Guy R. McNamara and Gianluigi Zanetti (1988)

Use of the Boltzmann Equation to Simulate Lattice-Gas Automata , Phys. Rev. Lett., 61, 2332-2335

This paper proposes a novel way to deal with the statistical noise of the Cellular Automata approach by replacing the boolean variables (which represent particles) by real numbers on each lattice site. The results are encouraging because the computational needs were very much decreased while the accuracy remained very good. This was the first paper, to our knowledge, dealing with the lattice Boltzmann method.
