Method of Astronomy and physics education
|(some details of the work)||For the faculty education, I give lectures on basic physics and Astro- physics. Of many astrophysics research groups in Japan, ours show highest activities in the field of high energy astrophysic and cosmic electro- dynamics. I am working on high energy paritcle acceleration in the pulsar megnetosphere mostly in the theoretical point of view. I also orgaize an observational research group with X-ray telescopes, collaborating with ISAS, RIKEN, and NASDA. My research work extends to origin of magnetic field and cosmic rays in galaxies and clusters of galaxies.|
|(social activity)||We have a domestic actitiy for astronomoy education, offering publich lectrures and experimental activity for children.|
