Abstract: Averaging lemmas consist in a regularizing effect on the average of the solution to a linear kinetic equation. Some of the main results are reviewed and their proofs presented in as self contained a way as possible. The use of kinetic formulations for the well posedness of scalar conservation laws is eventually explained as an example of application.
