Transition Regime Models for Radiative Transport

David Levermore
University of Maryland
Department of Mathematics

This talk will survey some recent advances in the develpoment of transition regime models from kinetic equations. Specifically, the class of stationary-balance models models will be presented in the context of linear monoenergetic radiative transport. These models share elements with both traditional moment closures and expansions. They include a natural framwork for developing boundary conditions. It will be shown that these models have a dissipation relation that is consistent with the underlying transport equation.
