This self-contained book is an up-to-date description of the basic theory of molecular gas dynamics and its various applications. The book, unique in the literature, presents working knowledge, theory, techniques, and typical phenomena in rarefied gases for theoretical development and application. Basic theory is developed in a systematic way and presented in a form easily applied for practical use. In this work, the ghost effect and non-Navier–Stokes effects are demonstrated for typical examples—Bénard and Taylor–Couette problems—in the context of a new framework. A new type of ghost effect is also discussed.
“This is a comprehensive and self-contained text giving an overview of gas dynamics on the basis of kinetic theory in the tradition of asymptotic analysis as pursued by the author and his collaborators…[T]he treatment is lucid and self-contained, with masterfully chosen and executed expansions that do not usually find their way into textbooks…Throughout the whole book, the presentation is illustrated with numerical graphs and tables based on widely varying numerical methods chosen with regard to the respective problems. Clarifying footnotes are generously provided, useful both for the beginner and for the experienced user. An added bonus is accurate and up-to-date surveys of the mathematical status of the various problems together with an in-depth bibliography. This impressive monograph…will become a convenient and lasting reference in the area.” ?Transport Theory and Statistical Physics
