**Relativistic Kinetic Theory: An Introduction**

by Olivier Sarbach, Thomas Zannias

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 30

**Description**:

We present a brief introduction to the relativistic kinetic theory of gases with emphasis on the underlying geometric and Hamiltonian structure of the theory. Our formalism starts with a discussion on the tangent bundle of a Lorentzian manifold of arbitrary dimension...
