## 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 ...

## Topological Algebra, Functional Analysis and Category Theory Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The research team investigates mathematical structures that are important in several basic areas of mathematics like geometry, representation theory, functional analysis, differential calculus or theory of approximation. The motivation also comes from outside mathematics, from computer science or physics where some of the mathematical structures that are studied are called upon as models. By application of methods from category theory the ...

## Algebra Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The research unit Algebra develops research on ring theory, groups and semigroups. This includes research on the algebraic structure of important classes of rings and semigroups, such as, group and semigroup rings, lineair groups and submonoids of polycyclic-by-finite groups. The main goals include the description of the unit group of integral group rings, the isomorphism problem of group rings, the characterisation of Noetherian semigroup ...

## Research Centre for Mathematics, Education, Econometrics and Statistics (MEES), Brussels Campus KU Leuven

The Research Centre for Mathematics, Education, Econometrics and Statistics joins staff members who teach courses on mathematics, econometrics or statistics. The research of the group is rather heterogeneous and pertains to domains of mathematics (e.g., differential geometry), education (e.g, strategy choice and strategy development, numerical and mathematical cognition, problem solving, mathematics learning), econometrics (portfolio ...

## Laboratory of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry Hasselt University

The main activity of the research group of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry is the study of environmentally friendly, chemical methods to the synthesis of high-tech, nanostructured inorganic materials.

A water based sol-gel method is developed and optimized successfully for the preparation of ferroelectric, piezoelectric, conductive and dielectric metal oxide powders and thin films (with thicknesses from several hundreds down to a few ...

## Laboratory of Respiratory Diseases and Thoracic Surgery (BREATHE) KU Leuven

- Lung and chest wall mechanics: respiratory function in health and disease and effects of drugs. - Lung toxicology: fundamental mechanisms and epidemiologic research on occupational hazards. - Biochemical and metabolic functions of lung in health and disease and animal models. - Bronchial carcinoma: PET-scan, therapeutic modalities. - Respiratory muscles: animal models and changes in disease. - Difficult asthma. - Pulmonary embolism and ...

## Theragnostic Laboratory KU Leuven

The Theragnostic Laboratory is based on a unique platforms with animal models of relevant pathologies and uses imaging techniques as major experimental tools. The main focus is on original and translational research to find diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for life-threatening disorders such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The research group also trains graduate students and provides services to third parties. There is a close ...
