Method of outer and inner asymptotic expansions in the theory of Brownian motion of aerosol particles

  • V. M. Voloshchuk


We examine the Brownian motion of particles in a gaseous medium, complicated by the influence of inertial forces. The equation for the distribution function in phase space describing motion of this type was obtained in [1]. Also presented in [1] are the solutions of this equation for certain simple particular cases. The approximate equations of motion of aerosol particles in coordinate space were first obtained in [2] and solved for certain concrete problems in [3,4]. More exact equations of motion in coordinate space, and also the limits of applicability of the equations of [2], are presented in [5].
