A functional whose Euler equation is the second-order self-adjoint form of the transport equation is used in conjunction with four-dimensional space-angle phase-space finite elements to derive a set of simultaneous algebraic equations for the even-parity angular flux. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the elimination of ray effects using the finite element method, and to illustrate the use of phase-space elements that are triangular in the spatial variables.
