Robson, R. E.
Transport processes in gases are examined from both the point of
view of non-equilibrium thermodynamics and kinetic theory.
Thermodynamics is used to establish concise representations of the
general properties of transport coefficients, and in particular, it is
shown how the redundancy of Onsager relations in systems with
geometrical symmetries can be removed by using the theory of
irreducible tensorial sets. The Boltzmann equation for fully and
partially ionized gases is solved by a...[Show more]
