Title

Reflection Function for an Isotropically Scattering Finite Medium

Abstract

The reflection function for an isotropically scattering medium has been expressed in terms of Chandrasekhar's X and Y functions for a finite medium and in terms of Chandrasekhar's H function for a semi-infinite medium. Expressions for the directional-hemispherical reflectance, hemispherical-directional reflectance and hemispherical reflectance have been presented in terms of the X, Y, and H functions and their moments. Also, asymptotic expressions have been presented.
