Harunori Monobe (MIMS research fellow) was awarded the FY2015 MSJ Prize for Excellent Young Applied Mathematicians from the Mathematical Society of Japan (MSJ) on March 17, 2016.

The MSJ Prize for Excellent Young Applied Mathematicians was established in 2013. The Prize is awarded to those of age below 40 who have obtained outstanding results in the field of Applied Mathematics.

One of four winners of FY2015 is:
Name: Harunori Monobe (Research Promoter at Organization for the Strategic Coordination of Research and Intellectual Properties, Meiji University)
Title of research: “Condition for existence of traveling wave solutions, composed of convex curves, to an interface equation”

Abstract: 

Interface equations which moved by curvature are proposed in various mathematical models, .e.g., mean curvature flow describing grain boundary motion and eikonal-curvature equation for action potential propagation. Moreover, in recent years, it was reported that the interface equations are appeared as the singular limit problem of reaction diffusion systems of the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction and population dynamics (For more details, see Ei-Yanagida[‘94] and Tsujikawa-Mimura[‘96])

In this research, we treated a general interface equation with external driving force and showed the existence of traveling wave to the interface equation under a restricted condition. In addition, it was shown that, if there exists a traveling wave, then every traveling wave is convex. This result is applicable to some free boundary problem. This is a joint work with Professor Hirokazu Ninomiya.

This is a joint research with Professor Hirokazu Ninomiya (Meiji University).
