Title: THE SPHERICAL-HARMONIC METHOD AND ITS APPLICATION TO ONE VELOCITY NEUTRON PROBLEMS

Abstract

A form of the spherical-harmonic method is shown to solve the one- velocity Boltzmann equation in plane or spherical cases to any desired degree of accuracy. Graphs are presented which show the radii of the U/sup 235/ and Pu/sup 239/ cores surrounded by infinite tampers for a wide range of multiplication numbers and rrtios of tamper cross sections to core cross sections. (R.V.J.)
