On Combined Operational Method for Transfer Problems in Homogeneous, Spherical Media

  • T. H. Kho (a1) and K. K. Sen (a1)

Abstract

In this paper, the Combined Operational Method developed by Busbridge (1961) in connection with the radiative transfer problems in plane-parallel atmospheres has been extended to similar problems in isotropic scattering, homogeneous spherical media. The relevant auxiliary equation has been formulated, the scattering function defined and the integro-differential equation for such function deduced. For a medium having radial distribution of source in addition to the incident flux at the outer surface, the integro-differential equations for source function and emergent intensity have been established.
