Weakly-Coupled Systems with Binary Collisions
In a system which consists of many interacting particles, the weakcoupling assumption allows us to introduce a well controlled approximation to consider the chain of the equations for correlation functions. This leads to a very significant simplification of the original collisional integral to describe collisional relaxation and transport in astrophysical plasma but not in self-gravitating systems.
