Wavelet analysis is presented for solving the radiative transfer equation for a scattering medium in a one-dimensional plane-parallel geometry. Some properties of the wavelet transform for numerical approximation of radiative heat transfer are demonstrated. The governing equations are reduced to a system of first-order ordinary differential equations. Linear anisotropic scattering is assumed in order to compare the results with the previous researchers. The method of analysis is quite general since it only requires that the scattering phase function is square integrable. The numerical solutions indicate that wavelet approximation is promising.
