Twenty-three recent doctorate recipients have been awarded a Veni grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for research at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the UvA’s Academic Medical Centre (AMC-UvA).

Of the recipients, two are employed at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics:

  • Dr Sonja Cox 
    Numerical analysis of non-lineair stochastic partial differential equations
    Many processes in the sciences are described by (non-linear) stochastic partial differential equations. For these equations, there are no explicit solutions. Numerical approximations are therefore used in order to gain an understanding of the underlying process. Through her research, Sonja Cox will demonstrate that such approximations can be made efficiently.

  • Dr Guus Regts 
    Making large networks mathematically understandable
    Researchers have developed the concept of graph limits in order to analyse huge networks like Facebook and the Internet with the aid of mathematics. In this project, Guus Regts will study graph limits using models from statistical mechanics.
