# Division of Science

**Mathematics Course**

Joy of discovery that no one yet knows in the world.

Contemporary mathematics has been covered traditional pure mathematics and applied mathematics, and furthermore basic programming theory. Contemporary mathematics serves as a language describing science. Mathematics course offers a wide range of courses including pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and computational science. Furthermore, we offer detailed research guidance for our students.

## Mathematics Course Graduate Program Description

### Mathematics Actively Engaging to Solve problems

The field of mathematics has been covered physics, engineering, and more recently, biology, economics, and sociology. Mathematics serves not only as the language to express precisely the equations of differential equations and stochastic differential equations, but also as essential tools analyzing the equations. The division engages in a wide variety of the leading-edge mathematics research, enabling our students to experience the attractive power of mathematics.

### Acquiring Advanced Mathematics / Mathematical

Our curriculum teaches advanced mathematics/mathematical science beyond the undergraduate basic knowledge. For the graduate students aiming at teaching career, the division offers opportunities to acquire teaching skill necessary for educators. For the graduate students aiming at research positions, we offer more advanced mathematical subjects leading to the foremost mathematical researches.

### Research Leading to Social Development

Mathematical theories serve as the foundation of indispensable technologies in modern society such as computer technology, coded messages, security technology, mathematical modeling of various phenomena, risk management, etc. For some technologies, leading-edge findings in pure mathematics are used. Not only applied mathematics but also pure mathematics findings eventually lead to social progress.

### Mathematics-Working in a Globalized Field

Research level in mathematics in Japan is highest in the world. Mathematics, the common language of science, is a highly globalized disciple. Some graduate students are invited to present their research at international conferences. In principle, mathematical results are independent from languages and other cultures. With our students’ Master’s thesis contributing to the field, if s/he submits a paper in English, her/his work is widely known to the professional community. In our Master’s program, we extensively read articles in English, and students get used to working in English.

**Physics Course**

Inquiring the Law of Nature, Mastering the Law of Physics

The field of physics pursues the law of nature, i.e., the law of physics, and explores the principles how the nature works. The field has a wide variety of materials, ranging from particles, atoms, molecules, solids, and celestial objects/space, and the research field and its methodology are generally classified into these scales.

## Physics Course Graduate Program Description

### Attractive and Leading-edge Education and Research Environment

Physics Course works to advanced basic science and studies a wide range of academic area such as material science, global environment, meteorological phenomena, and astrophysics, attempting to explore how the nature had been created and to support various contemporary technological innovations. We conduct research and education using our leading-edge experiment equipment, such as astronomical observatory.

Furthermore, our collaboration with domestic and overseas researchers includes material science research using synchrotron facility in Japan and overseas astronomical observatories. We offer graduate-level courses, jointly with Synchrotron Radiation Research Center, Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. Our graduate students receive individualized supervision from their academic advisers, enabling them to undertake challenges in their research toward the unknown field and enhancing their uncultivated potential. Our graduates engage in research and development at private firms, continue their research, and become an educator.

### Leading-edge Development in Astronomy, since the Founding

The Physics Course graduate students learn advanced specialized knowledge on a micro and macro scale, from particles to space. Astronomy has a long tradition since our establishment, as Dr. Araki Toshima, the KSU founder, was an astrophysicist. In 2009, Koyama Astronomical Observatory, the largest telescope at a private university in Japan, was established. In graduate research, the Observatory is used for astronomical observation. In 2012, the Division’s research and development group succeeded in establishing “LIPS”, the astronomical observatory instrument with the highest quality in Japan.
