PISA-HOKKAIDO Summer School on Mathematics and Its Applications

Cofinanced by Hokkaido University (Leading Program) and partially supported by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Pisa and by the Scuola Normale Superiore

30 August 2016 - 13 September 2016


The aim of the School is to provide intensive mini-courses in several mathematical research domains of current interest as well as to present methods for applying theoretical tools to financial mathematics (for details see here), biomedicine and mathematical physics. It is intended mainly for master students (laurea magistrale) and Ph.D. students.

For a description of the COURSES and their NOTES please see the Planned activities section and link to the Summer School in San Miniato. To view when the courses will be held, please see the schedule on the Galileo Project Overview webpage. Further details can also be retrieved here.

The School is part of a more general plan for scientific collaboration between Hokkaido University from one side and the Scuola Normale Superiore, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and Department of Mathematics of Pisa University to stimulate the exchange of students and the development of scientific research. The first and second Schools have been organized in Sapporo in the Spring and Summer 2015 ( This will be third School and will take place in Pisa.

In the frame of the above-mentioned activity, prospective participants in the PISA-HOKKAIDO Summer School can also attend the Summer School of Mathematics for Economic and Social Sciences that will take place in San Miniato from September 12th to 16th. All information, including directions for registration and application for financial support, can be retrieved at

This School is also one of the intiatives included in the anniversary programme for the 150th Anniversary of the Diplomatic Relations between Italy and Japan that is celebrated in 2016. (
