  • We study the Boltzmann equation near a global Maxwellian in the case of bounded domains. We consider the boundary conditions to be either specular reflections or Maxwellian diffusion. Starting from the reference work of Guo [21] in $L_{x,v}^\infty \left( {{{\left( {1 + |v|} \right)}^\beta }{e^{|v{|^2}/4}}} \right)$, we prove existence, uniqueness, continuity and positivity of solutions for less restrictive weights in the velocity variable; namely, polynomials and stretch exponentials. The methods developed here are constructive.
