Abstract:In this work, a spectral collocation method is developed to simulate radiative transfer in a refractive planar medium. The space and angular domains of radiative intensity are discretized by Chebyshev polynomials, and the angular derivative term and the integral term of radiative transfer equation are approximated by spectral collocation method. The spectral collocation method can provide exponential convergence and obtain high accuracy even using few nodes. There is a very satisfying correspondence between th… Show more
