Research overview:
In nature there are a lot of asymmetric objects. However there are fractal, multifractal, self-affinity similarity and so on which is based on self-similarity in many asymmetric materials in nature, and which is able to be analized by the concept introduced by Mandebrot. We try to find these new symmetries in natural objects such as adoptation of food by cookroach, movement of conglomerate in a high mountain, patterns in a fusion plasma and so on, where we believe that we can find some universal properties and diversity properties in above mentioned various phenomena.
