question re a mass transport phenomenon

I was at a math seminar, discussing the Boltzman
mass transport equation. There was a scaling
factor, as a parameter, which varied 0...1, and
the speaker said "a = 1, is the kinetic regime,
while a = 0 is the diffusion regime." What does
that mean? The point was to characterize the
transition region in between.

Later, someone asked about "isotropizing vs.
thermalizing" (or something like that).
