Paper Abstract

The specific intensity arising from an anisotropically scattering illuminated cylinder is calculated using the equation of radiative transfer. The solution is obtained in closed analytical form. A new simple liner integral equation is derived for the values of the specific intensity at the boundary of the cylinder. The novel method used for the solution of this problem leads immediately in a straightforward and systematical way to the appropriate basic equations for the problem at hand. This method applies equally well to similar scattering problems with other geometries.
