\displaystyle \begin{aligned} \partial_tf + 2 \nu |k|^2 f \ = \ Q[f] \end{aligned}

Lat week, I gaveĀ a graduate student seminar, whose purpose is to introduce to first and second year graduate students (at Penn State) an active and beautiful topics of research, and suggest a few possible ideas for students’ presentation later in the semester. Here are slides of my talk, which focuses on Kinetic Theory of Gases, a topics that I will teach as a graduate topics course, next fall (2017).
