## Research Themes

Numerical Analysis，in particular, “good” numerical methods for solving differential equations.

There are many differential equations that have important physical properties such as conservation or dissipation.
A “good” numerical method for such a equation
refers to a numerical method that retain the conservation/dissipation properties in a discrete sense.
Such a method is called a structure-preserving numerical method.
Compared with a versatile numerical method,
the structure-preserving method not only provides a qualitatively correct result but also achieves numerical stability.
Currently, I’m engaged mainly in the study of high-order (highly accurate) methods for conservative/dissipative systems.
