Abstract

We consider a time-dependent problem of photon transport in an interstellar cloud with a point photon source modeled by a Dirac δ functional. The existence of a unique distributional solution to this problem is established by using the theory of continuous semigroups of operators on locally convex spaces coupled with a constructive approach for producing spaces of generalized functions.
