of Carlo Barenghi from the University of Newcastle, UK (see our EPL 87:54006 [2009] ).

 

The CPU ressources are provided by the CINES/GENCI and by the PSMN.
