- A calculation was made of the flux of secondary positrons above 100 MeV expected for various propagation models. The models investigated were the leaky box or homogeneous model, a disk halo diffusion model, a dynamical halo model, and the closed galaxy model. In each case the parameters of these models were adjusted for agreement with the observed secondary or primary ratios and Be 10 abundance. The positron flux predicted for these models was compared with the available data. The possibility of a primary positron component was considered.
