Example text

Assuming that one collision is enough to get the molecule into equilibrium with the wall,1 these molecules are therefore characterised by a distribution function f + which is an equilibrium distribution having the form of (8) for the temperature T1 . Hence, f + = A exp(−mv 2 /2kB T1 ), where A is a constant to be determined (in particular, because we do not know the density of these molecules). 1 This hypothesis can be improved by introducing an accommodation factor at the wall. See, for example [6].

The solid angle dΩ contains the direction of the relative velocity v 1 − v after the collision and is called the scattering solid angle, whilst dσ/ dΩ is the differential scattering cross-section. The original Boltzmann equation as formulated by Boltzmann himself at the end of the nineteenth century is the dynamical equation (10) in which the right-hand side has been replaced by the expression for the collision term in (11). By abuse of language, (10) is often referred to as the Boltzmann equation, whatever model is used to express the right-hand side.

The difficulty here is that we cannot find a solution of this type which satisfies the boundary conditions. To get round this problem, one usually works with periodic boundary conditions (Born–von Karman boundary conditions). We require the wave function at x = 0 to equal the wave function at x = L1 , the other end of the crystal. This maneuver allows one to introduce the finite size of the crystal whilst continuing to work with propagative solutions. This then requires exp(ikx L1 ) = 1, whence kx = 2πp/L1 , where p is an integer.
