On the Modeling of Transport Phenomena in Continuum and Statistical Mechanics

  • Paolo Podio-Guidugli
Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics book series (PROMS, volume 276)


This writing is a short account of a talk I gave in Tbilisi (Georgia) on December 8, 2017, within the framework of AMINSE2017; it is based on material to be found in a recent paper of mine with the same title (Podio-Guidugli in Discret Contin Dyn Syst Ser S 10(6), 2017, [1]) and includes the statements of insofar unpublished results of mine to be prooved elsewhere.


Transport phenomena Convection Diffusion Continuous balance laws Discrete balance laws 



I gratefully acknowledge the support of the organizers, who made my participation into AMINSE2017 possible.
