Abstract : The epithermal neutron energy spectrum is derived as a function of radial distance from a point isotropic monoenergetic neutron emitter in an infinite homogeneous scattering and absorbing medium. The derivation uses Condon and Breit's neutron energy spectrum as a function of number of collisions and Chandrasekhar's general solution to the problem of random flights. (Author)
