Binary quantum collision operators conserving mass momentum and energy
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 336 (2003) no. 9, pp. 785-790.

In this Note, we generalize the Boltzmann collision operator modeling binary particle–particle collisions to a quantum framework using nonlocal quantum entropy principles.

Dans cette Note, nous généralisons l'opérateur de collision de Boltzmann modélisant les collisions binaires particule–particule au cadre quantique, en utilisant un principe non-local de minimisation d'entropie quantique.
