Discrete Kinetic Models for Dynamic Phase Transitions

In this talk, we shall discuss low-order regularizations for dynamic phase transitions. We shall construct a category of discrete kinetic models that may provide various kinetic relations and nucleation criteria. Each model leads to a numerical scheme, which differs from other scheme by second-order terms. This will be illustrated through some specific models, such as Suliciu's model, and Jin-Xin's relaxation model. We shall apply the relaxed scheme to van der Waals fluid in both 1-D and 2-D, and present some simulation results.
