Boundary value problem involving a simple Fokker-Planck equation

Daniel Stein, Ira B. Bernstein

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The Fokker-Planck equation μ∂f/∂x = α∂/∂μ [(1 - μ2)∂f/∂μ], describing particles undergoing elastic small angle collisions with infinitely massive scatterers in a slab, is solved in a variety of limits by analytic and numerical means.
