Axel Klar (TU Darmstadt)
The talk will give an outline of different methods to treat radiative heat transfer equations in diffusive regimes. Different ways of proceeding like asymptotic preserving methods for the kinetic equation, domain decomposition methods for kinetic and diffusive equation and the development of improved diffusion approximations are considered. Applications to glass manufacturing problems will be discussed showing a typical example.
