In 1966, Woon Siong Gan coined/invented the name transport theory in condensed matter physics. Transport theory was previously used only in neutron transport theory for reactors design. Transport theory has come a long way. It is today the key foundation of theoretical design of materials. In 1971, the international journal Transport Theory & Statistical Physics was launched by Taylor & Francis. Transport theory is the theory of transport properties. Transport theories have singularity behaviour at the point of phase transition. Hence transport properties can lead to the invention of new materials. This is known as the transport theory approach to phase transition.This is a new approach proposed by me after the Landau and Ginzburg 's phenomenology theory of spontaneous symmetry breaking. to phase transition. Transport theory also played a role in the founding of the field of condensed matter physics. because of its contribution to phase transition. Transport theory can be classified into classical transport theory and quantum transport theory. Transport theory also has an important status in statistical physics, in classical statistical mechanics and quantum statistical mechanics. Due to its various important developments throughout the years, it is meaningful to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year.
