“Elucidation of various natural and social phenomena using mathematics and physics”
The goal of the Department of Mathematical Sciences is to create models of various natural and social phenomena that occur around us and elucidate them, based on the understanding and knowledge of mathematics and physics.
Specialized fields include mathematical statistics, financial engineering, cryptography, the theory of differential equations, nonlinear dynamics, complex dynamics, quantum physics, and solid state physics. The department conducts stateoftheart research in these fields.
“Making good use of natural science
Effective use of mathematics and physics, from basics to application, in scientific and technological development”
The Department of Mathematical Sciences aims to develop highly qualified engineers, specialists and researchers with full knowledge regarding the basics and application of mathematical sciences, which serves as the fundamental source of modern engineering as a whole, and with the ability to apply it, who are committed to contributing to society and have good engineering ethics. More specifically, the department aims to develop engineers and researchers who can elucidate natural and social phenomena using mathematical models and have advanced knowledge and research and development ability enabling them to use the results from the aforementioned elucidation in engineering applications; and to develop engineers and researchers who can experimentally and mathematicalscientifically elucidate phenomena in condensed matter physics and semiconductor physics and have the advanced knowledge and research and development ability which are necessary to create new electronics devices and support an advanced information society.
The department also offers a variety of basic research and education courses, such as research in experimental design methods and multivariate analysis, construction and analysis of mathematical economics models, research in cryptology and coding theory, qualitative research on differential equations, theoretical research on dynamics of nonequilibrium nonlinear systems, theoretical research on nonequilibrium statistical mechanics/complex systems, theoretical research on physical properties such as superconductivity, magnetism and optical properties, and experimental research on the electronic state of various compounds using photoemission, xray absorption and xray emission spectroscopies. One of the advantages of the department is that students can obtain teacher certification in mathematics and science (specialized) at junior and senior high school levels.
