Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences A (FY2011)

Global Changes and Mathematical Sciences (in Japanese)

 Human society is affected by phenomena such as daily natural phenomena of change in weather, natural disasters such as earthquakes, environmental alterations including climate change and global warming, and phenomena of global-scale changes caused by various environmental problems arising from human activities. Since such changes in phenomena have considerable effect on human society both in a positive and negative way, clarification and prediction of the mechanisms have been required.
 Although a variety of information and knowledge has been accumulated, unexplained problems are widely remained because of their large scale. Mathematical approaches represented by the mathematical modeling and the spatiotemporal data analysis are broadly applied.
 The lectures will be given in an omnibus style by active researchers in earth science and its peripheral fields. Through the lectures, profound understanding of phenomena related to global-scale alterations and mathematical approaches toward them will be acquired and considerations and discussions about how to solve problems will be made.
 The interdisciplinary lectures on the required knowledge and mathematical approaches for studying earth science and its peripheral fields, along with lectures on mathematical techniques which support the study, will be given in an omnibus style. Through the lectures, understanding of the existing method for treating phenomena of global-scale change will be improved and possible approaches to solve the problems will be found.
