This book presents the concepts, methods and applications of kinetic theory to rarefied gas dynamics. After introducing the basic tools, problems in plane geometry are treated using approximation techniques (perturbation and numerical methods). These same techniques are later used to deal with two- and three-dimensional problems. The models include not only monatomic but also polyatomic gases, mixtures, chemical reactions. A special chapter is devoted to evaporation and condensation phenomena. Each section is accompanied by problems which are mainly intended to demonstrate the use of the material in the text and to outline additional subjects, results and equations. This will help ensure that the book can be used for a range of graduate courses in aerospace engineering or applied mathematics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... this book is certainly by far the best available in its category, be it for the clarity of exposition or for the vast amount of literature which is browsed ... Who should consult this book with profit? Everybody interested in modelling or simulations of rarefied flows ...'. Cedric Villani, European Journal of Mechanics B Fluids
'... fills a gap in the existing literature ... this excellent book is clear and well written.' Mario Pulvirenti, Rarefied Gas Dynamics
'... a very informative and excellently written book with comprehensive cross referencing ... a recommended read.' J. K. Harvey, Journal of Fluid Mechanics
"...Carlo Cercignani has produced a unique book that may be a harbinger of the future." AIAA Journal
"...for persons not too familiar with kinetic theory, it presents a readable and carefully written introduction to the basics of the theory." Mathematical Reviews
" Rarefield Gas Dynamics: From Basic Concept to Actual Calculations is a great comprehensive refernce that is certainly worth the low cost." Appl Mech Rev vol 54, no 5 Sept 01
