  2019-07-10  访问:


(Subject code:0701)

Mathematics is a scientific system which researches the quantity relationship, the spatial pattern, and deductive system and so on. This is a collection of strictness, logic, abstraction, accuracy, creativity and imagination, and a vast intellectual treasure trove of resources which cover natural sciences, engineering technology, humanities and social sciences, etc. For human to recognize natural phenomenon and depict natural rules, mathematics subject plays a unique and irreplaceable role, besides, it’s the basis of all natural sciences.

Southwest Petroleum University (SWPU) received the qualification to offer the master’s degree in “Applied Mathematics” in 1998, and this discipline was approved as a “key discipline in Sichuan Province” in 2008 and was awarded the first-level master's degree in “Mathematics” in 2010. In 2003, the doctoral program of “Petroleum Engineering Computing technology" was set up for the first time in the country and the doctoral students were recruited. In 2018, it was successfully approved for a professional master' degree in “Applied Statistics”.

This discipline is tracking the mathematical frontier, based on the study of basic theory of mathematics, taking the mathematical problems in Petroleum Enterprises as the main research object. We pay attention to the intersection and integration of disciplines, mainly expands mathematics and applied mathematics research which focus on problem-oriented driving, and gradually form the following advantages and characteristics:          

(1) Carry on the innovation of basic theory following the frontier discipline: Research direction covers differential equations, optimization, system simulation and information processing, engineering computing theory and application, periodic solutions in differential equations, numerical format for fractional diffusion equations and its optimal control in anomalous diffusion, numerical solution of wave equation, Parameter inversion and identification of differential equations, non-elementary function constrained optimization, set-valued optimization, multi-level optimization and multi-constraint level optimization, nonlinear optimization problems on Hadamard manifolds, fractional optimal control, intelligent predictive control of complex systems, control of complex networks and stochastic fuzzy differential inclusions, etc.

(2) Developing question-driven mathematics research with the help of petroleum industry: By undertaking 117 projects of the national natural science-foundation of China and majoring scientific and technological projects (including sub-projects), etc.; and studying on the relatively basic theory and key technical problems of oil and gas ``Exploration-Development-Marketing". It's developed and enriched fundamental theory and methods in discipline such as Applied Mathematics, Computational Mathematics and so on.

(3) Multi-team coordination, theoretical research and cross application commonly development: School-level youth scientific research and scientific and technological innovation team led by Song Guojie and Wu Xinxing; the research team of pure mathematics represented by Yang Yan and Min Chao; and the Applied Mathematics team led by Liu Zhibin and Guo Dali, which is closely combined with other disciplines. All of them are spare no efforts to carry on mathematics theory and methods innovation and application, which form an academic atmosphere of respect, tolerance and equality, and coordinated research teams.

Computational mathematics is a numerical solution method and theory to research mathematical problems in science technology fields, especially concentrate on the research of efficient and stable numerical algorithm. Numerical algorithm has already used to reduce or even replace some large-scale experiments that are costly or even difficult to achieve. In recently years, relying on the characteristics and advantages of ``Petroleum and Natural Gas range”, ``Geophysics” and their supporting subject groups in our university, and on the basis of new theories and viewpoints arising from the theoretical breakthroughs in numerical algebra and numerical solutions of differential equations. The research directions of seismic wave field numerical simulation, oil and gas reservoir numerical simulation, image processing and application are formed.

3Operational Research and Cybernetics

Operational Research and Cybernetics are closely related and intersecting disciplines such as mathematics, management science, system science and so on. By developing and solving various optimal and control model in system, its provides theoretical basis to different system planning, design, management, optimal control decisions. Our university gives full play to the characteristics and advantages of the double first-class specialty of "Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering" and its supporting subject groups. it is based on the theoretical research of system optimization and control, combined with computer simulation and experimental research. In the field of system simulation predictive control of oil and gas exploration, development and management, the professional direction characterized by operational research and cybernetics application research has been created.

4Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics

Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics is a discipline to study stochastic uncertainty. It provides scientific data processing and statistical inference methods for natural science and social science by studying essence and connotation in various stochastic phenomenon. Relying on the advantages of the subject of "Oil and Gas Engineering" and based on advanced statistical analysis theories and methods, this paper studies the important problems involved in the oil and gas field development industry chain, such as geological statistics, data monitoring, fault diagnosis, optimization decision-making and risk management, and provides theoretical support for oilfield exploration, development and management decision-making in uncertain environment. A series of unique research directions of probability and statistics have been formed.
