Title: TRANSPORT IN THE HEAVY FERMION SUPERCONDUCTOR UPT3

We report new theoretical results and analysis for the transport properties of superconducting UPt{sub 3}based on the leading models for the pairing symmetry. We use Fermi surface data and the measured inelastic scattering rate to show that the low-temperature thermal conductivity and transverse sound attenuation in the A and B phase of UPt3 are in excellent agreement with pairing states belonging to the two-dimensional orbital E{sub 2u} representation.
