Theory of the generalized collision integral. IV
Abstract
In the maximum time interval of kinetic evolution of the singleparticle distribution function of a spatially homogeneous system summation of the step diagrams (without intersections of the lines of propagation and interaction) is carried out for an arbitrary nonequilibrium state in the Markov limit, as well as for a local equilibrium state with regard for memory effects. Procedures are indicated for the step renormalization of diagrams of arbitrary order with respect to the density in the Markov limit, with subsequent ladder renormalization. Ring diagrams with preliminary step and ladder renormalizations are summed. A more correct derivation is given for the generalized Boltzmann (BoltzmannLandau) collision integrals for dense systems with a strong shortrange (as well as strong longrange) potential. It is shown that the step, ring, and ladder renormalizations yield a nondivergent twoparticle distribution function in a classical equilibrium plasma.
