Presentation of the Workshop

Kinetic theory plays a central role in many areas of mathematical physics, from nanoscales to fluid mechanics. It is an indispensable tool in the mathematical description of applications in physical science, from its origin in dilute gases, to wide applications such as fluid mechanics, polymers, cells, plasmas.

On the one hand, kinetic models provide more detailed and accurate description of regimes where hydrodynamic equations are either invalid or simply not available. Thus, kinetic theory is at the core of multiscale modeling, which connects fundamental invisible microscopic models with macroscopic models. As an example, the celebrated Boltzmann equation is the foundation of the kinetic theory for dilute collections of particles, which undergo elastic binary collisions. The Boltzmann theory is at the center of a series of multi-scaled physical models that connect microscopic multiparticle models to macroscopic fluid models such as the Navier-Stokes equations. On the other hand, fluid mechanics, especially fluid dynamics, is an active field of research in mathematics and numerical analysis with many unsolved or partly solved problems.

Many challenges remain in both the analysis and modelling for such problems. This workshop program in kinetic theory and fluid mechanics will provide the participants with an introduction to a broad range of analytical and modelling aspects of both domains.
