Abstract: The initial value problem for the spatially homogeneous inelastic uniformly heated Boltzmann equation is considered. Some stochastic numerical schemes for this problem are discussed and some numerical examples including the computation of tails of the distribution function are shown. A new weak formulation of the equation based on the Fourier transform which is suitable for deterministic numerics is presented.
