The theory of Chapman and Enskog, describing work on dense gases, quantum theory of collisions .

The theory of Chapman and Enskog, describing work on dense gases, quantum theory of collisions and the theory of conduction and diffusion in ionized gases in the presence of electric and magnetic fields, is extended in the later chapters. This reissue will therefore be of value to mathematicians, theoretical physicists and chemical engineers interested in gas-theory and its applications.

This classic book, now reissued in paperback, presents a detailed account of the mathematical theory of viscosity, thermal conduction, and diffusion in non-uniform gases based on the solution of the Maxwell-Boltzmann equations. The theory of Chapman and Enskog, describing work on dense gases, quantum theory of collisions, and the theory of conduction and diffusion in ionized gases in the presence of electric and magnetic fields is also included in the later chapters. This reprint of the third edition, first published in 1970, includes revisions that take account of extensions of the theory to fresh molecular models and of new methods used in discussing dense gases and plasmas.

It is well written and organized monograph on the Boltzmann equation. One may feel some difficulty to read this book, due to the vector and tensor convention, which is due to the relatively young history of vector-tensor mathematics. Once you adapt to the notation given in this book you may feel the power of systematic approach.

Chapman and Cowling's outstanding work for kinetic thoery.
This book is regarded as a Classic in this field. However,
the notations are not so farmiliar to me. So I was somewhat perplexed at first.
more introductory texts are,
J. Jeans ' An introduction to the kinetic theory of gases'
E.H. Kennard 'Kinetic theory of gases with an introduction to statistical mechanics'
