Collective behavior of particles in fluids
Paris, December 14-17, 2020
Welcome to the webpage for the workshop "Collective behavior of particles in fluids" to be held in Paris at Institut Henri Poincaré from December 14 to 17, 2020.

This workshop is devoted to the rigorous analysis of the collective behavior of suspended particles in viscous fluids. Such multiphysics systems and their complex dynamics have indeed aroused an increasing interest in different areas of mathematics in recent years. This workshop aims to bring together different points of view, and provide an overview of important challenges, ideas, and techniques, through a number of panoramic lectures. Speakers include: Leonid Berlyand, Muriel Boulakia, David Gérard-Varet, Antoine Gloria, François Golse, Christiane Helzel, Matthieu Hillairet, Richard Höfer, Mads Kyed, Aline Lefebvre-Lepot, Amina Mecherbet, and Sylvia Serfaty.

The workshop also aims to foster exchanges between mathematicians and physicists working in related areas. For that purpose, two mini-courses will be given by physicists: one by Elisabeth Guazzelli on sedimentation, and the other by Pierre Gaspard on active fluids. The workshop will also include a remote lecture by Salvatore Torquato on hyperuniform states of matter.

The workshop is organized by Mitia Duerinckx with financial support from the CNRS-Momentum program. Note that we are able to provide travel support and accommodation for a number of participants.

Deadline for registrations: October 9th, 2020
