A fully discretized solution for Poiseuille flow in a one-dimensional channel is presented. Unlike previous semi-analytical methods, such as the Analytical Discrete-Ordinates (ADO) or the FN methods, which have been specifically designed to avoid spatial discretization error, no analytical advantage is assumed. Instead, the solution is "mined" in a process where each discrete approximation is an element in a sequence of solutions whose convergence to the solution is accelerated. This process leads most straightforwardly to high quality benchmark results for use in algorithm verification with a minimum of theoretical and numerical complexity.
