We consider a formulation of Cauchy problem for Kolmogorov equation which corresponds a localized source of particles to be scattered by medium with given scattering amplitude density. The multiple scattering amplitudes are introduced and the corresponding series solution of the equation is constructed. We investigate the one-fold integral representation for the series terms, its estimations and values of photon number of a finite and point receivers. An application to X-ray beam scattering for orthogonal and inclined to a layer is considered.
