An asymptotic preserving scheme for the Kac model of the Boltzmann equation in the diffusion limit

Abstract

In this paper we propose a numerical scheme to solve the Kac model of the Boltzmann equation for multiscale rarefied gas dynamics. This scheme is uniformly stable with respect to the Knudsen number, consistent with the fluid-diffusion limit for small Knudsen numbers, and with the Kac equation in the kinetic regime. Our approach is based on the micro-macro… (More)
