The Milne problem, known as one of the classical problems of radiative transfer and neutron transport theory, is solved using the P-N method for a nonabsorbing medium (c = 1) with a linearly anisotropic scattering kernel. Specular and diffuse reflection boundary conditions are taken into account. The numerical results are listed for different selected parameters. Some results are also compared with the literature.
