Abstract:

A theory of transport phenomena in a nearly homogeneous system of interacting electrons and photons is developed. A hierarchy of equations is derived which couples the various particle and photon distribution functions. The hierarchy is truncated in a physically intuitive way so that a closed set of equations is obtained. The truncated set of equations is then solved in various orders of approximation making use of the well-known Bogoluibov assumption concerning the rates of relaxation of correlations and distributions. There results a set of coupled equations for the particle and photon distributions. Terms in the resulting equations correspond to various physical processes such as shielded electronelectron scattering, bremsstrahlung, Thomson scattering, etc. Author
