Foreword: This book contains a collection of 8 papers dealing with the kinetic theory of gases. Computational aspects are discussed as well as the applications and modelisation or macroscopic properties related to the kinetic structures. The underlying models are those of Vlasov-Poisson or Boltzmann equations as used in the modern sciences (plasma physics, semiconductors, hypersonic flows, etc.).
The idea of collecting these papers came out after a one-day workshop for physicists and mathematicians in Orleans. Although the book contains a larger number of papers, its main body is that of the conference.
