From the journal Kerntechnik

Abstract

The singular eigenfunction approach using CN equations can be extended for high order anisotropic scattering (triplet scattering) to the Albedo problem. Case's eigenfunctions and the orthogonality relations of this scattering can be derived mathematically. Thereby, the infinite medium Green function can be written for an homogeneous medium in terms of singular eigenfunctions. Also using the HN method, the constant source albedo problem can be investigated for this type of scattering.

Kurzfassung

Die Methode singulärer Eigenfunktionen unter Verwendung von CN Gleichungen kann für anisotrope Streuung höherer Ordnung (Triplet-Streuung) auf das Albedoproblem angewendet werden. Die Case-Eigenfunktionen und die entsprechenden Orthogonalitätsrelationen können mathematisch abgeleitet werden. Dabei kann die Greenfunktion für unendliche Medien beschrieben werden für ein homogenes Medium in Form singulärer Eigenfunktionen der Methode elementarer Lösungen. Auch mit Hilfe der HN Methode kann das Albedoproblem einer konstanten Quelle für diese Art der Streuung untersucht werden.
