Brief description of the research, teaching and direct contribution to the society:

Research:The field of research is dynamical-systemic approach with topological
methods to problems in applied analysis. This topological and
geometric point of view sheds new light on subjects which usually
studied by analytical methods.

Teaching:There are two kinds of courses in terms of the objectives.
Classes in the first category are tought at the faculty of
mathematics in the department of science, and the graduate school
of mathematics. Their aim is to provide discipline for experts of
mathematics. Those in the second one are tought in the department of
engineering in order to offer basic mathematical knowledge and
advanced tools for applications in technology.

Direct contribution to the society:A lecture in the community courses of the
faculty of mathematics in Kyushu University in 2003.

1. Shunsaku Nii, Genericity of interactions with potentials being Morse functions, Journal of Geometry and Physics, 10.1016/j.geomphys.2018.03.013, 129, 233-237, 2018.07, Potential functions defined on a d-dimensional lattice by nearest neighbor coupling are considered. The question is whether the potential functions are Morse functions. It is shown that for generic nearest neighbor couplings the potential functions are Morse functions for any system size..

Educational Activities
Commitments to education:

My teaching duty consists of four kinds of courses:

1.Lectures and exercise courses for freshmen in the faculty of mathematics:
Teaching foundation of mathematical way of thinking, and attitude and the
methods of study to the students who will study mathematics as an academic.

2.Lectures for seniors and graduate students in the faculty of mathematics:
Introducing advanced topics from specific areas in order to provide
good perspectives of the academic to students who finished standard course
of mathematics.

3.Lectures and exercise courses for freshmen and sophomores in the department
of engineering e.t.c.:
Teaching basic knowledge of mathematics such as calculus and liner algebra
to students who will use mathematics as a tool.

4.Lectures for juniors and seniors in the department of engineering:
Providing mathematical tools used in engineering e.t.c. such as differential
equations, Fourier analysis and so on to students who need theses tools.
