We present a theory for the construction of renormalized kinetic equations to describe the dynamics of classical systems of particles in or out of equilibrium. A closed, self-consistent set of evolution equations is derived for the single-particle phase-space distribution function f, the correlation function C=〈δfδf〉, the retarded and advanced density response functions χR,A=δf/δφ to an external potential φ, and the associated memory functions ΣR,A,C. The basis of the theory is an effective…

Mean force kinetic theory: A convergent kinetic theory for weakly and strongly coupled plasmas
A new closure of the BBGKY hierarchy is developed, which results in a convergent kinetic equation that provides a rigorous extension of plasma kinetic theory into the regime of strong Coulomb
Mean force kinetic theory applied to self-diffusion in supercritical Lennard-Jones fluids.
A new kinetic-theory-based calculation of the self-diffusion coefficient for dense supercritical Lennard-Jones fluids is presented and it is expected that this approach will also apply to other systems, including neutral-plasma and neutral-electrolyte mixtures.
