Featuring updated versions of two research courses held at the Centre Emile Borel in Paris in 2001, this book describes the mathematical theory of convergence to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation and its relation to various problems and fields. It also discusses four conjectures for the kinetic behavior of the hard sphere models and formulates four stochastic variations of this model, also reviewing known results for these.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the reviews: "This nice book is based on two courses given, respectively, by Fraydoun Rezakhanlou and Cedric Villani at the Centre Emile Borel of the Institut Henri Poincare in a special semester organized in the fall term of 2001 by Francois Golse and Stefano Olla. ... discusses many extensions, open questions and perspectives which should be valuable for many researchers in the field of the Boltzmann equation. ... This book ... will be useful to all mathematicians interested in entropy methods." (Clement Mouhot, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 h)
