A mathematical model for forecasting the dose distributions in the volume of a low atomic-number material when irradiated with a beam of γ-photons using the data of measurements in the plane of the central section of the beam at several levels from the surface to the depth is developed. The results of modeling of the dose distributions are presented.

Key words
