Research Summary

Numerical Analysis and scientific computing, high order methods, spectral methods.

Jae-Hun Jung's main area of research is the numerical approximation of  nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws. Solutions to nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws become discontinuous easily and the numerical approximation of such solutions is challenging.  Jung’s research aims to develop stable and efficient numerical methods for solving discontinuous problems and apply them to various physical and engineering problems. His current research topics include the following: Spectral methods, WENO methods, High order hybrid methods, Radial basis function methods, Resolution of the Gibbs phenomenon, Spectral approximations of numerical relativity, Computational fluid dynamics, Kinetic theory.
