Description

Professor Yang Tong, Chair Professor of Mathematics, was granted the title "RGC Senior Research Fellow”. He will use the Senior Research Fellow Scheme (SRFS) grant to develop analytic techniques that can be applied to studies on solution behaviour and fluid dynamic limits of some typical kinetic models, including the Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system and the Vlasov-Nordstrom-Fokker-Planck system, as well as other systems of kinetic equations. The findings of the project are expected to greatly enrich existing mathematical theories in those areas.

The purpose of the SRFS is to support exceptionally outstanding academics to facilitate their research efforts and promote research excellence. The awardees were selected based on the contribution and potential impact of the proposed research project, their proven research track record, and their leadership and vision, as well as the support of their university. Each SRFS awardee will receive a fellowship grant of about HK$7.8 million over a period of 60 months.
