Editors: Lorenzo Pareschi, Giovanni Russo and Giuseppe Toscani (University of Ferrara)
Book Description:
The book is divided into three parts, which contain respectively recent
results in the kinetic theory of granular gases, kinetic theory of chemically
reacting gases, and numerical methods for kinetic systems.
Part I is devoted to theoretical aspects of granular gases.
Part II presents recent results on modelling of kinetic systems in which
molecules can undergo binary collisions in presence of chemical reactions
and/or in presence of quantum effects.
Part III contains several contributions related to the construction of suit-
able numerical methods and simulations for granular gases.
