Low Density Limit: The Boltzmann Equation

  • Herbert Spohn
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


We consider a low density gas and its description by means of the Boltzmann equation. This topic will be covered at considerable detail, simply because (at least at present) it is one of the most beautiful examples for the emergence of an autonomous large scale dynamics which can be studied with mathematical rigor and at great depth.
