In recent years kinetic theory has developed in many areas of the physical sciences and engineering, and has extended the borders of its traditional fields of application. This monograph is a self-contained presentation of such recently developed aspects of kinetic theory, as well as a comprehensive account of the fundamentals of the theory. Emphasizing modeling techniques and numerical methods, the book provides a unified treatment of kinetic equations not found in more focused works. Specific applications presented include plasma kinetic models, traffic flow models, granular media models, and coagulation-fragmentation problems. The work may be used for self-study, as a reference text, or in graduate-level courses in kinetic theory and its applications.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Kinetic models can be used to describe the behaviour of gases and fluids in applications ... . The structure is different from a classical book, as it is actually a collection of scientific papers. ... it is recommended primarily for mathematicians with a high interest in physics, or for theoretical physicists, both of which at least at graduate level, but for those who understand the presented ideas, it might be a highly valuable tool or an inspiration for further research." (Simon Seichter, Simulation News Europe, Vol. 16 (1), 2006)
