Boltzmann Equation Velocity distribution functions of particles
 

Summary: Boltzmann Equation

Velocity distribution functions of particles

Derivation of Boltzmann Equation
Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann (February 20, 1844 - September 5, 1906), an
Austrian physicist famous for the invention of statistical mechanics. Born
in Vienna, Austria-Hungary, he committed suicide in 1906 by hanging
himself while on holiday in Duino near Trieste in Italy.
Distribution Function (probability
density function)
Random variable y is distributed with the probability
density function f(y) if for any interval [a b] the
probability of a f(y) is always non-negative
P=
a
b
f ydy
