This book presents the proceedings of the international conference Particle Systems and Partial Differential Equations V, which was held at the University of Minho, Braga, Portugal, from the 28th to 30th November 2016. It includes papers on mathematical problems motivated by various applications in physics, engineering, economics, chemistry, and biology.
The purpose of the conference was to bring together prominent researchers working in the fields of particle systems and partial differential equations, providing a venue for them to present their latest findings and discuss their areas of expertise. Further, it was intended to introduce a vast and varied public, including young researchers, to the subject of interacting particle systems, its underlying motivation, and its relation to partial differential equations.
The book appeals to probabilists, analysts and also to mathematicians in general whose work focuses on topics in mathematical physics, stochastic processes and differential equations, as well as to physicists working in the area of statistical mechanics and kinetic theory.
