[16] This fact should prove useful in a systematic discussion of the existence and uniqueness of solutions of the Fokker-Planck equation.
[17] In the 20 moment approximation the presence of the force F modifies Eq. (5.14) of reference 13 for Sigk by introducing the extra term -Fipgkm to the right-hand side. Clearly this contribution must vanish in the 13 moment approximation since pkk = 0.

[23] Actually, in the calculation of heat conductivity by Zwang et al. cited in footnote 11, g0 is considered to be a function of temperature and pressure and consideration is limited to stationary states of uniform pressure.

[25] This agrees with Lebowitz’s Eq. (5.5) when use is made of his Eq. (5.15) to identify {\(\eta\)} as -{\(\mu\)}kT.
[26] We note, however, that the Fokker-Planck equation associates different relaxation times with the kinetic and the potential parte of the heat flux; i.e., the relaxation times are {\(\tau\)}l = 1l{\(\zeta\)} wherelis the order of the Hermite polynomial in velocity. On the other hand, in reference 23 and in this section only a single relaxation for heat flow is assumed.
