A reexamination of the application of invariance techniques to plane Couette-flow problems and a presentation of several different approaches to the derivation of the invariant-imbedding equations. It is shown how both discrete and continuous versions of the original Boltzmann formulation. A reexamination of the application of invariance techniques to plane Couette-flow problems and a presentation of several different approaches to the derivation of the invariant-imbedding equations. It is shown how both linear and nonlinear collision operators may be considered, for both discrete and continuous versions of the original Boltzmann formulation. 24 pp.
