Microscopic Origins of Dissipation and Noise

October 31 - November 03, 2007
Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

While dissipative evolution equations, both with and without randomness, have been widely studied in the mathematics community, it is much less understood how they arise from accepted physical models on a finer scale. We think, however, that such information is crucial for determining properties of the models on a coarser scale, and that this has strong implications, particularly for nonequilibrium problems and on how different systems can be coupled, thus creating interesting challenges for pure and applied mathematics alike.
