All papers were peer-reviewed. The book contains papers presented at the 26th International Symposium on Rarefied Gas Dynamics, a conference that is recognized as the principal forum for the presentation of recent advances in the field of rarefied gas dynamics. The topics include fundamental aspects of Boltzmann and related equations, transport theory, Monte Carlo methods, kinetic theory, gas phase molecular collision dynamics, gas surface interaction, state to state kinetics, rarefied plasmas, and non-equilibrium plasma kinetics. Applications in the fields of internal flows, vacuum systems, rarefied jets, plumes, molecular beams, scamjets and hypersonics, microflows, granular gases, and electrical thrusters are discussed. Researchers in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering can strongly benefit from the interdisciplinary nature of the book.
