Abstract : A description is given of the results of the application of singular integral equation theory to Chandrasekhar's X and Yfunctions. Both exact and asymptotic formulae are given for the unique functions which are analytic functions of their argument. Computations are reduced to the solution of rapidly convergent Fredholm equations and to the calculation of various quadratures. Numerical tables for the case of isotropic scattering will be published as a supplement to the Astrophysical Journal. (Author)
