This two-volume set presents forty-eight papers on applied mathematics by Fields Medal winner Shing-Tung Yau.

The papers are organized topically into thirteen sections: circuit theory, MRI data analysis, matrix eigenvalues, scientific computing, evolutionary dynamics (in mathematical biology), quantum information (mathematical physics), nonlinear filtering, graph theory, medical imaging, computer vision, computer graphics and geometric modeling, artificial intelligence, and computational geometry and numerical analysis.

Also included are commentaries on Yau’s work in the various topics: S.T. Chui on Yau’s work in circuit theory; Xudong Huang on his work in MRI Data analysis; Mei-Heng Yueh on his work in scientific computing; Gábor Lippner on his work in quantum state transfer; Xiuqiong Chen on his work in nonlinear filtering; Yong Lin on his works on graphs; and Xianfeng David Gu on his work in computer graphics, computer vision, digital geometry processing, medical imaging and artificial intelligence.

The collection begins with prefaces by Bjorn Engquist (University of Texas) and Tony Chang (president, KAUST).
