|Choe, Boo Rim||Univariable or multi-variable complex function theory, operator theory in function space, harmonic function theory, Hardy space, Bergman space, Block space, BMOA space, harmonic analysis|
|Yang, Seong-Deog||Minimal surfaces modeled from soap film and Riemannian/Lorentzian manifolds modeled after real-world spaces|
|Kim,Hong-Joong||Computational fluid dynamics and mathematical finance scientific computing (computational fluid dynamics, mathematical finance)|
|Kim,Young-Wook||Geometric function theory, Riemannian geometry, and geometry in singular spaces; geometric problems related to real-world problems, graphics or data processing|
|Kim, Junseok||Research in various fields of natural sciences, medical engineering, and financial engineering based on partial differential equations, numerical analysis, and computer programming algorithms|
|Koo, Hyungwoon||Functional analysis of harmonic functions and complex functions; research on Toeplitz operators and composition operations in Berman space or Hardy space|
The department seeks to attain higher standards of education and research by recruiting outstanding full-time faculty. Every year, post-doctoral researchers and visiting professors actively engage in research at the Department of Mathematics.
