The joint research project of Prof. Carrillo de la Plata and Prof. Thalhammer is devoted to the development and theoretical investigation of reliable and efficient numerical integration methods for evolution equations arising in kinetic theory. The scope of relevant applications from plasma physics in particular includes the Vlasov-Maxwell-Landau system capturing both, conservation and dissipation.
During the visit of Prof. Carrillo de la Plata, the current approach was analysed and advanced in several respects. Moreover, relevant extensions to be considered in the future were discussed. His guest lecture held on May 30, 2022, included a variety of applications and illustrative examples. It was very well received and attracted numerous Mathematics and Physics students.
While in Innsbruck, Mr. Carrillo de la Plata also found time to explore the city and took a trip up to the "Nordkette" to enjoy the stunning view!
