Ghost effect by curvature

We consider the Boltzmann equation for a gas between two rotating coaxial cylinders, and we study the behaviour of the gas in the limit in which the Knudsen number k and the inverse of radius (the curvature) of the inner cylinder tend to zero simultaneously, keeping the difference of the radii of the two cylinders fixed. The Mach number goes to zero as k_a, a
