Mesoscopic Modelings and Simulations of Hydrodynamic Phenomena (Part I of II)

Macroscopic phenomena are often described as scaling limits of mesoscopic models. Often the macroscopic equations are ill-behaved, and the mesoscopic models are used as both theoretic and numerical tools in understanding the macroscopic behavior. In this minisymposim the speakers will discuss the latest developments in the modeling, analysis and computation of the hydrodynamic phenomena using mesoscopic equations, with applications in kinetic approximations for fluids, kinetic and relaxation schemes for conservation laws, modelings and simulations of semiconductor devices, and statistical descriptions of phase transitions.
