Ph.D. Defense


I have finished my Ph.D. defense today. My committees are Prof. Eitan Tadmor (Chair/Advisor), Prof. Pierre-Emmanuel Jabin, Prof. Dave Levermore, Prof. Antoine Mellet and Prof. Howard Elman (Dean's representative).

My thesis title is, Multi-scale problems on collective dynamics and image processing. The manuscript can be found doi:10.13016/M2WG6T.



  • This is a joint work with Eitan Tadmor.
  • It has been published in a chapter of the book Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Volume 7 of the series Abel Symposia doi:10.1007/978-3-642-25361-4_14.


Here is an outline of the paper.

We propose a numerical approach to solve the minimization problem of the hierarchical decomposition introduced by Tadmor [Ta15], using duality to treat with \(L^{\infty}\) norm inside. And then generate the uniformly bounded solution of \(\nabla\cdot U = F\) in actual computation.
