Kinetic Equations: from Theory to Applications

動力學方程:理論及應用 密集系列演講


Study of microscopic phenomena is important for modern science and technology.
Kinetic equations are used in several high tech applications ranging from entry in the
atmosphere of space shuttle to design of chips which are so small that the electric
current does not thermalize in the process. They are also used in the design of ionic
motors for satellite and so on. They provide a natural link between different scientific
point of view and different mathematical approaches ranging from hamiltonian
mechanic (classic or quantized) to evolution of large scale structures in turbulence
within the classical equations such as Boltzmann, Euler and Navier Stokes. This
School on Kinetic equations will be a good opportunity to provide training ranging
from theoretical math to genuine applications.
