ABSTRACT. The BBGKY hierarchy of equations for a particle interacting with an ideal gas is investigated. Principal properties of its solutions are disclosed, as exact identities which connect probability distribution of path of the particle, its derivatives in respect to gas density and irreducible many-particle correlations between gas molecules and the path. They show that all the correlations always give equally important contributions to evolution of the path distribution, and therefore the exact theory does not reduce to the classical kinetics even at arbitrary small gas density.
