The L1 and BV-type stability to mild solutions of the inelastic Boltzmann equation is given in this paper. The result is an extension of the stability of the classical solution of the elastic Boltzmann equation proved in Ha (Arch. Ration. Mech. Anal. 173:25�42, 2004 [16]). The observation relies on the energy loss of the inelastic Boltzmann equation. This is a continuity work of Alonso (Indiana Univ. Math. J. [1]), where the author obtained the global existence of a mild solution for the inelastic Boltzmann equation. The proof is based on the mollification method and constructing some functionals as the one in Chae and Ha (Contin. Mech. Thermodyn. 17(7):511�524, 2006 [9]).

    We present three a priori L2-stability estimates for classical solutions to the Boltzmann equation with a cut-off inverse power law potential, when initial datum is a perturbation of a global Maxwellian. We show that L2-stability estimates of classical solutions depend on Strichartz type...
