Abstract:
This special session is concerned with innovative models and numerical methods having roots in kinetic theory. One of the key aspect of this theory is its flexibility in the description of phenomena at different scales, leading to mean-field equations and hydrodynamic equations as well. Nowadays countless applications, ranging from plasma physics to socio-economic and biological models, utilize this theoretical framework, posing new and exciting questions from both the analytical and the numerical point view.
