Collaborative Research Center for Innovative Mathematical Modelling

Established in March 2010 within the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo, the Collaborative Research Center for Innovative Mathematical Modelling promotes research for the Project for the Mathematical Theory for Modelling Complex Systems and Its Transdisciplinary Applications in Science and Technology, which is supported by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) through the Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (First Program), initiated by the Council for Science and Technology Policy (CSTP).

The purpose of our research project is to develop a mathematical theory that will facilitate the modelling of complex systems and the creation of transdisciplinary applications of this theory in science and technology based on mathematical engineering and chaos engineering, two fields that are aimed at applying mathematical theories to find solutions to a wide range of important problems. To this end, we are developing a mathematical theory for modelling complex systems by using the advanced control theory of complex systems, the theory of complex networks, and the theory of nonlinear time series analysis. By applying these theories to practical problems, we aim to provide solutions to urgent issues that have important societal implications, such as the development of new cancer treatments, the prevention of new types of pandemic influenza, and the development of nonlinear electronic circuit technology.

We plan to make the Collaborative Research Center a vibrant organization that will play a pivotal role in the global development of mathematical engineering in collaboration with other institutions, including the universities with which our sub-project members are affiliated.
