Xin Zhou, Professor Emeritus
Professor Zhou studies the 1D, 2D inverse scattering theory, using the method of RiemannHilbert problems. His
current research is concentrated in a nonlinear type of microlocal analysis on RiemannHilbert problems. Subjects
of main interest are integrable and near intergrable PDE, integrable statistical models, orthogonal polynomials and
random matrices, monodromy groups and Painleve equations with applications in physics and algebraic geometry.
A number of classical and new problems in analysis, numerical analysis, and physics have been solved by zhou or
jointly by zhou and his collaborators.  Contact Info:
