Research Abstract 
1. Head Investigator's results : (1) Existence and uniqueness theorem with an error estimation of Galerkin approximation has been established. This theorem is very useful for numerical analysis of quasiperiodic phenomena which appear in nonlinear oscillation, modulation and detection of communication. The theorem is applied to compute the quasiperiodic solutions to Van der Pol type and Duffing type equations. (2) The concept of numerically ill conditioning of solutions of the initial value problem of ordinary differential equations is given. The concept is novel and important in numerical analysis of ordinary differential equations. (3) The arclength method (or geometric method) becomes very powerful for the bifurcation analysis in nonlinear problems. 2. Investigators' main results : (1) T. Ushijima investigates the eigenvalue problems of water waves and gives some important paterns of global behaviour of relative erros in eigenvalues. (2) H. Okamoto examines the stabilities of steady

axisymmetric flows and determines how these stabilities change upon varying the geometric parameters in 2dimensional NavierStokes equations. (3) , H. Kawarada studies on Stefan problems with free boundary and computes the solidification problems with change of volume. The short time existence of the unsteady free boundary appearing in the porous media is studied by use of NashMoser's implicit function theorem. NashMoser's implicit theorem has been modified in an applicable form. (4) F. Kikuchi studies the mixed formulations for finite element analysis in electromagnetism and solidstate mechanics. He developed some weak formulations for finite element analysis of magnetostatic and electrostatic problems by means of the Hilbert space method. He received the ISHIKAWA award. (5) T. Mitsui made a new Astable 3stage fourth order RungeKutta formula which can be calculated in parallel. Specifically, forcus is given to general solution for formulae parameters of IRK under the symplectic and the order conditions. Examples of such formulae are constructed and linear orders are given for up to three stages. (6) M. Mimura studies the dynamics of phase and surface of chemical waves and solidification by means of the moving pictures. A sizespace distribution model of biological individuals including two effects of densitydependent growth rates for size and chemotactic aggregation for space have been proposed. Assuming that the spatial movement is rapid in comparison with the growth process, he uses timescaling arguments to reduce the model to an approximating system of only size distribution. He attended and presented a lecture on ICIAM (1991, USA) about his work on pattern formation arising from systems of reaction diffusion equations in space two and higher. Less
