Materials Design through Computics: Complex Correlation and Non-equilibrium Dynamics - Scientific Research on Innovative Areas, a MEXT Grant-in-Aid Project FY2010-2014


About This Research AreaOutline

In this research area, we aim to establish a new academic discipline called “Computics”, which integrates computational materials science and computer science to change the existing approach of computational physics and forge a new paradigm of materials science. Using Computics, we will innovatively improve the research methodology based on the first principle of the quantum theory. In addition, through a close collaboration with experimentalists, we will elucidate and predict complex correlations and nonequilibrium dynamics, both of which are the foundation of materials design.

In pursuit of these efforts, we strive to create a paradigm shift that will evolve experience-based manufacturing into deductively-organized engineering. The computer architecture environment is undergoing significant changes towards massively parallel computing with a hierarchical multiplexing structure. Hence, our research focuses on overcoming difficulties in the existing methodology of computational science. Moreover, we strive to design new materials that support the foundation of nanotechnology.
