**Current and Past Project**

- We originate a novel geometry of discrete surfaces having the surfaces with good properties, such as developable surfaces, as the shape elements, incorporate the theory of aesthetic shapes and construct the technique of structural analysis/optimization on it. Under this framework, we develop an innovative software platform that enables structural design with high efficiency and low cost, endowed with beauty and artisticity, and guaranteeing security and safety.Total budget: 246,700,000JPY
- Work on integrable discrete dynamical systems; discrete integrable systems to boundary value problems of practical interest in heat and mass flow; the ability to construct new solutions of the differential equations for scale-invariant curvature-driven evolving curves and scrolls
- This project aims to solve long-standing problems in discrete dynamical systems that are of particular interest to physics, by using reflection groups to reveal unexpected geometric insights. Mathematics has the power to abstract crucial patterns from complex observations. Symmetries familiar in the real world, like the hexagonal patterns of honeycombs, arise inside convoluted structures in high-dimensional systems. By revealing the structure of space-filling polytopes in integrable systems, the project seeks to find sought-after reductions of high-dimensional discrete models to two dimensions. Expected outputs include new reductions to discrete Painlevé equations, new circle patterns useful for computer graphics and discrete holomorphic functions.

We consider those curves under similarity geometry and characterize them as stationary integrable flow on plane curves which is governed by the Burgers equation. We propose a variational formulation of those curves whose Euler–Lagrange equation yields the stationary Burgers equation. Our result suggests that the log-aesthetic curves and their generalization can be regarded as the similarity geometric analogue of Euler's elasticae.. |

The theory is controlled by the geometry of certain rational surfaces called the spaces of initial values, which are characterized by eight point configuration on P1xP1. We give a systematic description of the equations and their various properties, such as affine Weyl group symmetries, hypergeometric solutions and Lax pairs under this framework, by using the language of Picard lattice and root systems. We also provide with a collection of basic data; equations, point configurations/root data, Weyl group representations, Lax pairs, and hypergeometric solutions of all possible cases.. |

Explicit formulas in terms of the τ function are presented. Transformation theory of the motions of both smooth and discrete curves is developed simultaneously.. |
