This is sometimes a good approximation to the interactions of electrons with noble gases. Another theoretical approach, most relevant to the fully ionized fusion regime, is the Boltzmann-Vlasov model, in which the governing equation describes a high temperature plasma for which the collisional mean free path is much larger than all of the characteristic lengths of the system. This model may be useful in industrial plasmas operated at low pressures, below 1 mTorr, or in some astrophysical or geophysical plasmas.

Although some recently developed high intensity glow discharges can have an ionization fraction above lo%, in most industrial plasmas the degree of ionization is generally quite low, and binary Coulomb collisions usually play an insignificant role in determining the transport properties and the microscopic behavior of the plasma. The dominant collisional process is between charged particles and the neutral background gas. A gas in such a collisional regime is referred to as a Lorentzian gas. 4.

While this condition is satisfied by some thermal plasmas used for materials processing, such as welding arcs for example, it is not satisfied by most plasmas of industrial interest. Kinetic equilibrium is a much less stringent condition, which allows energy flows in the medium and does not require that the medium radiate like a black body. Kinetic equilibrium requires only that the particles have interacted among themselves sufficiently to achieve a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution of velocities.
