Abstract : A typical translationally invariant linear transport problem for a halfspace is solved by the eigenfunction method. Using some derived identities for the solution of the associated homogeneous Hilbert problem it is shown that the usual cumbersome integrals occurring in halfspace problems can be reduced to a simple form. The usefulness of the identities is illustrated by solving the problem of a plasma confined to a halfspace by a diffuse reflecting wall. (Author)
