Fluctuating kinetic equation for a twocomponent Boltzmann gas
Abstract
We generalise a previously derived nonlinear fluctuating Boltzmann equation to twocomponent systems. We study the particular case of diffusion of one component in the other. For the simple example of brownian motion, a LangevinSmoluchovsky equation is obtained.
