Additional Information
The Direct Simulation Monte Carlo method (DSMC) has long been the approach of choice for simulating these flows. In this talk we will begin with a brief introduction to rarefied gas flows, including discussion of the governing Boltzmann equation, and an outline of the DSMC method. We then discuss several ways in which the basic DSMC approach may be modified, to obtain Monte Carlo methods suited to the simulation of nanoscale gas flows.
