## Algebra KU Leuven

NUMBER THEORY AND ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY

1) Study of the number of solutions of polynomial equations in several variables over finite fields and residue class rings, with emphasis on the relation to geometric and topological invariants of the equations, Igusa's local zeta function, p-adic exponential sums.

2) Connections between (1) and the theory of singularities, resolution of singularities, Log Minimal Model Program, topological ...

## 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 ...

## Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science KU Leuven

The Centre for Logic and Analytic Philosophy (CLAW) co-ordinates all research at the Institute of Philosophy concerning logic and analytic philosophy, with a special focus on the philosophy of particular sciences.

The Centre cooperates with other Belgian scholars at the National Centre for Research in Logic and international researchers in philosophy of science research programmes. The Centre is very active in the organization of ...

## Analysis KU Leuven

The research in this section is divided into two research groups. The group of classical analysis is mainly interested in orthogonal polynomials, special functions, approximation theory, Riemann-Hilbert problems and random matrices, whereas the functional analysis group focusses its attention on C*-algebras, von Neumann algebras, topological dynamics, geometric and measurable group theory and subfactors . There are however important synergies ...
