Presents an analytical theory of the electronic states in ideal low-dimensional systems and finite crystals based on a theory of differential equations approach


Demonstrates that the existence of the boundary-dependent states is a fundamental distinction of the quantum confinement of Bloch waves


Introduces a general and more applicable theoretical formalism based on the theory of periodic Sturm-Liouville equations for investigating one-dimensional photonic crystals and phononic crystals


Provides a general theoretical formalism for investigating the existence and properties of surface states/modes in semi-infinite one-dimensional crystals

Shang Yuan REN pursued his graduate study with Professor Kun HUANG at Peking University(PKU), worked on theoretical semiconductor physics after he graduated from PKU in 1963. He worked with Professor Walter A. Harrison at Stanford University on theoretical solid state physics from 1978-1980, as one of earliest visiting scholars from P. R. China to the United States. Then he worked as a research associate at University of Missouri at Kansas City, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was back to the University of Science and Technology of China(USTC) in 1981 and worked as an associate professor and then a professor of physics at USTC. He worked as a visiting professor at University of Notre Dame, and a research professor at Arizona State University. He joined PKU as a professor of physics since 1994. He is now an emeritus professor at PKU. He has published about 100 research articles. His research interests include Low-Dimensional Physics, Theoretical Solid State Physics, Physics of Semiconductors/Semiconductor Devices, M]obius Inversions and Their Applications in Science and Engineering, Electronic Structure of Biological Macromolecules.
