The Mathematical Theory of Particle Suspensions

This workshop of three days aims at gathering a group of mathematicians and physicists who are working in the study of particle suspensions.

During the recent years, there has been an increasing interest concerning the effective behaviour of small particle systems moving in Stokes or Navier-Stokes flows.This includes the rigorous derivation of effective equations, problems of pattern formation and instabilities, dependence of the behaviour on the shape of the particles, as well as stochastic effects in the dynamics.

From the mathematical point of view, tools of deterministic and stochastic homogenization, as well as methods of kinetic theory have shown to be useful in the analysis of these problems.
