    The term of the receptor sensitivity of a territory to siting accommodation of mission sources can be effectively calculated by means of a mathematical apparatus of conjugate problems. Solutions of conjugate equations make it possible to determine the effect of pollution in the form of aerosols or harmful gaseous impurity on the environment and human health. Examples of calculation of the sensitivity term by solving a conjugate problem are given. Mathematical models for typical problems of optimal siting of enterprises are formulated and interpretation of the results obtained is given.
