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…

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.

Mathematics and Education (MSc)
The master’s specialisation Mathematics and Education at Leiden University prepares students to teach the subject of mathematics to secondary school students. The programme comprises a oneyear mathematics component, followed by an education component in the second year.

Applied Mathematics (MSc)
The master's specialisation Applied Mathematics at Leiden University focuses on both computational and fundamental aspects of analysis and probability. It’s also an ideal basis for a PhD degree. Applied Mathematics is an excellent choice if you have the aspiration to pursue a PhD degree

Travelling patterns on Discrete Media
This thesis describes how complex and realworld relevant analytical solutions can be found starting from a simple Nagumo problem posed on one or twodimensional lattices.

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…

The master’s specialisation Mathematics and Science Communication and Society at Leiden University bridges the gap between experts and the public by combining high quality research in mathematics with extensive training in science communication.

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

Patterns of Paleomobility in the Ancient Antilles.
Patterns of paleomobility in the Caribbean were studied through an interdisciplinary approach using a combination of archaeological, osteological, mortuary, and isotopic data.

Multiscale mathematical biology of cellextracellular matrix interactions during morphogenesis
During embryonic growth, cells proliferate, differentiate, and collectively migrate to form different tissues at the right position and time in the body.

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…

Mathematical modelling of adverse outcome pathways
In this project, we aim to develop mathematical models to mechanistically and quantitatively predict the dynamics of cellular stress pathway activation and its relation with toxic effects when cells are exposed to various toxicants.

Mathematicsbased strategies for repairing tumour blood vessels
How does the extracellular matrix coordinate endothelial cell behavior during angiogenesis, and how do metabolic wasteproducts and matrixdegrading enzymes produced by the tumour modify the extracellular matrix so as the change the cellular coordination?

Mathematical analysis of systems pharmacology models
Systems pharmacology aims to apply techniques from systems biology to pharmacological models.

Network analysis reveals unexpected societal patterns
Thanks to data science, we can chart and search enormous quantities of related information. This generates all kinds of new insights, for example in complex global financial structures or such societal problems as loneliness.
