The Division of Advanced Sciences gives students a deeper understanding of the specialized disciplines of mathematics, physics, chemistry/biochemistry and computer science, and equips them with well-grounded scientific analysis and rational processing skills based on the basic sciences. Students in the doctoral program will work on a certification for researchers who will internationally excel.
This program offers advanced education and research relating to the development of mathematical theory in each field of pure mathematics—algebra, analysis and geometry. The program enables the development of interdisciplinary research skills grounded in a mathematical perspective, and is focused on cultivating professionals, teachers, researchers and others possessing advanced mathematical knowledge and operational skills.
This program covers fields ranging from theoretical particle physics, astrophysics, statistical mechanics and theoretical condensed matter physics to fields of applied science such as applied spectroscopy, extreme condition experiments, superconductivity and soft matter. It enables students to develop an intuitive and physical understanding of physics based on the integration of theoretical and practical perspectives. In addition to improving student research skills into physics, this program teaches reductionist and pluralistic perspectives, and strives to help students develop their problem-solving skills.
This program focuses on the many types of molecules including functional materials, supramolecules, medicines, and biomolecules, etc. Education and research are conducted from a wide range of perspectives, including materials science, synthetic chemistry, complex systems, computational chemistry, and life sciences.
By integrating research in various fields of computer sciences— from the basics to applied computer science—this program illustrates the theories and applications of computer sciences needed in today’s advanced information society. Research is conducted on techniques of mathematical science needed in computer science of the next generation, computer science techniques that form the basis of modern information science and its application, and the use and analysis methods of various information derived from natural and life phenomena and human life sciences.
