Personalised medicine for multiple outcomes: methods and application
The main objective of this thesis was to develop clinically relevant survival models for patients with high-grade soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities, in particular the development and validation of prediction models for use in clinical practice.
Origami metamaterials : design, symmetries, and combinatorics
In the first part of this thesis we study the geometry of folding patterns.
A recipe for desert: analysis of an extended Klausmeier model
Promotores: Arjen Doelman, Jens Rademacher, Max Rietkerk
Geometry of Vegetation Pattern
One of the effects of climate change is the phenomenon of desertification, a process that occurs in semi-arid and arid areas and causes land degradation as well as vegetation loss. Due to the lack of resources, vegetation self-organizes to sustain itself by forming large-scale spatial patterns.
Lines in the sand: behaviour of self-organised vegetation patterns in dryland ecosystems
Vast, often populated, areas in dryland ecosystems face the dangers of desertification.
The members of LUXs develop and validate new methods and algorithms for analysing data, and apply these in a wide range of problems. Their research ranges from multidisciplinary applications to proving mathematical theorems.
Leiden hosts seventh Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers conference
Next April, Leiden will host the seventh annual international Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers conference (SAfJR2018). This three-day event is aimed at career-young statisticians with an interest in the application and development of time-to-event analysis and related topics. The conference…
Mathematics as weapon against desertification
PhD student Robbin Bastiaansen applies mathematics to get insight in practical problems. By comparing mathematical models with developments in existing ecosystems, he hopes to demystify the process of desertification. His research has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
Earth is more resilient than was thought
We have to do all we can to stop climate change. But: the Earth is more resilient than we thought. That is the surprising conclusion of an international team of ecologists and mathematicians, which included Leiden mathematician Arjen Doelman. The team discovered that ecosystems can still avoid tipping…
Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers 2018
Survival Analysis for Junior Researchers 2018 was hosted in Leiden.
Dynamic control of function by light-driven molecular switches and motors
- Volume 7 (2012)
Below thesis archives will be moved shortly (work in progress) to the Leiden Repository. Once this is done, theses submitted by MI students (from 2008 onwards) can be accessed via the Repository and will be removed from this site.
