Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The properties of several eigenvalues of the Boltzmann equation for neutron transport were examined previously by the authors (see Nucl. Sci. Eng., vol.60, p.97, 1976). A new eigenvalue is defined in the present work. Its physical meaning is clarified and some of its features are illustrated.
