In the lattice form, the Boltzmann equation can be expressed as a set of algebraic equations of the probability distribution function at each state, [f.
Using the IB-LBM, the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) that governs the viscous flow dynamics and incorporates the traction jump across the interface due to the elastic membrane is written as [1,14, 42, 43, 45, 46]
1981; 1989) introduced a "manifestly covariant" relativistic Boltzmann equation that shows a different mean energy-temperature relation in the ultra-relativistic regime of infinite temperature.

US) suggest replacing the Boltzmann equation with the Wigner transport equation, which is similar, except in the influence of the potential whose rapid space variations generate quantum effects.
Unlike traditional CFD methods, LBM solves the discrete Boltzmann equation to simulate the flow of a fluid by using collision models, such as Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (BGK).
usually characteristic of the Boltzmann equation (where it describes collisions between particles), integrates the contribution from nonlinear interactions into changes in the wave fields, [T.
Washington, May 14 (ANI): Two mathematicians from University of Pennsylvania have solved a 140-year-old, 7-dimensional Boltzmann equation, which remained a puzzle for more than a century despite its widespread use in modelling the behaviour of gases.
The time evolution of the PVDF obeys a differential form of the lattice Boltzmann equation and its local collidion operator is simplified using the Bhatnagar Gross Krook (BGK) model (7) with the single relaxation time approximation as
More than a decade ago, researchers were surprised to learn that using the Boltzmann equation to calculate simple fluid flows didn't make the simulations more difficult or time consuming to carry out.
This paper describes a multilevel algorithm for solving the multi-group, anisotropic scattering Boltzmann equation formulated with a first-order system least-squares methodology.
