This note presents the derivation of generalized Ambartsumian-Chandrasekhar X and Y functions for stationary transfer in a plane-parallel slab. An algebraic formula relating these functions to the usual reflection function is also presented, together with the appropriate generalization of the Chandrasekhar H-equations for the semi-infinite medium. The planetary problem will also be briefly discussed.
