Research and education in this Department deal with modeling, analysis, and control of complicated and large-scaled systems, not necessarily confined to artificial ones, and optimization of their performances together with basic methodologies such as discrete and applied mathematics, dynamical system theory, and statistical physics. The aim of the Department is to bring up scientists or engineers who can cope with various problems encountered in highly organized and informatized modern societies, based on flexible conception, sharp insight, and high competence for searching solutions, resulting from profound attainments in mathematics and mathematical physics and from a general background in computer sciences.



The Department has 3 divisions, each with 2 or 3 sub-divisions, and consists of 8 chairs. 21 graduate students are accepted into the Master's Program annually and 7 into the Doctoral program.
