Abstract:

A novel, simplified approach to particle transport in slabs is given. The number of particles transmitted and reflected by a slab of finite thickness is obtained as a function of the number of collisions the particles receive. This orders-of-scattering solution is facilitated by an invariant imbedding approach which leads to a set of integral recursion relations between transmitted and reflected particle currents. Solutions are given for both one- dimensional and three-dimensional transport in slabs for an arbitrary anisotropic scattering law.
