The inverse problem for the local ray transformApr 25 2013Jul 20 2013In this paper we consider the local X-ray transform for general flows. We extend the results on the local and global invertibility of the geodesic ray transform proved by Uhlmann and Vasy \cite{UV} to the X-ray transform for a general flow. The key improvement ... More
The Poincare center-focus problem for a class of higher order polynomial differential systemsNov 29 2018In this paper, I have proved that for a class of polynomial differential systems of degree n+1 ( where n is an arbitrary positive integer) the composition conjecture is true. I give the sufficient and necessary conditions for these differential systems ... More
Generalized solutions to the Dirichlet problem of translating mean curvature equationsFeb 05 2019Mar 18 2019In this paper we study the Dirichlet problem of translating mean curvature equations over domains in Riemannian manifolds with dimension $n$. Imitating the generalized solution theory of Miranda-Giusti, we define a new conformal area functional and a ... More
