## Numerical methods for linear half-space kinetic equations

##### Abstract:

Understanding the coupling of physical models at different scales is important and challenging. In this talk, we focus on the issue of kinetic-fluid coupling, in particular, the half-space problems for kinetic equations coming from the boundary layer. We will present some recent progress in algorithm development and analysis for the linear half-space kinetic equations, and its application in coupling of neutron transport equations with diffusion equations.
