Crossroads of empires: archaeology, material culture and socio-political relationships in West Africa
ID: 263747
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Knowledge of the last 1000 years in the West African Sahel comes largely from historical sources, which say that many regions were ruled by vast polities. The aim of my archaeological project is to seize how, in fact, lhe 'empires' of this region structured the landscape, and...

A revealed preference analysis of household consumption models
ID: 263707
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
There is a huge variety in models for consumption behaviour of multi-person households that take into account the individual preferences of household members and the resulting household decision process. The difference stems from the modelling of the household decision proces...

Single Molecule Enzymology with ClyA Nanopores
ID: 260884
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Single molecules based techniques provide the ultimate toolkit to study complex biological systems. In single-molecule approaches, molecules do not need to be synchronised as in ensemble studies, and rare and/or transient species along a reaction pathway as well as heterogene...

Objects in sight: the neural basis of visuomotor transformations for actions towards objects
ID: 260607
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
Humans and other primates possess an exquisite capacity to grasp and manipulate objects. The seemingly effortless interaction with objects in everyday life is subserved by a number of cortical areas of the visual and the motor system. Recent research has highlighted that dors...

Speciation through fungi? - The role of mycorrhizal associations in orchid diversification
ID: 260601
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
The Orchidaceae is the most diverse family of angiosperms with an estimated number of over 24,000 species. It has long been believed that co-evolution with pollinating animals has played an instrumental role in the unparalleled diversification of the Orchidaceae. Many orchid ...

Dependable Performance on Many-Thread Processors
ID: 259295
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Contemporary microprocessors seek at improving performance through thread-level parallelism by co-executing multiple threads on a single microprocessor chip. Projections suggest that future processors will feature multiple tens to hundreds of threads, hence called many-thread...

Simulation, Optimization and Control of High-Altitude
Wind Power Generators
ID: 259166
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
A new class of large scale wind power generators shall be investigated via mathematical modelling, computer simulation and multidisciplinary optimization methods. The underlying technical idea is to use fast flying tethered airfoils that fly in altitudes of several hundred me...

Ultralow power photonic integrated circuits for short range interconnect networks
ID: 259076
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
It is now generally recognized that current electrical solutions will not suffice to fulfil all requirements for communication on-chip and between chips, which is expected to continue to grow exponentially during the coming years. Therefore we have to look for alternatives. O...

Mid-InfraRed Active photonic integrated Circuits for Life
sciences and Environment
ID: 258934
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
My group will explore the new field of photonic integrated circuits for the mid infrared (MIR) wavelength band based on high-index contrast waveguide structures. This research is fueled by the need for compact, integrated solutions for spectroscopic sensor systems in the MIR ...

Structured low-rank approximation: Theory, algorithms, and applications
ID: 258581
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Today's state-of-the-art methods for data processing are model based. We propose a fundamentally new approach that does not depend on an explicit model representation and can be used for model-free data processing. From a theoretical point of view, the prime advantage of the ...
