We model the wall with semiclassicalequations ofmotionandshow thatfrictionarisesfromthedeviation ofmassive particlepopulations from thermal equilibrium. We treat these with Boltzmann equationsin a fluid approximation in the background of the wall. Our analysis improves onthe previous work by… CONTINUE READING
