Séminaire OrléansModelling complexity with kinetic mixtures
Thursday 09 November 2017 14:00 - Orléans - Salle de Séminaire
I will describe how to set up a model at the kinetic level for a mixture of two fluids. This entails choices on the possible interactions between different types of particles. I will start considering the case of two gases, in the BGK approximation. Next the idea will be extended to mixtures between different types of particles, in the modelling of traffic flow. I will also describe the problems that arise when the resulting models are discretised, for numerical integration.
