Analysis of the effect of pairwise particle interactions on the effective viscosity of dilute suspensions

We shall review recent mathematical results on the correction to Einstein's formula for the effective viscosity of dilute suspensions. This correction implies to consider pair interactions of particles, which yields interesting problems related to mean-field limits and stochastic homogenization. Connection to recent mathematical works on Coulomb gases will be discussed as well.
