Mathematical treatment of the homogeneous Boltzmann equation for
Maxwellian molecules in the presence of singular kernels

Emanuele Dolera
This paper proves the existence of weak solutions to the spatially homogeneous Boltzmann equation for Maxwellian molecules, when the initial data are chosen from the space of all Borel probability measures on R^3 with finite second moments and the (angular) collision kernel satisfies a very weak cutoff condition. Conservation of momentum and energy is also proved for these weak solutions, without resorting to any boundedness of the entropy.
