**Abstract:**

The Einstein-Vlasov-Fokker-Planck system describes the kinetic diffusion dynamics of self-gravitating particles within the Einstein theory of general relativity. We study the Cauchy problem for spatially homogeneous and isotropic solutions and prove the existence of both global-in-time solutions and solutions that blow-up in finite time depending on the size of certain functions of the initial data. We also derive information on the large-time behavior of global solutions and toward the singularity for solutions which blow-up in finite time. Our results entail the existence of a phase of decelerated expansion followed by a phase of accelerated expansion, in accordance with the physical expectations in cosmology.

**Abstract:**

The original Keller-Segel system proposed in [*ε* now plays a dual role in the transformed system by acting as the coefficients of both diffusion and nonlinear convection. In this paper, we first consider the dynamics of the transformed Keller-Segel system in a bounded interval with time-dependent Dirichlet boundary conditions. By imposing appropriate conditions on the boundary data, we show that boundary layer profiles are present as *ε*→0 and large-time profiles of solutions are determined by the boundary data. We employ weighted energy estimates with the "effective viscous flux" technique to establish the uniform-in-*ε* estimates to show the emergence of boundary layer profiles. For asymptotic dynamics of solutions, we develop a new idea by exploring the convexity of an entropy expansion to get the basic *L*^{1}-estimate. We the obtain the corresponding results for the original Keller-Segel system by reversing the Cole-Hopf transformation. Numerical simulations are performed to interpret our analytical results and their implications.

**Abstract:**

In general, the non-conservative approximation of coagulation-fragmentation equations (CFEs) may lead to the occurrence of gelation phenomenon. In this article, it is shown that the non-conservative approximation of CFEs can also provide the existence of mass conserving solutions to CFEs for large classes of unbounded coagulation and fragmentation kernels.

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we study the generalized polynomial chaos (gPC) based stochastic Galerkin method for the linear semiconductor Boltzmann equation under diffusive scaling and with random inputs from an *anisotropic* collision kernel and the random initial condition. While the numerical scheme and the proof of *uniform-in-Knudsen-number regularity* of the distribution function in the random space has been introduced in [*uniform spectral convergence* of the stochastic Galerkin method for the problem under study.

**Abstract:**

In this paper, the dynamics of three dimensional Vlasov-Poisson system with radiation damping is investigated. We prove global existence of a classical as well as weak solution that propagates boundedness of velocity-space support or velocity-space moment of order two respectively. This kind of solutions possess finite mass but need not necessarily have finite kinetic energy. Moreover, uniqueness of the classical solution is also shown.

**Abstract:**

This paper is concerned with the stability of noncritical/critical traveling waves for nonlocal time-delayed reaction-diffusion equation. When the birth rate function is non-monotone, the solution of the delayed equation is proved to converge time-exponentially to some (monotone or non-monotone) traveling wave profile with wave speed
