In this lecture I will give a survey of some recent results concerning the rigorous derivation of macroscopic evolution equations starting from the microscopic model given by the random Lorentz Gas. In particular, we will focus on the characterization of stationary nonequilibrium states exhibiting transport phenomena by validating the Fick’s law of diffusion in a situation of low density. Moreover, we will present some recent progress on the rigorous derivation of linear kinetic equations with an external magnetic field.
