A calculation with respect to momentum transfer by the electronneutral collisions and a new approach to the Boltzmami coffision integral
Abstract
A calculation with respect to momentum transfer by the electronneutral collisions is carried out, based on an idea that collision phenomena should be characterized by mean free path rather than by the collision time, and correction terms are derived for the previous equation of momentum conservation and the previous approach to the Boltzmann collision integral.
