A kinetic equation for spin polarized Fermi systems
Journal article, 2014

This paper considers a kinetic Boltzmann equation, having a gen- eral type of collision kernel and modelling spin-dependent Fermi gases at low temperatures. The distribution functions have values in the space of posi- tive hermitean 2 2 complex matrices. Global existence of weak solutions is proved in L 1 \ L 1 for the initial value problem of this Boltzmann equation in a periodic box
