更新日／Last updated on 2021/01/20 (ICTG class starts in Q3.And Prof. Asai and Prof. Cong-Thang Truong is in charge of the class.)In the basic course, there are two subjects in mathematics: one is linear algebra and the other is differential and integral calculus. In this class, the basic part of linear algebra will be taught. Students are required to study this class with differential and integral calculus, because these subjects are closely connected each other.Linear algebra is a field of mathematics that is based on both addition and scalar multiple, and vectors in high school mathematics are its basic parts. The main theme of linear algebra is eigenvalue problem that arose from the theory of simultaneous linear differential equations, while its historical origin is in solving simultaneous linear equations. The purpose of this class is to learn necessary notions and techniques to consider eigenvalue problem.Exercises will be also given side by side with the lectures. Students are expected to participate subjectively and positively.Linear algebra has many applications to computer science and engineering. For example, it is impossible to understand mechanisms of computer graphics without linear algebra. Further, some fields of mathematics arose from engineering and physics, and developed under the influences of them. These are the essential reasons why mathematics is required to learn. The purpose of this class is to learn necessary notions and techniques to consider eigenvalue problem, and the following contents will be dealt with.vectors in plane, vectors in space, matrices of (2,2)-type, matrices of (3,3)-type, general definition of matrix, elementary transformations, simultaneous linear equations, inverse matrices, determinants, linear spaces, dimension and basis, subspaces, linear mappingsAttainment targetsStudents will be able to understand rank and solve simultaneous linear equations.Students will be able to understand base and dimension of linear space and deal with linear subspaces. 1 Introduction to matrices (1)2 Introduction to matrices (2)3 Matrices and linear transformations (1)4 Matrices and linear transformations (2)5 Definition of matrix and operations - general theory6 Square matrices, regular matrices and linear mappings7 Elementary transformations and rank8 Simultaneous linear equations 9 Definition of determinant10 Properties of determinant11 Expansions of determinant12 Definition and properties of linear space13 Basis and dimension 14 Linear subspaces, linear mappings Masahiko Saito Introduction to linear algebra (in Japanese) University of Tokyo PressYoshihiro Mizuta Linear algebra (in Japanese) Saiensu-sha Asai's classFinal Exam. 100%.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/01/20 (ICTG class starts in Q1.And Prof. Schmitt is in charge of the class.)Linear algebra II is a continuation of linear algebra I and deals with eigenvalue problem. Students are required to study this class with differential and integral calculus because of the same reason that is described in the syllabus of linear algebra I. For example, matrices and determinants play important roles in differential and integral calculus of several variables. And eigenvalue problem gives a strong way to solve recurrence formulae of sequences. Students must know importance of understanding organic connection between linear algebra and differential and integral calculus. They will also learn bases of vector analysis that is necessary to learn electromagnetism. Besides, the fundamental policy does not change from the case of linear algebra I.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/02/03 (ICTG class starts in Q4.And Prof. Li, P. is in charge of the class.)Calculus I is devoted to the former half of (differential and integral) calculus. Calculus and linear algebra are essential in the study of mathematical sciences. Since even the vector calculus is needed in the course of physics, the student should get familiar with calculus and linear algebra and understand the relation between them as soon as possible.Differential and integral calculus started from an understanding of basic objects such as areas of figures and tangent lines to curves, and was based on the Newton's mechanical investigations. Of course, the basic notions in calculus are constructed using that of a limit.Calculus I deals with calculus of one variable. The basic calculatioal techniques are reviwed and new notions and results are introduced; the rigorous treatment (epsilon definition) of a limit is also (partly) introduced.Exercises are also offered. Establishing the foundation of the basic calculational techniques studied in high school, we introduce advanced notions and results such as inverse trigonometric functions, expansion of a function, and recurrence relation of integrals.Calculus I is foundation for an understanding of Calculus II, Probability and Statistics, Fourier analysis, Complex function theory, Physics, and all fields of computer sciences. 1. Set of real numbers2. Limit of a sequence3. Limit of a function and continuous functions4. Derivative, exponential function, and logarithmic function5.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/02/04 The origin of Fourier analysis is a study of the heat equation (differential equation) by Fourier in early 19th century.  The basic idea was “express arbitrary functions by using trigonometric functions well!”  This way of thinking led to many useful results in many application fields, but it was uncertain whether the conclusions were mathematically justified, since the concept of convergence had not been discovered.  In the present day, a proper theory has been developed for conventional sciences and technologies.  Fourier analysis is an indispensable basic theory for not only processing differential equations of Fourier’s era, but also modern applications, e.g., signal processing (including for image information and sound information, etc.)  The technique for handling the given function by using trigonometric functions and exponential functions is given though we will not examine of mathematical proofs in this lecture.  Through the answers to the exercises, students will become familiar with calculations and skilled at using basic theorems of Fourier analysis. Part1. Fourier series expansionStudents will understand the orthonormal system of the space of the functions defined over finite intervals and Bessel's inequality.    Students will understand the Fourier series of trigonometric functions and will calculate them for the functions expressed by polynomials, exponential functions or trigonometric functions.Part2. Properties of Fourier seriesStudents will understand conditions of convergence of Fourier series, the relationship between a given function and the Fourier series derived from it.  They will understand Parseval’s theorem and apply it. They will also understand Weierstrass' theorem.  Part3. Fourier integralStudents will understand that the Fourier integral is obtained through a heuristic method that extends finite intervals to infinite ones and calculates Fourier transforms and Fourier integrals (Fourier inverse transforms) of given functions.  Target functions are not only elementary functions described above, but also the functions of the type \$e^{-x^2})\$.  They will also understand a convolution of the functions, the relationship between the convolutions and the Fourier transforms of the functions and calculate themPart4. Laplace transformStudents will understand the Laplace transform as a transform based on Fourier transform and apply it to solving a certain kind of ordinary differential equations.  The method by which the solution is expressed by a convolution of the Laplace transform is included.  Part5. Discrete Fourier transformThrough the heuristic consideration of the stepping functions by applying the theory of Fourier series, students will understand the theory of discrete Fourier transform (DFT) similar to the theory introduced in Part 2.  They will also understand the method of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) as an efficient algorithm of DFT and appreciate its speed. 1: Part1. Fourier series expansion (Orthogonal system of the function space) 2: Part1. Fourier series expansion (Fourier series of trigonometric functions) 3: Part1.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/01/14 Although complex functions, in the wider sense, are mappings from complex numbers to themselves, i.e. complex-valued functions of a complex variable, the main objects of Complex Analysis are functions satisfying analyticity. The analyticity is a property of local representability of a function as convergent power series, which is equivalent to the condition that a function is holomorphic (differentiable with respect to a complex variable) in the corresponding domain.In this course, we introduce complex functions, and learn holomorphy of functions and the Cauchy--Riemann equations. Next we define complex integration along a curve on the complex plane, and learn Cauchy's integral theorem/formula, etc. In virtue of this result, we have the Taylor series expansion and the Laurent series expansion of functions. The former is power series expansion of functions, which is the most fundamental result in Complex Analysis. The latter is applied to the study of singularities and the residue theorem. In addition, we derive many techniques useful for direct applications such as the maximum modulus principle, calculation of solutions to differential equations using the method of power series, and determination of the number of zeros of functions by Rouche's theorem.When we study Complex Analysis, we are impressed that all of the needed theorems are derived very naturally one after another. Hence it is said that this theory has a beautiful system of mathematics. In particular, the most amazing fact is that every analytic function is completely determined by the behavior in a very small domain. This is similar to the fact that every life can be completely regenerated from a cell.Analyticity is a property that our familiar many real functions have -- polynomials, rational functions, exponent functions, logarithm functions, trigonometric functions, and all combinations of them have analyticity. Therefore, Complex Analysis is easy to apply to many areas. The knowledge of Complex Analysis is very important for various application areas such as electromagnetism, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, computer system theory, signal processing, etc. Objectives: Students understand what is a "holomorphic function", and can apply Cauchy's integral theorem/formula to several problems. They learn analytic functions are expanded by Taylor/Laurent series. Also, they use residue theorem to some integral calculation.Attainment goals: holomorphic functions, Cauchy--Riemann equations, complex integrals, Cauchy's integral theorem, Cauchy's integral formula, Taylor series, Laurent series, singularities, residue theorem. 1. complex plane, point at infinity2. holomorphic functions, Cauchy-Riemann equations3. harmonic functions4. exponent functions, trigonometric functions, logarithm functions, roots, complex powers of complex numbers5. complex integrals6. Cauchy's integral theorem, integrals of holomorphic functions7. Cauchy's integral formula, Liouville's theorem, maximum modulus principle8. complex sequence and series9. sequence and series of functions, uniform convergence10. power series and its convergence domain11. Taylor series expansion12. Laurent series expansion, zero points, singularities13. residue theorem14. application to several (real) definite integrals(Details depend on each class.)

更新日／Last updated on 2021/01/21 Probability and Statistics is the most useful area in mathematics. We present an introduction to Probability and Statistics for 2nd year students. As a study of random variation and statistical inference, Probability and Statistics are important in computer science and other wide areas of Mathematical sciences. The words of error, mean, variance, correlation, estimation are used most often. But, their definitions are not well known andbadly understood. In this course, we explicitly explain these words and concepts of Probability and Statistics. They are useful knowledge for students. Moreover, statistical analysis is the basis on solve statistic problems in research and business. 1. basis of statistics2. 1-dim data3. 2-dim data4. probability5. random variable6. probability distribution7. multi-dimensional probability distribution8.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/02/02 In this course students study properties of sets which have algebraic operations on two elements. According to the condition of operations, the set is called as group, ring and field. Treating abstract algebraic operations derives general properties for these algebraic objects. As fundamentals in computer science students have already studied ``Algorithms and Data Structures''and ``Discrete Systems''. In these courses abstract algorithms, data structures and discrete systems have been introduced and these abstract thinking can be applied to solve many practical problems. These esprits of algebraic systems are the same, and one of basis of the powerful tools to describe, think and solve many practical problems. Using abstract algebraic discussions, coding theory, public key encryption, random number generation and other interesting applications will be introduced. In this lectures proofs of the theorems will be explained simply and the meaning of the theorems and their applications will be enhanced. Furthermore, abstract thinking and deductive thinking will be taught. In order to make students understand the paper exercises and programming exercises will be given. Also quizzes and homework will be carried out to confirm students understanding.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/08/27 This course consists of logic, deduction of logic, and formalization of mathematical objects by logic.  This course has four parts:(i) Review: We first review basic set theory and its related topics such as binary relations and functions.  We then review Boolean logic.They are to bring students with different prerequisites to the same level.(ii) Basic logics: We introduce two different level logics: Propositional Logic and First-Order Logic.Propositional logic is a classical logic with fundamental operations.First-order logic is the fundamental tool to describe many mathematically theoretical materials.(iii) Resolution Principle: Resolution Principle is a deduction method of the first-order logic.We also study Skolem standard forms, Herbrand universe, and Herbrand's theorem.(iv) Logical Formalization of Natural Number Theory: We formalize the natural number theory under Peano axioms by using first-order logic. Logic is considered the language of mathematics.This leads that, in computer science and engineering, logic is the foundation and animportant tool.In this course, we study mathematical logic and also symbolic logic.The first objective is to understand both propositional logic and first-order logic.The second objective is to understand Resolution Principle of propositional logic and first-order logic. This is mechanical reasoning.The third objective is to formalize a mathematical object by the first-order logic.To do so, we, in this course, employ the Natural number theory with Peano axioms. Each class has a lecture and may have exercises and homework.1-2 Review (Set Theory and its related topics, Boolean Logic)3-6 Basic Logics (Propositional Logic, First-Order Logic)7-10 Resolution Principle(Skolem Standard Forms, Herbrand Universe, Herbrand's Theorem, Resolution Principle)11-14 Logical Formalization of Natural Number Theory under Peano Axioms Class materials will be distributed. 40% Final Examination30% Midterm Examination30% Exercises/Homeworks Japanese References:福山克 「数理論理学」（培風館）前原昭二 「記号論理入門」（日本評論社）山田 俊行「はじめての数理論理学」(森北出版)English References:H.

更新日／Last updated on 2021/08/06 The contents of this course include the fundamental concepts on topology, which serves as the foundation of modern mathematics, and its applications. In topology, also known as "geometry for soft materials," two shapes can be considered as the same if we can transform one to the other smoothly while maintaining the underlying connectivity within the shapes. This idea leads to a new approach to characterizing the global features of shapes and has promoted the development of computer science and engineering so far. Specifically, its contribution ranges from the fundamental representations of graphs and surfaces to the state-of-the-art techniques for extracting features in data analysis. This course will facilitate to study various important concepts for classifying shapes from a topological viewpoint, by employing specific one and two-dimensional shapes as examples. The objectives of this course are to study several topological invariants or characteristics that describe the global structures of geometric objects, such as the Euler characteristic and the Betti number, together with the topological classification of closed surfaces using their opened ones along boundaries. This will be followed by understanding the relationship between the geometric objects (e.g., the topological space) and algebraic objects (e.g., the Homology group), which allows us to classify the geometric objects by calculating the associated Homology groups. 01) Guidance02) 1-dimensional topology: Seven Bridges of Königsberg and Eulerian paths03) 1-dimensional topology: Connectivity and Euler-Poincare theorem04) 1-dimensional topology: Embedding into Euclidean space05) 2-dimensional topology: Closed surfaces06) 2-dimensional topology: Development of Closed Surfaces07) 2-dimensional topology: Classification of closed surfaces08) 2-dimensional topology: Connectivity and Euler-Poincare theorem09) n-dimensional topology: Complexes and polyhedra10) Homology: Groups and homomorphism11) Homology: Chain complexes12) Homology: Homology groups13) Homology: 0-dimensional and 1-dimensional homology groups14) Homology: Connectivity and Euler-Poincare theorem 瀬山士郎著「トポロジー：柔らかい幾何学」 増補版 日本評論社"Topology: Yawarakai Kikagaku" by Shiro SeyamaNippon-Hyouron Publisher(The text book is written in Japanese)(ISBN 978-4-535-78405-5)The course basically follows the contents of the textbook above while you can find almost the same contents in the following book in English:A Combinatorial Introduction to Topology" by Michael Henle Dover Books on Mathematics(ISBN 978-0-486-67966-2) Term-end exam (50%) + quizzes in class and reports on assignments (homework) (50%)Assignment submission is due before the next class/session starts.Those who take the term-end exam are only eligible for credit.You are requested to attend more than 2/3 of sessions (i.e, 10 out of 14 sessions) and submit all the reports on assignments to take the term-end exam.Cheating (include proxy submission of quizzes reports) will be strictly penalized.(Make-up exam will be provided according to the guidelines of absence prepared by the Student Affairs Section.)
