Diffusion near an interface via onsager-type equations

  • V. Molinari
  • D. Mostacci


Onsager-type transport equations, as were derived in a previous paper by the authors, are applied to the diffusion of test particles near the interface of a scattering medium with a perfect absorber. Temperature and density profiles are obtained for different types of scattering cross-section.
