We discuss some mathematical and computational problems relevant to the solutions of both linear and non-linear integral equations arising in radiation transport. By means of a functional-operator approach, analytic solutions for the FEL (Free Electron Laser) integral equations are found in terms of Bessel-Clifford functions. As for applications of this method to non-linear equations, the same technique allows us to obtain an efficient yet simple algorithm for the numerical solution of the Ambartsumian-Chandrasekhar H-equation corresponding to a Neumann-series expansion. © 1994 Società Italiana di Fisica.
