In this work, the FN method with different numerical approximations is used to solve the constant source problem for the quadratic anisotropic scattering kernel. Case’s eigenfunctions and the orthogonality relations of this scattering are obtained analytically for one-speed and homogenous transport equation. The aim is to find the albedo values in plane geometry for the half-space when the medium boundary contains a plane source.
