Radiative Transfer in a Gray Isothermal Spherical Layer
The local radiative flux in an isothermal spherical layer is systematically investigated. The functions h1(τ; τ1) τ2 and h2(τ; τ1, τ2) τ2, analogous to the planar functions E3(τ-τ1) and E3(τ2-τ), are studied and tabulated. Limiting solutions are presented and evaluated. The radiative flux from an isothermal spherical layer is presented in graphical and tabular form. A comprehensive review of radiative transfer in a spherical geometry is performed. © 1972.
