Abstract

An approximate method for solving radiative Transfer equation in a slab medium with an isotropic scattering is presented. The method is based upon Legendre wavelets approximations. The differential and integral expressions which arise in the radiative transfer equation are converted into some linear systems of differential equations which can be solved for the unknown coefficient. Numerical examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique and a comparison is made with existing results.
