The idea of putting together a special issue of KRM in honor of
Giuseppe Toscani's 60$th$ birthday was received with great enthusiasm
by the "kinetic" community and by Giuseppe's scientific colleagues
and friends from other mathematical communities. There is a common feeling
throughout that we have learned a great deal from the ideas, the
methodologies and the scientific conclusions of Giuseppe Toscani's work.
The papers related to Toscani's research in this special issue are
authored by collaborators, friends and students of Giuseppe. The
topics include classical and non classical applications of kinetic
theory, entropy-entropy dissipation methods, asymptotic techniques
and numerical simulations.The articles in this volume are
ordered alphabetically by names of authors.
