Abstract

The constant collision frequency charged particle transport model for general separable scattering and ionization kernels is generalized for the determination of the spatially uniform electrical current density and the electrical conductivity to include a time-dependent electric field, and a constant magnetic field. It is shown that the conductivity is independent of the assumed velocity distribution of both scattering and ionization kernels and the source.
