Homogeneous Boltzmann Equation in Quantum Relativistic Kinetic Theory

Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2003
Number of pages: 85
We consider some mathematical questions about Boltzmann equations for quantum particles, relativistic or non relativistic. Relevant particular cases such as Bose, Bose-Fermi, and photon-electron gases are studied. We also consider some simplifications such as the isotropy of the distribution functions and the asymptotic limits.

This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The goal is to develop some ideas of contemporary research. Many of the ideas are illustrated or even introduced by examples.

This text explores the solution of two-dimensional lattice models. Topics include basic statistical mechanics, Ising models, mean field model, spherical model, ice-type models, corner transfer matrices, hard hexagonal models, and elliptic functions.
