To date, most of the work done using the response matrix technique has involved one-dimensional slab problems. In this paper, the method is applied to two-dimensional slab problems and the results are compared with Monte Carlo calculations. It was found that the error due to the numerical treatment of the spatial distribution could be substantial. However, various corrections based on physical arguments were found which significantly improved the results.
