Part of a continuing study of numerical methods of solution of radiative transfer processes. Diffuse reflection and transmission coefficients are computed for radiative transfer in homogeneous slabs of finite thickness with isotropic scattering. The results are summarized in graphs of these coefficients for a complete range of albedos and thicknesses. Representative tables of transmission coefficients are also included. 38 pp.
