Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences I (FY2010)

Jamming and Mathematical Sciences (in Japanese)

 “Jamming” is a phenomenon of the interruption which appears in various flows. These days, we can find the “Jamming” easily- not only car traffic jams on motorways but phenomena of “Jamming” everywhere in our daily life. However, it is still very rare to comprehend such phenomena interdisciplinary which appear in various fields. In this lecture series, the first step is to deeply understand the structure of the phenomenon of traffic jam from various points of view through the study by both phenomenal and mathematical aspects. Next, to study other various jamming phenomena and their mathematical approaches will provide us opportunities to find the fundamental rules behind such phenomena and to consider whether to apply to social problems using their composed systems in cross-cutting and positive ways.
 In the first half of this lectures series, we focus on the phenomena of “Jamming”, which appear in the existing dynamics of traffic streams, using methods of mathematical analyses of various mathematical models. In the next half, the lectures will be delivered in omnibus style form the interdisciplinary perspectives as applications of mathematical models by top leading researchers from various research fields, such as; economy, climate change, powder and granular materials, bacteria, packet-transfer communication network, logistic network and so forth.
