About Our School (Mathematical Sciences Program)

A vision for Human Resources Development within the Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences

The Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences aims to contribute to the welfare of humankind and fulfill social innovation by elucidating complex systems that appear in nature, society, and biological world. Under this ideology, we intend to foster human resources who have highly-sophisticated broad elements of mathematical sciences, and whom will be able to work and research internationally to bridge mathematics and sciences.
Our master’s program aims to educate future researchers and professionals who have the skills and ideas of mathematical sciences.
The doctor’s program, on top of the master’s program’s aim to foster human resources with high skills in mathematical sciences, will guide students to further advance their research.

At the Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences, we aim to train future researchers who can contribute in a wide area of society. In doing so, the fundamentals of our education and research will be mathematical science based on building an understanding and having an insight to an extraction model. We have also organized a curriculum with the emphasis on “modeling”, “mathematical analysis”, and “simulation.”
Also, our training will not be restricted to natural sciences, but will have the aspect of cross-field type education in both science and humanities which will enable one to acquire the skills to mathematically elucidate phenomenon in various fields.
Furthermore, to prepare students to become active internationally, students will have the opportunity to visit not only domestic but also international institutions abroad through various exchange programs.

Outline of research and study guideline of the Mathematical Sciences Program and Simulation (Doctoral Program)

The education and research guidance at the Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences will be further evolved based on the achievement of the MIMS Ph.D. Program.
In the doctor’s curriculum, “Project of Mathematical Modeling and Analysis I ~ VI” is available in which students will plan and manage research projects by themselves under the supervision of the MIMS fellows. In addition, “Inter-Departmental Course” can be chosen as optional subjects. This course offers a number of multilingual graduate researches, such as “Fundamentals of Communication and Seminar Skills in English” and “Fundamentals of Academic Writing Techniques in English.” These subjects are taught by native English-speaking professors who specialize in academic English teaching.
Moreover, students are encouraged to take part in the credit transfer program with Hiroshima University, Ryukoku University, and Shizuoka University.
Multiple Guidance Structure by a Research Guidance Team
The focal point of the Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences is the research guidance system that will be applied to all students. Under this system, students will be supervised with consolidation of a fusion of modeling (mathematical description of phenomena,), simulation (analysis of phenomena), and mathematical analysis, which are all crucial for the effective study of mathematical modeling and analysis. Supervisors will be chosen from each of these fields, and make up “Team Fellow” which will be responsible for overlooking the student’s research versatilely. Especially outstanding is the fact that amongst MIMS fellows and research fellows, there are many leading academics in the field of mathematical modeling and analysis, coming not only from Meiji but also from other various institutions.
Model Research Themes

Examples of research topics that would be supervised by Team Fellows are as follows:

・Example 1 :
Title: Theoretical Analysis of Cellular Information Processing Systems
Modeling supervisor: mathematical biology specialist in biological phenomena modeling to his/hers credit
Simulation supervisor: specialist in large-scale numerical modeling
Mathematical analysis supervisor: specialist in network geometric analysis

・ Example 2 :
Title: An analysis of the dynamics of share prices and the possibility of its accurate predictions
Modeling supervisor: a specialist in financial engineering with strong history ofcollaborative research with finance professionals
Simulation supervisor: a specialist in computer assistance / image enhancementanalysis
Mathematical analysis supervisor: a specialist in probabilistic logic / time series Analysis

・Example 3 :
Title: Spontaneous structural formations in nature
Modeling supervisor: a specialist in the mathematic theories of self-organization
Simulation supervisor: a specialist in modeling simulation analysis
Mathematical analysis supervisor: a specialist in the mathematical analysis of spontaneously occurring patterns in nature

・Example 4 :
Title: Visual illusion and pattern recognition, practical use of structures
Modeling supervisor: specialist in large degrees on freedom, non-linear and non-equilibrium modeling
Simulation supervisor: a specialist in simulation sciences
Mathematical analysis supervisor: a specialist in non-liner / non-equilibrium theory

Research themes related to mathematical modeling and analysis, in addition to those mentioned above, will be supported by a team of institute fellows and/or research fellows who are all engaged at MIMS.
