Abstract. We study the evolution of a quantum particle interacting with a random
potential in the low density limit (BoltzmannGrad). The phase space density of the quantum evolution defined through the Husimi function converges weakly to a linear Boltzmann equation with collision kernel given by the full quantum
scattering cross section.
