Construction of renormalized collision integral for a quantum gas

  • 13 Accesses


A quantum analog is obtained for the renormalized collision integral derived for a classical gas in [1]. As usual [2], considering lag effects in the renormalized collision integral corresponds to taking account of the nondissipative contribution of the interaction.
