This workshop was dedicated to the presentation of recent results in the field of the mathematical study of kinetic theory and its naturalextensions (statistical physics and fluid mechanics). The main models are the Vlasov(-Poisson) equation and the Boltzmann equation, which are obtainedas limits of many-body equations (Newton’s equations in the classical case and Schrödinger’s equation in the quantum case) thanks to the mean-field and Boltzmann-Grad scalings. Numerical aspects and applications to mechanics, physics, engineering and biology were also discussed.
