Professor
Biography
Prof. Chiang attended several primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong before he received both his undergraduate (1984) and postgraduate (1991) qualification from University College London. His PhD was directed under the late Professor J. Milne Anderson on topics related to Schwarzian derivatives and linear differential equations. Although special functions are almost as old as calculus, many of the centuries old special functions that appear frequently in applications are still far from being understood. His current interests lie in application of Nevanlinna theory, algebraic and geometric methods to better understand these special functions.Research Interests
