In this note we provide a new geometric lower bound on the so-called Grad's number of a domain Ω in terms of how far Ω is from being axisymmetric. Such an estimate is important in the study of the trend to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation for dilute gases.
Mathematics Subject Classification: 49Q20 / 49J40
Key words: Grad's number / Korn-type inequality / axisymmetry of the domain / trend to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation
