MultI-scale Numerical Geometric Schemes

Team presentation

The research group MINGuS focuses on the mathematical and numerical analysis of partial differential equations (possibly stochastic), originating from plasma physics and nanotechnologies, with emphasis on multiscale phenomena either of highly-oscillatory, dissipative or stochastic types. These equations can be encountered in applications to rarefied gas dynamics, radiative transfer or plasma physics, for which the multiscale character is modelled by a scale physical parameter.
