On Wednesday 7th March 2018, the meeting will be held in the Salle du conseil, at Centre Universitaire des Saints-Pères (CUSP), 45 rue des Saints-Pères, Paris 6th arrondissement.
On Thursday 8th March and Friday 9th March 2018, the meeting will be held at Amphitheater Turing, Building Sophie Germain, 8 Place Aurélie Nemours, Paris 13th arrondissement.
Here is a map of the subway of Paris.
The building CUSP of Université Paris Descartes can be easily reached by foot from subway stations Saint-Germain des Prés or Sèvres Babylone. Access to the Salle du Conseil is detailed here: http://map5.mi.parisdescartes.fr/en/access/
The building Sophie Germain of Université Paris Diderot can be easily reached by foot from subway/RER station Bibliothèque François Mitterand. A map of the university is avalable here. The building Sophie Germain is number 9 on this map. The amphitheater Turing can be directly reached from the ground floor of the building Sophie Germain (no need to take the elevator or the stairway).
Registration to the workshop is free but mandatory. It can be done by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Kinetic theory enables to model many physical situations, such as rarefied gases, semiconductors, or plasmas. Some of the most famous equations appearing in this theory are the Boltzmann equation and the Vlasov equation. These equations are naturally linked to the main models of fluid mechanics, that is the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. The most important link appears in the Hilbert expansion and Chapman-Enskog asymptotics, where the Knudsen number is assumed to tend to 0, and the solutions of the macroscopic equations appear as limits or expansions of the solutions of the Boltzmann equation. Some other links appear for example in the theory of sprays, where fluid equations are coupled to kinetic equations.
The workshop will be devoted to to the presentation of some of the latest improvements in the mathematical theory of kinetic and fluid equations. Modeling and numerical issues will be discussed, as well as theoretical developments arising from the theory of PDEs and nonlinear analysis.
