In this paper, we propose an efficient, high order accurate and asymptotic-preserving (AP) semi-Lagrangian (SL) method for the BGK model with constant or spatially dependent Knudsen number. The spatial discretization is performed by a mass conservative nodal discontinuous Galerkin (NDG) method, while the temporal discretization of the stiff relaxation term is realized by stiffly accurate diagonally implicit Runge-Kutta (DIRK) methods along characteristics. Extra order conditions are enforced in… Expand
