About the Edition

The aim of this book is to present the theory and applications of the relativistic Boltzmann equation in a self-contained manner, even for those readers who have no familiarity with special and general relativity. Though an attempt is made to present the basic concepts in a complete fashion, the style of presentation is chosen to be appealing to readers who want to understand how kinetic theory is used for explicit calculations. The book will be helpful not only as a textbook for an advanced course on relativistic kinetic theory but also as a reference for physicists, astrophysicists and applied mathematicians who are interested in the theory and applications of the relativistic Boltzmann equation.

The aim of this book is to present the theory and applications of the relativistic Boltzmann equation in a self-contained manner, even for those readers who have no familiarity with special and genera.   The aim of this book is to present the theory and applications of the relativistic Boltzmann equation in a self-contained manner, even for those readers who have no familiarity with special and general relativity.5/5(1).   The Relativistic Boltzmann Equation: Theory and Applications by Carlo Cercignani, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. In a non-relativistic theory the most widely known model of the Boltzmann equation is the so-called BGK model which was formulated independently by Bhatnagar, Gross and Krook [4] and Welander [22].

In,, Boltzmann published a paper which for the first time provided a precise mathematical basis for a discussion of the approach to equilibrium. The paper dealt with the approach to equilibrium of a dilute gas and was based on an equation - the Boltzmann equation, as we call it now - for the velocity distribution function of such ~ : Springer-Verlag Wien.

Title: Theory and applications of the relativistic Boltzmann equation. Authors: Gilberto M. Kremer (Submitted on 28 Apr ) Abstract: In this work two systems are analyzed within the framework of the relativistic Boltzmann equation. One of them refers to a description of binary mixtures of electrons and protons and of electrons and photons Cited by: 1. The aim of this book is to present the theory and applications of the relativistic Boltzmann equation in a self-contained manner, even for those readers who have no familiarity with special and general relativity. The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the basic concepts of relativistic kinetic theory and the relativistic Boltzmann equation, which rules the time evolution of the distribution by: The above equation follows also from a relativistic Boltzmann equation in the presence of gravitational fields, where a one-particle distribution function f a ≡ f (x, p a, t) of constituent a.
