This seminar is for performing training necessary for conducting research. The research subject is decided in consultation with your academic supervisor. By carefully reading the textbook and articles, students will gain a strong understanding of mathematical content related to their research subject. Students are expected to present and explain what they learn in front of their classmates in the seminar. Students are also expected to discuss approaches to unsolved problems and gain a foothold for solving them. Students will learn how basic mathematical knowledge learned in lectures and exercises as well as theory acquired through seminar learning are applied to specific problems. Students are also expected to learn how to read and collect literature, and to examine a problem from various angles. Students will also organize the theory learned and new insights gained in the seminar into a master's thesis. Students should take "Graduate Research Seminars in Mathematics" simultaneously.
This seminar is a core part of the education system in research labs offered at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. By taking this seminar, students can learn about the research topic from the field they chose in a practical way. By deeply studying topics that are currently the subject of intense research, students are expected to find their own research topic and gain a foothold for solving them.
