Exponential decay phases of electron and proton fluxes in solar energetic particle (SEP) events are investigated for the period from 1974 to 2010 on the basis of IMP-8 and SOHO spacecraft data. The exponential decay of particle fluxes is possible under the invariable integral properties of the surrounding space, which is homogeneous and quasi-stationary in a certain near-solar sector. Consecutive events (sequences of events) with similar exponential decays allow these sectors of space homogeneity to be expanded up to 90°, and sometimes up to 180° and more.
