Explicit formula of energy-conserving, Fokker-Planck-type collision term for single-species point vortex system

View File

A kinetic equation for an unbounded two-dimensional point vortex system is considered. Similar to the Fokker-Planck equation, obtained collision term consists of a diffusion term and a drift (friction) term. It can be demonstrated that the collision term (a) conserves the system energy, (b) satisfies the H theorem that indicates the system temporally developing toward a thermal equilibrium state and (c) disappears locally in a locally equilibrium region with the same temperature. When system reaches a global equilibrium state, the collision term disappears all over the system.
