Hsieh, S.-H., and V.M. Canuto, 1981: Scale covariant gravitation. V. Kinetic theory. Astrophys. J., 248, 790-800, doi:10.1086/159203.

In this paper we construct a scale covariant kinetic theory for particles and photons. The mathematical framework of the theory is given by the tangent bundle of a Weyl manifold. The Liouville equation is then derived. Solutions corresponding to equilibrium distributions are presented and shown to yield thermodynamic results identical to the ones obtained previously.
