Abstract : It is possible to write the Boltzmann equation as an integral equation whenever the scattering and the source are isotropic. To do this we return to equation 150 (report M3336) in which F(x,v,mu) is expressed as an integral over F sub o and S, the source distribution. Since we assume S is isotropic, we may put S(x,v,mu) = S sub o (x,v) /2: where S sub o is the total number of neutrons produced per cu cm per second. As it stands equation 150 is not quite an integral equation because the total F(x,v) appears outside, and both functions are unknown.
