The emergent flux for radiation transfer in an inhomogeneous half-space with internal source is obtained in terms of the source-function of the diffuse reflection problem. Modified Eddington method is used to calculate the diffuse problem and, hence, the emergent flux. Numerical result are given and compared with previous work.
