Title:Induced Compton Scattering Effects in Radiation Transport Approximations

Abstract:In this thesis the method of characteristics is used to solve radiation transport problems with induced Compton scattering effects included.
The methods used to date have only addressed problems in which either induced Compton scattering is ignored, or problems in which linear scattering is ignored. Also, problems which include both induced Compton scattering and spatial effects have not been considered previously. The introduction of induced scattering into the radiation transport equation results in a quadratic nonlinearity.
Methods are developed to solve problems in which both linear and nonlinear Compton scattering are important. Solutions to scattering problems are found for a variety of initial photon energy distributions.
