Young Researchers Workshop: Stochastic and deterministic methods in kinetic theory

Nov 28 - Dec 2, 2016

Visitor Guide




The kinetic theory naturally brings together deterministic and stochastic physical models, from the early days of modeling of gas molecules, to the mesoscopic description of collective behavior, and to the more recent uncertainty quantification in kinetic models. On the numerical aspects, while stochastic numerical methods like direct simulation Monte Carlo methods have been very popular, recent years also observe huge development in deterministic methods for kinetic theory and stochastic systems. This workshop will focus on the fascinating interplay between analysis of kinetic theory, deterministic and stochastic modeling, multiscale analysis and methods, with applications in physical, biological and social sciences.


The goal of this conference is to bring together young, energetic researchers working in kinetic theory and related fields to exchange ideas and facilitate collaborations. The focus will include stochastic modeling in kinetic theory, multiscale modelling, quantum dynamics, and stochastic and deterministic numerical methods. 


Invited participants can RSVP and provide the additional requested information about their stay, including the title and abstract of proposed talks, here.

Applications for participation can be made through the Online Application. Due to space limitations, these requests are subject to approval by the organizers.
