Hyperbolic and kinetic equations arise in a large variety of industrial problems. For this reason, the CEMRACS summer research center held at CIRM in Luminy in 2003 was devoted to this topic. During a six-week period, junior and senior researchers worked full time on several projects proposed by industry and academia. Most of this work was completed later on, and the results are now reported in the present book.

The articles address modelling issues as well as the development and comparisons of numerical methods in different situations. The applications include multi-phase flows, plasma physics, quantum particle dynamics, radiative transfer, sprays and aeroacoustics.

The text is aimed at researchers and engineers interested in modelling and numerical simulation of hyperbolic and kinetic problems arising from applications.
