Counting points on K3 surfaces and other arithmeticgeometric objects
This PhD thesis concerns the topic of arithmetic geometry. We address three different questions and each of the questions in some way is about counting how big some set is or can be.

Origami metamaterials : design, symmetries, and combinatorics
In the first part of this thesis we study the geometry of folding patterns.

'Maths is often way ahead of practical applications'
A secret code that we currently use to send emails securely is based on the maths of a century ago. The geometrical surfaces that Dino Festi studied during his PhD research will perhaps be used in future codes or new physics. PhD defence 5 July.

About the programme
The master’s programme offers two researchoriented specialisations where you can focus on Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory or Applied Mathematics. You can also combine Mathematics with education, management or science communication.

Why Leiden University?
The Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory specialisation gives you profound knowledge of pure mathematics. The focus is on both fundamental mathematics and on applications in other sciences, society and industry. During your master’s you will be part of one of the multidisciplinary research teams at the…

Knowledge and Culture
Morality, mathematics, geometry, geography, music, navigation, and language are traditionally viewed as uniquely human cultural achievements and abilities. The study of their development and variation is classified as part of the humanities and social sciences. These fields have been mainly studied…
