EDUCATION

  • Ph. D. student in CAAM, Rice University, now
  • Master Degree in Computational Mathematics; Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2003

    Advisor: Ya-xiang Yuan

  • Bachelor Degree in Computational Mathematics; School of Mathematics Sciences, Peking University, 2000
  • Model Reduction in Dynamical Systems

Kai Sun received a Bachelor degree (2000) from Peking University at Beijing and Master degree (2003) from Chinese Academy of Sciences. He then became a Ph. D. student in Department of Computational & Applied Mathematics (CAAM) of Rice University at Houston, Texas.

Mr. Sun is interested in general area of Numerical Linear Algebra. He currently works with Dr. Sorensen in dimension reduction techniques for Dynamical Systems. Previously, he worked on some Numerical Optimization problems with Dr. Yuan. He also served as intern for Multi-Mode User Interface group of Microsoft Research (China) solving the numerical problems in navigation systems and handwriting recognition and retrieval. 

"The field of numerical linear algebra is more beautiful, and more fundamental, than its rather dull name may suggest. More beautiful, because it is full of powerful ideas that are quite unlike those normally emphasized in a linear algebra area. More fundamental, because, thanks to a trick of history, 'numerical' linear algebra is really applied linear algebra. It is here that one finds essential ideas that every mathematical scientist needs to work effectively with vectors and matrices."

-- Lloyd N. Trefethen
