Paper Abstract

In this paper the asymptotic law for the radial distribution of the radiance density from a point isotropic source placed in a slab of a homogeneous absorbing and scattering medium has been obtained. The final formulae have been derived for both the stationary and time-dependent problems. The obtained law has been verified by comparison wiht Monte Carlo simulations.
