Hydrodynamic Fluctuations from the Boltzmann Equation

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Mathematics book series (BRIEFSMATH)


Several solution techniques have been introduced in the literature to obtain approximate solutions of the Boltzmann equation. In particular, the CE method extends the hydrodynamics beyond the NSF approximation in such a way that the decay rate of the nextorder approximations (Burnett and super-Burnett) are polynomials of higher order in k.
