  • In gas dynamics, the connection between the continuum physics model offered by the Navier-Stokes equations and the heat equation and the molecular model offered by the kinetic theory of gases has been understood for some time, especially through the work of Chapman and Enskog, but it has never been established rigorously. This paper established a precise bridge between these two models for a simple linear Boltzman-like equation. Specifically a special class of solutions, the grossly determined solutions, of this kinetic model are shown to exist and satisfy closed form balance equations representing a class of continuum model solutions.
