We review some classical and more recent results for the derivation of mean field equations from systems of many particles, focusing on the stochastic case where a large system of SDEs leads to a McKean–Vlasov PDE as the number N of particles goes to infinity. Classical mean field limit results require that the interaction kernel be essentially Lipschitz. To handle more singular interaction kernels is a long-standing and challenging question but which has had some recent successes.
