Abstract:

A demonstration that the solution of the problem of multiple scattering in a slab that is illuminated by parallel rays of radiation can be expressed in terms of the solution of the problem in which there are isotropic sources of radiation. The quantities of interest for the monodirectional case the X, Y, I, S, J, and T functions are given algebraically in terms of the b and h functions that express the internal intensities for the isotropic source problem. For I, this avoids a matrix inversion, thus overcoming a difficulty associated with the direct application of Chandrasekhars invariance principles. This study is an extension of RM-4906-PR AD-630 121. Author
