Asymptotic Preserving and Multiscale Methods for Kinetic and Hyperbolic Problems

May 4 - 8, 2015

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Visitor Guide




Many scientific problems involve fluids in transitional regimes. Such problems are typically characterized by the occurrence of one or more  small parameters and show a nonuniform behavior as the parameters approach zero. The type of the limiting macroscopic equations
is different in nature from that  for finite values of the parameters. Very often when the parameter varies in different order of magnitude
one has to couple a microscopic and a macroscopic models which is often difficult. For kinetic and hyperbolic  equations that  may exhibit different asymptotic regimes, 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.


This workshop aims to bring together researchers with different expertise in AP and multiscale schemes for kinetic and hyperbolic problems. Our goal is to assess the current state-of-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.
