Clearstream’s core business areas experienced further growth during April 2005 with the value of assets held in custody on behalf of customers rising to EUR 7.9 trillion, a rise of 2.6 percent from the end of the same month last year (April 2004 EUR 7.7 trillion). The number of international transactions processed by Clearstream also rose to 1.60 million for the month representing a rise of 10.3 percent compared with the same month last year (April 2004: 1.45 million). Of these transactions, 15 percent are registered as stock exchange transactions, 85 percent are Over the Counter (OTC) transactions. For domestic settlement transactions in Germany, the figure stood at 2.70 million in April 2005 representing a decrease of 10.6 percent on the same period last year (April 2004: 3.02 million). The ratio for domestic settlement transactions was 66 percent stock exchange transactions to 34 percent OTC transactions.
Within the Global Securities Financing services business, strong growth continued with the monthly average outstandings reaching EUR 177.2 billion. The combined services include tripartite repo, securities lending and collateral management and collectively experienced a rise of over 38.4 percent from the same month last year (April 2004: EUR 128.0 billion).
Clearstream’s investment funds service called Vestima+ showed further volume increases with the number of investment funds related instructions processed reaching 170,146 in April 2005, a rise of 21.2 percent from the same month last year (April 2004: 140,341).

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
