Topology and Geometry in Chiral Liquids
We study the interplay of topology and geometry with chirality for several passive and active systems, employing both analytical and numerical methods.

On the geometry of fracture and frustration
Promotor: Prof.dr. M.L. van Hecke, CoPromotor: Prof. dr. V. Vitelli

Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory
The research of the Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory programme ranges from fundamental mathematical theory to algorithms and applications.

Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory
The research of the Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory cluster tries to bridge the gap between abstract theory and the world of algorithms and applications.

Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory (MSc)
The master’s specialisation Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory at Leiden University is aimed at students who wish to acquire a profound knowledge of one of the areas within pure mathematics. There is a strong theme dealing with algebra and number theory as well as a strong theme dealing with topology…

On the geometry of demixing: A study of lipid phase separation on curved surfaces
Like a mixture of oil and water, lipid membranes separate into two liquid phases.

Bad reduction of Hilbert modular varieties with parahoric level structure
Promotor: S.J. Edixhoven, A. Iovita

Geometry and Topology in Active and Driven Systems
The key characteristic of active matter is the motion of an emergent collection (such as a flock of birds), which is driven by the consumption of energy by its active components (i.e. individual birds).

Zetavalues of arithmetic schemes at negative integers and Weilétale cohomology
This work is dedicated to interpreting in cohomological terms the special values of zeta functions of arithmetic schemes.

Dual Complexes of Semistable Varieties
This thesis is comprised of three chapters covering the theme of studying semistable varieties by looking at their dual combinatorial objects.

NWO tenure track grant in arithmetic algebraic geometry
Within the context of the four national mathematics clusters, NWO has awarded seven proposals for tenure track positions. One of these was on 'Moduli, metrics, models, and arithmetic of Shimura varieties' by Bas Edixhoven from the Leiden Mathematical Institute.

Inverse Jacobian and related topics for certain superelliptic curves
To an algebraic curve C over the complex numbers one can associate a nonnegative integer g, the genus, as a measure of its complexity.
