Pingwen Zhang received his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1992 under the supervision of Professor Long-An Ying at Peking University. He then joined Peking Universitys School of Mathematical Sciences as a faculty member. Since 1999, he serves as the Director of its Department of Scientific Computing and Engineering. In 2001, he became the Executive Deputy Director of the Center of Computational Science and Engineering, an institute dedicated to research in large-scale computation with the goal of developing a parallel computing platform.
Throughout his career, Pingwen Zhang has benefited from the work of many excellent collaborators, post-docs and graduate students. His research on vortex methods resulted in a book co-authored with his advisor. Zhenhuan Teng and Zhang advanced both the theoretical and numerical analysis of conservation laws. Applying the boundary integral methods, Zhang and Thomas Hou demonstrated the well-posedness for the linearized motion of 3D water waves and proved the convergence of their new algorithm. Together with Ruo Li and Tao Tang, Zhang developed a new moving mesh method based on a harmonic mapping and successfully applied it to many physical problems. Zhang, Weinan E and Pingbing Ming proved that the error in HMM simulations of the elliptic and parabolic homogenization problems is controlled by the standard error plus a new term called e(HMM). Collaborators Weinan E and Tiejun Li, Post-Doctoral Candidates Hui Zhang and Guanghua Ji and many excellent students have worked with Zhang on the multiscale modeling of complex fluids. This extensive effort examines many aspects of the theoretical and numerical analysis of phase separation, transition and nucleation of polymers, liquid crystal polymers, and membranes. Together these colleagues have written more than 70 scientific journal articles over the last 15 years.
Pingwen Zhang also actively serves the mathematical community as editor for several leading journals in applied and computational mathematics, including the SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, Journal of Computational Mathematics, Communications in Computational Physics and Communications in Mathematical Sciences.
