A five-year $5M NSF collaborative proposal for a new Research Network in Math Sciences (RNMS) was awarded Feb. 16, 2012. Research Networks is a recent new mode of operation for the Math Sciences in the NSF. The ultimate goal of the KI-net is the development, analysis and computation of novel kinetic descriptions with various applications in quantum dynamics with applications to chemistry, to network dynamics with applications to social sciences, and to kinetic models of biological processes. It will be centered around three
hubs: CSCAMM serving as the leading hub (PI:
CSCAMM/Math/IPST) together with ICES at UT Austin hub (PI: I.
Gamba), and the Department of Mathematics at the UW-Madison hub
(PI: S. Jin). At the initial stage, they will inter-connect 12
through a series of edges, involving 25 core participants.
