Abstract

We present a new efficient method to compute Uehling–Uhlenbeck collision integral for any two-particle and three-particle interactions in relativistic plasma with drastic improvement in computation time with respect to existingmethods. Reaction rates are compared, where possible, with the corresponding analytical expressions and another numerical results.
