An Introduction to the Theory of the Boltzmann Equationby Stewart Harris
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Boltzmann's equation (or Boltzmannlike equations) appears extensively in such disparate fields as laser scattering, solidstate physics, nuclear transport, and beyond the conventional boundaries of physics and engineering, in the fields of cellular proliferation and automobile traffic flow. This introductory graduatelevel course for students of physics and engineering offers detailed presentations of the basic modern theory of Boltzmanns equation, including representative applications using both Boltzmanns equation and the model Boltzmann equations developed within the text. It emphasizes physical aspects of the theory, and it represents a practical resource for researchers and other professionals. The problems following each chapter are intended as learning examples, and they frequently extend and generalize the text material. Additional editorial features include a historical introduction, references, and subject and author indexes. 1971 edition. Synopsis:This introductory graduatelevel text emphasizes physical aspects of the theory of Boltzmann's equation in a detailed presentation that doubles as a practical resource for professionals. 1971 edition.
