In this talk we shall discuss dynamics of systems of particles that allow interactions beyond binary, and their behavior as the number of particles goes to infinity. In particular, an example of such a system of bosons leads to a quintic nonlinear Schrodinger equation, which we rigorously derived in a joint work with Thomas Chen. An example of a system of classical particles that allows instantaneous ternary interactions leads to a new kinetic equation that can be understood as a step towards modeling a dense gas in non-equilibrium. We call this equation a ternary Boltzmann equation and we rigorously derive it in a recent work with Ioakeim Ampatzoglou.
