The direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method has, in recent years, become widely used for engineering and scientific studies of gas flows that involve low densities or very small physical dimensions. The method is a direct physical simulation of the motion of representative molecules, rather than a numerical solution of the equations that provide a mathematical model of the flow. The computations are no longer expensive and the period since the original 1976 publication of this work has seen enormous improvements in the molecular models, the procedures, and the implementation strategies. This greatly expanded new version of the author's seminal Molecular Gas Dynamics will be considered the definitive text on the subject. It includes all the refinements and research since the earlier book. The molecular theory of gas flows is developed from first principles and is extended to cover new models and procedures. The method and typical applications are illustrated through 13 demonstration programs that are listed in FORTRAN source code on a companion website. All numerical results in the book have been obtained from these programs. The applications range from verification cases for simple homogeneous gases to complex multidimensional flows of gas mixtures and chemically reacting flows.

`... the fact that all the numerical results can be obtained simply by running code supplied with the text is of benefit to the professional engineers and physicists to whom this book will appeal.' Contemporary Physics `This is an updated and very substantially expanded version of the author's 1976 monograph. It reflects the many developments which have occurred in the art of modelling gas flows from an essentially microscopic point of view .........This monograph will surely be used as a reference work in its field for the time to come.' Monatshefte fur Mathematik Vol 122 No 4 1996 `An updated and very substantially expanded version of the author's 1976 monographs.....Added to the volume is a diskette with a number of Fortran-Routines which will allow the user to get acquaintance and experiment with the methods without having to invest much effort into code development. This monograph will surely be used as a reference work in its field for the time to come' Monatschefte fur Mathematik Vol 122 No 4 1996
