Yuan Gao
William W. Elliott Assistant Research Professor

Current Research Interests

My research interest is the mathematical analysis of nonlinear evolution equations derived from physics problems, especially in materials science and surface science. I mainly work on 4th order degenerated parabolic equations, coupled equation/systems with dynamic boundary condition and multiscale problems. The methods invovled are entropy method, spectral analysis, calculus of variation, gradient flows, numerical simulation, operator theory, and control theory.
