Transport theory
by Symposium in applied mathematics of the american mathematical society and the society for industrial and applied mathematics(
Book
)
12 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume is a collection of the methods and results of a number of experts in the field of transport theory. There are four main parts: analytical Neutron Transport; Numerical Neutron Transport; Stochastic Aspects; Kinetic Theory and Plasma Transport. Each part contains four expository accounts of recent developments. These papers provide an excellent and comprehensive survey of the current state of transport theory and should serve as a stimulus for research in this field
