Description

Abstract A Maple code is provided which is used to compute the matrix elements of the collision operators in the Boltzmann equation for arbitrary differential elastic collision cross section. The present paper describes an efficient method for the calculation of the matrix elements of the collision operators in the Sonine basis set. The method employs the generating functions for these polynomials. The transport properties of gaseous mixtures of atoms and/or ions are generally determined from solution... Title of program: MCBC Catalogue Id: AEGJ_v1_0 Nature of problem The representation of the collision operators in the Boltzmann equation in the basis set of Sonine (Laguerre) polynomials. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEGJ_v1_0; MCBC; 10.1016/j.cpc.2010.05.011 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
