Computational Methods in Transport Theory (Part I of II)

The analytical solution of transport equations are difficult to obtain, thus computational methods take on an important role. These numerical methods nevertheless can cause difficulties if they are not used with care. This is the case for example with multigrid algorithms or least square formulations. In this symposium the speakers concentrate on recent areas of development for numerical algorithms for the solution of these equations. They will present efficient algorithms and point out some of the difficulties.
