Abstract : The path-integral successive-collision methods is extended and applied to the set of linear Boltzmann equations for a very general initial- and boundary-value multi-swarm problem allowing for volume production, reactive collisions, and various particle-surface interaction processes. The complete formal solution is given, and its convergence is inferred from a simple physical argument. (Author)
