Abstract
The current state-of-the-art in Aerothermodynamics demands an important degree of complexity at which several theoretical approaches interact. In this context, Kinetic theory plays a major role as a thorough representation of the microscopic phenomena, providing the connexion between local and fluid descriptions. This relationship is accomplished by the calculation of the thermo-physic properties of the system, mainly on regions under large gradients and fields. It is in this frame where the classical numerical schemes may fail describing non-linear effects or disparate initial or boundary conditions. Integral or semi-analytical methods based upon short-time propagators, have supplied a new physically meaningful perspective into the numerical algorithms for kinetic and fluid theories. For this method, no stability or convergence criteria constrains the time advancing scheme. In this communication we briefly review the method foundations presenting some results.
