Many kinetic transport equations have multiple scales that lead to different macroscopic limits. Numerical simulations of there problems become challenging when there are small length scales that are very expensive to resolve. In this talk we will survey numerical methods that can overcome the stiffness introduced by the small scales, yet allow the capturing the macroscopic behavior.
