The 60th Midwest PDE Seminar

Title: Problems in Kinetic Theory
Speaker: Professor Tai-Ping Liu
Speaker Info: Academia Sinica, Taipei and Stanford University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

There have been very substantial progresses in the study of Boltzmann equation, particularly by the Kyoto School on quantitative theory near equilibrium and by the French School on weak solutions. In spite of these, many, if not most, of the issues concerning the physical phenomena remain beyond mathematical analysis. These include the relationship between Boltzmann equation and the fluid equations on the one hand, and with the particle systems on the other. It is interesting to study the boundary effects, as modeled by the Boltzmann equation versus the fluid equations. We plan to survey these issues. We will also present the recent attempts on some of these issues and point out possible future research directions.
