Together with C. Mouhot and L. Silvestre, we just uploaded on hal and arxiv a new preprint entitled Gaussian lower bounds for the Boltzmann equation. Abstract: The study of positivity of solutions to the Boltzmann equation goes back to Carleman (1933), and the initial argument of Carleman was developed byPulvirenti-Wennberg (1997), the second author and … Lire la suite

## New preprint: The Schauder estimate for kinetic integral equations

A new preprint entitled « The Schauder estimate for kinetic integral equations » is available on arxiv and hal. This is a joint work with Luis Silvestre. Abstract: We establish interior Schauder estimates for kinetic equations with integro-differential diffusion. We study equations of the form ft+v⋅∇xf=Lvf+c, where Lv is an integro-differential diffusion operator of order 2s acting … Lire la suite

## Second announcement: Non Standard Diffusions in Fluids, Kinetic Equations and Probability

A conference entitled Non stantard diffusions in fluids, kinetic equations and probability will take place in Marseille at the Centre international de rencontres mathématiques. This conference aims at bringing together experts from different subjects in mathematics that share the common theme of nonlocal diffusions, building bridges between these communities and fostering collaboration. From the probabilistic … Lire la suite

## New preprint: Decay estimates for large velocities in the Boltzmann equation without cut-off

C. Mouhot, L. Silvestre and myself just uploaded on HAL and arXiv a new preprint entitled Decay estimates for large velocities in the Boltzmann equation without cut-off. Abstract: We establish pointwise large velocity decay rates for the solution of the inhomogeneous Boltzmann equation without cutoff, under the assumption that three hydrodynamic quantities (mass, energy, entropy … Lire la suite

## New preprint: A toy model in kinetic theory

I just uploaded on HAL and arxiv a new preprint entitled « A nonlinear toy model from kinetic theory », in collaboration with C. Mouhot (Cambridge). Abstract: This note is concerned with the study of a toy nonlinear model in kinetic theory. It consists in a non-linear kinetic Fokker-Planck equation whose diffusion in the velocity variable is … Lire la suite
