Abstract

Boltzmann kinetic equations governing energy spectra distribution of fast particles in nuclear inducedplasma are defined and presented for continuous fissionable plasma interacting with neutrons.The formation of electrons energy distribution crucially depends on energy distribution of fissionfragments and cannot be treated separately and their distributions self consistently affect on electronsenergy spectra time evolution and their degradation in space. So the self-consistent system of Boltzmannkinetic equations for both electrons and fission fragments are proposed and discussed for helium-3plasma. Primary electrons spectra analytical expressions are derived and the first order approximationpresented on the assumption that energy spectra of protons and tritium nuclei have monochromatic energyspectra created by helium-3 fissioning in neutron flux. Any gas irradiated by highly energetic particlesdemonstrates its modified chemical abilities as well as a great variety of energy transformation channelsincluding the selection of some definite chemical reactions leading to innovative transformation intechnology [1-5]
