Radiation of an Isothermal Plane-Parallel Layer

The radiative transfer equation (RTE) for a homogeneous plane-parallel layer of an emitting, absorbing, and scattering isothermal medium with an azimuthally symmetric radiation field can be written in the following dimensionless form:

(1a)

where

(1c)

Dimensionless quantity ω is called the albedo of a medium, or Schuster number. For brevity, subscript λ is omitted in designations of I, τ, ξ, and ω. The boundary conditions in s ...
