In this thesis Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) is explored in galaxy clusters similar to the Virgo cluster. MOND is a theory proposed to explain the flat rotation curves of galaxies and the velocities of galaxies within galaxy clusters, as an alternative to the Dark Matter (DM) model. MOND states that Newton’s law of gravitation is incorrect...

Phylogenetic networks are used to describe evolutionary histories and are a generalisation of evolutionary trees. They can contain so called reticulations, representing reticulate evolution, such as hybridization, lateral gene transfer and recombination. Methods are being developed to construct certain rooted phylogenetic networks from their...

In 1961 Kasteleyn solved the dimer problem. With the use of Pfaffans he managed to find a formula to enumerate the number of perfect matchings on a lattice graph. In this thesis we take another look at the methods Kasteleyn used. Besides that, we proof that for an m × n lattice graph on the torus, where m and n are even, there does not exist a...

Robust optimisation is shown to be extremely important in a wide range of applications including real life. Many research projects are dedicated to this relatively young and active research field and show the significant value of robust optimisation. Since many researchers have developed complex methods dedicated to robust optimisation, the aim...

In this thesis, we study the asymptotic behaviour and the dynamics of a one-dimensional active particle model with excluded volume interactions. The model is a version of run-and-tumble motion, where a particle performs both symmetric random walks and active transport. The direction and the speed of the transport are governed by an internal...

Level-set percolation on the Discrete Gaussian Free Field (DGFF) turned out to be a hot topic within mathematical physics over the last couple of years. In particular, the DGFF on Z^d , with homogeneously weighted nearest-neighbour interactions, i.e. all conductances equal to 1, has been studied in detail. These models can be simulated with...

As quantum computers are developing, they are beginning to become useful for practical applications, for example in the field of quantum metrology. In this work, a variational quantum algorithm is used to find an optimal probe state for measuring parameters in a noisy environment. This is achieved by optimizing a cost on a quantum computer,...

In this thesis, the diffusive limit of active particle motion in R<sup>d</sup> is studied via a technique based on homogenisation. Thereafter, this study is extended to active particle motion on a Riemannian manifold. <br/><br/>Furthermore, as an application of active particle motion, a connection is made with the Dirac equation. On the basis of...

In this work, Clebsch-Gordan coefficients are studied from both a quantum mechanical and a mathematical perspective. In quantum mechanics, Clebsch-Gordan coefficients arise when two quantum systems with a certain angular momentum are combined and the total angular momentum is to be found. We start by discussing the relevant postulates of quantum...

context: The long-term evolution of a self-gravitating astrophysical disk can be modeled using secular perturbation theory. Recently, Batygin published a paper where he claims that such a disk with a special density can be described by a Schrödinger equation by using this method. aims: In this thesis, we will study the secular perturbation...

A model is designed for solving gravitational profiles of self-gravitating and rotating planets via the use of Poisson's equation for total gravity, i.e., the sum of the gravitational and rotational potential. Poisson's equation is a partial differential equation that is solved with the usage of Green's functions. This is a major advantage...

With the rapid development of Quantum Computers (QC) and QC Simulators, there will be an increased demand for functioning Quantum Algorithms in the near future. Some of the most ubiquitously useful algorithms are solvers for linear systems of equations. Since the conception of the Quantum Linear Solver Algorithm (QLSA) by Harrow, Hassidim and...

This thesis analyzes the occurence of the quantum Zeno effect in a qubit in different situations. A system with a particle with spin 1/2, which represents a qubit, and detector is considered. The detector is modeled by a coordinate q, which has a Gaussian distribution with dispersion σ. There is the free evolution of the qubit and the...

Quantum networks play an important role in the fields of quantum information and quantum computation. One of the current problems for these networks concerns nonlocality. Characterizing and detecting nonlocality is relevant to the implementation of quantum networks and quantum repeaters, where Bell inequalities can be used to test if...

Plastic pollution is a big problem all over the world. Every year more plastic is produced, a lot of plastic litter is mismanaged and enters the ocean. It’s important to know where these plastics accumulate. With this information the problem can be quantified and the plastic litter can be cleaned up. In this project, the transport of micro...
