Some elements of history of Kinetic Theory (up to 2001) from the webpage of Dave Levermore.
Sources: Some parts of these lecture notes owe a lot to two sets of hand-written lecture notes on kinetic equations written by Laure Saint-Raymond and Laurent Desvillettes, as well as to the lecture notes available online of G. Allaire and F. Golse on transport and diffusion processes. They also inspire from the classical books of R. Glassey, of C. Cercignani, and of C. Cercignani – R. Illner – M. Pulvirenti, as well as from various recent research papers. Many thanks to Otis Chodosh, who typewrote a first latex version of these notes.
