My research areas are numerical methods for partial differential equations, numerical methods for eigenvalue problem, finite element method, numerical methods for differential-integral problems and theirs applications. I am especially interested in the numerical method designing and theirs theoretical analysis.

Numerical Methods for Eigenvalue Problems

1. It is well known that the classical multigrid method and domain decomposition method is designed for linear problems. How about nonlinear problems?

2. Based on a new interesting understanding of the Aubin-Nitsche technique in the finite element theory, we develop a type of multilevel correction method for the eigenvalue problem. This multilevel correction method can transform the eigenvalue problem solving to a boundary value problem solving and small scale eigenvalue problems solving in a very coarse finite dimensional space.

3. The multilevel correction method provides a reasonable way to design a multigrid method for nonlinear problems, linear and nonlinear eigenvalue problems.

4. The multilevel correction method can also be used to design the multigrid method for other nonlinear problems such as semilinear problem and optimal controls of elliptic equations.

5. The multilevel correction method can couple with other efficient numerical methods for boundary value problems to design the efficient solves for eigenvalue problems, semilinear problems and so on.

6. The multilevel correction method can provide an idea to design the parallel method for nonlinear problems.

SoftWare: FEM_MATLAB (A Matlab software can do the multilevel correction method)

Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations

1. We prove the lower bound results for the error estimates of the general piecewise polynomial approximations in the general norm sense and on the general meshes. Based on the lower bound results, we derive the necessity of the higher order polynomial interpolation in the superconvergence and extrapolation methods.

2. The lower bound results also provide a mathematical tool to prove the asymptotic lower bound results of the eigenvalues by some nonconforming finite element methods.
