Motivic zeta functions and the monodromy conjecture
ID: 306610
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2018-04-30
The monodromy conjecture, formulated in the seventies by the Japanese mathematician Igusa, is one of the most important open problems in the theory of singularities. It predicts a remarkable connection between certain geometric and arithmetic invariants of a polynomial f with...

Effects of phosphorus limitations on Life, Earth system and Society
ID: 610028
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2020-08-31
P is an earthbound and finite element and the prospect of constrained access to mineable P resources has already triggered geopolitical disputes. In contrast to P, availabilities of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) to ecosystems are rapidly increasing in most areas of the globe. T...

Updating the mind: The mechanisms behind behavioural change
ID: 312445
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-01-31
Translation of basic research on human executive control into facilitating behavioural change is a holy grail for psychologists and neuroscientists. Adaptive behaviour is attributed to executive functions that update the cognitive system. But how system updating mechanisms re...

Advancing Behavioral and Cognitive Understanding of Speech
ID: 283435
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
I intend to investigate what cognitive mechanisms give us combinatorial speech. Combinatorial speech is the ability to make new words using pre-existing speech sounds. Humans are the only apes that can do this, yet we do not know how our brains do it, nor how exactly we diffe...

Quantitative methods in stochastic homogenization
ID: 335410
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-08-31
This proposal deals with the development of quantitative tools in stochastic homogenization, and their applications to materials science. Three main challenges will be addressed. First, a complete quantitative theory of stochastic homogenization of linear elliptic equations w...

'Dead End': An Economic and Cultural History of Japan in the Age of the Great Depression, 1927-1937
ID: 240854
Start date: 2009-10-01, End date: 2014-09-30
The project presents an economic history and socio-cultural reconstruction of Japan in the age of the great depression; it is an attempt to demonstrate the depression's 'total' or multicontextual implications by outlining different but complimentary views of wh...

The Great War and Modern Philosophy
ID: 617659
Start date: 2014-10-01, End date: 2019-09-30
"The First World War was an unprecedented event of destruction, transformation, and renewal that left no aspect of European culture unchanged. Philosophy proved no exception: the war motivated an historically singular mobilization of philosophers to write about the war during...

Initial Solar System Composition and Early Planetary Differentiation
ID: 336718
Start date: 2014-03-01, End date: 2019-02-28
Meteorites are privileged witnesses of solar system accretion processes and early planetary evolution. Short-lived radioactive chronometers are particularly adapted in dating and understanding these early differentiation processes. This proposal is dedicated to two main quest...

Holography for realistic black holes and cosmologies
ID: 335146
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
String theory provides with a consistent framework which combines quantum mechanics and gravity. Two grand challenges of fundamental physics - building realistic models of black holes and cosmologies - can be addressed in this framework thanks to novel holographic methods. Re...

Genetic links between development and evolution of the human cerebral cortex
ID: 340020
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
"The mechanisms underlying the evolution of the human brain constitute one of the most fascinating unresolved questions of biology. The cerebral cortex has evolved rapidly in size and complexity in the hominid lineage, which is likely linked to quantitative and qualitative di...
