**Homogeneous Boltzmann Equation in Quantum Relativistic Kinetic Theory**

by M. Escobedo, S. Mischler, M.A. Valle

**Publisher**: American Mathematical Society 2003**Number of pages**: 85

**Description**:

We consider some mathematical questions about Boltzmann equations for quantum particles, relativistic or non relativistic. Relevant particular cases such as Bose, Bose-Fermi, and photon-electron gases are studied. We also consider some simplifications such as the isotropy of the distribution functions and the asymptotic limits.
