Annotations
 definition: "The Eddington approximation can be used to obtain the intensity in a planeparallel atmosphere with isotropic frequencyindependent scattering. It assumes that the intensity is a linear function of μ = cosθ. i.e. Iν(μ,z) = a(z) + μb(z) where z is the normal direction to the slab atmosphere." (string)
