The survival probabilities of charged particle traversing through matters are evaluated by solving the diffusion equation, taking account of radiation and ionization losses. The solutions corresponding to high and low incident energies are proposed respectively, and inaccuracies of the saddle point method appearing in case of large probabilities are removed by deriving the results via the complementary probabilities. The enough-accurate results will be valuable to improve the resolution of radiographic analyses with atmospheric muons, and others.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
