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.

Probability theory
The research programme Probability Theory focuses on probability theory and on operations research.

Theory
Many important topics in computer science, such as the correctness of software, the efficiency of algorithms and the modeling of complicated systems, depend on sound theoretical underpinnings. In the Theory group, we study these fundamental building blocks and develop verification methods to prove system…

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.

Regulators of integrin α6β4 function
This thesis describes our search to identify and understand possible regulatory mechanisms of integrin α6β4 in cellmatrix adhesion and intracelular signaling.

Lightactivatable metallodrugs and metalfunctionalized liposomes
Metalcontaining molecules combine geometrical features and a reactivity that are inherently different from that of organic molecules. My research focuses on lightactivatable metalbased anticancer drugs and metalfunctionalized liposomes. Light is a very selective way to activate photosensitive drugs…

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…
