Simulation of Kinetic Processes Involving Coulomb Interaction

  • Yuri N. Dnestrovskii
  • Dimitri P. Kostomarov
Part of the Springer Series in Computational Physics book series (SCIENTCOMP)


At the beginning of this century, L. Boltzmann proposed a kinetic equation that plays an important role in the kinetic theory of gases and plasma. In deriving his equation, he relied on simple mechanical ideas about particle interactions through binary elastic collisions.
