Pure and Applied Mathematics, Volume 74: Radiative Transfer on Discrete Spaces presents the geometrical structure of natural light fields. This book describes in detail with mathematical precision the radiometric interactions of light-scattering media in terms of a few well established principles. Organized into four parts encompassing 15 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the derivations of the practical formulas and the arrangement of formulas leading to numerical solution procedures of radiative transfer problems in plane-parallel media. This text then constructs radiative transfer theory in three ways. Other chapters consider the development of discrete radiative transfer theory from the local interaction principle. This book discusses as well the development of continuous radiative transfer theory. The final chapter deals with the task of formulating a mathematical foundation for radiative transfer theory. This book is a valuable resource for researchers in the field of radiative transfer theory whose interests transcend the physical and numerical aspects of the interaction of light with matter.
