Abstract

We deduce the most general nonlinear kinetic equation that describes the low-density limit of general Feller processes for systems of random numbers of classical particles with interaction, collisions, fragmentation and coagulation. This is done by studying the limiting (as ε → 0) evolution of Feller processes on $\bigcup_{n = 0}^\infty X^n$ with X = Rd or X = Zd described by generators of the form ε-1k = 0K εk B(k), K ∈ N, where B(k) are the generators of k-nary interaction, whose general structure is also described in the paper.
