Kinetic theory derivation of the transport coefficients of stochastic rotation dynamics.
- We use a kinetic theory approach to derive the continuum Navier-Stokes and heat conduction equations for stochastic rotation dynamics, a particle based algorithm for simulating a fluid. Hence we obtain expressions for the viscosity and thermal conductivity in two and three dimensions. The predictions are tested numerically and good agreement is found.
