Qualitative analysis of the generalized Burnett equations and applications to half--space problems
Marzia Bisi - Dipartimento di Matematica, Università di Parma, Italy (email)
Abstract: The Generalized Burnett Equations, very recently introduced by Bobylev [3,4], are tested versus Fluid--Dynamic applications, considering the classical steady evaporation/condensation problem. By means of the methods of the qualitative theory of dynamical systems, comparison is made to other kinetic and hydrodynamic models, and indications on an appropriate choice of the disposable parameters are obtained.
