Physical fundamentals of the generalized Boltzmann kinetic theory of ionized gases


M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State Academy of Fine Chemical Technology, prosp. Vernadskogo 86, Moscow, 117571, Russian Federation

In recent years, the kinetic and hydrodynamic descriptions of transport phenomena have been improved significantly through the extension of the Boltzmann physical kinetics. In this review the basic results of the generalized Boltzmann kinetic theory of partially and fully ionized gases are presented and some of its applications are discussed.
