Solutions of the KrookWu model of the Boltzmann equation
Abstract
The KrookWu model (1976) of the nonlinear Boltzmann equation involves a homogeneous isotropic gas for which the collision cross section is inversely proportional to the relative velocity of colliding particles. It is shown in the present paper that the distribution function of this model can be obtained as a generalized Laguerre polynomial expansion with timedependent coefficients.
