Recent Advances on Particle Systems in Kinetic Theory -
A celebration of Sasha Bobylev's impact in the mathematics and computations of kinetic theory
May 8-12, 2017,
Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES)
Interacting particle transport or kinetic collisional modeling was introduced in the last quarter of the nineteenth century by L. Boltzmann and J.C. Maxwell, independently, giving birth to the area of mathematical Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics. These types of evolution models concern a class of non-local, and non-linear integro-differential problems whose rigorous mathematical and numerical approximating treatments are at the center of current scientific developments.
Their applications range from rarefied elastic and inelastic gas dynamics including very low temperature regimes for quantum interactions, collisional plasmas and electron transport in nanostructures, to self-organized or social interacting dynamics.
This event is dedicated to A.V. Bobylev on his seventieth birthday.
