Rarefied ideal gases-elastic: classical conservative Boltzmann Transport eq. Energy dissipative phenomena: Gas of elastic or inelastic interacting systems in the presence of a thermostat with a fixed background temperature ө b or Rapid granular flow dynamics: (inelastic hard sphere interactions): homogeneous cooling states, randomly heated states, shear flows, shockwaves past wedges, etc. (Soft) condensed matter at nano scale: Bose-Einstein condensates models and charge transport in solids: current/voltage transport modeling semiconductor. Emerging applications from stochastic dynamics for multi-linear Maxwell type interactions : Multiplicatively Interactive Stochastic Processes: Pareto tails for wealth distribution, non-conservative dynamics: opinion dynamic models, particle swarms in population dynamics, etc ( Fujihara, Ohtsuki, Yamamoto 06,Toscani, Pareschi, Caceres 05-06 …).

A general form statistical transport : The space-homogenous BTE with external heating sources Important examples from mathematical physics and social sciences: The term models external heating sources: background thermostat (linear collisions), thermal bath (diffusion) shear flow (friction), dynamically scaled long time limits (self-similar solutions).

Non-Equilibrium Stationary Statistical States Elastic case Inelastic case
A new deterministic approach to compute numerical solution for non-linear non-conservative Boltzmann equations: Spectral-Lagrangian constrained solvers (Filbet, Pareschi & Russo) observing purely kinetic phenomena ( With H. Tharkabhushanam JCP08) In preparation, 08 Resolution of boundary layers discontinuities In preparation, 08
Soft condensed matter phenomena Remark: The numerical algorithm is based on the evolution of the continuous spectrum of the solution as in Greengard-Lin00 spectral calculation of the free space heat kernel, i.e. self-similar of the heat equation in all space.

Elastic space inhomogeneous problem Shock tube simulations with a wall boundary Shock propagation phenomena: Example 1: Shock propagation phenomena: Traveling shock with specular reflection boundary conditions at the left wall and a wall shock initial state. Time step: Δt = 0.005 mft, mean free path l = 1, 700 time steps, CPU 55hs mesh points: phase velocity N v = 16^3 in [-5,5)^3 - Space: N x =50 mesh points in 30 mean free paths: Δx=3/5 Total number of operations : O(N x N v 2 log(N v )).

The Riemann Problem: 1D-3D hard spheres elastic gas The macroscopic i.c. satisfy the Rankine-Hugoniot Kn=0.01 t 0 the mean free time dx = t 0 /2 For Kn use hydrodynamic solvers
The method is designed to capture the distribution behavior for elastic and inelastic collisions. Conservation is achieved by a constrained Lagrange multiplier technique wherein the conservation properties are the constraints in the optimization problem. The resulting scalar objective function is optimized. Other deterministic methods based on Fourier Series (Pareschi, Russo01, Filbet03 Rjasanov and Ibrahimov-02) are only for elastic/conservative interactions and conserves only the density and not higher moments. Required moments can be conserved computation of very accurate kinetic energy dissipative problems, independent of micro reversibility properties. The method produces no oscillatory behavior, even at lower order time discretization: Homogeneous Boltzmann collision Integral is a strong smoothing operator Deterministic spectral/Lagrangian Method
In the works and future plans Spectral – Lagrangian solvers for non-linear Boltzmann transport eqs. Space inhomogeneous calculations: temperature gradient induced flows like a Cylindrical Taylor-Couette flow and the Benard convective problem. Chemical gas mixture implementation. Correction to hydrodynamics closures Challenge problems: The proposed deterministic method does not guarantee the positivity of the pdf. This problem may be solved by primal-dual interior point method from linear programming algorithms for solutions of discrete inequations, but it may not be worth the effort. adaptive hybrid – methods: coupling of kinetic/fluid interfaces (use hydrodynamic limit equations for statistical equilibrium) Implementation of parallel solvers.
