Netra Khanal's research interests are in the field of partial differential equations. He is also interested in ordinary differential equations, numerical analysis, application of mathematics in business, finance and economics, and mathematical modeling. He has diversified his research recently into statistical modeling with emphasis on environment, epidemiology of cancer, and cybersecurity and information systems.
Netra Khanal has published his research articles in peer-reviewed journals. His first paper on the Kawahara equation was published in Nonlinearity, 2008. His second paper on extended fifth order KdV type equations was published in Discrete and Continuous Dynamical System, 2009; the third paper on complex valued Burgers and KdV Burgers equations was published in Journal of Nonlinear Sciences, 2010; the fourth paper on fifth order complex KdV types equations was published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical.
Khanal's other papers are published in Communications for Statistical Applications and Methods, Annals of Data Science, Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods, Journal of Applied Statistics, Journal of Cyber Security Technology, Global Journal of Mathematical Sciences, International Scientific Journal of Nonlinear Analysis in Engineering System, Pi in the Sky and The Nepali Math. Science Report. Some of the recent papers are listed here:
