ABSTRACT

Many kinetic equations arising from physical, biological or social sciences often contain  one or more small parameters that lead to various asymptotic behavior governed by hydrodynamic equations. When the parameter varies in different order of magnitude one has to couple a microscopic and a macroscopic models which is often difficult.  it is then desirable to develop robust numerical schemes that can work uniformly with respect to the regime considered,  in the spirit of asymptotic-preserving (AP) or multiscale schemes.

GOALS

This workshop aims to bring together researchers with different expertise in  multiscale computations for kinetic and related  problems. Our goal is to assess the current state-of-the-arts of these methods in various applications, and to foster  new collaborations. A particular focus will be made on the theoretical foundations and new and  practical applications of these techniques. Lots of time will be available for group discussions.

REGISTRATION REQUESTED

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. Applicants who are also interested in making a poster presentation can specify their preference to do so in the “comments section” of their application. Due to space limitations, these requests are subject to approval by the organizers.
