Presentation [back to top]

Since the celebrated works of Maxwell and Boltzmann on ideal gases, the kinetic modeling has been spreading over various fields in science and technology. It is currently applied to various equilibrium/non-equilibrium phenomena, providing the hierarchical understanding of the fluid-dynamical description.

The present workshop is organized on the occasion of Professor Yoshio Sone’s 80th and Professor Kazuo Aoki’s 65th birthday. The workshop aims at providing an opportunity for researchers who had friendship and collaboration with them and who have been influenced by them to exchange current results on kinetic theory and fluid dynamics. Young researchers who are interested or have already been involved in the related fields are encouraged to attend the workshop as well.
