What are the global relationships between environmental conditions and abundance of distinct types of mycorrhizal fungi in soil and plant roots?

Theoryenriched practical knowledge in mathematics teacher education
This study looks at the question of how and at what level students in primary teacher education can integrate theory and practice, and how the organisation of their learning environment, focusing especially on mathematics and pedagogy, can contribute to that.

Spatial patterns in landscape archaeology
This PhD project develops and applies a GIS procedure to use legacy survey data in settlement pattern analysis. As part of the research by the LERC project (NWO, Leiden University, KNIR), legacy data produced by surveys in central and southern Italy are examined in a comparative framework to investigate…

Waves and Patterns in Discrete Media: Bridging the Gaps
What happens to electrical waves that have to cross gaps in insulation material around nerves in the human body

Plankton and tumours captured in mathematical equations
Plants that grow in patterns of stripes on the edge of deserts, plankton that live on the sea bed or oscillate in the water, and melanomas that spread throughout the body. Mathematician Lotte Sewalt discovered the common elements in these three systems. PhD defence 8 September.

Mathematical modelling of advanced herbal extraction
Can the (industrial) herbal extraction process be mathematically described and can this model be used to optimize the extraction in terms of quality and economical parameters?

Mathematics
PhD candidates carry out a programme of independent research, leading to a PhD thesis in typically 4 years.

Record number of students in mathematics this year
The number of mathematics students in higher education is increasing spectacularly. This year, the influx of new students rises to more than 1000 on a national scale. This is a fivefold increase compared to the number of students that registered for an education in Mathematics in 2002.

Complex Patterns in Streams
The goal of the project is the development of stream mining techniques for complex patterns such as graphs. We will try to extend the existing stateoftheart techniques into two, orthogonal directions: on the one hand, the mining of more complex patterns in streams, such as sequential patterns and…

Spatial patterns in landscape archaeology (publication)
In several Mediterranean regions archaeological sites have been mapped by fieldwalking surveys, producing large amounts of data. These legacy sitebased survey data represent an important resource to study ancient settlement organization. Methodological procedures are necessary to cope with the limits…

Changing Patterns of Animal Exploitation
This part entails the analysis of an extensive sample of animal bone (c. 30,000 pieces) retrieved from welldefined archaeological contexts of the early period at Tell Sabi Abyad, c. 68006200 BC. It comprises aspects of taphonomy, ageing and osteometry, the reconstruction of the local spectrum of domestic…
