The standard Milne problem, serving as an analytical benchmark for almost 50 years, is reconsidered in light of the numerical Laplace transform inversion. The application of the numerical inversion greatly reduces the effort in generating highly accurate numerical evaluations of solutions to particular transport problems. Le Caine's results for the integrated intensity are shown to Contain only 3 or 4 correct digits. The Milne problem has also been generalized to include a specularly reflecting boundary.
