Paper Abstract

Generalization of small angle modification method of spherical harmonics in a case of a point monodirectional (PM) light source in an infinite turbid medium with an anisotropic scattering is carried out. Within the framework of the deduced generalization, a solution of the vector radiation transfer equation for an unpolarized PM-radiant is obtained. The expressions featuring the state of polarization of scattered light are given in a form convenient for use in engineering practice. The obtained expressions are analyzed and it is shown, that the minimum of polarization coincides with the direction of sighting on the maximum of radiance, which corresponds to the Umov law.
