$L_p$ and eigenvalue error estimates for the discrete ordinates method for two-dimensional neutron transport
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1989
The convergence of the discrete ordinates method is studied for angular discretization of the neutron transport equation for a two-dimensional model problem with the constant total cross section and isotropic scattering. Considering a symmetric set of quadrature points on the unit circle, error estimates are derived for the scalar flux in $L_P $ norms for $1 \leqq p \leqq \infty $. A postprocessing procedure giving improved $L_\infty $ estimates is also analyzed. Finally error estimates are given for simple isolated eigenvalues of the solution operator.
