The scope of activities of the Center for Mathematical Sciences spans all aspects of research and education in the fields of mathematical sciences. Our current researches in the field of mathematics are devoted to various subjects and problems Centers arising in both pure and applied mathematics: nonassociative algebras, neural networks, unimodality problems, algebraic combinatorics, spherical functions, and homotopy theory.
In the fields of physics, theoretical research is performed in manybody theories, nuclear physics, quantum gravity and quantum mechanics of constrain system. There has been also a project to develop educational textbooks and software for mechanics, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics. The research areas assigned to each coresearcher are as follows:
Prof. H. Sagawa  studies the physics of the manybody system of including nuclei and microclusters and quantum information theory. 
Prof. N. Kamiya  studies the theory of nonassociative algebras and a structure theory of algebras from triple systems 
Prof. K. Funahashi  researches the theory of the neural networks and function theory of several complex variables from a geometrical viewpoint

A new effective interaction is presented for pfshellmodel calculations. Starting from a realistic Gmatrix interaction based on the BonnCpotential, twobody matrix elements and single particle energies are determined by fitting to 635 binding and excitation energy data in the mass range 47 to 69. The derived interaction is found to be quite successful in describing the systematics of binding and excitation energies, effective single particle energies, isospin structure of the lowest states, including those of N =Z oddodd nuclei and N or Z=28 nuclei.

An effective interaction is derived for use in the full pf basis. Starting from a realistic Gmatrix interaction, 195 twobody matrix elements and 4 singleparticle energies are determined by fitting to 699 energy data in the mass range 47 to 66. The derived interaction successfully describes various structures of pfshell nuclei. As examples, systematics of the energies of the first 2+ states in the Ca, Ti, Cr, Fe, and Ni isotope chains and energy levels of Ni(56, 57, 58) are presented. The appearance of a new magic number 34 is seen.

We present a mean field study of the quadrupoleoctupole degree of freedom in collective nuclei within the framework of the spdfboson model. For realistic choices of the Hamiltonian parameters, the ground state of the system is shown to remain axially symmetric, which considerably simplifies the mean field treatment. The critical point for the onset of octupole deformation in quadrupole deformed systems is identified in the parameter space and importance of the parity projection in this process is emphasized. A systematic survey of excitation energies and electric transitions for onephonon states is given, which will provide useful guidance for detailed studies of negative parity states within the spdfboson model.

[sagawa01:2002]  H. Sagawa. Neutron Skin and Isospin Structure of Giant Resonances. Phys. Rev., C65:064314 pp.17, 2002. Neutron number dependence of neutron skin thickness in several isotopes is discussed by using Skyrme HartreeFock (HF) calculations. It is shown that the size of neutron skin is proportional to onethird power of the neutron number in all the isotopes studied although the central density varies substantially in each isotope. Isospin structure of giant quadrupole resonances (GQR) is also studied in selfconsistent HF and random phase approximation (RPA). The isovector GQR is found to be a good isospin mode even in very neutronrich nuclei, while the isoscalar GQR shows a large deviation from the pure isospin mode in neutronrich C and Oisotopes due to a strong neutron skin effect.

[sagawa03:2002]  I. Hamamoto and H. Sagawa. NewAspects of Nuclear Structure near Drip Lines. Nuclear Physics News International, 12:2129, 2002. Recent development of the facilities of radioactive nuclear ion beams (RNB) opens a new era of exploring the structure and reaction mechanism of nuclei far away from the stability line. The proton drip line is experimentally approached up till Pb isotopes, while the neutron drip line is known at this moment for Z8. The latter for Z28 may be reached in the present decade using currently planned RNB facilities. The fundamental properties unique in drip line nuclei compared with stable nuclei may be summarized as : (a) presence of nucleons with very small binding energies and the largely exten ded wavefunctions ; (b) large difference between the Fermi levels of protons and neutrons ; (c) exotic ratio of the proton to neutron numbers for a given mass number.

Isoscalardipole (compression)mode is studied first using schematic harmonicoscillator model and, then, the selfconsistent HartreeFock(HF) and random phase approximation(RPA) solved in coordinate space. Taking and the SkM* interaction as a numerical example, the spurious component and the strength in the continuum are carefully examined using the su m rules. It is pointed out that in the continuum calculation one has to use an extremely fine radial mesh in HF and RPA in order to separate, with good accuracy, the spurious component from intrinsic excitations.
