An Introduction to the Theory of the Boltzmann Equation by Stewart Harris

By Stewart Harris

Boltzmann's equation (or Boltzmann-like equations) appears to be like commonly in such disparate fields as laser scattering, solid-state physics, nuclear shipping, and past the traditional barriers of physics and engineering, within the fields of mobile proliferation and motor vehicle site visitors movement. This introductory graduate-level direction for college kids of physics and engineering deals precise shows of the fundamental glossy idea of Boltzmann’s equation, together with consultant purposes utilizing either Boltzmann’s equation and the version Boltzmann equations built in the textual content. It emphasizes actual points of the idea, and it represents a realistic source for researchers and different execs. the issues following every one bankruptcy are meant as studying examples, and so they usually expand and generalize the textual content fabric. extra editorial beneficial properties comprise a ancient creation, references, and topic and writer indexes. 1971 edition.
