SCIENTIFIC CONTENT

Abstract

Kinetic descriptions play a critical role in the physical, social, and biological sciences, and have expanded into diverse applications of cutting-edge technology ranging from microfluidics, semiconductors, polymers and plasma to traffic networking and swarming. Modern kinetic theory captures fundamental issues in the modeling and simulation of phenomena across length and time scales, from the atomistic to the continuum. In the context of kinetic theory mathematical approaches help the design of numerical methods and, conversely, numerical simulations help improve the quantitative understanding of underlying complex problems.

Goals

This workshop is targeting primarily researchers at an early stage of their career. It will focus on recent developments in the modeling and simulation of multiscale phenomena via kinetic methods. These include, for example, analytic techniques for the passage from particle systems to macroscopic descriptions in classical and quantum mechanical settings; computational methods for multiscale problems in materials science and fluid dynamics; and the asymptotic analysis of kinetic equations to describe macroscopic behaviors (homogenization of transport problems, diffusion limit, hydrodynamic limits).
