A generalized spherical harmonics solution for radiative transfer models that include polarization effects
Review articleOpen access

AbstractA generalized spherical harmonics solution for all components (m ⩾ 0) in a Fourier representation of the Stokes vector basic to the scattering of polarized light is developed, and computational aspects of the solution are discussed in detail. The established solution is used in regard to two test problems to obtain numerical results, accurate, in general, to five significant figures, for the four Stokes parameters.
