The Eleventh International Transport Theory Conference and Symposium in honor of the sixty-fifth birthday of Kenneth Case and the sixtieth birthday of Paul Zweifel was held in Blacksburg, Virginia, during May 22-26, 1989, on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). This volume consists of a selection of the invited papers delivered at the Conference, and represents a cross section of the research currently being carried out in the field of transport theory. The volume is divided into two sections. The Symposium lectures are intended each to summarize an important aspect of transport theory, as well as to present timely new results of the author's research interest. The Conference lectures are contributions of each author on his current research. As has been the custom in this series of conferences, each lecturer was invited to participate by the organizing committee of the Conference: W. Greenberg, Virginia Tech, chairman; V. Boffi, Universita di Firenze; N. Corngold, California Institute of Technology; B. Ganapol, University of Arizona; N. McCormick, University of Washington; P. Nelson, Texas Tech; G. Pomraning, University of California, Los Angeles. The Eleventh International Transport Theory Conference was funded by generous con tributions from Science Applications International Corporation, R. Beyster, president, and from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Conference participants, and, we believe, researchers in this and related areas, are indebted to these organizations. We would like to thank Lamberto Rondoni, in the graduate program at Virginia Tech, for proofreading manuscripts of all the Italian contributors.
