Abstract : A method is presented for calculating gamma ray transmission data for any depth distribution of secondary gamma radiation in plane singlematerial slabs. The method utilizes a weighting scheme and appropriate monoenergetic secondary gamma ray transmission data. The weighting scheme is based on apolynomial description of secondary gamma ray source strength as a function of slab depth. (Author)
