Research Activities

We are currently investigating scientific machine learning methods for studying dynamical systems. Namely, we are using solving PDEs via deep neural networks created with the DeepXDE Python library, rather than via traditional numerical methods. We aim to understand how alterations to the NN, such as variations in the number of hidden layers, affect the accuracy of the output.
