μ = cos(Θsc) distribution for our test case (see text for more details) applied to photons which experienced already 10 scattering events. Black line correspond to Thomson formula while coloured lines correspond to K–N formula. In Thomson regime forward and backward scattering are equally probable and twice as likely to happen than a 90° scattering. In K–N regime, as the energy of the electrons increases with respect to the energy of the photon, forward scattering is favoured with respect to backward scattering (red line).
