On the Kac model for the Landau equation

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We introduce a $N$-particle system which approximates, in the mean-field limit, the solutions of the Landau equation with Coulomb singularity. This model plays the same role as the Kac's model for the homogeneous Boltzmann equation. We use compactness arguments following [11].
