College Introduction

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) has been established at Shenzhen University to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate education, focusing on interdisciplinary teaching and research. As a special platform at Shenzhen University, IAS seeks to

Postgraduate Course

Xiong Wang

Ph.D., Assistant Professor




2014, City University of Hong Kong, Electronic Engineering, Ph.D.

2009, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Mathematics, B.S.

As two of the greatest natural science discoveries in the 20th century, chaos and fractals have been widely investigated and significant progress has been made in the past several decades. It has become an exciting emerging interdisciplinary area in which a broad spectrum of technologies and methodologies are being studied to deal with large, complex, and dynamical problems in science and engineering.


Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

Chaotic Dynamics

Chaotic Circuits Design and Modeling

Chaos-based Secure Communications

Modeling and Chaos in Complicated Biological Systems

Modeling and Chaos in Economical and Financial Systems

Dynamical Systems on Complex Network

Fractal Graph and Arts

Fractal Market Theory and Financial Dynamical Systems Modeling


Some works on-going:

Chaotic system of non-Shilinkov type

Chaotic or hyper-chaotic system with no or stable equilibrium

Multi-wing or multi-scroll chaotic attractors with no equilibrium

Spontaneous symmetry breaking in chaotic systems

I also have strong interest with some very fundamental problems of physics and keep on thinking about them. After Einstein completed his theory of general relativity, he spent his last few decades in Institute for Advance Study at Princeton, carrying on a solitary quest toward a unified theory of everything till the end of his life. He failed to fulfill his great dream due to many inevitable difficulties at his time. Some fundamental problems I am thinking about: nature of space-time, space-time symmetry and internal symmetry, symmetry and breaking, the mystery of scale.



My teaching philosophy is a combination of general education and professional education.

Welcome students who are interested with mathematical modeling, financial analysis and fundamental science to participate in my reading club or class

My main interests of teaching or discussion include:

Basic mathematics, reading classical mathematics text books, for students interested in pure mathematics

Mathematical modeling and basic software tools, for students interested in applied mathematics

Financial mathematics, quantitative investment, for students interested in financial modeling

Science and culture, ideology and philosophy of natural science, the beauty of mathematics and theoretical physics, suitable for students interested in fundamental science
