In recent years, the first author has developed three successful numerical methods to solve the 1D radiative transport equation yielding highly precise benchmarks. The second author has shown a keen interest in novel solution methodologies and an ability for their implementation. Here, we combine talents to generate yet another high precision solution, the Matrix Riccati Equation Method (MREM). MREM features the solution to two of the four matrix Riccati ODEs that arise from the interaction principle of particle transport. Through interaction coefficients, the interaction principle describes how particles reflect from- and transmit through- a single slab. On combination with Taylor series and doubling, a high quality numerical benchmark, to nearly seven places, is established.
