The Lattice Boltzmann Equation

Sauro Succi

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the side-up approach to Lattice Boltzmann, namely the formal derivation from the continuum Boltzmann-(BGK) equation via Hermite projection and subsequent evaluation of the kinetic moments via Gauss–Hermite quadrature. From a slightly different angle, one may also interpret the Gauss–Hermite quadrature as an optimal sampling of velocity space, or, better still, an exact sampling of the bulk of the distribution function, the one contributing most to the lowest order kinetic moments (frequent events). Capturing higher–order moments, beyond hydrodynamics (rare events), requires an increasing number of nodes and weights.

Keywords:   Gauss–Hermite quadrature, kinetic moments, projection methods, side-up approach
