We consider the discrete Boltzmann equation for binary gas mixtures. Some known results for half-space problems and shock profile solutions of the discrete Boltzmann for single-component gases are extended to the case of two-component gases. These results include well-posedness results for half-space problems for the linearized discrete Boltzmann equation, existence results for half-space problems for the weakly non-linear discrete Boltzmann equation, and existence results for shock profile solutions of the discrete Boltzmann equation. A characteristic number, corresponding to the speed of sound in the continuous case, is calculated for a class of symmetric models. Some explicit calculations are also made for a simplified 6 + 4 -velocity model.
