Abstract : The volume develops complete sets of flow equations for composite gases, including those giving the components of heat flow and the pressure tensor. Attention is given to both the single-and multi-fluid pictures. Topics treated include the Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook and Fokker-Planck approximations, charged particles in electric and magnetic fields, and the effects of chemical reactions and of radiation. Separate treatment of the left and right sides of the Boltzmann equation facilitates discussion of various collision problems, cross-section cutoff effect with two-particle distribution functions, the standard Maxwell-Boltzmann collision integral, and other topics.
