Paper Abstract

A numerical comparison of algorithms for solving the radiative transfer equation by the Monte-Carlo method is performed for the direct simulation and local estimations. The problems of radiative transfer through a turbid medium slab in the scalar and vector case is considered. The case of reflections from the boundaries of the medium is analyzed. The calculations are performed in a wide variation of parameters of the medium. It is shown that the calculation time with the same accuracy for the local estimation method is less than one - two orders of magnitude.
