The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Discrete mathematics, Combinatorics, Random graph, Random regular graph and Indifference graph. In general Discrete mathematics, his work in Pathwidth, Line graph, Vertex and Graph partition is often linked to Power law linking many areas of study. As part of his studies on Combinatorics, he often connects relevant subjects like Eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Integral graph and Directed graph. His work on Giant component as part of general Random graph research is often related to Exponent, thus linking different fields of science. His Spectral graph theory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Algebraic connectivity and Rayleigh quotient.

Fan Chung focuses on Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Graph, Random graph and Random walk. In his research, Laplace operator is intimately related to Eigenvalues and eigenvectors, which falls under the overarching field of Combinatorics. His Discrete mathematics research focuses on Almost surely and how it connects with Degree.

His Random walk studies intersect with other disciplines such as PageRank, Heat kernel, Stationary distribution and Laplacian matrix. The concepts of his PageRank study are interwoven with issues in Conductance and Algorithm. His study ties his expertise on Graph product together with the subject of Indifference graph.

His primary areas of investigation include Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Random walk, Graph and PageRank. His primary area of study in Combinatorics is in the field of Random graph. His work deals with themes such as Random regular graph, Graph enumeration, Convergence, Class and Limit, which intersect with Random graph.

Fan Chung usually deals with Graph and limits it to topics linked to Almost surely and Expander graph and Linear number. His work carried out in the field of PageRank brings together such families of science as Algorithm, Mathematical optimization and Approximation algorithm. Fan Chung focuses mostly in the field of Eigenvalues and eigenvectors, narrowing it down to topics relating to Laplace operator and, in certain cases, Sigma.
