Abstract : If the distribution function, F, is a linear combination of two Maxwellians with distinct temperatures, densities, average velocities, and masses, both the gain and loss terms of the collision integral in the Boltzmann equation can be evaluated analytically. A gas with such a bimodal distribution function is referred to here as a MottSmith gas. (MottSmith (1951) was the first to use this form of the distribution function to analyze the shock wave structure. (Author)
