A Linear Discontinuous Galerkin Approximation for the Continuous Slowing Down Operator Academic Article uri icon


  • A linear discontinuous Galerkin treatment is developed for the continuous slowing down operator. Multigroup Legendre coefficients are derived that allow this treatment to be implemented in standard S//n codes. A synthetic acceleration scheme is developed to accelerate the outer iterations required by this treatment. A computational comparison between the diamond difference treatment and the linear discontinuous treatment is given.
