A wide range of phenomena in science and technology may be described by nonlinear partial differential equations, characterizing systems of conservation laws with source terms.

Well known examples are hyperbolic systems with source terms, kinetic equations and convection-reaction-diffusion equations. This class of equations fits several fundamental physical laws and plays a crucial role in applications ranging from plasma physics and geophysics to semiconductor design and granular gases. Recent studies employ the aforementioned theoretical background in order to describe the collective motion of a large number of particles such as: pedestrian and traffic flows, swarming dynamics, opinion control, diffusion of tumor cells and the cardiovascular system.

The goal of the present Workshop is to present some recent numerical results for these problems with a particular focus on multiple scales.

Wednesday April the 18th the NumAsp conference will host the Giornata INdAM Ferrara April 18, 2018: Recent advances in multiscale modeling and numerics for hyperbolic and kinetic equations. During this special day, we will honor the 60th birthday of Professor Giovanni Russo (University of Catania, Italy).
