The Boltzmann equation for the single particle distribution function for a heavy ion beam penetrating matter is solved. Assume rotational and translational invariance, plane symmetry and time independence. A Hermite and Legendre polynomial expansion of the distribution function is made in the configuration and angular coordinates, respectively. A code for numerically solving the integral equations for the energy dependent expansion coefficients has been written and solved explicityly for the case of monoenergetic 200 keV beam of antimony ions incident on germanium. The range distribution of stopped Sb ions and the distribution of energy loss from the beam are presented.
