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.


  • To present the ongoing research of leading experts on the modeling, mathematical analysis and computational aspects of kinetic theories
  • To identify promising new avenues of research
  • To formulate a number of problems that are at once tractable and have potential to provide further insight into the nature of kinetic description of phenomena across different scales
