Exact solution of kinetics of a model classical fluid

J. K. Percus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The hydrodynamic limit of the Enskog equation for one-dimensional hard cores is solved in general, and for the special cases of sound and shock propagation. This equation is shown to be the limit of the exact microscopic kinetics, which is also solved exactly.
