Abstract：As one of the main governing equations in kinetic theory, the Boltzmann equation is widely utilized in aerospace, microscopic flow, etc. Its high-resolution simulation is crucial in these related areas. However, due to the Boltzmann equation's high dimensionality, high-resolution simulations are often difficult to achieve numerically. The moment method which Grad first proposed in 1949 is among popular numerical methods to achieve efficient high-resolution simulations. We can derive the governing equations in the moment method by taking moments on both sides of the Boltzmann equation, which effectively reduces the dimensionality of the problem. However, one of the main challenges is that it leads to an unclosed moment system, and closure is needed to obtain a closed moment system. It is truly an art in designing closures for moment systems and has been a significant research field in kinetic theory. Other than the traditional human designs of closures, the machine learning-based approach has attracted much attention lately. In this work, we propose a machine learning-based method to derive a moment closure model for the Boltzmann-BGK equation. In particular, the closure relation is approximated by a carefully designed deep neural network that possesses desirable physical invariances, i.e., the Galilean invariance, reflecting invariance, and scaling invariance, inherited from the original Boltzmann-BGK equation. Numerical simulations on the smooth and discontinuous initial condition problem, Sod shock tube problem, and the shock structure problems demonstrate satisfactory numerical performances of the proposed invariance preserving neural closure method.
