# How do you solve the radiative transfer equation?

It's not a simple process. You will need to understand calculus just to follow the explanation, much less perform the calculations.

All of the equations are already calculated; all you have to do is plug in your particular data.

Several numerical techniques, including discretizing the domain, approximating the differential equation with difference equations, solving iteratively or using statistical sampling techniques, can be used to solve the radiative transfer equation. These techniques include the finite difference method, the discrete ordinates method, and Monte Carlo simulations.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
