Description

This selection of 8 papers discusses "Equations of Kinetic Physics" with emphasis on analysis, modelling and computing. The first 3 papers are on numerical methods for Vlasov-Poisson and Vlasov-Maxwell Equations - Comparison between Particles and Eulerian Methods (G Manfredi and M R Feix), Computing BGK Instability with Eulerian Codes (M R Feix, Pertrand & A Ghieco) and Coupling Particles and Eulerian Methods (S Mas-Gallic and P A Raviart) - Followed by a survey of kinetic and macroscopic models for semiconductor devices - Boltzmann Equation, Drift-Diffusion Models (F Poupaud). In addition, there are 2 papers on the modelling and analysis of singular perturbation problems arising in plasma physics - Derivation of the Child-Lagmuyr Emission Laws (P Degond) and Euler Models with Small Pressure Terms (F Bouchut) - followed by two papers on the analysis and numerical analysis of the Boltzmann equations - Symmetry Properties in the Polynomials Arising in Chapman-Enskog Expansion (L Desvillettes and F Golse) and A General Introduction to Computing the Boltzmann Equations with Random Particle Methods (B Perthame).
