Entropy production for ellipsoidal BGK model of the Boltzmann equation

1. 

Department of mathematics, Sungkyunkwan University, Suwon 440-746, South Korea

The ellipsoidal BGK model (ES-BGK) is a generalized version of the original BGK model, designed to yield the correct Prandtl number in the Navier-Stokes limit. In this paper, we make two observations on the entropy production functional of the ES-BGK model. First, we show that the Cercignani type estimate holds for the ES-BGK model in the whole range of relaxation parameter $-1/2<\nu<1$. Secondly, we observe that the ellipsoidal relaxation operator satisfies an unexpected sign-definite property. Some implications of these observations are also discussed.
