Wednesday 21st August 2019 - 15:00 to 16:00
INI Seminar Room 2
The Vlasov-Poisson Fokker-Planck  system  is  a kinetic description of  Brownian motion for a large number of particles in a surrounding bath. In solving   this system,  the contact structure is investigated. This motivates the study for the  contact system and the construction of corresponding numerical methods. This talk will introduce the contact system and the construction of numerical methods based on generating function and variational principle.
