Stochastic theory built for zeropower nuclear reactors. The equations were obtained for the multidimensional generating and characteristic functions describing the probabilistic behavior in time branching process with several types of particles and migration. Branching process is a mathematical model of in neutron multiplication assumed in a nuclear reactor with an external neutron source.
