Summer School "Trails in kinetic theory: foundational aspects and numerical methods"

Dates: May 20-24, 2019
Venue: HIM lecture hall, Poppelsdorfer Allee 45, Bonn
Organizers: Giacomo Albi (Verona), Sara Merino-Aceituno (Vienna), Alessia Nota (Bonn), Mattia Zanella (Torino)

The School "Trails in kinetic theory: foundational aspects and numerical methods" will be devoted to foundational aspects of kinetic theory, to its emerging applications in collective phenomena and to the related numerical methods in optimal control and uncertainty quantification. The purpose of this initiative is to enlarge knowledge and effective potentials of kinetic theory on the broad scientific community.
