About the emblem
This emblem is designed by the modern artist Chihiro Shimotani of Nara prefecture. It comes from the initials of the name "Oka Mathematical Institute". The script "O" in the middle of the emblem is a mathematical symbol standing for a structure sheaf. The initial "O" of Oka is often used for the structure sheaf because Kiyoshi Oka was deeply involved in its discovery.
