This book deals with neutral particle flow in a stochastic mixture consisting of two or more immiscible fluids. After giving an introduction to linear kinetic theory and particle transport in a nonstochastic setting, it discusses recent formulations for particle flow through a material whose properties are only known in a statistical sense. The mixing descriptions considered are both Markovian and renewal statistics. Various models and exact results are presented for the ensemble average of the intensity in such stochastic mixtures. In the Markovian case, the underlying kinetic description is the integro-differential transport equation, whereas for renewal statistics the natural starting point is the purely integral formulation of transport theory.

( This text examines the propagation of thermal radiation...)
This text examines the propagation of thermal radiation through a fluid and its effects on the hydrodynamics of fluid motion. Its detailed discussion, derived from first principles, fully displays all of the equations pertinent to the specialized field of radiation hydrodynamics. Geared toward graduate-level students, it will also benefit researchers engaged in radiative transfer and radiation hydrodynamic work. The first chapter introduces the fundamental concepts required to formulate a kinetic description of electromagnetic energy transport. Chapter II derives in various forms and geometries the equation of transfer containing the basic physics needed for most work in radiation hydrodynamics. Subsequent chapters consider approximate formulations of radiative transfer and the incorporation of additional physical effects--specifically, polarization, refraction, and dispersion--and the relativistic effects of fluid motion. Chapter VII offers a brief introduction to the microscopic physics associated with the equation of transfer, followed by an extensive survey of the description of Compton and inverse Compton scattering as it enters the equation of transfer. The final chapter presents a hydrodynamic description of the fluid, including effects due to the presence of the radiation field. The text concludes with an appendix on the Lorentz transformation of the equation of transfer.
