Admission Policy (Master's Program in Computer Science)

Information Science is a fast progressing field of study. In order to cultivate future researchers who will lead the way, highly-specialized professionals, and educators of the next generation, we offer wide research and educational opportunities from basic principles to applied technology. We therefore welcome highly-motivated persons with basic academic skills in Information Science and Mathematical Science, and those with sophisticated English academic literacy.

Professors Main Lecture Course
Noriko Asamoto (Prof.)

Discrete Mathematics / Document Processing System (Formula Processing Special Course)
We take a computational approach in analyzing natural and social phenomena. For example, applied studies of understanding phenomenon of formula processing, and a supportive use of computing machine in a process of knowledge acquisition. Also a use of computing machine and network especially in a field of education, particular in remote education.
Takayuki Itoh(Prof.)

Information Visualization / Multimedia (Visual Computing Special Course / Media Computing Special Course)
We are involved in the visualization of information using computer graphics to contribute to our society. For example, visualization in the fields of electric power, medicine, medical care, life information, and security. We study how to use visualization to work on multimedia technology as graphics and audio data.
Masato Oguchi (Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Network Computing / Middleware (Computer Network Special Course)
We study advanced use of networks in data processing, providing information, supportive systems in user communication. Computer network, represented as internet, is requisite and considerable as a social infrastructure in all computer use. Thus, we must investigate the tremendous upgrade and continuing advance of technology.
Tetsuya Kawamura(Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Numeric Hydrodynamics Special Course / Numeric Simulation (Simulation Science Special Course)
In our laboratory, we analyze the issues of Science and Engineering by numeric simulations. In recent years, the long progress of computer has made numeric simulations an immerse possibility as the third way of study next to theories and experiments. In particular, we have interests in applying numeric simulations to Environmental Science and Life Science, since the environmental issues are more and more vital today.
Ichiro Kobayashi(Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Intellectual Information Processing (Linguistic Information Processing)
Our study is about the computer technology of intellectual processing and of understanding human language. Our aim is to communicate with robots so that future robots can work with us in our daily lives.
Itiro Siio(Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Human Interface (Human Computer System Special Course)
We make approaches and implementations of human interface and application in a field more accessible to us, such as home information appliances and ubiquitous computers for daily use. It is needless to say that small-scale and low-cost computer technology should be a device that is close to our daily lives.
Hiroaki Yoshida(Prof.)

Applied Analysis /Operator Algebra Theory (Information Analysis Special Course)
It might sound unfamiliar, but my specialty is Anti-commutative Probability Theory (something different to Probability Theory). For a masteral research, we study the methods and applications of statistical data analysis that extract genuinely valuable information from the static-ridden data.
Kenichi Asai(Associate Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Programming Language (Computational Language Special Course)
We study the fundamental theory of programming language, focusing on functional language. We try to ask ourselves how to start a program efficiently, how to make a program easily, and how to reduce the errors of a program. It is natural that these issues can be a simple combination when you deeply understand and seek into the essence of these things. We approach accurately the programming structure through mathematical studies.
Masatsu Kasukawa(Associate Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Computer Architecture (Computer Architecture Special Course)
Our focus is on input devises such as keyboard and mouse, and securities such as recognition and steganography. Our lab is surrounded by various kinds of measuring equipments and machine tools.
Kazue Kudo(Associate Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Numerical Computation / Statistical Mechanics (Numerical Method Special Course)
Macroscopic properties of a system are different from those of microscopic individuals. Statistical mechanics has been developed to study interesting macroscopic phenomena. We use numerical methods to study those phenomena.
Hiroshi Kori(Associate Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Dynamical Systems (Applied Analysis Special Course)
There is a variety of mysterious phenomena (dynamics) in the world, such as biological activity and whether change. To understand, predict and control dynamics, we need to deal with differential equations. In our group, we try to understand dynamical phenomena with differential equations. In particular, we are interested in rhythmic activities including biological clocks and locomotions.
Suguru Saitoh (Associate Prof.)

Daisuke Bekki (Associate Prof.)
Lab Home Page
Computational Linguistics / Theoretical Linguistics (Mathematical Science Special Course)
My study focuses on the principle of natural language (mainly on syntactic structure and implication), and constructing theory of mathematical logic both by observing language phenomena and generalization. It is unaccountable that no one can explain explicitly the system of natural language, although we all have obtained those skills in our daily lives. Thus, it is closely related to the philosophical question of how people view the world.

(Until 2011. Currently in
the Department of Mathematics)
Combination Theory / Cryptographic Theory (Discrete Mathematics Special Course)
I love to teach, and I specialize in combination theory. I am now studying algorism for the hope to serve as a useful purpose. Recently studying on issues of combination in information science such as cryptographic theory, configuration of pseudo random digits, and occurrence of symbols.
