Boltzmann H-theorem: Approaching Equilibrium Model 

The Approaching Equilibrium model computationally tests the Boltzmann model using a 2D virtual gas. According to the Boltzmann model, the velocity-distribution of the gas changes with time until it takes the form of the Maxwell-Boltzmann (M-B) distribution, which is stable. The model shows the the motion and the interactions of the gas-particles as well the time evolutionm of the velocity distribution.
