Assoc Prof Andrew James Kricker | Prof. Kricker's most significant research interest lies in the mathematical ramifications of current developments in mathematical and theoretical physics. To be precise, he is interested in the ramifications of certain developments in quantum field theory and quantum gravity in the fields of topology, algebra, and combinatorics. Prof. Kricker's particular speciality is in so-called "quantum topological invariants". These are invariants of knots, 3-manifolds, and various other low-dimensional topological structures, that arise from Topological Quantum Field Theories. More generally, he has a considerable general interest in the fields that surround this topic: knot theory, the theory of low-dimensional manifolds, Lie algebras, Hopf algebras, representation theory, homological algebra, algebraic combinatorics, and so on. |

Assoc Prof CHUA Chek Beng | Prof. Chua studies the theory of continuous optimization, and develops efficient solution methods for several types of optimization models. He has designed and analyzed interior-point algorithms for semidefinite optimization, symmetric cone optimization and homogeneous cone optimization. He studies the possibility of applying homogeneous cone optimization on various problems where semidefinite optimization models are used. This study is partly driven by the possible reduction in the size when semidefinite optimization models are solved as homogeneous cone optimization problems, hence allowing large-scale problems to be solved via homogeneous cone optimization. He also investigated and proved several properties of the primal-dual central paths for semidefinite optimization and homogeneous cone optimization. These properties are useful in the study of local convergence behaviour of path-following algorithms. |

Dr Gary Royden Watson Greaves | Algebraic combinatorics and number theory |
Asst Prof Gu Mile | One of the most remarkable facts about the universe is that it can be simulated on a computer. No matter what systems we study, whether it is the dynamics of planets or that of fluids, the rise of fall of tides or stock markets, they all can be simulated by a computer. This fact fascinates me.
After all, a computer is typically built out of silicon; it runs via the electro-magnetic force. What a priori reason would it allow us to understand the motion of planets governed by gravity, fundamental particles govern by the strong and weak force? This universality is, when you think about, rather remarkable. Somehow, everything we know around us, can be reduced to the processing of information.
My research interests are motivated by this remarkable observation. Can we find interdisciplinary laws that span multiple disciplines through the understanding of how nature fundamentally processes information? Some current directions:
On outset, Quantum and complexity science appears to be very different. The former details with objects at the atomic scale – atoms, electrons and photons. The latter, on the other hand, is typically associated with macroscopic systems is many interacting components – the weather, traffic, stock markets.
Yet the two science, in fact, an intimately linked; both are bring transformed by the study of information. In quantum science, new information theoretic techniques have allowed the `second quantum revolution’; heralding exciting new quantum technologies such as quantum cryptography and quantum computation. Meanwhile, in complexity science, researchers’ new ways of understanding just how massive systems interact with each other by seeing how they transform and process bits of data.
My interest is to unite these two fields – by forging new connections. Can quantum computation lead to new ways of understanding complex systems? Can the use of methods of complexity science help us understand how quantum computer’s get their power and bring forth new quantum technologies?

What Makes Quantum Computers Powerful?
What are the resources behind Quantum Advantage? Quantum computers are heralded to do many things that classical computers cannot, but what resource powers this advantage? For a long time, people thought that the main culprit is quantum entanglement – the unique quantum phenomena where the realities of two spatially separated particles are closely linked. Yet we now see that this may not be the full story. DQC1, for example, seems to allow us to compute the normalized trace of an exponentially large matrix in efficient time – and yet contain negligible entanglement. Meanwhile quantum illumination allows the better detection of faint particles far away in regimes so noisy that entanglement cannot survive. What other resources are associated with improved quantum advantage? We are interested in this question both for practical and foundational concerns. On the one hand, it can lead to noise resilient quantum technologies; on the other it may tell us fundamentally what is quantum. |

Assoc Prof Wong Jia Yiing, Patricia | Dr Wong has vast research experience in differential equations, difference equations, integral equations, dynamic equations on time scales, as well as numerical mathematics and inequalities. In the earlier years, Dr Wong worked in the fields of numerical mathematics and inequalities, particularly in splines and error inequalities of polynomial interpolation. The work done is documented in the monograph [1]. Later she has been working on differential and difference equations, focusing on the oscillatory behaviour and also the existence of solutions under various boundary conditions. Recently, in addition to differential and difference equations, Dr Wong also works on integral equations, as well as dynamic equations on time scales, which include differential and difference equations as special cases. The results of the recent work, particularly on the existence of solutions of boundary value problems, have applications to a wide spectrum of physical problems. The work is ongoing, those completed till 2013 is documented in the monographs [2]--[4]. Dr Wong has published 4 monographs and more than 200 research papers in international refereed journals. Presently, Dr Wong serves on the editorial board of Advances in Difference Equations (USA), Boundary Value Problems (USA), Abstract and Applied Analysis (USA), Advances in Dynamical Systems and Applications (USA), and International Journal of Differential Equations (USA).

Asst Prof Xia Kelin | The last century has witnessed the tremendous advancement of Biological Sciences. The availability of massive biological data, high-performance computers, efficient computational algorithms, and mathematical and physical models have paved the way for Biological Sciences to undertake a historic transition from being qualitative, phenomenological, and descriptive to being quantitative, analytical, and predictive.
