Kinetic theory is probably one of the most efficient and important theories allowing to bridge the microscopic and macroscopic descriptions of a variety of dynamical phenomena in many fields of science, technology, and more generally, in virtually all domains of knowledge. Originally rooted in the theory of rarefied gases since the seminal works of Boltzmann and Maxwell in the 19th century, followed by landmarks established by Hilbert, Chapman and Enskog, Carleman, Grad, and more recent mathematicians, kinetic theory has expanded to many new areas of applications, ranging from physics to economics and social sciences including especially modern fields such as biology, epidemiology, and genetics.
