Finite time blow-up and condensation for the bosonic Nordheim equation
MetadataShow full item record
The homogeneous bosonic Nordheim equation is a kinetic equation describing the dynamics of the distribution of particles in the space of moments for a homogeneous, weakly interacting, quantum gas of bosons. We show the existence of classical solutions of the homogeneous bosonic Nordheim equation that blow up in finite time. We also prove finite time condensation for a class of weak solutions of the kinetic equation.
