RIMS History


April 1958 The 26th General Assembly Meeting of the Science Council of Japan (SCJ) approved the founding of RIMS.
April 1963 RIMS was founded as a joint usage research institute attached to Kyoto University for the purpose of conducting general research in mathematical science. In the initial year, two research divisions (Fundamental Mathematics Research Division One and Operator Theory Research Division)were established.
April 1964 Two research divisions (Fundamental Mathematics Research Division Two and Applied Analysis Research Division One) were established.
April 1965 Two research divisions (Non-Linear Problem Research Division and Applied Analysis Research Division Two) were established.
April 1966 Two research divisions (Approximation Theory Research Division and Numerical Analysis Division) were established.
April 1967 One research division (Computer Research Division) was established. A total of nine research divisions were completed.
April 1971 The Applied Mathematical Programming Institute attached to RIMS was established.
April 1975 The Division of Mathematical Sciences was established in the Kyoto University Graduate School of Science.
April 1978 The Global Analysis Research Division was established.
April 1980 The Mathematical Science Research Division (with a visiting professor from overseas) was established.
April 1984 The Algebraic Analysis Research Division (with a 10-year limit) was established.
May 1989 The Mathematical Physics Research Division (with a 10-year limit) was established.
April 1992 The Algebraic Variety Research Division (with a 10-year limit) was established.
April 1994 Due to the reorganization of the Graduate School of Science, the Division of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences was established. The Division of Mathematical Sciences is subsumed by the Department of Mathematical Sciences in this new division.
June 1994 The Field of Algebraic Analysis Research Division (with a 10-year limit) was established (in the place of the Algebraic Analysis Research Division, which was abolished).
April 1995 The Applied Mathematics Research Division (with a visiting professor from overseas) (with a 10-year limit) was established.
April 1999 Due to reorganization, RIMS consists of three major research divisions (Fundamental Mathematics Research Division, Infinite Analysis Research Division, and Applied Mathematics Research Division) and one attached institute (Applied Mathematical Programming Institute attached to RIMS).
April 2004 The Applied Mathematical Programming Institute attached to RIMS was re-established as the Computer Laboratory.
April 2006 The Center for Research in the Frontiers of Mathematical Science was established (Internal process).
October 2007 The Mathematical Science Joint Research Division (with the Nomura Group) was established (for 3 years) commemorating the awarding of the Carl Friedrich Gauss Prize to Dr. Kiyoshi Ito.
April 2010 RIMS was certified as an advanced Joint Usage / Research Center (Mathematics and mathematical science, until 2015).
April 2012 The Research Center for Quantum Geometry was established (internal process). The Center for Research in the Frontiers of Mathematical Science changed its name to the Center for Research Interaction in Mathematical Sciences.
May 2013 The Liaison Center in Mathematics was established (internal process).
April 2016 The certification of the advanced Joint Usage / Research Center was renewed (Mathematics and mathematical science, until 2021).
December 2017 The Preparatory Center for Research in Next-Generation Geometry was established (internal process).
November 2018 RIMS was certified as an International Joint Usage/Research Center (International Center for Collaborative Study in Mathematical Sciences, until 2021).
April 2019 The Center for Research in Next-Generation Geometry was established (internal process).
