Abstract : A series of calculations on the penetration of gamma rays through homogeneous slabs has been made by the method of invariant imbedding. The dose transmission factors are tabulated for fifteen source energies in the range from 0.66 to 10.0 Mev, for sevel source obliquities, for slab thickness up to fifteen mean free paths, and for seven materials.
