Paper Abstract

An investigation of the normal incidence of an infinite plane wave on a slab of uniformly scattering media is undertaken using the PN-method. We demonstrate the computational competitiveness of the PN-method, not only in its ability to provide timely solutions even for strongly anisotropic scattering (g > 0.9), but also in its ability to simultaneously treat various theories of scattering such as the Henyey- Greenstein model, the Fokker-Planck forward scattering approximation using the Laplace-Beltrami operator, and the Leakeas-Larsen rational approximation. We also discuss the extendibility of the method to the study of backscatter and transmission due to normally incident collimated pencil beam illumination.
