A global existence theorem for the initial-boundary-value problem for the Boltzmann equation when the boundaries are not isothermal. (English) Zbl 0789.76075
Summary: We extend the existence theorem recently proved by K. Hamdache [Arch. Ration. Mech. Anal. 119, No. 4, 309-353 (1992; Zbl 0777.76084)] for the initial-boundary value problem for the nonlinear Boltzmann equation in a vessel with isothermal boundaries to more general situations including the case when the boundaries are not isothermal. In the latter case, a cut-off for large speeds is introduced in the collision term of the Boltzmann equation.
