Mathematics is the foundation of the science and technology that supports modern society. By learning multifaceted mathematics in a systematic manner, students can acquire capabilites that allow them to flexibly adapt to various career options aftergraduation, such as continuing studies or finding employment. In addition, an important tradition of the Department of Mathematics is to foster juniorhigh or high school teachers who possess solid, specialized knowledge on mathematics.
Research Groups & Research Areas

Algebra
Algebra starts with solving equations. The nonexistence of general methods for solving equations of degree five or more is shown by an abstraction of the problem and the use of group theory, ring theory, field theory and the like, and theories of algebraic variety are developed from a set of all solutions of a system of equations.
Kida Research Group / Kunugi Research Group / Sanada Research Group

Geometry
Geometry starts with Klein geometry, which looks into the properties of shapes which are invariant in a certain transformation group. This was then merged with the theory of general relativity and developed into Riemannian geometry, Lorentzian geometry, and also symplectic geometry.
Koike Research Group / Yamakawa Research Group

Analysis
The beginnings of analysis can be found with Archimedes, but it was after the birth of calculus in the 17th century that this area fully developed. Today, calculus is used to solve various problems, and is applied in a wider field than normal functions.
Kato Research Group / Ohta Research Group / Tanaka Research Group / Yokota Research Group

Probability Theory / Statistics
Even if a phenomenon appears to be chaotic at first glance, some regularity may be found if it occurs for many times, and this can be used for surveys and forecasts. Further, for Brownian motion and the like, which are constantly subjected to a chaotic force, we can find regularities from equations.
Kaneko Research Group

Mathematics Education
We all studied mathematics at elementary, junior high, and high school. Considering historical transformations and the current status quo of content and teaching methods, as well as ways of evaluating the curriculum in mathematics, we try to envision the shape of mathematics education in the future.
