Department of Mathematics: Algebra and Geometry Ghent University

The research of the department is situated in the area of fundamental mathematics, more precisely in algebra and geometry. Some of the central themes of our research are: (1) finding connections between group theory and non-associative algebraic structures; (2) the study of Tits buildings and related geometrical objects; (3) the study of topological groups acting on geometrical structures; (4) the study of exceptional groups (including the ...

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 ...

Fundamental Mathematics University of Antwerp

The research group of Fundamental Mathematics in Antwerp covers a broad range of research fields from algebra over geometry to analysis. In more detail, the research areas represented by the professors and their research teams are:- Karim Becher:Quadratic forms, field arithmetic, central simple algebras, Brauer groups, linear algebraic groups.- David Eelbode:Conformally invariant operators, representation theory, spin groups, Clifford analysis.- ...

Mathematics-TW Vrije Universiteit Brussel


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 ...
