The spencer-lewis equation of electron transport theory: A benchmark

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


The Spencer-Lewis equation of electron transport theory with an energy independent screened-Rutherford scattering kernel in an infinite medium is solved using a moment reconstruction technique. The solution is evaluated to a high degree of accuracy for use as a benchmark. The evaluation features general anisotropic scattering for a localized source or for a uniformly distributed source in a half-space.
