Topics in Kinetic Theory

Friday, 25 November, 2022 - 15:00 - 17:15
Seminar Type: 
Kinetic Mini-Course
Speaker Name: 
Prof. Shigeru TAKATA
Kyoto University

In this short course, I will introduce our works on the singular behaviour of a rarefied gas on a convex body and on kinetic modeling for phase transition. The first topic will be discussed through a study of a rarefied gas flow around a rotating sphere and the second topic will be discussed through a minimum kinetic model for the phase transition. For the second topic, the fluid-dynamic limit that leads to the Cahn-Hilliard type equation will be discussed as well.
