Titolo: On the modeling of transport phenomena

Abstract: Sound modeling is a necessary premise for all problems in
mathematical analysis that are meant to be of interest for applications.
Equations intended to capture the phenomenology of convection, diffusion,
and drift, are no exceptions. Firstly, I will review the deterministic
approach of Continuum Mechanics. Next, I will discuss how probabilistic
counterparts of the basic CM balance equations can be arrived at within
the framework of non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics. Finally, on moving
from Einstein’s and Langevin’s probabilistic/stochastic modeling of
Brownian motion, I will briefly introduce anomalous diffusion.
