Analytical Solutions for the Pencil-Beam Equation with Energy Loss and Straggling
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2012
In this article, we derive equations approximating the Boltzmann equation for charged particle transport under the continuous slowing down assumption. The objective is to obtain analytical expressions that approximate the solution to the Boltzmann equation. The analytical expressions found are based on the Fermi-Eyges solution, but include correction factors to account for energy loss and spread. Numerical tests are also performed to investigate the validity of the approximations.
