My goal is to generalize Chandrasekhar’s formulas to include partial Rayleigh Scattering. In my summer research, I successfully recalculated key tables and solutions from his book and I am working in generalizing his results for use in an infinitely deep electron atmosphere. Here, I will summarize how Chandrasekhar derived his formulas and how to potentially generalize them to include absorption.
