# Local Hilbert expansion for the Boltzmann equation

• We revisit the classical work of Caflisch [1] for compressible Euler limit of the Boltzmann equation. By using a new $L^{2}\mbox{-}L^{\infty }$ method, we prove the validity of the Hilbert expansion before shock formations in the Euler system with moderate temperature variation.
