This workshop aims to explore the state of the art in the theory, analysis, and numerical simulation of plasma equations and those related to nuclear fusion, specifically relating to kinetic theory. We wish to encompass the Vlasov-Poisson equation, the Landau equation, the Maxwell equations, and derivative models.

The workshop will focus on theoretical advances on these equations, on their numerical simulation, and on their applications. We aim to bring together researchers from several fields, both based at mathematics departments, and institutes that specialise in plasma. In that way, we hope to establish connections between the theoreticians and the practitioners to advance in the efficient computation of kinetic equations in plasma fusion.
