Research Training Groups

IRTG 1740: Dynamic phenomena in complex networks: fundamentals and applications

The focus within this first German-Brasilian research training group is on Amazonia, the rainforest and a better understanding of partial systems on earth in continuously changing conditions. The investigations are concentrated on the consequences which the deforestation of the area round the Amazon has on the region as a whole as well as on the climate worldwide, with different options of the further development being set up.

RTG 1772: Computer-based system biology

Patterns in the relationship of the structure, dynamics and function of biological systems are investigated in this group. Its work is aimed at developing new theoretical concepts and their application to current problems of cellular biology. It is to contribute to a better understanding of biological phenomena and processes. At the same time the interpretation of biological data is to be further improved and the development of new experimental and practice-related research strategies to be promoted.

IRTG 1792: High-Dimensional Non-Stationary Time Series Analysis

The training program will be run in close collaboration with the Wang Yanan Institute for Studies in Economics, Xiamen University, the first official "Econometrics Key Lab" in China. Berlin students will be trained together with Xiamen students, will be jointly supervised by both Berlin and Xiamen scholars and have to attend the Xiamen course program for at least one semester.
The IRTG is a joint initiative of Humboldt-Universität and Xiamen University, China. Starting in 2013, the IRTG will fund three cohorts of five to six 3-year scholarships. The doctoral students will be trained in the necessary statistical and mathematical foundations and can specialize in various advanced topics in statistics and econometrics. In their doctoral dissertation, they are supposed to focus on recent developments and corresponding applications in high-dimensional time series modeling and forecasting, dimension reduction techniques, covariance estimation and nonparametric analysis. The IRTG is a joint initiative of Humboldt-Universität and Xiamen University, China.

RTG 1939: Philosophy, Science and the Sciences. The dialogue among different forms and models in Ancient Greek, Roman and Arabic thought

This Research Training Group is devoted to the dialogue between different forms and models of knowledge in ancient Greek, Roman and Arabic philosophy and science. Special attention is given to the interface between philosophy and the special sciences, including both the explicit views of ancient thinkers about it and also their actual practice of dealing with the interface between philosophy and the special sciences. We consider it an innovative strength of the program to integrate these dimensions: both the theoretical reflection on the relationship of philosophy and science and the actual practice; both from the perspective of philosophy and from the perspective of special sciences.

RTG 2190: The Literary and Epistemic History of Small Forms

Sketches, abstracts, notes, records, excerpts, essays, articles and glosses: all these ‘small forms’ of writing are an essential part of the practice of research, teaching, art and the media. The Research Training Group “The Literary and Epistemic History of Small Forms” intends to study their emergence and development, with which they are also involved in the success of prose, from antiquity to the present day. The group
will also seek to understand how processes of understanding are controlled, reflected and channelled in specific media using these small forms.

IRTG 2290: Crossing Boundaries: Molecular Interactions in Malaria

Malaria is caused by single-celled parasites known as Plasmodium, which are transmitted by the bite of the Anopheles mosquito. Some basic principles of the progress of the disease and parasite-host interactions are still not understood. The German-Australian International Research Training Group “Crossing Boundaries: Molecular Interactions in Malaria” will therefore investigate the molecular mechanisms of Plasmodium infections as a basis for strategies to develop new drugs and immunisations for improved malaria treatment and prevention.

RTG 2386: Extrospektion: External Acces to Higher Cognitive Processes

Established findings for the science of inner experiences – psychology – are acquired through self-observation, in other words introspection, or through external observation, which is also referred to as extrospection. The latter has long been ignored. The RTG "Extrospection. External Access to Higher Cognitive Processes" seeks to investigate how external scientific access to higher cognitive processes can be achieved at the interface between philosophy, psychology, psychiatry and neurosciences.

IRTG 2403: Dissecting and Reengineering the Regulatory Genome

The aim of the IRTG "Dissecting and Reengineering the Regulatory Genome" is to identify and characterise regulatory processes and DNA sequences that determine the activity of gene expression in eukaryotes. The researchers in Berlin, Germany, and Durham, North Carolina, will use experimental high-throughput methods to analyse the large volumes of acquired data using computer science methods.

RTG 2458: The Dynamics of Demography, Democratic Processes and Public Policy (DYNAMICS)

What impacts does demographic change have on our political system? And how are political decisions about overcoming demographic challenges made? The RTG “The Dynamics of Demography, Democratic Processes and Public Policy (DYNAMICS)” aims to use these fundamental questions to systematically investigate the relationships between demographic development, demographic processes and public policies using an interdisciplinary approach.

RTG 2483: Dynamic Integration - Law in-between Harmonisation and Plurality in Europe (DynamInt)

Brexit, the currency crisis, the democratic deficit, the ‘two-speed Europe’ – in recent years, European integration has experienced repeated setbacks. The RTG “Dynamic Integration – Law in-between Harmonisation and Plurality in Europe (DynamInt)” aims to analyse disintegrative processes of this kind and the insistence on nation-state sovereignty from a legal perspective. The harmonisation and plurality of European law should be understood as equally important mechanisms of European integration.

RTG 2575: Rethinking Quantum Field Theory

In recent years important innovations in QFT occurred leading the community to a serious rethinking of its core concepts. These include the methodology of perturbation theory, dualities and hidden symmetries, the prominent role of effective field theory in fundamental physics, modern on-shell methods for scattering amplitudes and the gradient flow methodology in lattice field theory. The further development of these methods and concepts of modern QFT leading to a deep rethinking of it provides the common basis of this proposed research training group (RTG). We designed a timely qualification program for the new generation of quantum field theorists.
