    Abstract

    Computer experiments to study spatial and angular distributions of relativistic electrons and positrons in a tungsten crystal are performed using the binary collision model. The results of computer experiments for <100> and <110> directions in a tungsten crystal showed that the mean square angle of multiple scattering depends on the particle charge sign and exceeds considerably the one in an amorphous target of the same thickness, in accordance with earlier theoretical predictions based on the model of multiple scattering by continuous potentials of the crystal axes.
