Generation of the Maxwellian Inflow DistributionJournal of Computational Physics (2006)
This paper presents several efficient, exact acceptance–rejection methods for generating the Maxwellian inflow distribution, the velocity distribution of gas molecules crossing a plane. The new methods are demonstrated to be computationally faster and more accurate than the schemes commonly used for open boundary conditions in particle simulations.
