Abstract: 

Hilbert Sixth Problem concerns mainly about the relationship between Newtonian interacting particles, Boltzmann's kinetic theory, and the fluid dynamics. These are different mathematical description of gas motions in the micro, meso and macro scales. We plan to survey the existing results over the decades and the remaining outstanding open problems.
