SOLUTION OF THE ONE-GROUP TIME-DEPENDENT NEUTRON TRANSPORT EQUATION IN AN INFINITE MEDIUM BY POLYNOMIAL RECONSTRUCTION.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The numerical solution to the one-group time-dependent neutron transport equation in infinite plane, spherical and cylindrical geometries is obtained via an expansion in Legendre polynomials. The computation features general anisotropic scattering, isotropic and beam sources and a power law time-dependent cross section variation. Results for test problems are compared with previously obtained numerical solutions and with the diffusion approximation.
