1 Introduction to IMI activity etc. : Toward the Asia Pacific Consortium of Mathematics for Industry Masato Wakayama Institute of Mathematics for Industry, Kyushu University March 31, 2014 (CSIRO, ANU Canberra)

2 Institute of Mathematics for Industry (1 st of its kind in Japan) Ito Campus Kyushu University Location of IMI 2 6 Special zone in Japan Tokyo, Kansai (including Osaka, Kyoto), Fukuoka, Okinawa, Niigata

3 -Historical Background in Japan- Manyo Period (Nobles Era) Use of mathematical puns by the oldest Japanese poets (the Manyo-shuu anthology) 7-8 Centries 1603 →→→ 1868 Edo Period (Samurai Era) ・ close the country ・ peaceful (no-buttle) period Takakazu SEKI (1642-1708) ・ 1674 Discovery of ・ determinant (←resultant) < (Leibniz 1683) ・ Bernoulli number 〜 Jacobi Bernoulli almost the same time Discovery of ・ Derivative & Integral 〜 Newton, Leibniz (BUT, No discovery of Fundamental theorem of Calculus) ・ Mathematics votive tablets (San-gaku) featuring mathematical puzzles mainly Euclidean Geometry ・ Abacus (very popular) three five nights (= 十五夜 =15 nights) =full moon

4 →→1868 →→→ 1912 Meiji Period (Open the country) 1926 →→ 1989 →→→ Showa Period (2 nd World War 1939-1945) 1989 →→→ Heisei Period Social system, law etc.. ← Britain imported Science, Technology ← Germany imported Culture, Arts ← France imported Mathematics: Gottingen →→→ Pure Math. Technical Univ. s →→→ Applied Math. hard Applied Math. (but rather implicitly) Newly established University Engineering School at, e.g. Mechanical eng., Electronic eng., Precision machinery eng. →Japan’s period of advanced growth The source of development of High-Tech. in Japan ∵ Before getting High Performance Computer 〜 1990’s middle ∃ Many Strong Applied Mathematicians (But, was not regarded as a mathematician) After that ♯ {such strong applied mathematicians} decreases -Historical Background in Japan-

5 Policy Study No.12 in 2006 by the NISTEP of MEXT NISTEP NISTEP: National Institute of Science and Technology Policy “Japanese Mathematics is not so strong as we had believed/expected” ⇒ The report gave the mathematics community in Japan which has been strongly oriented by pure mathematics a “Shock”! Reason: Weakness/thinness of Applied Mathematics/Mathematicians The report said: From “Mathematics – Science now in Oblivion ” 1

6 Policy Study No.12 in 2006 by the NISTEP of MEXT NISTEP NISTEP : National Institute of Science and Technology Policy It is desirable to have the same percentage of workers in the private sector of research and development as the West, which is 65%. However, in Japan the percentage in the private sector is only 26%. This shortage and nearly 40% gap relative to the West must be overcome. (Need Supporting Fund. From Government, also) High demand for workers in basic research Report 2007 *Instit. for Math. Its Appl., Univ. of Minnesota (USA, 1982 - ) *Oxford Centre for Indust. Appl. Math. (OCIAM), (UK, 19889 - ), OCCAM (2008-) *Fraunhofer Instit. for Tech. and Indust. Math. (Germany, 2000- ) *European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI, 1986 - ), *OECD/Global Science Forum “Reports on Mathematics in Industry” (2008,2009), *MATHEON (Germany), *MITACS (→ MPRIM, Canada), ……………. World’s trend towards mathematics for industrial technologies From “Mathematics – Science now in Oblivion ” 2

7 “ Investigation and estimation of promotion of cooperation of mathematics and mathematical science with other fields ― Toward a proposal for the 4th governmental science & technology master plan ” Implementing Organization: Kyushu University (Main), University of Tokyo, Mathematical Society of Japan, Nippon Steel Company. Representative: Masato Wakayama (Kyushu University) We investigate and estimate the activities of mathematics and mathematical science, and those of their cooperation with the other fields that have been implemented in Japan, and thereby gain ideas for making a proposal to the Japanese government for promoting mathematics and for strengthening cooperation with various fields surrounding mathematics. October 2009-March 2010 Investigation Project commissioned by MEXT 2009

8 1. “The 4th governmental science & technology master plan” of the Prime Minister’s Council of Science and Technology Policy (CSTP), has specifically mentioned that “Mathematical Sciences” is important and should be promoted (the first time). 2011 2. Mathematics Innovation Unit in MEXT was established (2011) 3. The committee of Innovation by -and for- Mathematics has been established under the Committee for Science and Technology in the government (2011) 4. 2011 (2012) : MEXT-joint organizations for 22 (36) workshop in Mathematics (Math. Science & Math-for-Industry) + Another Funds, 2012, 2013 5. Coop with Math Program

10 What is Math-for-Industry Finance IT Manufacturing Energy Environmental Pharmaceutical Medical R&D

11 Organization ◆ Division of Advanced Mathematics Technology Dedicated to promoting collaborative research with industry and other scientific disciplines with the aim to develop advanced technologies leveraged by mathematics and statistics. ◆ Division of Applied Mathematics Comprised of pure and applied mathematicians pursuing theoretical research works for applications in industry as well as in other scientific disciplines. ◆ Division of Fundamental Mathematics Consisting of pure mathematicians challenging to pioneer new mathematical tools so as to deal with those problems well-defined per se but yet to be solved. ◆ Laboratory of Advanced Software in Mathematics (LASM) Staffed with experts in various areas of mathematics and statistics to implement advanced theories built in IMI in the form of open-source software. February 2012- ◆ Australia Branch September 2014- ◆ Fujitsu Joint Research Section September 2014-

29 Benefits Complementary Research Area & Industrial situation “Mathematics” is not easy to recognized by nations; International collaboration makes Mathematics more visible Not so big time difference, in principle Pure mathematics can be involved easily in this area Students exchange can became easy: (From Japan) English speaking country (Outside of Japan) Japan has many high-tech companies which can accept students in English
