The one speed, time independent neutron transport equation for slab geometry with quadratic anisotropic scattering kernel is considered. Albedo, transmission factor and criticality thickness are calculated by the H N method. The numerical results obtained are listed for different selected parameters. It is shown that the method is concise and leads to fast converging numerical results. © Carl Hanser Verlag.
