The program will focus on the following topics: the kinetic theory of motion of rarefied single-component gases and gas mixtures in capillaries under the influence of pressure, temperature and concentration gradients, as well as resonant optical radiation; kinetic theory of motion of fine aerosols in inhomogeneous gases. During the program we will be using analytical and numerical methods for solving the Boltzmann equation.
