Cercignani-Lampis boundary in the Boltzmann theory

Van Vleck Hall, 480 Lincoln Drive, Madison, WI 53706, USA

Received  June 2019 Revised  December 2019 Published  March 2020

The Boltzmann equation is a fundamental kinetic equation that describes the dynamics of dilute gas. In this paper we study the local well-posedness of the Boltzmann equation in bounded domain with the Cercignani-Lampis boundary condition, which describes the intermediate reflection law between diffuse reflection and specular reflection via two accommodation coefficients. We prove the local-in-time well-posedness of the equation by establishing an $ L^\infty $ estimate. In particular, for the $ L^\infty $ bound we develop a new decomposition on the boundary term combining with repeated interaction through the characteristic. Moreover, under some constraints on the wall temperature and the accommodation coefficients, we construct a unique steady solution of the Boltzmann equation.
