Abstract: This paper reviews earlier work of A. Gorban and I. Karlin for the exact summation of the Chapman-Enskog expansion for the linearized Grad's 13-moment equations. One consequence of their exact summation, not noted in their papers, is that the exact summation yields a nonlocal version of Korteweg's theory of capillarity, which has proved to be useful as an admissibility criterion in gas dynamics.
