By Stewart Harris

Boltzmann's equation (or Boltzmann-like equations) seems greatly in such disparate fields as laser scattering, solid-state physics, nuclear delivery, and past the normal obstacles of physics and engineering, within the fields of mobile proliferation and vehicle site visitors stream. This introductory graduate-level path for college students of physics and engineering bargains unique displays of the elemental glossy conception of Boltzmann’s equation, together with consultant functions utilizing either Boltzmann’s equation and the version Boltzmann equations constructed in the textual content. It emphasizes actual facets of the idea, and it represents a pragmatic source for researchers and different pros. the issues following every one bankruptcy are meant as studying examples, they usually often expand and generalize the textual content fabric. extra editorial gains comprise a old advent, references, and topic and writer indexes. 1971 edition.
