Lattice Uehling-Uhlenbeck Boltzmann-Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook hydrodynamics of quantum gases.
ABSTRACT We present a semiclassical lattice Boltzmann method based on quantum kinetic theory. The method is directly derived by projecting the Uehling-Uhlenbeck Boltzmann-Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook equations onto the tensor Hermite polynomials following Grad's moment expansion method. The intrinsic discrete nodes of the Gauss-Hermite quadrature provide the natural lattice velocities for the semiclassical lattice Boltzmann method. Gases of particles of arbitrary statistics can be considered. Simulation of one-dimensional compressible gas flow and two-dimensional hydrodynamic flows are shown. The results indicate distinct characteristics of the effects of quantum statistics.
