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

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. 

During the conference, we will honor the 60th birthday of Dr. Irene M. Gamba, who has made fundamental contributions to the modeling, analysis and numerical simulations of kinetic equations.
