The Meijer G-function
Many special functions of mathematical physics have a hypergeometric
character and are solutions of a special case of the generalized hyperge-
ometric di_erential equation. The G-functions form a general class of
solutions of this equation. Meijer de_ned these by means of Barnes inte-
grals and studied its properties, in particular its asymptotic expansions.
We will give an introduction to this area by means of an example.

The University of Groningen Faculty of Science and Engineering has won the very first NNV Diversity Award. The Netherlands Physics Association (NNV) has established the award for physics institutions that best put into practice an open diversity policy...
Two promising UG academics, Dr Michael Lerch and Sanne van Dijk, will be able to conduct research at top institutes abroad for two years thanks to the Rubicon programme organized by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
His opponent was fourfold world champion Alexander Schwarzman. Boomstra, who studies Physics at the University of Groningen, also won the title in 2016.
