The aim of this workshop is to bring together the many disparate groups of researchers who work on coagulation-fragmentation (CF) equations and related processes. It will be of particular interest to:
  • Mathematicians, such as Applied Analysts who study mathematical aspects of deterministic systems of CF equations, Numerical Analysts working towards resolving the computational challenges that CF equations present, and Probabilists who investigate the structure of stochastic models of CF processes;
  • Physicists and Chemists who derive CF equations in areas of the natural sciences, such as polymerisation processes, formation of galaxies, aerosol science, colloidal science, phase transitions and phase separation in alloys;
  • Industrialists and Engineers who apply processes involving coagulation and fragmentation in the design of new materials and of efficient manufacturing techniques.
A key feature will be the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners involved with CF equations. This should promote a greater awareness of existing results and outstanding problems in this area and provide mathematicians with new mathematical challenges and experimental scientists, engineers and industrialists with new analytical, modelling, and numerical techniques.
