A method for evaluating Kholin's solution, specialized to the case of isotropic scattering, is presented. A series of integrals are evaluated numerically by either a recursion relation or a Chebyshev-Gauss quadrature approximation. The neutron density found by this method serves as an analytic ″benchmark″ to which other solutions to the time-dependent transport equation can be compared. A new closed form of the solution is also derived.
