## Abstract

The slowing down equation for an infinite homogeneous monoatomic medium is solved exactly. The cross sections depend on neutron energy. The solution is given in analytical form within each of the lethargy intervals. This analytical form is the sum of probabilities which are given by the Green functions. The calculated collision density is compared with the one obtained by Bednarz and also with an approximate Wigner formula for the case of a resonance not wider than one collision interval. For the special case of hydrogen, the present solution reduces to Bethe's solution. (author)
