The direct simulation Monte Carlo (or DSMC) method has, in recent years, become widely used in engineering and scientific studies of gas flows that involve low densities or very small physical dimensions. This method is a direct physical simulation of the motion of representative molecules, rather than a numerical solution of the equations that provide a mathematical model of the flow. These computations are no longer expensive and the period since the 1976 publication of the original Molecular Gas Dynamics has seen enormous improvements in the molecular models, the procedures, and the implementation strategies for the DSMC method. The molecular theory of gas flows is developed from first principles and is extended to cover the new models and procedures. Note: The disk that originally came with this book is no longer available. However, the same information is available from the author's website (http://gab.com.au/)

MEDIA REVIEWS
`... the fact that all the numerical results can be obtained simply by running code supplied with the text is of benefit to the professional engineers and physicists to whom this book will appeal.' Contemporary Physics
This is an updated and very substantially expanded version of the author's 1976 monograph. It reflects the many developments which have occurred in the art of modelling gas flows from an essentially microscopic point of view .........This monograph will surely be used as a reference work in its field for the time to come. * Monatshefte fur Mathematik Vol 122 No 4 1996 *
An updated and very substantially expanded version of the author's 1976 monographs.....Added to the volume is a diskette with a number of Fortran-Routines which will allow the user to get acquaintance and experiment with the methods without having to invest much effort into code development. This monograph will surely be used as a reference work in its field for the time to come * Monatschefte fur Mathematik Vol 122 No 4 1996 *
