Abstract:

A probabilistic discussion of one-dimensional multitype neutron transport processes is given, and the invariant imbedding technique is applied to the generating functions of the emitted neutrons. A system of simultaneous partial differential equations for these generating functions is then derived. The well-known Ricatti equation for the expected reflected flux follows from these differential equations.
