The Lattice Boltzmann Equation

Sauro Succi

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the ancestor of the Lattice Boltzmann, the Boolean formulation of hydrodynamics known as lattice Gas Cellular Automata. In 1986, Uriel Frisch, Brosl Hasslacher and Yves Pomeau sent big waves across the fluid dynamics community: a simple cellular automaton obeying nothing but conservation laws at a microscopic level was able to reproduce the complexity of real fluid flows. This discovery spurred great excitement in the fluid dynamics community. The prospects were tantalizing: around free, intrinsically parallel computational paradigm for fluid flows. However, a few serious problems were quickly recognized and addressed with great intensity in the following years.
