In the introductory part of this chapter, we wrote down the grammatical equivalents for the various moments, namely the density, momentum, and energy, and also defined the fluxes accordingly. Now the time has come to make use of the third one of these – the second moment. Take the moment of the Vlasov equation in such a way as to form a scalar. That is, take the moment 3) The equations of motion in tensor form provide the simplest way of seeing how to generalize the virial theorem. If the stress tensor is Tij , then xi ∂ ∂pvi + T ∂t ∂x j ij = − xi ρ ∂Φ ∂xi Therefore, we have ∂2 ∂t2 xi xi dM − 2 vi vi dM + Tij x j n i dS − δij Tij dx = Φρdx Here dM = ρdx is the mass.

This result can be generalized by taking the products with off-diagonal components (x j ). Now the surface term is also explicitly included so you can see the effects of boundary conditions on the virial theorem result. 15 16 1 The Equations of Fluid Motion of LVlasov with v2 = vi vi . 27) The velocity is again composed of mean and random components. Remember that we are going to take the integrals only over the stochastic components. First, if we separate these components out, it will be easier to see what’s going on.
