The analyze of the applicability of diffusion approximation for the radiation transfer equation with account of Сompton scattering

I. P. Yarovenko

2011, issue 1, P. 99–107

This paper deals with diffusion approximation for the radiation transfer equation which takes into account Сompton scattering on electrons. An analytical and a numerical examples are used to compare the solution of radiation transfer equation with it's diffusion approximation.
