Technology is increasingly advancing into regimes in which particle meanfree paths are comparable to the length scales of interest, and where traditional transport models therefore break down. For example, driftdiffusion models of electronhole transport break down for submicron semiconductors because the scale of interest are very small, while NavierStokes approximations of fluid dynamics break down in outer planetary atmospheres or space shuttle reentry problem, where the mean free path are very large.
Such situations can be described by particle simulations but the cost of carrying these out is much greater than that of small meanfree path models, often becoming prohibitive when one is near small meanfree path regimes. This makes the simulation of problems in which transition regimes coexist with small meanfree path regimes particularly difficult. This difficulty is compounded when the geometry is complicated or even random.
This workshop will explore a variety of advanced models such
us moment based models, ChapmannEnskog and Burnett type expansions,
or models derived from asymptotic limits. These models, both
deterministic and stochastic in origin, will be studied in the
context of the simulation of highaltitude flight, charged particles
in natural plasmas such us outer planetary atmospheres, manmade
plasmas (electric propulsion for satellites), electron and holes
in semiconductor devices, and radiation through inhomogeneous
media. Hybrid numerical schemes that properly match transition
with small meanfree path regimes will also be examined.
