The paper presents the application of a version of Newtons method to the numerical solution of a basic nonlinear integral equation in the theory of radiative transfer. A sequence of rapidly convergent approximations to the H function of Chandrasekhar is determined. The method evaluates integrals by means of a gaussian quadrature formula, and the resulting equations can be used to obtain values quickly and accurately.
