Title: From a Mesoscopic to Macroscopic Description of Fluid-Particle Interaction

Abstract: The focus of this talk will be on the asymptotic analysis of the mesoscopic description of a fluid-particle interaction model to a macroscopic model. This talk is based on the paper of Carrillo and Goudon [1]. Some information may also be pulled from the papers of Mellet and Vasseur [2, 3].
