Abstract. The Boltzmann limit conjecture of Grad is discussed in
general and proved for the Lorentz gas case (where the Boltzmann
equation is linear). This is a reprint of an unpublished preprint of
1972, with one footnote added, one postscript (to quote the Lanford
theorem), and improved with language editing. I reprint it in this form,
as it has been quoted by other authors in later papers. The original
preprint was commissioned for a book that eventually was not published.
