Spring has come!

This is the last issue of iTHES Newsletter in the fiscal year 2013. I would like to thank all the people who contributed to the articles and who read these articles. Also, I am very grateful to Dr. Tsukasa Tada for making tremendous efforts to keep the weekly Newsletters attractive.

Now, spring has come and a new fiscal year 2014 starts from tomorrow. I am sure that iTHES activities will grow further and will be reported/shared in coming iTHES Newsletters.

Let's have fun!

Upcoming Events

  • iTHES Colloquium
    Speaker: Prof. Gordon Baym (University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign)
    Date: 14:30-, April 8, 2014
    Place: 2F Large Meeting Room, RIBF Building, RIKEN

  • Event report

    On March, 14 and 28, Prof. Bernold Fiedler (Free University of Berlin) gave two talks. First talk was entitled “Reaction, diffusion, and advection in one space dimension – an introduction”. In the talk, he gave a combinatorial characterization of the heteroclinic orbits between equilibria for ODEs and PDEs from geometric viewpoint. Enthusiastic discussions between participants and Bernold had continued hours after his talk. His second talk was entitled “Reaction and diffusion in several space dimensions – an invitation”. In the talk, he gave a mathematical basis for various complex behaviors of reaction-diffusion systems (2D and 3D) such as spiral wave annihilation, crossover collision of scroll wave filaments, and so on. For both talks, he clearly explained his theory by using white boards and we thank him very much.

    Person of the Week

    Taku Izubuchi
    Hi, I am Taku Izubuchi from RIKEN-BNL Research Center (RBRC), a high energy nuclear/particle research center at Brookhaven National Laboratory, NY USA. RBRC consists of three labs, Theory Group, Experiment Group, and Computing group. I am a founding group leader of the Computing Group since 2011, where I and my colleagues are conducting various interesting lattice QCD simulation. I am always excited by challenging calculations. Through iThes, I like to exchange ideas to solve difficult problems I have, and I also wants to learn interesting problems you need to solve.
