Boltzmann legacy and wealth distribution
We briefly review results on nonlinear kinetic equation of Boltzmann type which describe the evolution of wealth in a simple agents market. The mathematical structure of the underlying kinetic equations allows to use well-known techniques of wide use in kinetic theory of rarefied gases to obtain information on the process of relaxation to a stationary profile, as well as to identify simple interaction rules which are responsible of the formation of Pareto tails.
