title: A Random Walk Approach for Light Scattering in Material
keywords: Random Walk, Kubelka-Munk, Light Scattering, First-Passage Time Probability, Narayana Numbers, Catalan Numbers, Chebyshev Polynomials
abstract: Understanding reflection is one of the key competences in graphic arts industry. A very popular approach was given by Kubelka and Munk [1931] who derived a simple relationship between the scattering and absorption coefficients and the overall reflectance. This paper presents an alternative approach which describes the behavior of light in matter as a special kind of random walk.

The first source gives you the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the installation of your web browser, at least one of these should (after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact your system administrator to install your browser correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
