Especially with regard to (1), the prospective applicant should be aware that Japanese
is the official language in which mathematical and administrative affairs are conducted
here at RIMS. Some individuals may tend to regard this state of affairs as a sort of
``unpleasant obstacle''. On the other hand, at the present time, there is no shortage of
institutions throughout the world at which one may obtain a quality graduate education
in mathematics in English. By contrast, the Japanese language-based mathematical culture
that exists here at RIMS [and indeed at other Japanese universities] is, in my opinion, a
precious cultural asset, both for Japan and for the world.

For more information on official entrance [i.e., approach (1)] to the graduate school, please click
here.

With regard to approach (2), typically visitors may come for a period of any length from a month
to a year or so. In many cases, financial support may be obtained by applying to JSPS.

Individuals who are seriously interested, relative to either of the approaches (1) or (2), in coming
to RIMS with Shinichi Mochizuki as their host are encouraged to contact me directly via e-mail.
When doing so, it would be helpful to provide a detailed description of the research that you have
performed or mathematics that you have studied up till now, as well as of the sort of research that
you wish to pursue at RIMS. Also, when contacting me by e-mail, please be sure to confirm that the
e-mail address that you use is valid as an e-mail address for receiving e-mail replies from my side
(i.e., from outside of your country). For instance, Gmail addresses (at least as far as I know) are valid
worldwide.
First, I would like to thank you for your interest in pursuing your mathematical
studies here at RIMS. Roughly speaking, there are two approaches that may be
taken with regard to coming to RIMS:

 (1) applying for official entrance to the graduate school or for an official post-
   doctoral position
here at RIMS

 (2) arranging to come to RIMS as a visitor whose official affiliation is as a student
   or researcher at some foreign research institute.
