DESCRIPTION:I'm going to talk about convergence to equilibrium
measured in relative entropy. I will discuss how
to show convergence in relative entropy for some s
imple equations found in kinetic theory. I will br
iefly discuss the standard methods for proving con
vergence in relative entropy and also what happens
when you introduce spatial inhomogeneity by addin
g a transport term. The problem of showing converg
ence to equilibrium for spatially inhomogeneous ki
netic equations led Villani and others to introduc
e the theory of hypocoercivity. Hopefully\, I will
try and explain the problem that hypocoercivity s
eeks to solve and how to show convergence to equil
ibrium in some of these cases.
