In this chapter, we discuss various fundamental physical problems of simple geometry, such as unidirectional flows, quasi-unidirectional flows, a uniform flow past a sphere, and a plane shock wave. Various fundamental properties of the solution of the Boltzmann equation are provided in these examples.
