Qin Sheng received his Ph.D. degree in numerical analysis from the University of Cambridge, England, in 1990. He is a Full Professor at Baylor University, USA. He has supervised a number of doctoral and masters students and been active in his research fields. He has over 70 publications and his study is funded by several agencies. He is on editorial boards of several international journals and serves as the North American Regional Editor for International Journal of Computer Mathematics. He is a member of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and Cambridge in America. He considers that both theory and methods of numerical analysis are important to many computational applications. Professor Sheng’s main research interests lie in solving singular partial differential equations via adaptive and/or splitting finite difference methods. He is particularly interested in problems with important practical applications, such as that in electro-optics, quenching-combustion, solitary wave; singularly perturbed, fluid dynamics, and other nonlinear differential equations.
