Quantum and Kinetic Transport: Analysis, Computations, and New Applications Workshop I: Computational Kinetic Transport and Hybrid Methods March 30 - April 3, 2009 Los Angeles, CA http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/programs/ktws1/ Pierre Degond (UniversitÃ© de Toulouse III (Paul Sabatier)) Bjorn Engquist (University of Texas at Austin) Frank Graziani (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) Shi Jin (University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Mathematics) Caroline Lasser (Freie UniversitÃ¤t Berlin) Anna-Karin Tornberg (Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), NADA) Back to Top 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.

If you don't intend to do this, you may simply register. We urge you to apply as early as possible. Applications received by February 16, 2009 will receive fullest consideration. Letters of reference may be sent to the address or email address below. Successful applicants will be notified as soon as funding decisions are made. We have funding especially to support the attendance of recent PhD's, graduate students, and researchers in the early stages of their career; however, mathematicians and scientists at all levels who are interested in this area are encouraged to apply for funding. Encouraging the careers of women and minority mathematicians and scientists is an important component of IPAM's mission and we welcome their applications.
