Paper Abstract

The specific intensity arising from an anisotropically scattering illuminated slab or half space is calculated using the equation of radiative transfer. The solution is obtained in closed analytical form. The novel method used for the solution of this problem leads immediately in a straightforward- and systematical way to the known appropriate basic equations valid for the problem at hand, derived otherwise by ad-hoc methods. A new simple linear equation for the specific intensities at the boundary surfaces is also derived. This method applies equally well to similar scattering problems with other geometries.
