James E. Knott Professor Iain Boyd’s new textbook, “Nonequilibrium Gas Dynamics and Molecular Simulation,” has been published.

The book provides an updated treatment of molecular gas dynamics topics for aerospace engineers, or anyone researching high-temperature gas flows for hypersonic vehicles and propulsion systems. It demonstrates how the areas of quantum mechanics, kinetic theory, and statistical mechanics can combine in order to facilitate the study of nonequilibrium processes of internal energy relaxation and chemistry.
