0 Angular Momentum Transport in Particle and Fluid Disks

Abstract

We examine the angular momentum transport properties of disks composed of macroscopic particles whose velocity dispersions are externally enhanced (“stirred”). Our simple Boltzmann equation model serves as an analogy for unmagnetized fluid disks in which turbulence may be driven by thermal convection. We show that interparticle collisions in particle disks… (More)
