After a short introduction to kinetic equations, I will explain the principle of diffusion approximation which justifies the fact that the solution of a kinetic equation is approximated by an equilibrium profile with a density satisfying a macroscopic equation. I will then focus on the Fokker Planck equation with heavy tail equilibrium handled by a spectral method.
