An S2 Synthetic Acceleration Scheme for the One-Dimensional Sn Equations with Linear Discontinuous Spatial Differencing Academic Article uri icon


  • An S2synthetic acceleration scheme is developed for the one-dimensional Snequations (slab and sphere) with linear discontinuous spatial differencing. A Fourier analysis shows that the scheme is unconditionally stable for a model problem. Computational results demonstrate the effectiveness of the technique for varying cell thickness and scattering anisotropy.
