A stochastic method of solving an initial-boundary value problem for the Boltzmann equation. (English. Russian original) Zbl 0777.65074
Comput. Math. Math. Phys. 32, No. 4, 489-498 (1992); translation from Zh. Vychisl. Mat. Mat. Fiz. 32, No. 4, 576-586 (1992).
The author considers a system of stochastic differential equations describing the evolution of a system of \(N\) stochastically mutually affecting particles. The approximation with \(N\to\infty\) of this system at an initial-boundary value problem for the Boltzman equation is proved.
