Singularity and regularity for the stationary solutions to linearized Boltzmann equations


In Boltzmann equation, the interplay among free transport, collision, and boundary yields rich phenomena in regularity of solutions. In this talk, we will first introduce the logarithmic singularity both on macroscopic and microscopic variables due to the boundary. Then, we will discuss the regularity of stationary solutions in a convex domain.
Finally, we will provide the analysis that realizes our observation.
