Hilbert sixth problem
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
Hilbert Sixth Problem of Axiomatization of Physics is a problem of general nature and not of specific problem. We will concentrate on the kinetic theory; the relations between the Newtonian particle systems, the Boltzmann equation and the fluid dynamics. This is a rich area of applied mathematics and mathematical physics. We will illustrate the richness with some examples, survey recent progresses and raise open research directions.
