FIG. 1.

Plot of the (reduced) self-diffusion coefficient (α)/(1) as a function of the coefficient of restitution α as given by the first Sonine approximation (dashed line), the second Sonine approximation (solid line), and Monte Carlo simulations (symbols). Here, (1) is the elastic value of the self-diffusion coefficient consistently obtained in each approximation. The left panel is for hard disks ( = 2) while the right panel is for hard spheres ( = 3).
