Laws of physics often have "Nonlinearity". Despite the simple forms of the laws themselves, the nonlinearity can cause a variety of complex phenomena. We study mathematics and physics of fluids and continuum, such as water, air, plasma, and their applications to engineering.

Research Highlights


We have published a paper in Pysics of Plamas, which is an achievement under collaboration among University of Texas at Austin, National Institute for Fusion Science and Tottori University. The second author was a graduate school student in our laboratory. Here is the URL.
A commentary "Simulated annealing of MHD equilibria including flows and magnetic islands" by M. Furukawa has been published in the Journal of Plasma and Fusion Research (in Japanese). Here is the URL.
We have renewed the web page of Nonlinear Dynamics / Continuum machanics Laboratory.
