This page introduces the research project on "Dynamical systems theory for hydrospheric environments", which is selected as a JST PRESTO project in 2008.
Topics(2008/6/14) The symposium "JST Presto Symposium on Mathematical Sciences towards Environmental Problems" was held from July 11th to 13th at Department of mathematics, Hokkaido University.
Summary of the project
The aim of the project is creating a mathematical theory of nonlinear dynamical systems that is applicable toward environmental problems in hydrosphere such as rivers, lakes, inland seas and ponds. Developing mathematical theory and efficient numerical methods for inviscid incompressible fluids in multiply connected regions, I study the flow pattern formation and evolution of coherent vortex structures and passive/reactive/biological particles. I search for the possible applications of these mathematical and numerical techniques to real world problems under advice of researchers on environmental science.
The project consists of the following three sub-projects;
