    Kinetic theory is presented which proposes an explanation of a carrier gas effect on nucleation in DCC. The main idea of this theory is that for DCC transport of condensing molecules to the cluster surface is determined by their diffusion through a carrier gas that results in new kinetic...

    A method for calculating the electron kinetics in dense gases in strong electric fields is developed. The method differs from the forward-backward approximation proposed by Raizer and Shneider for �high-energy� electrons in that it introduces the effective cosines of the scattering...

    We develop a kinetic theory of cluster decay by considering the stochastic motion of molecules within an effective potential of mean force (PMF) due to the cluster. We perform molecular dynamics simulations on a 50-atom argon cluster to determine the mean radial force on a component atom and...

    The direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC), a kinetic method, was recently expanded to include the simulation of homogeneous condensation in the free expansion of water plumes and the results show that the nucleation rate is a key factor to accurately modeling of condensation phenomenon. In this...

    The problem of calculation of the heat flux from a spherical particle in a molecular gas is considered. The results of numerical calculations for the collision integral similar to that in the BGK model are presented under the condition of purely diffuse reflection of gas molecules from the...
