A new Taylor Galerkin approach for compressible Euler equations based on the Kinetic Theory of Gases has been presented. The new Boltzmann Taylor Galerkin (BTG) FEM has been shown to be as accurate and as fast as the two step Taylor Galerkin and less dissipative than other Boltzmann schemes for continuum gas dynamics.
