3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Programme DCXE was designed for the analysis of the diffusion phenomena of xenon in non-multiplying  media (slab geometry) and solves the Fick's second diffusion equation with boundary conditions. Initial distribution of xenon in  the media at time 0 and 0 value of distribution at both ends of media at any positive time.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Difference approximation is used to solve Fick's second diffusion equation. Strict stability condition is chosen between time and spatial intervals.
