Neural networks put the afterburners on skin recovery models
First 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.
Aad van der Vaart: academic globetrotter touches down in Delft
The academic globetrotter Aad van der Vaart will be working in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science to raise the concept of causality – research into cause and effect – to a higher level.

Why do you need Mathematics to charge your phone?
Understanding noise – from quantum fluctuations to climate models
Mark Veraar researches mathematical models to reduce the disruptive influence of noise on all kinds of processes.
Modelling a flexible electricity system
Using numerical analysis, Marieke Kootte is developing a model to link high-voltage and low-voltage distribution networks.
A fresh perspective on potato growth
Requiring 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 epidemics
Most 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.

Tackling tumours using mathematics
Rekenen aan gigantische aspluimen
The Filipino volcano Taal is restless and spitting lava, ash and steam into the air. Volcanologists fear that a new and bigger eruption is imminent. Ten years ago, Europe was under the spell of an enormous ash cloud, following the eruption on the Eyjafjalla Glacier in Iceland. The cloud brought air traffic to a complete standstill and entailed significant costs. Guangliang Fu and Sha Lu, researched how such an ash plume behaves and how you can predict where it will go.
