The text is a self-contained, comprehensive introduction to the theory of hydrodynamic lattice gases. Lattice-gas cellular automata are discrete models of fluids. Identical particles hop from site to site on a regular lattice, obeying simple conservative scattering rules when they collide. Remarkably, at a scale larger than the lattice spacing, these discrete models simulate the Navier-Stokes equations of fluid mechanics. This book addresses three important aspects of lattice gases. First, it shows how such simple idealised microscopic dynamics give rise to isotropic macroscopic hydrodynamics. Second, it details how the simplicity of the lattice gas provides for equally simple models of fluid phase separation, hydrodynamic interfaces, and multiphase flow. Lastly, it illustrates how lattice-gas models and related lattice-Boltzmann methods have been used to solve problems in applications as diverse as flow through porous media, phase separation, and interface dynamics. Many exercises and references are included.

'… this book gives a very good review of the main results obtained in the field of lattice-gas models. It will help newcomers to get started. Many of the results shown in the book are impresssive and should attract people who commonly use standard approaches.' P. Lallemand, European Journal of MechanicsDescrizione del libro:
A self-contained, comprehensive introduction to momentum-conserving lattice gases, showing how they give rise to isotropic macroscopic hydrodynamics, and how they lead to simple models of fluid phase separation, hydrodynamic interfaces, multiphase flow, and flow through porous media. Many exercises are included.
