Math @ Duke



Jingxian Huang, Associate In Research

Jingxian Huang

I am a graduate student in the Department of Mathematics, Duke University. My advisor is Professor Mark A. Stern. Before coming to Duke, I received my bachelor degree in mathematics and economics from Peking University, China.

I am interested in geometric analysis with an emphasis on harmonic mapping problems. I use sigma models to study harmonic maps.  Harmonic maps are critical points of a  kinetic energy functional subject to nonlinear constraints and consequently satisfy a nonlinear Laplace equation. I focus on developing techniques to analyze singularities of solutions to these non-linear partial differential equations, i.e., when and where the solutions become non-differentiable.

Please note: Jingxian has left the Mathematics department at Duke University; some info here might not be up to date.
