Characterization of collision kernels

Laurent Desvillettes, Francesco Salvarani
2003 Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis  
In this paper we show how abstract physical requirements are enough to characterize the classical collision kernels appearing in kinetic equations. In particular Boltzmann and Landau kernels are derived. Mathematics Subject Classification. 76P05.
