We derive formulas for the minimal positive solution of a particular nonsymmetric Riccati equation arising in transport theory. The formulas are based on the eigenvalues of an associated matrix. We use the formulas to explore some new properties of the minimal positive solution and to derive fast and highly accurate numerical methods. Some numerical tests demonstrate the properties of the new methods.
