On kinetic models for the collective self-organization of agents

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Konstantina Trivisa, University of Maryland
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Tue, Nov 12 2013, 3:10PM

A class of kinetic models is presented for the collective self-organization of agents. Results on the global existence of weak solutions as well as a hydrodynamic limit will be discussed. The main tools employed in the analysis are the velocity averaging lemma and the relative entropy method. This is joint work with T. Karper and A. Mellet.
