Abstract : The Landau theory of energy straggling is ex tended to provide a method of calculating straggling distributions for a beam of charged particles which has penetrated more than one layer. With this method the common experimental situation in which a beam penetrates several absorbing layers before entering the material under study can be handled almost as easily as the case of one layer. Approximations involved are consistent with the Landau theory and re sults valid for thin layers. (Author)
