Multiscale modeling and simulation of crowded transport in the life and social sciences
'Lane formation by side stepping' – first results on the existence of global-in-time solutions
for a minimal PDE model for pedestriand dynamics with a perturbed gradient flow structure.
Furthermore we provide analytical insights into the formation of directional lanes and analyse
the behavior of the system with respect to these parameters.
'On a Boltzmann mean field model for knowledge growth'. In this paper we give first analytic
results on a novel mathematical model coupling mean-field game theory with Boltzmann type
Sabine Hittmeir is awarded with a Hertha Firnberg scholarship for a project entitled 'Multiscale
asymptotics and analysis for atmospheric flow models with moisture'.

and life-sciences' at the ICIAM 2015 in Beijing.
Organization of a workshop on 'Gradient Flows: From Theory to Applications' together with

Organization of a mini-workshop on 'Kinetic and mean field models in finance', together
with R. Cont at the Newton Institute in Cambridge, UK.
'On a Boltzmann price formation model'. Presentation and analysis of Boltzmann-type model
to describe price dynamics, which gives novel insights into the connection of Boltzmann
type equations and mean-field game models.
