The interplay between deterministic and stochastic modeling of transport phenomena is a broad subject with an increasing interest fueled by applications which arise in physical, biological and social systems. Among recent analytical developments we mention development of new tools from micro-local to non-local in deterministic transport and their interplay in UQ, random media and averaging phenomena in stochastic transport. These analytical developments, complemented by numerical simulations of transport processes are found in modern applications, from kinetic theory and collective dynamics to financial math, ``games" and fluid mechanics. These will be the focus of this workshop.


This workshop will bring together researchers with diverse expertise on deterministic and stochastic methods for transport processes.  Our goal is to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion  between mathematicians and statistical and biological physicists.  We will particularly focus on similarities and differences arising in different fields using stochastic and deterministic modeling. The aim is to identify common theoretical and computational challenges and discuss suitable techniques that   can be successfully applied in different application fields.
