    Abstract:
    We study the behavior of solutions of the one-dimensional Broadwell model of a discrete velocity gas. The particles have velocity ±1 or 0; the total mass is assumed finite. We show that at large time the interaction is negligible and the solution tends to a free state in which all the mass travels outward at speed 1. The limiting behavior is stable with respect to the initial state. No smallness assumptions are made. © 1985 Springer-Verlag.
