Advanced Mathematical Sciences D (FY2011)

Introduction to Mathematics in Earth Sciences

 Knowledge of Earth calls for a multi-disciplinary study which necessarily makes use of the most advanced methods of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Ecology, Mathematics and Information Technology. Also. the research to be developed includes subjects ranging from data acquisition, with not only traditional techniques but also the most advanced resources of our time to the development of new modeling methodologies for the simulation and reproduction and prediction.
 The lectures will be on the most-advanced topics on the Earth Sciences and given in an omnibus style by internationally leading researchers. The contents of the lecture series will be beyond that of existing Departmental Course and interdisciplinary. The lectures will be held in English and the report to be submitted for grading should be written in English as a rule.
