In this paper we present a product quadrature rule for the discretization of the well-known linear transport equation in slab geometry. In particular we give an algorithm for constructing the weights of the rule and prove that the order of convergence isO(n−3+δ), δ>0 small as we like. Numerical examples are given, and our formula is also compared with product Simpson rules. Finally, we examine a Nyström method based on our quadrature.
