In this paper, whose purpose is pedagogic, we discuss some distinctive features of neutron transport theory. The linearized transport equation is similar to those met in theories of gas dynamics and radiative transfer. We describe the analytical techniques that have been most successful in analyzing the neutron equation. Among these are: The method of separated solutions (in space and angle co-ordinates), and the construction of velocity-dependent collision models.
