A probabilistic description of neutron scattering in a polycrystalline material
(2013) MASY01 20132Mathematical Statistics
 Abstract (Swedish)
 The aim of this thesis is to give a statistical description of a neu
tron traversing a neutron detector system consisting of a polycrys
talline support material. The material used as support material in
this project is aluminium although the results are applicable to any
polycrystalline material. A mathematical description of the possible
interactions in the detector system will be given, from which the prob
abilistic nature of neutron scattering will be derived.
Alongside the main results there will also be a shorter mention of a
dierent approach to nding the stochastic behaviour of the neutron
scattering. This approach was however not fully pursued as it did not
produce the expected simplications and results. Last but not... (More)  The aim of this thesis is to give a statistical description of a neu

there will be a discussion about the future work which can be done
and how to continue this project as there is no complete solution to
the entire problem.
