Abstract: We apply the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method, developed originally to calculate rarefied gas dynamical problems, to study the gas flow in an accretion disc in a close binary system. The method involves viscosity and thermal conduction automatically, and can thus simulate turbulent viscosity (α viscosity).
