This selection of 8 papers discusses aEquations of Kinetic Physicsa with emphasis on analysis, modelling and computing. The first 3 papers are on numerical methods for Vlasov-Poisson and Vlasov-Maxwell Equations a Comparison between Particles and Eulerian Methods (G Manfredi and M R Feix), Computing BGK Instability with Eulerian Codes (M R Feix, Pertrand a A Ghieco) and Coupling Particles and Eulerian Methods (S Mas-Gallic and P A Raviart) a Followed by a survey of kinetic and macroscopic models for semiconductor devices a Boltzmann Equation, Drift-Diffusion Models (F Poupaud). In addition, there are 2 papers on the modelling and analysis of singular perturbation problems arising in plasma physics a Derivation of the Child-Lagmuyr Emission Laws (P Degond) and Euler Models with Small Pressure Terms (F Bouchut) a followed by two papers on the analysis and numerical analysis of the Boltzmann equations a Symmetry Properties in the Polynomials Arising in Chapman-Enskog Expansion (L Desvillettes and F Golse) and A General Introduction to Computing the Boltzmann Equations with Random Particle Methods (B Perthame).Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics IV. Academic Press, New York-San Francisco- London, 4th edition, 1987. ... solutions of a nonlinear system arising in semiconductor theory. ... Analysis and Simulation of Semiconductor Devices.
