Abstract

When working with interacting particle systems, mean-field models provide a link between models on a microscopic scale describing the behavior of the system and simplified models on a macroscopic scale describing the statistical distribution of the particles. In this talk, we will introduce and discuss some main theoretical concepts associated with mean field models, in particular Sznitman’s propagation of chaos results and coupling techniques.
