31st International Symposium on Rarefied Gas Dynamics

Welcome from the organisers

Scottish scientists, including James Clerk Maxwell, have made indispensable contributions to rarefied gas dynamics. RGD31 will provide an opportunity to experience Scotland’s rich legacy in science, mathematics and engineering. We look forward to welcoming you to Glasgow on 23rd – 27th July, 2018.
