Abstract A spectral numerical scheme computing the asymptotic states for linear half space problems is described in the case of a simple transport equation and the linearized Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook (BGK) model. This method seems to be very efficient and the results are in good agreement with those obtained by more direct computations and by other authors.
