Some simple remarks on the basis of transport theory
Our discussion has been confined to a very simple class of transport problems. Apart from the exclusion of dense or strongly coupled systems, we have excluded the possibility of long-range interactions, as in plasmas and other dense systems, all cases of spatial inhomogeneity. Nevertheless the limited range of problems gave us an opportunity of examining some general basic principles, which are applicable much more generally than the particular problems considered.
