Mean Curvature Flow in the Heisenberg Group

Geometric Partial Differential Equations Unit

As an important branch of mathematics, partial differential equations and geometric analysis are widely applied to various fields of science including material sciences, image processing, control theory and so on. The Geometric Partial Differential Equations Unit focuses on establishing new analytic approaches to understand behavior and properties of solutions to nonlinear partial differential equations arising in geometry and related areas. The unit aims to solve real-world problems by developing the theory of methematical analysis.
