From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki

I am Tongli Zhang from Virginia Tech (

looking forward to a great summer!

1. What topics do you have some expertise in and would you be willing to help others learn them?

A1: mathematical modeling with ordinary differential equations; bifurcation analysis.

2. What do you want to learn at the CSSS?

A2: topology; qualitative analysis of ordinary differential equations

3. Do you have any projects or research interests that would benefit from an interdisciplinary approach?

A3: yes, I am modeling cancer development

4. Do you have any ideas for what sort of project you would like to do this summer?

A4:not yet, I will search in the first week.

5. Suppose you could travel one-hundred years in the future and ask researchers any three questions. What would those questions be?

A5:I like this question: 1) How can we cure cancer? 2) how can we analyze one system with 1000 nonlinear ordinary differential equations? 3) How can we search a multi-dimensional space efficiently and throughfully?
