Low-variance deviational simulation Monte Carlo


We present and discuss a particle simulation method for solving the Boltzmann equation which incorporates the variance reduction ideas presented in L. L. Baker and N. G. Hadjiconstantinou Physics of Fluids 17, 051703 2005 . The variance reduction, achieved by simulating only the deviation from equilibrium, results in a significant computational efficiency… (More)
