Abstract:
The analytical solution to a model time-dependent continuous lethargy photon transport equation is evaluated numerically to obtain a benchmark solution using the Laplace transforms coupled with the multiple collision expansion method. The benchmark solution is then used to check the accuracy of the multigroup approximation. Excellent agreement between continuous lethargy benchmarks and multigroup approximation is obtained.
