Kinetic Equations: Modeling, Analysis and Numerics

A celebration of Irene M. Gamba's impact in modeling, analysis and numerical simulations of kinetic equations

Sept 18-22, 2017, UT Austin.

Kinetic equations play vital roles in the modeling of physical systems ranging from gas dynamics, plasmas, semiconductor devices to biological and social sciences. The study of kinetic equations brings out rich mathematics and calls for special techniques from analysis, numerical analysis and scientific computing. The aim of this conference is to bring together junior and senior experts in all aspects of kinetic equations and provide the state of the art and most recent developments in the field.
