Abstract

A method of analysis is presented for solving radiation transfer due to a point source in an absorbing, isotropically scattering, inhomogeneous sphere, which is subjected to a diffusely reflecting boundary. The space-dependent single-scattering albedo is represented in the form ω(r) = ΣKk=0 DK rk, where r is the optical variable and Dk are the known expansion coefficients. The effects of various functional forms of albedo on the incident radiation, angular distribution of radiation intensity and emissivity are examined.
