名家简介: 

Professor Guo received his B.S. from Peking University in 1987. He received his Ph.D in Mathematics from Brown University
in 1993. He was a Courant Instructor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences for 1993-95. He joined the faculty of 
the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University as an Assistant Professor in September 1995. He was an Assistant 
Professor at Princeton University for 1996-97. His professional awards include an Honorable Mention in SIAM Student Paper 
Competition in 1992, an A. P. Sloan Dissertation Fellowship in 1993, an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship for 1995-98. Professor 
Guo is an A. P. Sloan Research Fellow for 1998-2000. He was named a Manning Assistant Professor at Brown for 1998 to 1999,
 and was promoted to an Associate Professor in 1999 and then Professor in 2004.

INTERESTS
Professor Guo's research is concerned with the rigorous mathematical study of partial differential equations arising in various
scientific applications. More specifically, he has been working on PDE arising in the kinetic theory of statistical physics, especially 
in connection with the nonlinear stability of their steady states. The most fundamental equation in the kinetic theory for describing
gas molecules is the celebrated Boltzmann equation. Many fundamental macroscopic fluid equations, such as the Euler and 
Navier-Stokes equations, can be derived from the Boltzmann theory. He has been working on stability of Maxwellian states in the 
Boltzmann theory. The time evolution of a galaxy can then be described by the Vlasov theory. There are many well known steady 
state galaxy models. Professor Guo has been developing mathematical tools to analyze the dynamical stability of these steady galaxy
models. Instabilities of equilibria in many physical and biological sciences has always attracted great attention. It is important, 
from a scientific point of view, to understand the rate, time scale, structure, pattern and dynamics of various instabilities in a fully 
nonlinear setting. Professor Guo has been working on developing general mathematical framework to prove and characterize such 
nonlinear instabilities.
