- Dr. Aihara has been studying chaos in neural systems since the late
1970's.
He learned complexities of real neurons and beauties of neural network
theory from Prof. Gen Matsumoto at the Electrotechnical Laboratory and
Prof. Shun-ichi Amari at the University of Tokyo, respectively.
His present research interests include mathematical modeling of
neural networks composed of neurons with chaotic dynamics,
computational dynamics of the chaotic neural networks and the new
generation of analog computing.
- Since almost all of systems in this real world are fundamentally
nonlinear, deterministic chaos, which is a typical attractor of such
nonlinear systems, is ubiquitous. Examples of chaotic systems
which he has analyzed are chaotic responses of real neurons, chaotic
analog IC and chaotic washing machines.
He and his wife, Chiiko, have three children Ikkyuh, Kazusa and Chiari
who constitute a lovely three-body problem.
