    La Administraci贸n de Justicia es cada vez m谩s consciente de la importancia de que la pericia m茅dica en los casos de violencia familiar se haga de forma completa, rigurosa y cient铆fica. Por ello, desde hace seis a帽os pusimos nuestra experiencia y conocimientos a su servicio creando la "Unidad de Valoraci贸n M茅dico-forense de Violencia Familiar" en la Universidad de Granada, al objeto de realizar una pericia m茅dico-legal integral en cada caso de violencia, dirigida a establecer una valoraci贸n global y completa de la v铆ctima, del agresor y de los hijos, cuando los hay. En el presente trabajo se describe la sistem谩tica utilizada en la evaluaci贸n psicol贸gico-psiqui谩trica de las partes involucradas en el problema y los resultados que nos permiten establecer los diversos perfiles de maltratadores. La comparaci贸n entre los resultados obtenidos en el perfil de personalidad de la v铆ctima y del agresor permite comprender c贸mo surge la din谩mica de la violencia y cu谩les son los detonantes del comportamiento maltratador, as铆 como el nivel de riesgo que este representa para aqu茅lla. Esta valoraci贸n integral puede proporcionar al juez, al fiscal y a los letrados una informaci贸n rigurosa y objetiva sobre la que apoyar la mejor decisi贸n para todos los implicados y las medidas a adoptar en cada caso.Judges and Justice more and more realise the importance of medical expert reports in cases of domestic violence being made in a complete, rigorous and scientific way. For this reason, for the last six years we have placed our experience and knowledge at their service by creating the "Forensic Evaluation of Domestic Violence Unit" in the University of Granada. Our purpose was to carry out integral medical expertise in each case of violence, trying to establish a global and complete evaluation, of both victim and aggressor (and their children, when there are any). This paper describes the systematic protocol we have used for the psychological-psychiatric evaluation of the parts involved in the problem, as well as the obtained results which allow as to establish the diverse aggressor profiles. The comparison between the results for the profile of victim and aggressor personalities allows a comprehension of how the dynamics of the violence arises and what is the trigger for the aggressive behavior, as well as the level of risk that the aggressor represents for the victim. This global evaluation can provide to judge, prosecutor, and lawyers rigorous and objective information as a basis for the best decision for both victim and aggressor as well as for the measures to adopt in each cas

    The operation and general performance of the CMS electromagnetic calorimeter using cosmic-ray muons are described. These muons were recorded after the closure of the CMS detector in late 2008. The calorimeter is made of lead tungstate crystals and the overall status of the 75848 channels corresponding to the barrel and endcap detectors is reported. The stability of crucial operational parameters, such as high voltage, temperature and electronic noise, is summarised and the performance of the light monitoring system is presented
