We have considered the transport equation for radiative transfer to a problem in semi-infinite non-conservative atmosphere with no incident radiation and scattering albedo ω0 < 1. Usint the Laplace transform and the Wiener-Hopf technique, we have determined the emergent intensity and the intensity at any optical depth. We have obtained theH-function of Dasgupta (1977) by equating the emergent intensity with the intensity at zero optical depth.
