Abstract

One speed, time-independent and homogeneous medium neutron transport equation is solved for second order scattering using the Anlı-Güngör scattering function which is a recently investigated scattering function. The scattering function depends on Legendre polynomials and the t parameter which is defined on the interval [−1,  1]. A half-space albedo problem is examined with the FN method and the recently developed SVD method. Albedo values are calculated with two methods and tabulated. Thus, the albedo values for the Anlı-Güngör scattering are compared with these methods. The behaviour of the scattering function is similar to İnönü’s scattering function according to calculated results.
