A5 Katsuaki ASANO Institute for Cosmic Ray Research http://www.icrr.u-tokyo.ac.jp/hea/ asanok@icrr.u-tokyo.ac.jp I theoretically study high-energy astrophysical phenomena, such as relativistic jets from active galactic nuclei, gamma-ray bursts, pulsars, and merger of binary neutron stars. In this field, there remain many unsolved problems. I especially study the formation of relativistic outflows, particle acceleration in jets, emission mechanisms of electromagnetic waves or neutrinos from high-energy particles. Our research supports the multi-messenger astronomy, which probes astronomical phenomena through collaborating observations of electromagnetic waves, cosmic rays, neutrinos, and gravitational waves.
A5 Kipp CANNON Research Center for the Early Universe kipp@resceu.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp Detection and interpretation of gravitational waves from the collisions of compact objects including black holes and neutron stars, as well from other phenomena.
A5 Fujihiro HAMBA Institute of Industrial Science http://www.iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~hamba hamba@iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp Fluid physics: physics and modeling of inhomogeneous turbulence. The effect of turbulence on the mean field can be modeled in terms of transport coefficients such as the eddy viscosity. We derive turbulence models by using statistical theory for turbulence; we investigate the mechanism of turbulence and assess models by performing numerical simulations. The present research topics are hybrid turbulence model, analysis of nonlocal eddy viscosity and diffusivity in turbulence, analysis and modeling of rotating and swirling turbulent flows, and modeling the dynamo mechanism in magnetohydrodynamic turbulence with its application to astronomical magnetic fields.
A5 Kenta HOTOKEZAKA Research Center for the Early Universe kentah@resceu.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp I'm interested in relativistic astrophysics including black holes, neutron stars, gravitational waves and electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational-wave events. I use several different approaches, e.g., numerical simulations and phenomenological modelings.
A5 * Kenichi ISHIKAWA School of Engineering http://www.atto.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/en/ ishiken@n.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp We theoretically study how atoms and molecules behave in an intense ultrashort laser field, using ab-initio simulations (first-principles simulations, first-principle simulations) based on quantum mechanics. Our particular interests include: - non-perturbative nonlinear processes such as high-harmonic generation and tunneling ionization - attosecond multielectron dynamics in atoms and molecules

A5 Masahiro TAKADA Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe http://db.ipmu.jp/member/personal/698en.html masahiro.takada@ipmu.jp Kavli IPMU is one of the leading institutions of the unprecedented massive galaxy survey carried with the 8.2m Subaru Telescope (http://www.ipmu.jp). My main research interest is exploring “experimental” high-precision cosmology with the Subaru data: 1) Exploring the nature of dark matter and dark energy with high-precision measurement of weak gravitational lensing due to cosmic structures 2) Constraining the mass scale of neutrinos from measurements of galaxy clustering statistics 3) To test theory of gravity at cosmological distance scales as well as test theory of cosmic structure formation

A5 Naoki YOSHIDA Department of Physics http://member.ipmu.jp/naoki.yoshida/ naoki.yoshida@phys.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp Theoretical astrophysics and observational cosmology. Recent research highlight includes structure formation in the early universe, the nature of dark matter and dark energy. Our research group members work on a broad range of topics from the formation of the first stars and blackholes to the distribution of dark matter in and around galaxies. We use data from galaxy redshift surveys and weak lensing observations to study the large-scale strucutre of the universe. Massive parallel computing such as gravitational N-body simulations and radiation-hydrodynamics is also of our primary interest. We also work with mathematicians and data scientists to develop a Big Data application to analyze literally big data from large telescopes.
