Scientific Overview

This workshop will focus on computational modeling of kinetic transport
models that arise in various kinetic transport problems, in particular
Boltzmann kinetic or transport equations with applications in
astrophysics, planetary atmospheres, medical imaging,
semiconductor-devices, and plasmas. The numerical methods to be
discussed include direct simulation Monte-Carlo methods, particle
methods, moment closure techniques, deterministic finite difference,
finite element, and spectral methods. Hybridization of computational
schemes linking multi-scale and multi-physics will also be addressed.

Examples are microscopic to mesoscopic linking of quantum systems to
semiclassical models for semiconductor device simulations, coupled
kinetic and fluid models for hypersonic vehicles, and coupling of Monte
Carlo and deterministic numerical methods.

We will bring in experts from academia, industry and national labs. The
aim of this workshop is to examine the current states of computational
transport, and to foster interdisciplinary interactions among
researchers from mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, and
related disciplines.
