Foundations of the Exact Science Vrije Universiteit Brussel
From the birth of science, mathematics and physics have played a major role and their evolution has always been closely connected. Pythagoras, Aristotle, Ezeno, Euclid, Archimedes, etc . . . till our times, Riemann, Hilbert, Einstein, Poincare, Heisenberg, Schrodinger, Dirac, Von Neumann, Godel, etc . . . Have all wandered between mathematics and theoretical physics, investigating the fundamental scientific problems of their times. In this ...

The main research topics of the department WISK are: 1. p-adic analysis The functions studied in the mathematical analysis have real and complex values. One can replace the real or complex numbers by other numbers: the p-adic numbers (p is a prime). These numbers have properties that are rather different from the properties of real numbers. For instance when calculating with p-adic numbers rounding errors do not occur. The analysis built on ...

Research topics of this research unit are:
• Crystallographic and Bieberbach groups and their generalizations, both from an algebraic and geometrical point of view.
• Affine and polynomial structures for (virtual) polycyclic groups, conceptual and computational aspects and applications
• Group actions on varieties, algebraic topological and geometric characteristics.
• Topological fixed point theory.
