Relativistic Kinetic Theory: An Introduction
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 30

Description:
We present a brief introduction to the relativistic kinetic theory of gases with emphasis on the underlying geometric and Hamiltonian structure of the theory. Our formalism starts with a discussion on the tangent bundle of a Lorentzian manifold of arbitrary dimension...
