Whither existence theory?

Abstract

It is suggested that in certain cases the Fredholm alternative theorem can be used to simplify existence proofs in time-independent linear transport theory. Existing results in abstract kinetic equations theory are generalized as to encompass polarized light transfer as well as certain inhomogeneous finite slab media.
