The constant collaboration in research with the industry significantly contributes to the added value to your 'real-life' and 'up-to-date' learning experience. By connecting with the industry you’ll get a glimpse of the world behind the programme, a chance to learn from experienced people in the field and to contribute in achieving a shared real-life goal.

The following groups conduct research within a variety of fields, in alphabetical order:


Analysis group

The research of the chair of Analysis focuses on two main themes: functional analytic methods in partial differential equations and stochastic evolution equations, and spectral theory and noncommutative analysis. Read more...


Mathematical Physics group

Some main themes in the research of the Mathematical Physics group are data-assimilation, simulation of transport processes, high performance computing, differential equations and asymptotic and stochastic differential equations. Read more...


Numerical Analysis group

The research program of the Numerical Analysis group belongs to the field of computational science and engineering. They focus on the development and application of computing methods to the applied sciences. Examples are in fluid dynamics, mechanical models, electro-magnetic problems and financial engineering.

Optimisation group

Optimisation plays a role in all aspects of society. From technology to university, from government to industry, everywhere the control of costs and the reduction of costs are crucial and techniques for optimization are indispensable. Examples of research in the Optimisation group are algorithms and complexity, mixed linear programming and discrete and computational geometry. Read more...


Applied Probability group

Probability theory is the mathematical theory of objects and processes in which randomness plays a role. Examples include fluctuations of stock markets and uncertainty in railway networks. The applied probability group’s research areas include mathematical statistical physics, ergodic theory, fractals, risk and finance.

Under the applied probability group there is another group: the Risk Analysis group. They focus on methodological developments that support innovative applications; traditional technical risk analysis as well as various emerging areas (financial and business risk). Read more...


Statistics group

In many fields of science and engineering, people wish to answer questions like: Does this new therapy work better than the old one? What is the expected residual lifetime of a patient suffering AIDS? What is the risk that a financial institution is exposed to? To answer these, sound statistical modelling and analysis of the data are needed. The group’s research focuses on infinite dimensional, non-parametric models. Read more...
