The Lattice Boltzmann Equation

Sauro Succi

Oxford University Press

The LB with enhanced collisions opened the way to the top-down design of LB schemes, with major gains in flexibility and computational efficiency. However, compliance with the second principle was swept under the carpet in the process, with detrimental effects on the numerical stability of the method. It is quite fortunate that, albeit forgotten, the above compliance did not get lost in the top-down procedure. Entropic LB schemes, the object of the present chapter, explain the whys and hows of this nice smile of Lady Luck.

Keywords:   entropy, second principle of thermodynamics, H-theorem, reversibility, stability, top-down approach
