Abstract
We present an analytical solution of the distribution function and the density distribution for the Boltzmann photon transport equation in an infinite uniform isotropic medium. This solution is quantitatively accurate up to the second order cumulant approximation. The solution shows a clear picture of the time evolution of particle migration, from near ballistic, through snake-like, and then into the diffusive regime.
