The ultimate goal of this network is the development, analysis and computation of novel kinetic descriptions with particular focus on

- Quantum dynamics with applications to chemistry;
- Network dynamics with applications to social sciences;
- Kinetic models of biological processes.

KI-Net is offering a unique platform to carry out these objectives by fostering cross-fertilization between mathematics and other scientific disciplines. It is centered around three hubs: the Center for Scientific Computation & Math Modeling (CSCAMM) in the University of Maryland, the Institute for Computational and Engineering Science (ICES) at UT Austin, and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Eitan Tadmor has been elected Chair of the SIAM activity program on the Analysis of Partial Differential Equations.

Congratulations to Jacob Bedrossian (CSCAMM/Mathematics) who has been awarded a prestigious 5-year Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from NSF.
