Note: Information on the laboratories is current as of the 2020 academic year. There may be changes to this information in the 2021 academic year.

#### ODA Fumihito

- Position
- Professor
- Laboratory
- Group Theory Laboratory

##### Representation Theory of Finite Groups

Examination is carried out into finite groups and their representation using a category theory approach. Research is conducted into group actions on simplicial complexes, semi-ordered sets, and modules.

#### ASAI Tsunenobu

- Position
- Associate Professor
- Laboratory
- Combinatorics Laboratory

##### Finite Group Theory

Research is conducted into finite groups and combinatorial structures constructed from groups.

#### CHINEN Koji

- Position
- Associate Professor
- Laboratory
- Applicable Algebra Laboratory

##### Analytic Number Theory, Coding Theory

Coding theory is about ways to properly relay information. It is a comprehensive theory that is the result of numerous mathematical developments. Research is conducted with a focus on algebra, including coding theory as a mathematical theory and related group theory, and ring theory. Research is also conducted into analytic number theory as it relates to ciphers.
