Abstract [en]

We study typical half-space problems of rarefied gas dynamics, including the problems of Milne and Kramer, for the discrete Boltzmann equation (a general discrete velocity model, DVM, with an arbitrary finite number of velocities). Then the discrete Boltzmann equation reduces to a system of ODEs. The data for the outgoing particles at the boundary are assigned, possibly linearly depending on the data for the incoming particles. A classification of well-posed half-space problems for the homogeneous, as well as the inhomogeneous, linearized discrete Boltzmann equation is made. In the non-linear case the solutions are assumed to tend to an assigned Maxwellian at infinity. The conditions on the data at the boundary needed for the existence of a unique (in a neighborhood of the assigned Maxwellian) solution of the problem are investigated. In the non-degenerate case (corresponding, in the continuous case, to the case when the Mach number at the Maxwellian at infinity is different of -1, 0 and 1) implicit conditions are found. Furthermore, under certain assumptions explicit conditions are found, both in the non-degenerate and degenerate cases. An application to axially symmetric models is also studied
