In this work, we employed the invariant manifold method to derive closed hydrodynamic equations from some kinetic models. The main novelty of our approach stems from the use of a nonperturbative technique that allows us to sum exactly the classical Chapman–Enskog expansion. The method postulates a separation between slow and fast moments, and allows us to extract the slow invariant manifold in the space of distribution functions.
