Recently, the radiative conductive transfer equation in cylinder geometry was solved in semi-analytical fashion by the collocation method in both angular variables, using the S N procedure. Upon application of the decomposition method the resulting recursive system of S N radiative transfer equations was evaluated by the Laplace transform technique considering the non-linear term as source. In the present work we prove a heuristic convergence of the discussed solution inspired by stability analysis criteria and taking into account the influence of the parameter sets. Finally, we report on some case studies with numerical results for the solutions and convergence behaviour.
