ABSTRACT: In this work we report the state of art of particle transport theory in stochastic media, discussing in detail the derivation of the atomic mix and the Levermore-Pomraning models. We consider time independent stochastic transport in a randomly mixed binary medium. A Monte Carlo procedure is used to generate a physical realization of the statistics, and for this realization we numerically solve the transport equation, using the LTSN formulation. The ensemble-averaged solution, as well as the standard deviation, is obtained by averaging a large number of such calculations. Then, we compare this solution with those obtained for the atomic mix and the Levermore-Pomraning models.
