The analytical solution of the transient radial diffusion equation with a nonuniform loss term
This paper presents an analytical solution to what is normally a numerical problem: radial diffusion of energetic electrons in planetary radiation belts, with the inclusion of loss processes. The authors broke it up into a set of smaller analytical problems, which is a clever approach. They show that this works not only for Earth but also Saturn and Jupiter.
