Radiation transport in inhomogeneous media
Abstract
For disordered spatially inhomogeneous media with a large number of inhomogeneities, the radiation transport equation cannot be solved for a given medium organization. In this case, the only possibility of a theoretical analysis is to compute the mathematical expectation (mean) and moments of a solution to the radiation transport equation by averaging over an ensemble of medium organizations. The computation of the mean involves the problem of homogenization for disordered media. The problems of the averaging of the stochastic radiation transport equation and homogenization for disordered structures are treated using general relationships of the theory of multiple scattering.
