The functional of receptor sensitivity of a territory
to the disposition of emission sources can adequately be calculated
with the use of the mathematical apparatus of adjoint equations. The
solutions of these equations allow one to determine the action of
pollutants in the form of aerosols or harmful gaseous impurities on
the environment and human health. Examples of calculation of the sensitivity
functional on the basis of solution of adjoint equations have been
presented. Mathematical models for the typical equations on optimum
placement of industrial plants have been formulated. An interpretation
of the results obtained has been given.
