A wide spectrum of multiscale analysis results (like convergence proofs) can be found in this book
Presents practically important information such as derivations of mean-field equations, methods to handle hard contacts numerically, to model group behavior
Multiscale models in social applications combine mean-field and kinetic equations with either microscopic or macroscopic level descriptions. In this book the reader will find not only a wide spectrum of multiscale analysis results (like convergence proofs), but also practically important information such as derivations of mean-field equations, methods to handle hard contacts numerically, to model group behavior, to quantitative estimate microscopic/macroscopic segregation of competing species, to quantitative understand the limits of validity of mass-action kinetics for simple reactions.
