In this post, we will see the book Kinetic Theory Of Nonideal Gases And Nonideal Plasmas by Yu. L. Klimontovich.
About the book
The book consists of three parts. The first part is devoted to the classical kinetic theory of nonideal gases, the second to the classical kinetic theory of fully ionized plasmas, and the third to the quantum kinetic theory of nonideal gases and plasmas. The concluding chapter presents a short account of the kinetic theory of chemically reacting systems and of partially ionized plasmas. This chapter was included in order to indicate some directions of further generalizations of the present results, and to attract attention upon this important and interesting problem.
The main stress is laid here on the fundamental aspects of the theory. Relatively little space is given to the applications. Whenever possible, the reader is directed towards additional literature.
The book was translated from Russian by R. Balescu was published in 1982.
