Either of the courses Frontiers in Advanced Technology I and II (Department of Chemistry) is approved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society V". The format for the approvement is available at Graduate School Office.

(1) When a student has obtained credits for some of the classes listed in the coursework requirements prior to becoming a FMSP course student, they should apply for them to be counted after they become a FMSP student. If approved, these credits will be counted as part of their required coursework credits. The classes listed in the coursework requirements are Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Physics, Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society, and those indicated below for each department.

(2)

** (i) Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences**

The courses with numbers 700s in the winter semester of the academic year 2012 are approved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Physics". The courses with numbers 500s priovide background for research and are recommended to follow during the Master Course regardless of your research area. The course "Lectures on Mathematical Sciences and Society II" in the winter semester of the academic year 2012 is approved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society". The courses at the other departments of FMSP arroved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Physics" or "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society" are approved at Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences as well.

**(ii) School of Science**

＜Department of Physics＞

The courses at the other departments of FMSP arroved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Physics" or "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society" are approved at Department of Physics as well.

＜Department of Earth and Planetary Science＞

The courses with branch numbers 1000s and 2000s at Depatment of Earth and Planetary Scienc in the winter semester of the academic year 2012 are approved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Physics". There are no courses at School of Science approves as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society" in the winter semester of the academic year 2012. The courses at the other departments of FMSP arroved as "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Physics" or "Frontiers of Mathematical Sciences and Society" are approved at Department of Earth and Planetary Science.

## Required activities for the Doctoral years

To complete the FMSP course, students must take part in one of the two activities listed below:

- Research at institutions abroad for more than one month
- A corporate internship

Note that all of these activities require prior application. You may only participate once your plan has been reviewed and approved. Here the corporate internship includes research at a laboratory outside of your department.

It is require to participate in "Mathematical Research on Real World Problems" in the first and second Doctoral years. Details will be explained at the briefing session in July.

## Attending scientific meetings hosted or co-hosted by FMSP

Students are encouraged to attend scientific meetings hosted or co-hosted by FMSP, including seminars, schools and workshop held at Kavli IPMU. Some of the scientific meetings of particular significance in fostering young researchers will require the attendance of all FMSP course students.
