We propose a kinetic relaxation-model to describe a generation- recombination reaction of two species. Decay to the stationary solution is studied by using hypocoercivity of the linearized equations. Expo- nential decay of small perturbations can be shown for the full nonlinear problem. We will give a short comparison of recent methods for tack- ling such problems [1, 2, 3]. If time allows we will also discuss the macroscopic/fast-reaction limit and sketch a rigorous derivation using Entropy decay estimates. The macroscopic limit, in our case, is a non- linear diffusion equation for the difference of the position densities. This talk is based on joint work with C. Schmeiser (University Vienna).
