Xin Yao's Research Interests: Solving Differential Equations Using
Evolutionary and Hybrid Algorithms
Many real world engineering problems require solving differential equations.
Some of these equations are analytically intractable and difficult to solve
using the classical numerical methods. Evolutionary algorithms can be used to
solve them. We have tested our ideas on linear equations and nonlinear partial
and ordinary differential equations.
