An application of the ideas of the inertial confinement fusion process in the case of particles interacting at high energy is investigated. A possibility of the gas–liquid transition in the gas is considered using different approaches. In particular, a shock wave description of interactions between particles is studied and a self-similar solution of Euler’s equation is discussed. Additionally, the Boltzmann equation is solved for a self-consistent field (Vlasov’s equation) in the linear approximation for the case of a gas under external pressure and the corresponding change of the Knudsen number of the system is calculated.
