Abstract

Mixed-hybrid methods generalize the existing mixed and hybrid methods combining their attractive features. A significant achievement is that not only odd- but also even-parity PN approximations are used for the angular discretization. This leads to a promising enclosing property in our numerical tests. Furthermore, we establish flux and current interface continuity properties from the Rumyantsev conditions, for which we outline a new derivation.
