My technical tool bag includes functional analysis and the theories of ordinary and partial differential equations, numerical analysis and computing, and I am beginning to learn probability theory. I am particularly interested in problems that relate to classical physics, rigid body dynamics, and continuum mechanics of solids and fluids. My book, Programming Projects in C , reflects my philosophy in that regard.

Mechanical Engineering (Course 2)
From the reviews: "This text provides a comprehensive introduction to several techniques for the numerical computation of control problems governed by mainly elliptic partial differential equations PDE. Show next xx. Structural dynamics and control group studies practical engineering problems. This group studies nonlinear stochastic vibrations in typical structures, including key theories and analysis methods about dynamical characteristics of multi-degrees-of-freedom and continuous systems in combination of new materials , stability, vibration responses, and optimal control.
This group studies vibration suppressions, noise reduction, and vibration control of complex engineering structures in the modern vibration control lab and it builds strong experimental basis for basic theoretical research. With rapid developments, General and Fundamental Mechanics has undertaken many state-level, large-scaled research projects, and has yielded fruitful results both in education and research.
We have many advanced scientific research equipments, especially the foundation of Stochastic Dynamics Laboratory. The subject is founded with the support of the Institute of Applied Mechanics, and had its master program since , and it offered the doctoral program since It was selected as the National Key Second Disciplines in We have 9 professors, 9 doctoral supervisors, 8 associate professors and senior engineers. Having experienced rapid developments, Solid Mechanics has undertaken many state-level, large-scaled research projects, and has yielded fruitful results both in education and research.
There are more than 80 state-level research projects in total, of which more than 30 projects are from National Science Fundation of China, about 10 of them are key projects. Professor H. Gao visiting Mechanics Lab at the accompany of principal Yang Wei. The subject is founded with the support of the Institute of Applied Mechanics, and had graduate students since and had its master program since It offered the doctoral program since It was selected as the Provincial Key Second Disciplines in This subject has developed more than masters and 5 doctors.
Now we have 8 graduate students who are pursuing doctoral degrees. Engineering Mechanics has many advantages. The first, we can offer interdisciplinary backgrounds, which offer necessary conditions for solving complex problems in mechanics. The second, we have all kinds of research facilities.
