The Lattice Boltzmann Equation

Sauro Succi

Oxford University Press

Relativistic hydrodynamics and kinetic theory play an increasing role in many areas of modern physics. Besides their traditional arenas, astrophysics and cosmology, relativistic fluids have recently attracted much attention also within the realm of high-energy and condensed matter physics, mostly in connection with quark-gluon plasmas experiments in heavy-ion colliders and electronic transport in graphene. This chapter describes the extension of the Lattice Boltzmann formalism to the case of relativistic fluids.

Keywords:   relativistic fluids, relativistic kinetic theory, astrophysics, quark-gluon plasmas, electron flows in graphene
