This book is the Proceedings of The Fields Institute Conference/NATO Advanced Research Workshop held in June 1993. The articles review the diverse recent progress in the theory and development of lattice-gas and lattice Boltzmann methods and their applications to hydrodynamics, multi-phase flows, flows through porous media, reaction-diffusion systems, pattern formation phenomena, and phase separation processes. Discussed here are various aspects of the statistical analysis of these methods, with emphasis on fluctuations and correlations, as well as computational prospects including development of dedicated hardware.


  • up-to-date articles covering theory and applications
  • interdisciplinary approach, which includes mathematics, physics, chemistry, and geophysics
  • abstracts of papers published from 1992 through 1995

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).


Research mathematicians, physicists, chemists, and engineers in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, fluid dynamics, pattern formation, stochastic processes, partial differential equations, and numerical methods.
