Abstract

We present Boltzmann and Monte Carlo models of positron and electron transport in water, in the vapour and liquid states, which are based on measured and calculated cross section data that has been compiled into "complete" cross section sets for both positrons and electrons. The cross section measurements, transport theory, and implications for the study of charged particle transport in soft matter are discussed.
