project? Apply now for a Peter Paul Peterich / DIAM Fast Track PhD Scholarship!
We focus on Functional Analysis and Operator Theory with applications to the study of (partial) differential equations, both deterministic and non-deterministic.
We cover a large spectrum of research areas in probability theory, going from very application-driven towards fundamental research.
Discrete Mathematics & Optimization
Mathematical optimization lies at the heart of many techniques in economy, econometrics, process control, and so on.
We work on mathematical modeling of physical phenomena, often leading to systems of (partial) differential equations.
Our research program concentrates on the development and application of computing methods to the applied sciences.
Applied Mathematics Stories
Neural networks put the afterburners on skin recovery modelsFirst aid for burn injuries is to cool the area for twenty minutes with lukewarm running water. Math can play an important role in choosing the subsequent, often more intensive, treatment aimed at reducing the probability of permanent damage or even disabilities. But these mathematical models for skin recovery must be fast. By applying neural networks, Marianne Schaaphok increased their speed by more than a million times.
A fresh perspective on potato growthRequiring less water and less time to grow than rice, corn or wheat, potatoes may well be the answer to the growing worldwide demand for food. But what are the key factors that determine a successful potato harvest? Asked to provide a fresh perspective, Neil Budko develops numerical methods for the analysis of carefully controlled potato growth experiments.
A bit of math to constrain epidemicsMost people like to keep both mathematics and epidemics at a distance. But a little bit of the former can do wonders in limiting the latter. Supervised by professor Kees Vuik, two high school students modelled a recent outbreak of cholera in Ghana. He also has a bachelor student investigating the new corona virus.
