Description: This chapter presents an overview of basic radiation damage theory, including older and more recent models, to provide framework, within which radiation effects, such as void swelling, can be rationalized. A complete review of the literature is not attempted, but sufficient references are given to provide a decent introduction to a quite large number of publications in the field. Many derivations are different from and, in our view, more elegant than in the original publications. The work is directed to both theoreticians and experimentalists, and, especially, to those passionate individuals who are going to take the radiation damage theory (RDT) to the future.
