最大2名まで受入れ可能 最大2名まで受入れ可能 The aim of the Analysis and Partial Differential Equations (PDE) unit is to reveal and analyze the mathematical principles reflecting natural phenomena expressed by partial differential equations. Research focuses on fundamental analysis of PDEs, regularity theory of elliptic and parabolic PDEs, with special emphasis on the regularity of finite boundary points and the point at ∞, its measure-theoretical, probabilistic and topological characterization, well-posedness of PDE problems in domains with non-smooth and non-compact boundaries, global uniqueness, analysis and classification of singularities, asymptotic laws for diffusion processes, regularity theory of nonlinear degenerate and singular elliptic and parabolic PDEs, free boundary problems, optimal control of free boundary systems with distributed parameters. Current areas of interest include Potential Theory, Harmonic Analysis, Probability Theory, Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control, Optimization, Mathematical Biosciences and Quantum Biology. Some of the current research projects in Applied Mathematics include laser ablation of biomedical tissues; preventing aerodynamic stall by in-flight ice accretion in the aerospace industry; cancer detection through Electrical Impedance Tomography and optimal control theory; identification of parameters in large-scale models of systems biology; optimal control of reactive oxygen species in quantum biology.

海洋生態物理学ユニット

受入れ不可 受入れ不可 The Marine Biophysics Unit (MBU) investigates biological processes in the ocean at varying spatial scales, from micrometers for microbes to thousands of kilometers for biogeographic events, by incorporating physical, mathematical, and biological/genetic approaches. The physical oceanographic resources and expertise at the MBU, coupled with tools in marine biology, molecular biology, and paleontology, provide a unique laboratory system for studying marine biological processes, influenced by powerful disturbances (e.g., typhoons) and climatic forcings (e.g., global warming). The MBU was established at OIST in 2009, because of Okinawa’s ideal geographic position and access to the outstanding research resources of OIST. The MBU supports students and postdocs with a variety of backgrounds; however, fluid dynamics and physical oceanography are fundamental to all of the Unit’s research. In particular, MBU welcomes students and postdocs who are interested in employing physical and mathematical approaches to understand marine biological systems.

The goals of these experiments aim to cool a macroscopic object towards its quantum ground state and to create a macroscopic quantum superposition. Such a macroscopic quantum superposition or Schrodinger Cat - is one of the most discussed phenomena in quantum mechanics. Such an object could be useful to probe some very fundamental questions in science - how does quantum mechanics interface with gravity? Can such macroscopic quantum states be super useful for quantum sensing e.g. for the search of Dark Matter?
