Abstract:

The transport properties of a dilute gas are determined by binary collision integrals. In order to predict the first density corrections to the transport properties, it is necessary to consider collision integrals that account for the effects of collisions among three molecules. In the report, the authors derive and formulate such three-particle collision integrals for the coefficients of thermal conductivity, viscosity, and self-diffusion of a gas of hard spherical molecules.
