The initial value problem for the nonlinear Boltzmann equation is studied. For the existence of global solutions near a Maxwellian, it is important to obtain a desired decay estimate for the linearized equation. In previous works, such a decay estimate was obtained by a method based on the spectral theory for the linearized Boltzmann operator. The aim of this paper is to show the same decay estimate by a new method. Our method is the so-called energy method and makes use of a Ljapunov function for the ordinary differential equation obtained by taking the Fourier transform. Our Ljapunov function is constructed explicitly by using some property of the equations for thirteen moments.
