A physical model describing the production and decay of neutrons in a neutron coincidence counting detector is developed and used to derive the correlation functions for the neutrons in the detector system. The correlation functions serve as the basis for the modeling of dead-time effects for this as well as earlier models. An iterative scheme to correct the dead-time effects from measurements is suggested.
