We establish a Navier-Stokes-Fourier limit for solutions of the Boltzmann equation considered over any periodic spatial domain of dimension two or more. We do this for a broad class of collision kernels that relaxes the Grad small deflection cutoff condition for hard potentials and includes for the first time the case of soft potentials. Appropriately scaled families of DiPernaLions renormalized solutions are shown to have fluctuations that are compact. Every limit point is governed by a weak… CONTINUE READING
