\n\nNumerical methods for Boltzmann equation and related models\nGiacomo D
imarco\nFull Professor\nDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science\,\nU
niversity of Ferrara\, Italy\n\n \n\nAbstract: \n\nIn this talk\, we will p
rovide an overview of the state-of-the-art numerical methods for kinetic pa
rtial differential equations\, with a particular focus on the widely studie
d Boltzmann equation. Kinetic models represent a powerful mathematical tool
commonly used to describe the behaviors and the interactions of large part
icle systems. These equations are fundamental across various fields\, inclu
ding mathematics\, physics\, engineering and chemistry\, while also finding
broad applications in biology\, medicine\, economics and social sciences.
Due to the high number of dimensions and their intrinsic physical propertie
s\, the construction of numerical methods represents a challenge and requir
es a careful balance between accuracy and computational complexity. Throug
hout the talk\, we will discuss the derivation of fast algorithms\, the con
cept of asymptotic preserving methods\, Monte Carlo techniques\, and the de
velopment of hybrid schemes.\n\n \n\nBio:\n\nGiacomo Dimarco is Full Profes
sor of Applied Mathematics since December 2021\, Head of the Department of
Mathematics and Computer Science and Director of the Center for Modeling an
d Scientific Computing of the University of Ferrara\, Italy. He obtained hi
s M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Pisa in 2004 and com
pleted his PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Ferrara in 2008.
From 2009 to 2013\, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Tou
louse III in France\, before returning to Italy\, where he held the positio
n of Associate Professor in Numerical Analysis from 2013 to 2021. He is Ass
ociate Editor for the Journal of Computational Physics and for Networks and
Heterogeneous Media. His research interests encompass applied and computat
ional mathematics\, including kinetic equations\, computational fluid dynam
ics\, plasma physics\, multiscale modeling\, numerical methods for partial
differential equations\, collective dynamics\, Monte Carlo methods\, contro
l\, and uncertainty quantification.
