Abstract

We propose a kinetic model of BGK type for a gas mixture of an arbitrary number of species with arbitrary collision law. The model features the same structure of the corresponding Boltzmann equations and fulfils all consistency requirements concerning conservation laws, equilibria, and H- theorem. Comparison is made to existing BGK models for mixtures, and the achieved improvements are commented on. Finally, possible application to the case of Coulomb interaction is brie y discussed.
