An approach to lattice Boltzmann simulation is
described, which makes a direct connection between
classical kinetic theory and contemporary lattice
Boltzmann modeling methods. This approach can lead to
greater accuracy, improved numerical stability and
significant reductions in computational needs, while
giving a new philosophical point of view to lattice
Bolzmann calculations for a large range of applications.
