My major is Applied Mathematics (Nonlinear Analysis). In paricular, I am interested in understanding highly nonlinear and complex phenomena observed in the evaluations of incompressible fluid motions; I am also interested in interdisciplinary mathematical studies (Math. Meteorology, Medicals, Material Sciences, Mathematical Modeling etc); I am the chief coordinator of Math Clinic Program (MACS Program). The topics in my current research are:
- Topological fluid mechanics (Topological Flow Data Analysis)
- Dissipative weak solutions of the Euler equations and Turbulence theory
- Vortex Dynamics (Point Vortex on Closed Surface)
- Flow control of vortex dominated flows
- Singularity formation and long-time behavior of vortex dynamics
- Applied and Computational Complex Analysis
- Interdisciplinary Studies (Mathematical Meteorology, Math Clinic at Kyoto U)
- Research Topic: Topological and geometric fluid mechanics, Turbulence Theory, Vortex Dynamics, Mathematical Meteorology, Mathematical Modeling, Interdisciplinary Mathematics.
- Topics in Mathematics: Nonlinear dynamical systems, Bifurcation theory, Partial differential equations, Numerical Analysis, Topology, Symplectic geometry.
- Topics in Numerical methods: Vortex method, Spectral method, Fast tree-codes, Fast Multipole Method, Numerical Conformal mapping
