Maximum entropy principle in relativistic radiation hydrodynamics II: Compton and double Compton scattering
Recently , a procedure has been proposed in order to close the set of the moment equations of relativistic radiative fluid dynamics. In particular explicit expressions for the moments of the bremsstrahlung and Thomson scattering source terms have been given. In this work, as anticipated in , we shall treat in a systematic way Comptonization and double Compton scattering too. Numerical results relative to the Compton cooling of hot electrons are shown.
