The spectral Green's function (SGF) method is used to solve numerically the transport of neutrons in an infinite homogeneous cylindrical domain. In the method, the scattering of neutrons is assumed to be isotropic and the transport equation in cylindrical geometry is reduced to plane-like transport equation by using our reasonable approach. Then, the plane-like transport equation is solved by using the SGF method and the results are compared with those already obtained by the Diamond Difference (DD) scheme to check the accuracy of the results. The agreement of the results is good and it can be concluded that the SGF method is very effective,for the numerical solution of the transport equation.
