A graphical presentation of the numerical results for Chandrasekhar's X and Y functions of radiative transfer, covering wide ranges of slab thicknesses and albedos for single scattering. The tables on which the graphs are based are obtained by numerically integrating the integro-differential equations satisfied by the X and Y functions. 36 pp. (See also RM-4572-PR.)
