  author={Ricardo J. Alonso and Bertrand Lods and Isabelle Tristani},
  journal={arXiv: Analysis of PDEs},
In this paper, we provide the first rigorous derivation of hydrodynamic equations from the Boltzmann equation for inelastic hard spheres with small inelasticity. The hydrodynamic system that we obtain is an incompressible Navier-Stokes-Fourier system with self-consistent forcing terms and, to our knowledge, it is thus the first hydrodynamic system that properly describes rapid granular flows consistent with the kinetic formulation. To this end, we write our Boltzmann equation in a non…

Hypocoercivity for kinetic linear equations in bounded domains with general Maxwell boundary condition

We establish the convergence to the equilibrium for various linear collisional kinetic equations (including linearized Boltzmann and Landau equations) with physical local conservation laws in bounded

From Boltzmann Equation for Granular Gases to a Modified Navier–Stokes–Fourier System

In this paper, we give an overview of the results established in Alonso (http://arxiv.org/org/abs/2008.05173, 2020) which provides the first rigorous derivation of hydrodynamic equations from the

Almost-exponential moments of the inelastic Boltzmann equation for hard potentials without angular cutoff

Abstract. This paper is concerned with the inelastic Boltzmann equation without angular cutoff. We work in the spatially homogeneous case. We establish the global-in-time existence of measure-valued

Dynamics and hydrodynamic limits of the inelastic Boltzmann equation

We investigate the macroscopic description of a dilute, gas-like system of particles, which interact through binary collisions that conserve momentum and mass, but which dissipate energy, as in the

Mechanics of collisional motion of granular materials. Part 1. General hydrodynamic equations

Collisional motion of a granular material composed of rough inelastic spheres is analysed on the basis of the kinetic Boltzmann–Enskog equation. The Chapman–Enskog method for gas kinetic theory is
