The Death of Archaeological Theory
The Death of Archaeological Theory, edited by John Bintliff and Mark Pearce, addresses the provocative subject of whether it is time to discount the burden of somewhat dogmatic theory and ideology that has built up over the last 25 years.

ALGANT
Fundamental research in the ALgebra, Geometry And Number Theory

Mathematical Institute
Mathematics forms the basis of many innovations in technology, the service industry and science, such as data analysis and coding, artificial intelligence, weather or climate change modelling or understanding molecular processes. The researchers from the Mathematical Institute (MI) are constantly developing…

Career prospects
The Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory specialisation is the excellent preparation for a career in research. It is a suitable stepping stone for pursuing a PhD degree. The degree also gives you access to job opportunities outside academia.

Theorie van fermionpariteitomkeringen in supergeleiders
Majorana meets a mermaid

Inverse Jacobian and related topics for certain superelliptic curves
To an algebraic curve C over the complex numbers one can associate a nonnegative integer g, the genus, as a measure of its complexity.

On the 16rank of class groups of quadratic number fields
Promotores: P. Stevenhagen, E. Fouvry (Univeriste Paris Saclay)

On the randommatrix theory of Majorana fermions in topological superconductors
The thesis mainly contributes to the characterization of Majorana fermions as they appear in the Condensed Matter context.

Sentencing: theory and practice
Sentencing is becoming increasingly complex for the courts. Legal scholars and criminologists from Leiden document the process of sentencing in the Netherlands. They use this knowledge to advise legislators and those who implement this legislation on how to make sentencing more consistent and effect…

The Oxford Handbook of Morphological Theory
Edited by linguists Jenny Audring (Leiden University) and Francesca Masini (University of Bologna), this is a unique handbook with a focus on morphology theories rather than morphological data. It covers a wide array of morphological theories, from traditional twentieth century models to current theoretical…

Jan Zaanen Group (Quantum Matter Theory)
The focus of our theoretical physics research is the nature of macroscopic matter that is in one or the other way still in the grip of quantum physics.

Why Leiden University?
The Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory specialisation gives you profound knowledge of pure mathematics. The focus is on both fundamental mathematics and on applications in other sciences, society and industry. During your master’s you will be part of one of the multidisciplinary research teams at the…

Koenraad Schalm Group (String Theory and Experiment)
Truth is stranger than fiction. In 1997 Juan Maldaceña discovered a remarkable dictionary that translates equation for equation the physics of black holes in string theory into the more conventional physics of quantum mechanics of interacting particles. The remarkable possibility exists that…

Cultural Analysis: Literature and Theory (MA)
The master in Cultural Analysis: Literature and Theory at Leiden University focuses on the study of literature from a comparative and theoretical perspective, with a special emphasis on literary movements and genres of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. It covers a wide range of languages and cultures…

About the programme
The master’s programme offers two researchoriented specialisations where you can focus on Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory or Applied Mathematics. You can also combine Mathematics with education, management or science communication.

Positive representations on ordered Banach spaces
Promotor: A. Doelman, Copromotor: M.F.E. de Jeu

Political Theory: Legitimacy and Justice (MSc)
This political theory specialisation focuses on the concepts of legitimacy and justice—political philosophy’s core themes. Immersing yourself in theories, philosophical and theoretical methods, and complex cases, you will make the leap from opinion to analysis.

Deciphering fermionic matter: from holography to field theory
Promotor: K.E. Schalm, Copromotor: S.S. Lee

Politics of Withdrawal Media, Arts, Theory
'Politics of Withdrawal' considers the significance of practices and theories of withdrawal for radical thinking today.

didactic Peter Kop encourages high school students to make friends with algebraic formulas
For many high school students, mathematical formulas are nothing more than abracadabra. Didactic and mathematics teacher Peter Kop wants to change this. For his PhD research, he devised a new series of lessons full of drawing assignments that learn students to assign more meaning to the formulas. Kop:…

Torsion points on elliptic curves over number fields of small degree

Diego Garlaschelli Group (Econophysics and Network Theory)
We study the structure, dynamics and physics of complex networks emerging from the intricate interconnectedness of the constituents of large systems.

International Humanitarian Law in Theory and Practice
The Summer School on International Humanitarian Law is designed by the Grotius Centre KalshovenGieskes Forum on International Humanitarian Law. The 6th edition will take place from 4 to 8 July 2022 in The Hague.

Memory: concepts and theory
The terms ‘social’ , ‘collective’ or ‘public’ memory, are often contrasted with ‘private’, ‘individual’ or ‘personal’ memory. All these terms derive from a fairly new and interdisciplinary scholarly field that is often referred to as ‘memory studies’, and that according to some critics has developed…

Measures and Matching for Number Systems
This thesis provides explicit expressions for the density functions of absolutely continuous invariant measures for general families of interval maps, that include random maps and infinite measure transformations, not necessarily number systems.

Theoryenriched practical knowledge in mathematics teacher education
This study looks at the question of how and at what level students in primary teacher education can integrate theory and practice, and how the organisation of their learning environment, focusing especially on mathematics and pedagogy, can contribute to that.

Femke Bakker, Hawks and Doves: Democratic Peace Theory Revisited
Is there a causal mechanism underlying the decision to attack another country when on the brink of war? If so, does this mechanism differ between regimetypes? Political scientist Femke Bakker (Leiden University) addresses this question from a political psychological and comparative perspective and…
