BCAM hosts the workshop “Kinetic Equation, Mathematical Physics and Probability”

The Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics – BCAM hosted the workshop “Kinetic Equation, Mathematical Physics and Probability” in Bilbao from 17 to 21 June. The event featured 2 mini-courses, 11 talks by senior speakers, and 10 talks by junior speakers.

Originally used to describe gas dynamics, kinetic equations are now employed in many fields of science (physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, epidemiology, etc.). Their study spans a wide mathematical palette, from modelling to theoretical study through numerical analysis. One of the main challenges is the study of the dynamic properties of these equations, particularly in the long term. Obtaining precise quantitative information is also a current challenge in theory. Recently, significant progress has been made in studying these models using tools from many areas of mathematics: PDE, Mathematical Physics, and Probability.

This conference aimed to bring together global experts on these themes to take stock of the latest advances and bring new issues to light. It also served as the closing conference of the ANR QuAMProcs project (https://quamprocs.math.u-bordeaux.fr/projet/) of the University of Bordeaux.

The conference was dedicated to the memory of researcher Stefan Adams.

The workshop was partially funded by the TRANSMATH-LTC project of the Euskampus Foundation and the BILBOMATH 2024 project of the Bilbao City Council.
