Personal profile

Dr Li's areas of expertise are in the fields of computational methods for fluid flow, mathematical modelling, and neural networks. His current research interest focuses on the applications of the adaptive mesh refinement methods he proposed based on the qualitative theory of differential equations. The methods contain techniques for the selection of finite points in a domain that provides sufficient information about the characteristics of flows in that domain. The accuracy, reliability and cost of the methods have been verified by test benchmarks. These methods can be applied to any mathematical models containing continuity equation for steady flow or incompressible fluid. In our daily life, the methods can be used to investigate any water or air flows with speed less than 370km per hour.
