In this talk I will discuss a particular fast-slow system, and describe an averaging theorem. I will also explain how this particular slow-fast system arises in a certain problem of energy transport in an open system of interacting hard-spheres. The technical aspect involved in this is how to deal with singularities present and the fact that the dynamics is fully coupled.
