Section: Overall Objectives
The MEPHYSTO-POST team is a follow up of the MEPHYSTO project-team. Since the former scientific leader, Antoine Gloria, left in September 2017, the scientific objectives have been modified.
The MEPHYSTO-POST team gathers mathematicians from different communities with the same motivation: to provide a better understanding of dynamical phenomena involving particles. These phenomena are described by fundamental models arising from several fields of physics. We focus on model derivation, study of stationary states and asymptotic behaviors, as well as links between different levels of description (e.g. micro and macro models) and numerical methods to simulate such models. Applications include nonlinear optics, thermodynamics and ferromagnetism.
