Title: Geometric correction for diffusive expansion in neutron transport equation

Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss the diffusive limit of steady neutron transport equation. We can show the classical boundary layer theory breaks down due to intrinsic singularity. Also, we propose a new formulation of boundary layer by Milne problem with geometric correction.
