Discrete Kinetic Models for Dynamical Phase Transitions

R. Natalini and S. Tang

Abstract: In this paper, we shall describe discrete kinetic models, which serve as a novel and systematical way to regularize a mixed-type system describing the dynamical phase transitions. In the limit of zero mean free path, it is expected to provide abundant reasonable kinetic relations and nucleation criteria for constructing Riemann solvers. Some particular models have been investigated theoretically and numerically.
