Abstract:

The time-dependent neutral particle transport problem of an isotropic Greens function source in homogeneous, isotropic, spherically symmetric media is examined using the infinite set of time-dependent P-N equations and integral transform space for the all angle flux corresponding to the P-N approximation of order N are determined to order P-9, and demonstrate a multiple wave nature upon inversion. An examination of the set of P-N solutions leads to the development of the complete P-infinity continued fraction in transform space. Modified author abstract
