A jump-diffusion process along with a particle scheme is devised as an accurate and efficient particle solution to the Boltzmann equation. The proposed process (hereafter Gamma-Boltzmann model) is devised to match the evolution of all moments up to the heat fluxes while attaining the correct Prandtl number of 2/3 for monatomic gas with Maxwellian molecular potential. This approximation model is not subject to issues associated with the previously developed Fokker-Planck (FP) based models; such as having wrong Prandtl number, limited applicability, or requiring estimation of higher-order moments. An efficient particle solution to the proposed Gamma-Boltzmann model is devised and compared computationally to the direct simulation Monte Carlo and the cubic FP model [M. H. Gorji, M. Torrilhon, and P. Jenny, J. Fluid Mech. 680 (2011): 574-601] in several test cases including Couette flow and lid-driven cavity. The simulation results indicate that the Gamma-Boltzmann model yields a good approximation of the Boltzmann equation, provides a more accurate solution compared to the cubic FP in the limit of a low number of particles, and remains computationally feasible even in dense regimes.
