Paper Abstract

We review the theory of the radiative transport equation governing the radiance in a random medium. Using symmetry and orthogonal properties of plane wave solutions, we can compute readily the Green's function for a uniform medium. We use this Green's function to develop a general theory for inhomogeneous media analogous to scattering theory for classical wave propagation.
