Abstract

Relativistic thermodynamics is treated from the point of view of kinetic theory. It is shown that the generalized J\"uttner distribution suggested in [1] is compatible with kinetic equilibrium. The requirement of compatibility of kinetic and thermodynamic equilibrium reveals several generalizations of the Gibbs relation where the velocity field is an independent thermodynamic variable.
