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 third part presents an overview of applications ranging from covariant theory of plasma response, thermalization of relativistic plasma, comptonization in static and moving media to kinetics of self-gravitating systems, cosmological structure formation and . Therefore applications of statistical physics can also be found in data-intensive research areas such as astrophysics, en- it becomes the convincing and universal theory that it actually is. The book by Callen also draws heavily on the work by Edwin Jaynes on the relation- including the Boltzmann equation, Langevin dynamics and the.

Introduction In this paper, we consider the relativistic Boltzmann and Landau equations for the dynamics of dilute particles in the whole space. Recall that the relativistic Boltzmann equation takes the form ∂ t F + ˆv ∇ x F = C(F, F), () with initial condition F(0,x,v) = F 0 (x,v).Cited by: Carlo Cercignani is the author of Ludwig Boltzmann ( avg rating, 25 ratings, 1 review, published ), The Boltzmann Equation and Its Applications (/5(3).

The Boltzmann equation is one of the most powerful tools for investigating the plasma state, from the electron kinetics in weakly ionized gases to fusion and astrophysical [14, 15] plasmas. In this chapter we present the theoretical foundation of the Boltzmann and Vlasov equations, giving an overview of their applications. The Boltzmann equation or Boltzmann transport equation (BTE) describes the statistical behaviour of a thermodynamic system not in a state of equilibrium, devised by Ludwig Boltzmann in The classic example of such a system is a fluid with temperature gradients in space causing heat to flow from hotter regions to colder ones, by the random but biased transport of the particles making up.
