Transport equation for the function of the neutron density in a non-multiplying medium is discussed provided the initial distribution is given. The medium and source characteristics are considered generally to be functions of time. Existence and uniqueness for the initial value problem is proved and some previous results of the author are generalized. Besides, some consequences for the discussion of the behaviour of Knudsen's gas in a thermal bath are shown.
