Professor Zhou studies the 1-D, 2-D inverse scattering theory, using the method of Riemann-Hilbert problems. His current research is concentrated in a nonlinear type of microlocal analysis on Riemann-Hilbert problems. Subjects of main interest are integrable and near intergrable PDE, integrable statistical models, orthogonal polynomials and random matrices, monodromy groups and Painleve equations with applications in physics and algebraic geometry. A number of classical and new problems in analysis, numerical analysis, and physics have been solved by zhou or jointly by zhou and his collaborators.
