Radiative Transport in a Periodic Structure

We derive radiative transport equations for solutions of a Schrödinger equation in a periodic structure with small random inhomogeneities. We use systematically the Wigner transform and the Bloch wave expansion. The streaming part of the radiative transport equations is determined entirely by the Bloch spectrum, and the scattering part by the random fluctuations.
