Prof. Guo’s major research area is systems and control theory. His representative research achievements include the following: 1) He resolved the wellknown longstanding open problems concerning convergence of selftuning regulators and optimality of adaptive linearquadratic control; 2) He established a general mathematical theory of adaptive filtering and made such theory applicable to stochastic systems with feedback; 3) He initiated the investigation of the maximum capability of the feedback mechanism and found several critical constants characterizing the limits of feedback; 4) He resolved the open problem on “connectivity” and established the synchronization of a basic class of multiagent systems with large population; 5) He initiated the investigation of cooperation and controllability of gamebased control systems; 6) He established the theoretical foundation of the most widely used PID controller for nonlinear uncertain dynamical systems.

Shige Peng, Professor of Shandong University, Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has made many significant contributions in stochastic control, stochastic analysis, mathematical finance, and the theory of nonlinear expectations.
He discovered and proved ‘General stochastic maximum principle of optimal controls' (1990, SIAM CON) which solved a longstanding open problem of the field; He joint with Etienne Pardoux, established the existence and uniqueness of nonlinear backward stochastic differential equations, their paper in 1990 is a founder paper of the BSDE theory; His another paper join with El Karoui and Quenez in 1997 has brought BSDE into one of the principle mathematical tools in robust pricing and robust risk measuring. In 1991 he established Nonlinear FeynmanKac formula, revealing the inherent relation between nonlinear parabolic and elliptic PDE and probability. In 1997 he introduced nowadays well known notion of nonlinear "gexpectation", which through has become popular in robust economics and dynamical risk measures in quantitative finance.
