A new multigroup method for crosssections that vary rapidly in energy
Here, we present a numerical method for solving the timeindependent thermal radiative transfer (TRT) equation or the neutron transport (NT) equation when the opacity (crosssection) varies rapidly in frequency (energy) on the microscale ε; ε corresponds to the characteristic spacing between absorption lines or resonances, and is much smaller than the macroscopic frequency (energy) variation of interest. The approach is based on a rigorous homogenization of the TRT/NT equation in the frequency (energy) variable. Discretization of the homogenized TRT/NT equation results in a multigrouptype system, and can therefore be solved by standard methods.
