Topics in the Spatially Homogeneous Boltzmann Equation

  • Lecturer: Daniel Heydecker
  • Date: Wednesdays, 14:00-15:30
  • Room: MPI MiS A3 01
  • Keywords: Boltzmann Equation, Kinetic Theory, Mean-Field Limits
  • Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of probability and analysis


The Boltzmann Equation is a differential-integral equation, describing how the distribution of velocities in a dilute gas evolves over time. This minicourse will focus on the spatially homogeneous case, where the theory has connections to many different areas of analysis and probability, and we will discuss aspects of the well-posedness theory, the derivation from a stochastic many-particle system, and relaxation to equilibrium.
