ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Research at the Faculty of Science is outstanding in many areas. It covers a wide range of fields - from elementary particles in the atomic nucleus, to the outer limits of the universe - from the amazing microcosm of the cell, to the complex ecosystems in the oceans.

Ab initio simulations of electronic spectra i liquids and dynamics in excited states
Svenska sammanfattningHur bryts en kemisk binding? Vad händer i vanligt vatten på en mikroskopisk nivå? Mycket av vår grundläggande förståelse av kemiska reaktioner och växelverkan mellan molekyler baseras på teoretiska metoder. Men realismen i dessa modeller måste ständigt frågasättas. Därför är ...
A comparative study of English and Hungarian mathematics teachers' beliefs and practices
Funded by the British Council and the Hungarian Ministry of Culture, the project, by means of teacher surveys, interviews and lesson observations, aimed to understand how mathematics is construed and presented in the two countries' classrooms. Quantitative and qualitative analyses highlighted ...
Action research in mathematics education
Lisa Björklund Boistrup
One of my fields of research is to perform participatory action research together with teachers. In the uploaded reports you can read about projects on feedback and communication in mathematics classrooms (in Swedish).Below are links to other texts deriving from action resarch projects (in ...
Adaptation to climate change for both northern and southern species
Both mitigation of causes of climate change and adaptations to the changes are necessary steps to take for the society. Adaptations to climate change generally lie behind. This is highly true for biodiversity conservation, which is here addressed. The project has three components: refugia for ...
Adults' mathematics: In work and for school
Lisa Björklund Boistrup
School knowledge versus everyday knowledge is a fundamental issue in mathematics education. The objective of this research project is to describe, analyze and understand adults´ mathematics-containing work competences - including social, ethnic and gender related aspects - in relation to the ...
Advanced Computer Simulation Methods for Predictive Molecular Modeling
The general objective of this research project is development of new computer simulation methods and techniques having primary application area in biomolecular and nanomaterials modeling. The new methodologies, based on the fundamental physical principles and theory, will enhance the predictive ...
Aesthetics of Science Education
It is well known that students who choose the National Science Program in high school mainly are recruited from homes where parents have tertiary education. Nonetheless our research has demonstrated that there are some schools going against this pattern. Evidently schools can make a difference for ...
A gene route to diet analysis: Developing High Throughput Sequencing as a Tool for Food web Research and Analysis
Progress in the ecological analysis of food webs, of importance in both conservation of endangered species, pest control programs and basic ecological research, is hampered by limitations in the diet analysis for many important species. Many species have no larger diet remains in the gut and ...
For every particle there is an antiparticle, which is (as far as we know) a perfect mirror image, except that it has opposite charge. Mixing antiprotons and antielectrons (called positrons) one can combine them to antihydrogen, i.e. the antimatter counterpart to ordinary hydrogen. This was done by ...
Assessing scientific literacy as readiness to deal with civic issues concerned with science
Studies have shown that people does not necessarily apply science learnt in scholastic environment in their everyday civic (or professional) life. Use of science in everyday civic life would consequently benefit from being assessed in contexts that are as similar to everyday civic life as possible. ...
