We research the application of statistical mechanics. We are interested in various subjects, for example the folding of proteins, the evolution of virus, the glass and jamming transitions in soft and hard condensed matter systems, the formation of traffic jams, the formation of dunes, the restoration of images, integer constraint problems, and so on. We also research the basis of statistical mechanical techniques such as extended ensemble methods. Please visit our lab once and talk with the stuffs if you want to research something but you don’t know where you can research it. We welcome the visitors who are interested in our research, so please contact us by e-mails.
