Abstract:

A complete mathematical definition of an abstract linear transport process is given in terms of a new axiomatic system. After several preliminary theorems are proven, the basic algebraic equations relating the transport operators are derived, and the semigroup properties of these equations are indicated. These algebraic equations are then used to derive the standard differential equations describing a transport process. The generalized invariant-imbedding equations are used to describe an energy-dependent, neutron- transport process.
