This work presents an acurate solution to the integral formulation for radiative transfer in a medium with diffusely reflecting boundaries. The formulation consists of integral equations for the intensity at boundaries and for the source function. Comparisons to existing results for the simplified case with non-reflecting boundaries show excellent agreement. The effects of scattering albedos, boundary reflectivities and optical sizes on the radiative transfer are examined.
