Gui-Qiang G. Chen's main research areas lie in partial differential equations (PDEs), nonlinear analysis, and their connections/applications to mechanics, geometry, and other areas of mathematics and science. His recent research interests include nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws, shock wave theory, nonlinear PDEs of mixed type, and related free boundary problems, singular limit problems, nonlinear stability/instability problems, weak convergence methods, and other nonlinear problems/methods. His research interests also include measure-theoretical analysis, geometric PDEs, stochastic PDEs, statistical physics, and numerical analysis.
