Despite many advances in earthquake science, the tendency for faults to host earthquake slip, aseismic slip or slow slip events is far from well understood. Earthquakes are not yet predictable in a meaningful way, and laboratory observations do not satisfactorily explain many general observations of fault slip. Existing data has been gathered at slip velocities orders of magnitude faster than pl ...

Transnational Force of Law (TFL)

Start date: 01 Sep 2015, End date: 31 Aug 2020,

Global law is changing fundamentally. New forms of law creation, new modes of adjudication, and new enforcement mechanisms in the transnational constellation challenge our understanding of law as a state-based phenomenon. The attending boom in research on transnational law has significantly contributed to our understanding of its structure and functioning. However, existing normative accounts of t ...

Building and bypassing plant polyspermy blocks (bi-BLOCK)

Start date: 01 Sep 2015, End date: 31 Aug 2020,

The ultimate goal for the survival of all species on earth is to reproduce. This uncompromising principle has triggered the evolution of numerous adaptations. One strategy commonly employed by sexually reproducing eukaryotes is the production of tremendous amounts of sperm to maximize the likelihood of an egg becoming fertilised. High sperm to egg ratios are, however, associated with an increased ...

Over the last 20 years, qualitative methods in political science have developed rapidly on three dimen-sions. First, set theory was formulated as an alternative to what is called the quantitative worldview. Second, process tracing for the analysis of mechanisms evolved as a complement to the estimation of marginal effects. Process tracing has also been tied to Bayesianism as opposed to frequentism ...
