Paper Abstract

This article proposes a new approach to the `forward problem' by directly solving the radiative transport equation. A new phase function introduced by the authors' previous work has been used in the new approach in a simplified form. A function modeling the spatial, directional and temporal distributions of the incident laser pulse is proposed. For every small time increment, analytical approximation solutions to the time-dependent radiative transport equation are formulated. Preliminary results of computer simulation of the approach are provided.
