The velocity distribution function of particles whose velocities exceed the thermal velocity cannot be described by a Maxwell distribution. This chapter shows that this part of the velocity distribution is described by an exponential function which decays significantly slower than a Maxwell distribution.

Keywords:   Maxwell distribution, velocity distribution function, exponential function, granular gas
