Author’s summary: The frequency polygon method with track-length estimators for the global solution of the radiation transport equation in a slab is considered. A new method for finding an upper bound for the error in the $$\mathbb C$$-space metric is suggested. Values of the parameters of the method (the number of grid points and the number of trajectories) that are optimal with regard to the resulting error estimate are obtained. The results obtained are tested on two examples.
