Convergence of solutions to the Boltzmann equation in the incompressible Euler limit. (English) Zbl 1016.76071

Summary: We consider the problem of deriving rigorously, for well-prepared initial data and without any additional assumption, dissipative or smooth solutions of incompressible Euler equations from renormalized solutions of Boltzmann equation. This completes the partial results obtained by F. Bouchut, F. Golse and M. Pulvirenti [Kinetic equations and asymptotic theory. Ed. by B. Perthame and L. Desvillettes. Series in Applied Mathematics (Paris). 4. Paris: Gauthier-Villars/Elsevier. 162 p. (2000; Zbl 0979.82048)] and P.-L. Lions and N. Masmoudi [Arch. Ration. Mech. Anal. 158, 173-193, 195-211 (2001; Zbl 0987.76088)].
