Outline of the conference


 The  conference  "Kinetic equations: direct and inverse problems" will be held  in Mantova, Italy, from  May  15 to  May  18, 2008.
 The aim of the conference is to provide the opportunity to present recent progress and obtain information about new directions for leading researchers working on mathematical aspects of fluid and plasma in a broad sense. In particular, the relation between kinetic and fluid models in various applications such as gas dynamics, semiconductors, granular flows will be one of the main subjects.
 Theory and application of the following subjects will be included in the scope of the workshop:


  • the Boltzmann equation
  • the Vlasov-Poisson system
  • the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations
  • kinetic and fluid models for various flow phenomena (e.g., rarefied gas flows, granular flows and semiconductors)
  • probabilistic methods
  • asymptotic and numerical methods
  • biological applications

The lectures in this conference are only by invitation.
